Student Responses to Review Topic: Food And Dining

  • Jun-30-2015 I am a current student here

    Our dining hall is nationally ranked, which we often take for granted. As a student-athlete who travels to other schools and experiences their dining as well, I can surely say none of them have been better than the Berg. Of course we still have days when even I, among the most praiseful of our dining hall, think the options are lacking, but those days aren't too often and still always have campus-made pizza, salad bar, burgers, and the deli station. We also use grass-fed, never frozen beef which has left me so spoiled. I'm a foodie I could go on forever. One thing I will end with is that the hours aren't the best. We have one dining hall and it closes at 8 on weekdays and 7 on weekends which is pretty early. But throughout the day it remains open, which isn't true at all schools so that is nice. We also have a few campus restaurants which are also great too and GQ (groceries and fast food) is almost always open.

    The food here is amazing, hands down. They have even won awards and contests for their food.

    AMAZING!! We were actually ranked top 5 in the country I believe this year. While it can get a bit monotonous as far as options, the food is great and easy to access. Much MUCH better than any where else I toured.

    My parents love to point out how spoiled I am food-wise, compared to their colleges. But you will get bored of your options eventually, especially if you only eat the pizza. Take advantage of the other stations, the lines never are as long as they look. And try out the Knoshery, but avoid there rice (they make it to dry). For meal plans try to go for one with more dining dollars. You will not use the dining hall as much as you think and will end up with excess swipes.

    Pretty good food. Only one dining hall so the food could get a little bland but it is pretty high quality for a college campus.

    My friends from other schools who come to visit rave about the food...it's just that good! My only issue (hence the 4) is that there are only 3 places to eat on campus and after 8, the dining hall and Freshens close so you're stuck with GQ.

    Muhlenberg redesigned their dining hall within the past year, and has fantastic food with lots of options provided by Sodexo. There's vegetarian, gluten-free, and kosher options. You can also snack at the General's Quarters (GQ) or the LSC cafe at the gym.

    Wide variety of food with some fresh, local options. Good vegetarian selection as well. The campus dining program focuses on sustainability.

    I am not a part of greek life here, but it does exist. I think something like 20% of students are involved, so it's not huge, but it holds it's place on campus and most students do go to frat parties at least a few times in their years here. There are only a few options for frats and sororities but we are getting a new one this upcoming year.

    Overrated, a fraternity got kicked off campus last year for hazing. And most of them still do haze. If you aren't in one they tend to be annoying, especially since they recruit freshmen without pledging them, even though they are not supposed to.

    A few greek fraternities on campus. There is no pressure to join them and they are not obnoxious. A very good balance of them between school life and greek life.

    I'll be honest, it's OK. There are always things to do on the weekends and it's a great way to meet people. There just aren't many to choose from and about 20% of people on campus participate so there is no pressure to be in one!

    About 1/3 of all students at Muhlenberg participate in Greek Life. Students aren't permitted to rush until their sophomore year. Greek life has a presence, but isn't exclusionary.
