    The main dining hall is an all you can eat style that is okay most of the time. There are plenty of other options that you could choose from though which makes it a lot better. Between Mexican, subs, salads, pizza, pasta, or hamburgers, that are always offered, there is something for everyone. They are also food allergy and sensitivity conscious and have selections for those needs as well.

    Olivet utilizes a company named Sodexo for food on campus. There are plenty of options included in your "meal-swipes." Salad to go, subs to go, and main dining hall. Also a Mexican grill on campus. 3 different coffee shops and they serve Starbucks coffee and drinks.

    The food is okay, but I am satisfied with it. People do not like Sodexo for some reason. You can also find the Casa De Tigre, where they served taco bowls and burritos, Angus burgers, and more. Nesbitt serve smaller meals for the road. Red Room has a salad bar for you to create your own salad. We also have Starbucks for all you coffee people. If you don't like neither of them, most restaurants are in walking distances to just a few mile drive towards your favorite fast food joints. You have a lot of variety here, even if you do not like Sodexo.

    Our food comes from a meal service called sodexo. Its the same meal service our local hospitals have. It was pretty much hit or miss on whether or not you liked it. But there were multiple different choices to eat, deli, chinese, mexican pizza, salad bar, chicken sandwiches or hamburgers, and whatever the main meal was. I usually got something I liked overtime though.

    A lot of people complain bout the food, but in all reality, it is really not that bad. It is actually pretty descent food.

    Ludwig isn't the best especially on the weekends when everyone goes home. Your best bet is the deli line or stir fry line. Red room isn't too bad either.

    Olivet does not have any fraternities or sororities. Although there are many groups and clubs that people can join.
