Student Responses to Review Topic: Food And Dining

  • I am a current student here

    Food in the cafeteria is decent. Not exactly the best, plus sometimes the plates and utensils and cups are not clean all the time so that can be an issue. If you want places outside the cafeteria they're amazing. Plus they are good places for studying as well. Therefore, I recommend going off campus and using Eagle bucks or find shops on campus you can go to.

    There are many options for food at ORU. Our cafeteria is catered by Sodexo, so we are offered two different entrees, a fast food bar, salad bar, sandwich bar, bakery and special dietary bar for most meals. We also have a Chickfila, Moes’ Southwest Grill, Hava Java(coffee and pastries), Jazzman’s(coffee and pastries) and two Freshens Smoothies on campus that are a part of different meal plans. Our cafeteria also does late-night dining on week days.

    Food changes almost every week and the dining arrangement is clearly very organized to make sure students can sit in large or small groups.

    The food is pretty good but most of the time it is the same and I get tired of eating the same food.

    There are several options for food on campus. Our main food source is our cafeteria, which is known as Saga. We have a Chick-Fil-A, Moe's, Hava Java, Jazzman's, Freshens, and a few other food/drink places on campus. You won't be too disappointed here when it comes to food. Sometimes saga isn't the best, but most of the time they are.

    I like having free food at saga at all times; the quality varies day to day. The only restaurants on campus are Chik fil A and Moe's and that gets very old.

    It is said that the cafeteria food is absolutely terrible although I'm certain that people just exaggerate too much. It has its good and bad days, but it's mostly just tasteless. However, it's not that bad. The other dining areas on-campus are fine.

    The only Greek life is each floor on a dorm room because ORU does not have fraternities or sororities.

    There is no Greek like due to the fact that we are a private Christian college. Although, every wing (floor in the dorms) is given a floor name and they all have a brother and/or sister wing. This is the closest thing to Greek life at ORU.

    The fraternity/sorority lifestyle is reserved for the Claudius and EMR dorms. Though it is not at the level of a public university.
