    the dining hall is alright. they food is normally pretty good, but as a somewhat picky eater, i occasionally have some issue with it. on those days, i just have cereal or pizza or a salad, which they always have. there is also a bagel place, a sushi place, a pizza place, and a small store in the bottom of the student union, all of which are pretty good. there is also a coffee shop in the library, which is good, and a few fast food place in the landings (an apartment complex just off campus). so there are plenty of choices.

    d hall is crowded during "meal times." the heavy traffic times are around 10, 12, and 6. if you can eat between those times rather than during then you will have a much easier time. the food is mediocre at best, but sometimes we get chicken nuggets so it's okay. on weekends you have brunch and dinner. please be respectful of the workers (i am one of them). also there are more places to eat than the dining hall. you can eat in the stu, outta here, or the restaurants that are on main street.

    Well like many young people entering their freshman year, I gained the freshman fifteen. It's hard to monitor yourself when there are so many tempting quick and easy things to eat. Use you meal plans wisely and eat your fruits and veggies.

    The dining hall has its good days and its not so good days, but there is always something to eat. Not only are there the items the dining hall makes, but there is a salad and fruit bar, smoothie station, omelet station, and panini station, so students can make use out of the stations and get creative for their meals. There are several restaurants (sit-down and fast food) around the campus as well as the Student Union, if you want something other than dining hall food.

    The dining hall in Longwood is not the best. I ate there for quite a while, but then stopped because I really wanted to eat better and healthier food. They don't have very many options avaliable. I often find myself eating at Chik-Fil-A or Sweetfrog down the street.

    Many people at Longwood half-complain, half-like the d-hall dinning hall. It is a buffet style and it depends on the day to how decent it is. There are a variety of choices though. There are always fruits and vegetables. The best thing about dhall is the comment cards. I love nacho day and once, when I wrote that I missed nacho day on the card, they served nachos the very next day. Besides dhall, there is many things you can get with your bonus dollars included in your meal plan in your tuition. There are also plenty of local small town restaurants and dinners to choose from!

    On campus locations are great - Chik-fil-A, Moe's, Lancer Cafe where you can use your bonus dollars that come with your meal plan. One of the greatest things about Longwood and Farmville is the size - everything is relatively close together, you can easily find a restaurant in town that suits your appetite - Buffalo Wild Wings, Domino's, Pino's (Italian restaurant,) Subway, etc. D-hall has to-go for students who don't want to deal with the hassle of a crowded dining hall during the busy hours. The food is great there; salad bars, ice cream machines, and grilled foods. They do try to meet the wants of the different student demographics, D-hall is willing to listen to your suggestions for new food items as well.

    no one will hate or discriminate whether you are or aren't in greek life. just don't hate on greek life and show up on to their parties. there is a bit of rivalry and sure there is some cliche behavior, but i have met nice people on both sides. i'm not a greek, but i do admire them a bit. they do have camaraderie, and they do a lot of community service.

    Greek life is wonderful here at Longwood University. All of the houses are very respectful of their pledges. I personally pledged Delta Zeta, and am now serving as philanthropic president. I am very excited about our future fundraising events.

    Greek life is huge at Longwood with a variety of different sororities and fraternities. Freshman can't pledge until the spring semester, but there are open houses and opportunities to check them out.

    Greek life is great because you find your group of friends. Life long friends that are at people's weddings, god parents to children, future roomates, or spouses. However greek organizations are extremely judgemental towards eachother and there are all kinds of reputations about each house but you really need to get to know everyone to make a full judgement on your own. Greek Life is really all there is to do in Farmville so its best to make friends with people in houses if you dont want to go greek yourself
