  • The dorms at M.C.L.A. are fantastic. Freshmen have the option of living in Hoosac Hall or Berkshire Towers. Hoosac Hall is the more typical college dorm, with large halls filled…

    Food was average and students spoken to say it is good in general if boring at times.

    It's not that bad, it just gets old. You really appreciate your mom's cooking. :) As part of your meal plan, you get money each semester for the P.O.D. It's our on-campus convenience store. Make this money last the whole semester and try not to blow through it right away. You can also use this at Subway or the coffee shop. We also get Blazer Bucks. You can use this for delivery or eating at many local places in town. Our food service has just changed to no trans-fats.

    There is food located on campus which is good, but I'm not sure how great for those who plan to live on campus and eat it regularly. The food in the local area is excellant though! Angelina's, Water Street Grill, etc.

    The meal plan is good if you need something on the go, but too expensive. If you don't use all the money on the card, basically you're paying for nothing. You get what you get. no meal plan senior year, which can either suck or be a good thing.

    The food and dining is probably the thing I like least about MCLA. The food is not as bad as people make it seem but it could still be better. The dining area is too small and I really dislike how we can't get take-out.

    Very wide array of food and very well prepared as well. Though as many would find, after repeatedly eating the same food for a certain amount of time you may get tired and want variety. In the case of an event like this, staying in your dorm and preparing something yourself or going out to eat may be a wise choice.

    It's good if you're a freshman/sophomore, nothing really special unless you are a greek member as a junior/senior.

    There are 4 sororities and 2 fraternities. I'm a member of one of the sororities and it is the best decision I have ever made.

    Though I am not affiliated with any sorority, I do know that M.C.L.A. has several fraternities and sororities available. Most of them require Sophomore status before a student can pledge, while others allow Freshmen in. Many of the Greek organizations have houses just off of the campus, and will have routine meetings to assist the members academically and socially.

    the sororities and fraternities are just off campus and house parties almost every weekend. most are involved in community service and they're always welcoming newcomers.
