  • Aug-05-2015 I am researching this school and have visited the campus

    The cafeteria food is okay. It's kind of overpriced but if you use a meal plan and occasionally make your own meals it actually isn't too bad. The Pi shop is where I ate most of the time and they have pretty good pizza and smoothies if that is more your thing. I never got a chance to try the cakes or pastries but they all looked really good. There are a lot of really good restaurants around Pratt that will actually use money from your meal plan. Of course there's always the Starbucks in Steuben where most classes are.

    The food outside of campus is expensive (no surprise; New York City). The food in the cafeteria is pretty decent and from what I can tell it won't kill you.

    There is a wide selection of food for almost every type of eater (vegetarian, Vegan, gluten-free, lactose-intolerant... etc.) If you aren't a very picky eater, you will find something you like every day. I have had no complaints about the food so far, but have heard quite a few complain (which is inevitable). There is a main cafeteria and a Pi Shop that serves pizza, pasta, sandwiches and rice bowls which are new this year and really good. As well as the meal plan, there are dozens of places just outside campus that aren't too pricey. A good New York slice of pizza is always an option.

    Cafeteria food is horrible but the food around campus and New York it great.

    While the grocery store on campus can get a bit expensive (it's New York, what do you expect) and some of the food in the cafeteria comes a little under or over cooked, there is a wide selection for breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert, snacking, and drinking, one could go days before they've tried everything. They even have choices for vegans and vegetarians and if you aren't in the mood for campus food there are plenty of restaurants right off campus.

    While the cafeteria is exciting at first, you'll eventually grow a little bored of it, especially dealing with the restricting aspect of a meal plan. This being said, they do offer a lot of different options and the area in general has some awesome dining options as well. If you're not super into the cafeteria thing, there is also a convenience store where you can spend your meal plan on food to cook in your dorm. The environment around campus, especially in the pie shop and cafeteria isn't one to miss though as you'll be sure to meet a lot of fellow students around and eventually end up seeing at least a friend or two every time you go to grab a slice or cup of coffee.

    Pratt's dining halls are much better than some schools. There are two main cafeteria's on the main campus, as well as one in the Architecture building, a cafe in the studios, and a small convenience store in the Upperclassmen dorms. Rather than paying for a buffet style meal, Pratt's system is a pay per item type of deal. If I wanted to buy an apple, a drink, and some chips, I would have to pay for each instead of a base fee for everything. The food isn't too bad, and they provide a ton of variety, like salad, noodles, and sandwiches. One of the cafeterias even makes crepes which are pretty fantastic. The only complaint I would have about the food is the prices. It really isn't too bad if you're paying with your meal plan, but if you're not careful things really start to add up.

    The food is not awful, nor is it impressive. The meal plan can be used at the main cafeteria, the pie shop, one of the on campus Starbucks (never really tastes like the real deal Starbucks though, I must warn you), and the C-store. The cafeteria offers a wonderful salad bar and many vegetarian options. Each day offers a different lunch and dinner option like Chinese food, salmon and rice, or burritos. The pie shop has pizza and crepes available at later hours than the cafeteria (until 11). It also offers the pseudo-starbucks drinks I previously referenced. The C-store is a very useful small convenience store located in one of the upperclassmen dorms. Along with a large assortment of snacks one can buy notebooks and even disposable cameras.

    My best part about Pratt is the food. Although the area is a bit expensive, the food is top notch. Surrounded by Luigi's (best pizza in NY in my opinion) and many other restaurants in cafe, not to mention with accessible transportation to Manhattan for even more food and dining experiences.

    Pretty minimal and not by any means required, but those who join love it and you build a great community because of the Greek system.

    There are two sororities and two fraternities. Both are very inviting and nothing like the typical greek life in bigger state schools. If you are interested this is a great way of making friends and getting involved in Greek events.

    Though I'm not actually a part of the Greek life, friends who are a part of it love it. The bigs are incredibly nice to the littles; my friends big even gave her little a boquet of flowers a couple weeks after they met. The fraternities throw parties to help support finding the cure to things like cancer and autism. Once they even threw a gender party. The frats and sororities are a close knit bunch that love to help out their community and people in need.

    I personally am not part of any Greek Life on campus, but there are two sororities, and two fraternities. There is no official dorm for the sororities, but I've met several girls who participate and they're all pretty nice. It could be a fun thing to get involved in.

    Greek life is small on this campus with only 2 sororities and 2 fraternities. However it is a very tight knit community without the usual stereotypes. Everyone is very friendly and very involved in all aspects of campus life from R.A.s to people working on campus and always have an ear to listen.
