    There are plenty of food options. Monmouth college has the best food options that I have had over all colleges that I have visited.

    Cafeteria food was lacking here. Not a lot of healthy choices to choose from. The freshman fifteen came even faster than just from the partying.

    The only downfall to the jolly Kim's cafeteria is his unwillingness to diversify. All-too-often the same foods appear and one leaves the cafeteria feeling full but unfulfilled. The around-the-clock cereal bar is a nice treat and nobody complains when the omelet bar is open. The always tasty Monty's Sub is a nice retreat when you don't want the cafeteria food.

    The food there is ok given the lack of choices, but if you are not as much of an eater or as picky with your food choice you should be fine. There's also a sandwich place in the lower level of the complex. With a store on the same level where you can get what ever you may need if you become hungry during the night.

    The cafeteria has a variety of options in buffet style. Times are decent. There are also a number of other places to eat on campus such as a sub shop, chinese, pasta, etc - though it is not generally very healthy, but they are taking measures to ensure that there are healthier options.

    The food in the caf is actually really delicioius, which I found surprising. There's different options every day so we don't get bored, and there's always healthy/vegetarian foods for those of us who don't really feel like a burger or an enchilada or whatever else they have that particular day.

    The food was ok, but it's expected of college food, so expect to buy lots of food that is already made that you can already eat or make in the microwave.

    I have many friends in Greek life who love it. Although I am not part of any, they do make a difference of being on campus that keeps the college really connected to the community.

    Greek life is prominent. I have many friends in sororities and fraternities. Monmouth College was actually the birthplace of 2 Greek sororities.

    The Greeks on campus are so different from what I expected. I thought they would be like the Hollywood version: snobby and preppy. But everyone is really so nice and welcoming!

    i am not personally associated with any fraternities or sororities on campus. there are several options for anyone considering joining and the organizations seem to have strong ties between members.
