  • Depends on the dorm that you are in, some dorms are stricter than others, and the heat and water goes out a lot, but usually comes back right away. …

Student Responses to Review Topic: Food And Dining

  • I am a current student here

    Other than the soup and salad bar, there were not very healthy options that often. They have pizza every night and burgers once a week. They also have pasta every day. The cafeteria did not have good accessibility at all times of the day and I had to go grocery shopping in order to eat according to my own schedule which was disappointing because I was paying a lot for a meal plan. There was also not enough space for everyone to sit. This fall they are supposed to have better hours and they are renovating the cafeteria so hopefully that will help, but we will see. There are a lot of places to get coffee and snacks on campus as well as grab and go lunches but heir hours are weird.

    I have also ate in the cafeteria over 3 times. The food was delicious and the atmosphere in the KC is amazing. It is being renovated right now so it will be even better by fall!

    The college may not have the best food according to the students, but it does provide the students with its healthiest food sources.

    For campus food, the food is usually pretty good. There is also lots of places that are open through out the day, such as the coffee carts, and the cafe's in the library and by the bookstore.

    The Greek Life in Olivet College is full of history. It is the home of the first sorority in the whole Continental U.S.

    The Greek sororities and fraternities are huge on campus, and some people are very divided into their certain Greek clicks.
