    The cafeteria looked amazing when I visited, the food smelled pleasant and my tour guide said the food got better every year. There were also many different options on where you could eat depending on the meal plan.

    All dining areas are usually kept clean and orderly. It takes a while for your stomach to get used to the food though.

    There are always many options to choose from when it comes to meals. Breakfast is the best meal at the cafeteria. Not home-cooking though

    The campus dining have its ups and downs. But the Mid Café and Wolf Den are the best spot to eat at on campus.

    If I was just rating the cafe it would be a 1 but the midcafe is 3 so that is why I am giving it a 2 star.

    The kitchen staff are so nice, and the food is really good. Sometimes it all starts to taste the same, but other than that it's great. The chef also asks for student input at a biweekly meeting and works to in-cooperate those ideas.

    The cafeteria food is alright. There are good days and really bad days. And they try to mix it up so you don't get bored. But there was a certain point where I was eating just a salad every day because everything else looked so gross. They almost always have pizza, the salad bar, and some sort of burger and fries. The other dining facilities tend to be really greasy, but its good when you need a change.

    To my knowledge their are three sororities and three fraternities on campus. All six of them make sure to be involved in charitable activities and really get students involved in school spirit.
