    The food is quite good. There are always options for people with picky tastebuds, and if you have a dietary restriction just tell the chefs, and they will make you something you can eat.

    Food choice is good and not as repetitive as other schools. Gets tiresome after an extended period of time of course

    There are not many options for breakfast, which upsets me because it is the most important meal of the day. As for lunch, they usually do a good job of having multiple options, however, the options are repetitive, and the same goes for dinner. As for desserts, they rarely have anything chocolate, and they don't serve ice cream, only frozen yogurt.

    The food in Commons can be a hit or a miss. When it's good, then it is really good. If it's bad then you just walk over to the pizza and pasta. Dessert here is the best. And Cavern is always a reliable source for a quick sandwich or wrap.

    Greek life (while only approx. 30% of the campus is involved) has a HUGE presence on campus. Don't let the statistic fool you, that 30% is a lot.
