Student Responses to Review Topic: Food And Dining

    Although I don't have a meal plan because I do live off campus, the food in the dining hall is great! I started college at another university and the food there wasn't so great so I wasn't expecting much at OVU either; but boy was I wrong! The kitchen usually has a couple different warm entrees as well as the regular bars - such as the hamburger bar and salad bar.

    Aladdin food service does the cafeteria food. Sometimes the food is really good, and other times it's less than awesome. Consistency seems to be their shortcoming.

    They have more than enough food to eat. Its a buffet, and have variety of different kinds of food to choose from.

    The food in the dining is not that bad most the time. Sometimes the food just gets boring after having it every other week or everyday! The Dining hall needs to be bigger, but at one point it was big enough until more students started attending OVU.

    Again, I don't have much time for things like this so I don't know a whole about them. I don know, however, that there is a Greek life and a lot of the students seem to be involved in it.

    At OVU, we have social clubs instead of the Greek system of sororities and fraternities. There are four social clubs Delta, Kappa, Sigma, and Theta. Every spring, we have a production called Expressions in which the social clubs put on an original skit and compete for the title of winner.
