    Food and dining here is a little unreasonable. First of all, it's expensive. The cafeteria meals are often distasteful. An alternative to the cafeteria is the University Market and Snack Bar, where the food is a little better. However, prepare to spend a pretty penny on the snacks there per your meal plan (you receive flex dollars or student meal credit at the beginning of each semester). Bottom line: I suppose it is not much worse from other universities other than every food being vegetarian (which is fine with me).

    The food is edible and that is it. The best parts are the grill, vegan line, and the market food. The main line is not that good. However, it is a buffet and the salad bar is excellent.

    The food is okay. Oakwood promotes the health message, so we don't usually have fast food material food at this school. Here we eat strictly vegan food. So for those who are vegetarian and are on a strict diet, this is the place for you.

    Oakwood University, being a religious institution, doesn't offer meat on campus but does its best to offer the healthiest and most nutritious meals it can. The dining is well organized and great.

    I am not a huge fan of our food. They only serve vegetarian and vegan options. but don't worry, there are plenty of places that serve meat near by.

    Some students choose to go Greek- but have to do so at other schools. Oakwood does not support fraternities or sororities.

    There is no Greek Life on Oakwood University's Campus. Only clubs and organizations, I honestly don't feel like I'm missing out at all with all the other great things to join and participate in.
