    The dining hall boasts both a pizza kitchen, and a stir fry station on top of their salad bar, grill, sandwich/wrap station, and dessert bar. Outside of that you have an in-house convenience store for all your last minute needs, a snack bar in the Beaver Dam (the student's favorite hang-out), a second cafeteria downstairs, and a fully stocked Starbucks. With all of these options you will always have something different to try out.

    The variety of areas and foods to choose from is excellent. A meal and ambience for every occasion whether a quiet coffee break or a get together grilled lunch.

    The campus provides food through Soldexo, who are really hit or miss when it come to quality of food. If you live on campus you are required to have a meal plan, but if you live off of campus, save your money.

    Being a freshaman this year the food was a adjustment from having home cooked meals, and I didn't like it to much. But then 2nd semester they started changing things up and it has became alot better and more enjoyable.

    The food is not like you would expect it to be. It is actually very good. There are three different cafes to get food at. They all offer a different variety of foods at each cafe. There are plenty of options for food choice. There is something that everyone will enjoy.

    The food at Minot State is actually really good. Most people think of school food as being bad, but they have many choices and they have reasonable prices.

    The food here has declined in quality pretty significantly since my second semester. A changeover of management to its current status may have been the cause, or it may have been less money going to the company and more being siphoned into athletics thanks to the NCAA. Food has become very basic meat-and-potatoes for most of the year, missing out on much of the interesting meals and creativity from my first year. While it's nice that we now have some new features like the waffle station, a softserve machine, and a new flavored water dispenser, these weren't things that we really needed. Granted, the food is certainly edible and it will fill you up if you are hungry, but it is nothing spectacular. Very basic cafeteria food, and it's at least better than what I had back in high school.

    The Greek life is not good at this school! If you are trying to go somewhere with a big Greek life I would not attend this school for that.

    The Greek system here has returned after being buried for about 25 years. The only catch is that you have to be a sophomore or higher to join, otherwise you just have to ask about it.

    We have one fraternity and (as of this spring) one sorority, so if you've been interested in the brother or sisterhood of Greek life, but were hesitant because of the intense picture that has been painted by movies and tv shows, know that that is not the case here. The fraternity fellows can be a little crazy, but they're nice guys. I am a member of the recently re-instated sorority and I am so excited to begin our first full year back on campus! We are looking to make a good name for ourselves at the school and in the town, and have already managed to raise over $500 for the Minot YWCA as a result of a spring fundraiser.
