    The food is alright. This is usually the biggest complaint people have when it comes to living here. There aren't a ton of options when it comes to food, especially when it comes to healthier options.

    The cafeteria is decent everyday cafeteria food, but if you want something better you should try the Cafe in Student Union. They offer a lot more food choices that are much more delicious.

    Food is not the best. It isnt buffet style, more like every thing is separate and you pay for what you can afford. The best things are the quesadillas but even that gets boring after a while. The salad bar is also nice.

    I would have to say the food is my least favorite part of living at RIC. The food is mostly unhealthy, and served in extremely large portions. The meal plan does give me more than enough money for food each day, which is good. There are a lot of choices, but not any healthy ones. The salad bar is hardly fresh, and doesn't have much variety.

    The food is not to bad. The quality of the food could go up. I also wish there were more options.

    The Donovan Dining Center has a variety of food. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are provided between the same hours everyday. It gets tiring if you eat the same thing everyday but there is a lot to chose from. The best dinner has to be the Holiday Buffet, the whole dining center is full of food, deserts and drinks while listening to Christmas music. The food is very enjoyable.

    Many people complain about the dining hall on campus. Improvements have seemed to be made recently. It seems as though they have a new initiative of adding a variety of foods to accommodate all types of nutritional preferences. Not the best, but is improving.

    My mom went to the parents' orientation dinner, and they told her the food was the same the kids would be eating everyday. She said it was very good and there are healthy and not so healthy choices.

Student Responses to Review Topic: Greek Life

    I am personally a part of the Greek Life ,and I love it so much! There are only three sororities and two fraternities, so the small community makes it easy to get to know everyone. The Greek Life works really hard at making sure we all connect with each other, and to non Greeks on campus. Also, community service, and philanthropies are our number one goal. Hazing is absolutely not tolerated at Rhode Island College. Before anyone can join there are mandatory classes, and actives they must participate in that educate on the dangers of hazing, and drinking. I hope to see the Greek Community grow throughout the years.

    Not much of a big Greek life, there are not sororities or frat houses. If you been dreaming about joining one for years, the ones here will be a huge disappointments.

    I'm a second degree student and part of a greek organization at another university so I can't speak much to the greek life at RIC. I see their recruitment flyers and activities being advertised all the time though.
