Student Responses to Review Topic: Food And Dining

    The food and dining at Marist College is amazing. There are so many options. Just this semester, a new dining option was added. This new dining option offers sandwiches from a local vendor, flatbreads, smoothies, salads, pasta, etc. and it is a hit among Marist College students. The main dining hall's taco/cupcake Tuesday is also a fan favorite.

    The dining hall is really beautiful and because there is only one location, there is always a chance of seeing people you know. Dinner is a really fun time to go with all of your friends and sit there for over an hour. The lines in the dining hall are not that bad and you will find something that you'll like guaranteed.

    Marist probably has one of the best dining halls compared to most colleges. All of my friends from other universities will agree that the food is great, and we have so many options! It is easy to find something new to eat every week as well as stay healthy.

    My favorite time to go to the dining hall is for breakfast! I love the omelets. Overall there is a pretty good variety of food offered, but like anything, if you eat it constantly you will eventually get sick of it. It is definitely convenient however and I do like the variety.

    They have a lot of options, however some stations are better than others. They have other places to get food besides the dining hall that you can pay for using Marist money or thrifty cash, so if you don't want anything in the dining hall there are always other options.

    My best advice with food is vary your options at the beginning. I found a few things that I liked right at the beginning of college and ate those things without fail. Now, I'm completely sick of them, and have to venture out and try new things that I don't like as much. I must say, however, the Valley Cafe (open every Tuesday) has some eclectic options to vary your dining experience.

    Sodexo food has so many choices for students to choose from. The dining hall meal plan is very good as well as having the chance to use thrifty cash to get other types of food from other dining services on campus such as sandwiches and salads.

    There's always a lot of options in the dining hall, and you can usually find something that you like. There's also a bunch of cafes on campus (and Starbucks) that you can go to for meals as well.

    There is Greek life on campus. If Greek life is something you are interested, it is present on campus, but if it is not something you are interested in, you will not feel left out.

    There is greek life but it is not offered as much of a priority as other clubs or activities within campus. The people who participate within it suggest that they love it, but it is absolutely not crucial for you to join like it as some larger schools.

    Greek Life is almost a non-presence. If you want it, it's there for you, but if you aren't into it, you will not feel left out in the slightest.

    Marist has four sororities and three fraternities therefore Greek life is not huge but it is definitely a fun option for those interested.

    There are sororities and fraternities here at Marist, but they don't make up the majority of campus life. If you are not part of the Greek Life you will not get judged, by the Greeks. If you have an interest in it do it, but if not that's okay too.

    The Greek Life at Marist is pretty cool because it isn't too excessive. Every sorority and frat is welcoming, however, not very diverse because of the school's demographics.
