    The food is terrible, it is constantly making me sick and I'm a vegetarian so there are very few good options for me. Also the choices for breakfast are poor, its gets very old cause they never change it up.

    As a vegetarian and a preferred organic eater, any college would have its challenges trying to satisfy my dining preferences. I have to admit Plymouth has a simple vegetarian section and a simple gluten free section in which I indulge!

    The dining isn't bad, but at other colleges I have visited, the dining has been better (UNH, Kenne). I still enjoy the dining, even if you don't think you will use more than 15 swipes, it is worth to get the larger package, far less stressful for an extra 100 dollars.

    Again, typical college fare. The dining hall has some weird hours, but the Union Grille is pretty good and I love the coffee in the Sidewalk Cafe. There seem to be emphasis on healthy eating, choices, and nutrition among the food service staff and in the dining areas, which is really great of Sodexo to provide.

    Sodexo does it's best, but once you've eaten it for two years straight you're definitely glad to start cooking for yourself again.

    While I'm not involved in Greek life, there is a prominence of it on campus, but it's not expected or necessary for students to be involved in it to fit in.

    Although you hear about many underground greek organizations, there are only three recognized sororities on campus. Tau Omega, Kappa Delta Phi NAS, and Delta Zeta. Though Greek Life is small, they make a huge impact on the campus. I am proud to be Greek!

    Greek life to me is a little lame for my liking but that is because it is not for everyone. If you like it, go for it!

    Greek life isn't that big at the school but we do have it. It is a great way to get involved and meet new people.
