    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 cafeteria on campus always has many options to choose. From pizza and hamburgers, to a full salad bar and vegetarian meals, or even home cooked meals that Mom would make. And lets not forget the huge desert bar, (You'll gain your freshman 15 quick there).

    I don't know how every review here has rated the food as amazing; those people don't have taste buds... SAGA (the dining hall here) is usually pretty awful. Sure, there are options. But you grow tired of having to resort to mediocre pizza, goopy soups, and cereal many times. SAGA is like the little fat kid on the diving board attempting a double backflip with a twist; IT'S OVER ITS HEAD!!! It won't stick to classic cafeteria food that it could do well, like hamburgers or chicken nuggets. Instead, one night it might offer chicken with cilantro cream sauce, fried broccoli with Asian Sauce, and citrus herb pollock (all real menu items, I swear). It's so frustrating leaving SAGA hungry because there wasn't anything good to eat. You savor quantity over quality, then SAGA's for you. However, if you have taste buds, it's often disappointing. On a good note, usually the Mexican food is OK, and when they actually do make hamburgers or something similar it's decent. Moe's and Chick-Fil-A are nice additions to when SAGA fails to deliver. This is where the majority of my money's spent (see above paragraph as to why...). They often have weird hours, though. On Sundays, Chick-Fil-A's closed, and Moe's doesn't open until 6PM. Maybe one day they'll fix it, I don't know.

    Saga, the school cafeteria, is okay. I've eaten at other school's cafeterias where the food is really bad and some where the food is really good, and that's what I'm using to compare it. It's usually on the bad side, though. I've had worse, but Saga certainly isn't very good. However, it is balanced out by the on-campus restaurants. There is a taco/burrito/Mexican food place on campus called Moe's that is excellent, a Chick-Fil-A, a place called The Deli, and a Freshen's smoothie place,and a Subway at Cityplex, all at which you can use sodexo bucks (part of your meal plan). If you don't think you'll eat at saga a lot, then definitely get the meal plan with 7 meals and $500 sodexo bucks. That's what I have. I hardly ever eat at saga. I usually eat food in my room quite a bit and the on-campus restaurants. We are halfway through the semester and I still have a lot of sodexo bucks leftover.

Student Responses to Review Topic: Greek Life
  • 0
  • Shelby from Harrison, AR
  • I am a current student here

    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.

    No Greek life. The floor you live with is kind of like Greek Life. Every floor has a different name. Every girl's floor has a boy's floor and they are called, Brother/Sister Wings.

    I do not know, but the study of Greek is pertinent to the Bible, there are resources as well as Bibles you can purchase to study definitions in the Greek.
