Student Responses to Review Topic: Food And Dining

    I lived in CIW, so naturally I ate at the CIW dining hall most, but in my opinion, their food was not very good. Overall, the food at Binghamton is not that good. I usually found myself eating the same two things for the whole semester because there was a lot of things I just couldn't stomach. The Marketplace has somewhat better food, depending on what you like, but if you're from NYC like me and homesick for some good pizza, the pizza at the Marketplace isn't that great, and neither is CIW pizza. The closest thing to NY pizza is at Hinman (they have a brick oven), although it is still not good food.

    The food is mediocre at best. I would've given it 3 stars but its so repetitive and the workers are super slow. I wish there were more cafes on campus.

    Sodexo is the company that provides the food at our dining halls. It's not exactly the best food, but it's still edible. The company has upgraded its food quality since the last year (at least for Hinman). I find that the quality is a little different at each dining hall. Personally, I like the C4 dining hall the best; more choices and overall quality is the best. Appalachian Dining Hall doesn't have the best food, but it has the best view on campus! If you're willing to compromise food quality, you definitely want to eat there often during the Fall. You get a great picture of the campus and a fantastic feel for Autumn with the different leave colors.

    Sodexo isn't amazing, but they don't suck either, and they are very willing and able to accommodate different diets. They could do better in the health food department, but overall, the food isn't bad.

    The dining halls are okay. There are a lot of options (and a lot of dining halls) to choose from. A brand new food court just opened and it blows everything else away. Fantastic.

    The school offers flexible food plans that operate outside the standard dining hall. There are restaurants, bagel places, coffee shops, and more. There is also a Kosher Kitchen and arrangements can be made for other kinds of dietary restrictions such as medical or religious (i.e. Halal). Sodexo runs the services and do an excellent job. Check out some of the on campus restaurants for a change from dining hall choices.

    The food is not the best, but there are many options in each dining hall including salad bars, vegan options, international foods, grilled foods, and many other options.

    Our school is 11% Greek. If you're interested in it, it's there, but if not you won't notice it much. By no means are we Greek or geek.

    Greek life is pretty prevalent, but you can learn to have fun without being Greek. Just join organizations and clubs to meet friends.

    It's a hit or miss. If you want to join greek life, be prepared for some gruesome pledging. A lot of people upon surviving the process say it's an experience that everyone should go through, but who knows. There are a handful of frats/sororities that throw awesome parties, a majority that only hang out with each other and don't do much else, and then the professional frats. Check it out and be open to the idea, but be careful.

    Greek Life is HUGE on campus. There's a host of both social and pre-professional fraternities and sororities including many cultural/ethnic greek organizations. Greek life play a key role in characterizing the BU social atmosphere.
