  • Suite style :) there are bathrooms for every two rooms. It's so nice not to have to share a bathroom with the whole floor. The halls have great atmospheres…

Student Responses to Review Topic: Food And Dining

    The two main places where you can use your meal plan is the Den and the Marketplace. The Den is smaller, but it serves better food. The downside is that it's located up campus by Spooner and West Hall. The Markeplace is much bigger and offers more variety. It's located down campus, meaning that it's near the main dorms. The downside though is that the food is meh. The university also offers dining dollars or what we call cat cash to spend on in-campus dining such Fieras, Starbucks, Smoothie King, Temaki & Tea, Cat Trax, etc.

    The best place to eat (with your meal plan) is the WildCat Den. The only problem with the Den is that it's located in the UC, which is primarily convenient for students in Spooner or West Hall. The Marketplace has a pretty repetitive menu and the food isn't always the best. There are other eateries on campus such as Fieras, Temaki and Tea, Smoothie King, Starbucks, and Melted. Those aren't covered by your meal plan, so you can use your dining dollars, or just cash or a card.

    Food is excellent and is easy to get to when in the dorms. Open mostly all the time. A large array of food to choice from.

    The food is pretty good, but after a while it feels like there isn't any variety. It's a lot better than high school food though.

    The food on campus is good but it gets old fast. However, we do have a Starbucks, a grilled cheese restaurant, and a Mexican restaurant on-campus. Other than this, all off-campus dining is delicious

    Greek Life is not very prominent since there is no Greek houses. They do have their meetings and stuff, but everything they do is low key unless you get accepted into their sorority/fraternity.

    The Greek life isn't too big around here, but much like the clubs, you will find a sorority or fraternity that will fit your personality.

    Greek life is a HUGE way to get involved. If you want a group of close nit friends, the family feel then Greek is definitely the way to go. You meet so many new people and have the ability to volunteer in your community.

    Greek life is kind of small. We have four sororities and 2 fraternities. Then we also some fine arts fraternities and academic fraternities. Don't let that steer you away though its a great time and you make tons of cool people. I'm in a sorority here and its the best decision i have made since coming up here. We are involved on campus and we volunteer too.
