    The food at Saint Anselm is really good. The chefs make it themselves rather than having a company do it. You can have stuff be made for you at The Grill like omelets or grilled cheese. There's a deli and salad bar as well. Then there two lines for the main meal (Chef's Choice and Entree). Every other Thursday is crepe night. The school also has an annual (free) Christmas feast which is DELICIOUS (I recommend getting there an hour or two after it starts rather than an hour or two early.....they don't run out of food). The food is really good, especially things like their panini and apple glazed chicken. However, it can get old. Especially if you don't like what they are serving and the only other options you'd have would be salad, deli, pasta, or grilled chicken. Also, the food is TERRIBLE at to-go options. My sister's college has a bunch of to go items that you'd find at, say, a convenience store and you can heat them up later. Davison has next to none. So pretty much if you're hungry you'll either have to come to Dav or buy to go items from an off-campus grocery store, which you won't want to do since you automatically have to have like a $4,000 meal plan if you live in a dorm and you'll want to spend that money. Oh, but Saint Anselm does also have a coffee shop (again, no to go items). They have unhealthy food but it's delicious. The calzones are amazing. There's also a pub in the coffee shop. Once you're 21 you can get your own personalized mug in the coffee shop. It's pretty cool.

    We have the best food around! Davison provides a lot of different options like crepes, action pasta, chicken parm, mac and cheese bar, and those are just a few! There is also the Christmas Feast that Davison puts on before finals. The coffee shop is also great for after Davison closes.

    One word: amazing. It wasn't voted in the Princeton Review as one of the best in the country for no reason. Between the dining hall and the cafe/pub, there is a lot of options for delicious food on campus.

    The food at Saint Anselm College is amazing! Their pies, you can't just bring one home. They are so good that you should take home as many as you can for thanksgiving break.

    The food is very good and very fresh. It does repeat but the most of the time they are classic faves like Mac and cheese bar. Expect to spend 10-15 bucks on most meals. Way overpriced. Oh and don't forget to weigh your cream cheese in a separate container, as they get angry if you don't. And you'll think twice about wasting a meatball that cost you 2 bucks. Have mom send you some easy mac to counteract the cost.

    There are no REAL sororities or fraternities at Saint A's, but there are fake/unofficial ones (societies). There are none recognized by the school and there is no greek housing.

    No Greek life is affiliated with the school. All Greek life is self-maintained. Very exclusive not really a big part of campus life.

    Pretty much nonexistent, though I've heard there is maybe one or two unofficial ones out there off campus.

    Yeah, no. There are some wannabe frats and sororities that like to pretend they are the but they are not actually recognized by the college or the student body for that manner.

    it doesn't exist at saint a's which i personally like. we have some service organizations but they are different from frats. frats create problems with hazing, vandalism, and out of control parties. they are unnecessary.
