    The dining hall (Dillin) is decent. They have a spectacular meal once a month, and pizza, salad, and sandwiches available every day along with several hot choices. You can also use Flex Dollars to buy to-go style items from the Wildcat Express, or at Starbucks!

    Dillon is pretty good. Cafeteria food is never going to be as tasty as home cooked meals or restaurants, but they have a wide selection of vegetarian, vegan and gluten free options, as well as a high percentage of organic and local grown foods. They're also really good at listening to what the students want, so put in a request if you want a favorite dish or style of food more.

    The food is very bland at the dining hall. There is a Starbucks on campus, which makes life easier. There's also a place called Catty Shack where we can buy snacks and microwave meals.

    The food is pretty terrible. There is a definite lack of variety and even those meals that are diverse don't often taste very good. There's almost always a hamburger or pizza option and there's a salad and bread bar, but the actual meals are usually pretty tasteless. However, the cafeteria people work hard at what they do and are mostly pretty friendly if you talk to them.

    The food here is awful. Freshmen are stuck with the standard meal plan and end up wasting quite a bit of money by the end of the semester with the huge number of points left over at the end of Spring semester.

    The food is not that bad, but you can get tired of it after awhile. But if you get bored from eating in the dining hall, you can switch it up and go to the Catty Shack (a sandwich shop) or Jazzman's (the coffee shop) which are both on campus.

    The food is pretty good. Brunch on the weekends is my favorite meal. Sometimes the meals can be repetitive, but there are always many choices.

    The food leaves much to be desired at the campus dining facilities; we are catered to and have chefs, but the quality of our meals are generally lack luster and often overpriced. However, over the course of the year we will be adding a Starbucks and rennovating the cafeteria.

    Greek life doesn't dominate social life at Linfield, but it is definitely present. There are four sororities and four fraternities. The frats have houses, but the sororities don't. They're very welcoming, and last year everyone that applied found a home in a sorority.

    Though I am not involved in Greek life, the students that I see that are in it seem to enjoy it and are always involved in a number of activities designated by their sorority.

    There is a definite presence of Greek Life on campus. There are no sorority houses, but there are fraternity houses. Almost everywhere you go, there is some advertisement for Greek Life.

    There are four fraternities, each with their own house. There are four sororities, but none of them have a house. Greek life is very popular, especially among the female students.

    I am not in Greek Life, but I know people that are. Our Greek Life students stand for good causes and create their own type of family.
