    It isn't home cooking, but it's really not bad. We have two different meal options and a coffee/smoothie/snack shop. The main cafeteria offers plenty of variety, and except for a few sad meals now and then on weekends, generally does a pretty good job.

    Usually there is a variety of food to pick from. It isn't always the best.. Try to at least try something new every week or you will be stuck eating a sandwhich everyday like me!

    The food is ok. There are a lot of options to choose from. There are options for vegetarians and people with food allergies. The space is pretty clean when you go to eat. There are TV's that you can watch different sports on.

    The food on some days can be really great in the cafeteria, the macaroni and cheese is one of my favorites, or made to order chicken alfredo is a crowd favorite as well. If the food in the caf doesn't sound that great you can always go to the hub and eat as well, with a lot of different options ranging from burgers to customized salads.

    They just built a new cafeteria here, the food can get a bit repetitive, but it tastes good! There is also a cafe where you can order sandwiches, wraps, pasta, coffee, etc.

    There isn't any Greek life, but we don't really need it.

    There are no frats or sororities here, but the people in your dorm are much better than either of those could be!
