    The dinning hall food is ok. It's really good on somedays, like when we have guest or on sushi Wednesdays. Other days it's kinda repetitive, like weekends. It closes early but the staff are friendly. I definitely recommend eating out or buying food for weekends.

    Like any other college, the food varies on the day and gets worse during the weekend. I am doing the work-study program in the dining room of Meredith and I can tell when people are actually putting in effort to cook the food for the students there. Some of the people who cook the food are better and take time to make sure it is good for individuals to eat. The dining hall has a buffet style layout, but there is also a place that will make food made to order, but you have to pay for it. The food at Meredith is pretty decent, but nothing like a home cooked meal!

    It varies each day. Typical, buffet style for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. You can either use your meal plan at the Belk Dinning Hall or the Bee-Hive (grab and go). If you live in the Oaks Apartments, usually people don't have the meal plan and cook in their apartment. If you live in the dorms, you usually have to go out and eat on the weekends since both Belk Dinning Hall and Bee-Hive are closed.

    Typically pretty good variety, especially for Meredith's size. A lot of times the food on the weekends leaves more to be desired.

    They have the cafeteria and they they have the beehive cafe where they have more collegely types of food. The food was amazing and I was very impressed with everything and the secretion of what they had.

    Belk Dining Hall (BDH) can be very hit or miss, also watch your plates and silverware, if it doesn't look clean send it back and get anew one. Meredith also had a new initiative about campus sustainability, green takeout trays are given to students to use for take hall food with you . but PLEASE return your dirty ones before you pick up a clean one. the Beehive cafe, located on the second floor of the cate student centers has lots of made-to-order options but there is generally one person behind the grill at a time and it takes longer, but the food is higher quality

    The dining hall has great space! they just renovated the space so now is very chic. Breakfast is the best food, so do not EVER miss it. If you are vegetarian I have to be honest, they don't know what tasty vegetarian food is. the rest of the food depends but it is very convenient since most of us don't know how to cook or we just don't have time to.

    There are no sororities at Meredith. There's an honor program and honor societies for the major you declare in. Instead we have a big and lil' sis program, which is a tradition in your junior year, which promotes sisterhood.

    We do not have individual sororities because we are like one big sorority! Sisterhood is a theme projected through every tradition, and one of our traditions includes receiving a Big/Lil Sis (like many sororities do)!

    There is no Greek Life but being in an all girls school is really like one big sorority!

    Since Meredith is an all women's college we think of ourselves as one big sorority so we don't have any form of Greek life. We have Greek affiliated clubs like if you get a certain GPA you can get inducted into the Kappa society and tons more.
