    Dining sounded great, and as a vegetarian there seemed to be plenty of options that I'd be able to choose from.

    My mother is a chef, so I have high standards. But as far as college dining hall food goes, it's not too shabby. There are quite a few options too.

    I'm a vegan and my tour guide made sure to emphasize that there is food in the dining halls to cater to basically any dietary need.

    The food is great! As a vegetarian, I have never had a problem finding good healthy food. Midd also prides itself in finding awesome local food to advertise. There are 3 dining halls on campus, and one Grille.

    The food's good and varied not only in the dining halls but when different groups host their own dinners. The town also has some restaurants.

    Midd food is amazing. Lots of the ingredients are locally sourced and organic, and Midd offers a wide range of foods for everyone - even people with dietary needs (i.e. gluten free, vegetarian, vegan, Kosher, Halal, etc). Every day it's like eating in a restaurant.

    The food was yummy when I visited. However, I have heard the food is best when prospective students visit. Fact or False? I'll see on campus.

    None! A refreshing change; there is no pressure here to join a sorority or fraternity.

    Doesn't exist - which I thank the lord for everyday. Although we do have social houses which are very similar but don't possess the ugly culture of greek life and are much tamer.
