    The dining hall is getting better, but it still isn't the best. However, there are lots of other great places to eat on campus as well as many great places to eat out in Fremont and Queen Anne, both which are just a short walk/bus ride from campuss

    There are plenty of places to grab a bite, there is a subway on campus, a cafeteria, and a main dining area. The school is also located near surrounding restaurants in the Fremont area.

    Gwinn Commons is an incredible dinning hall. Having tasted others, I can definitely appreciate all the options our dinning hall offers. On any given night you can get a wide variety of types of food from Chinese to classic American, or if you don't see what you like the salad/cereal bar never fails to satisfy.

    The food service here is great with a very up to date dining hall (Quinn Commons). There is also an on campus coffee shop, Subway, and convenience store.

    The dining hall is convenient. The chiefs really try to accomodate for special dietary needs. They have gluten-free and vegetarian options for every meal. They also have typical dishes that you can count on being served every meal. They also got a brand new espresso machine this year! Also, there are many other eateries on campus that take points that come with each meal plan.

    The food at Gwinn (the on-campus dining) isn't the best, but there is a Subway on campus as well as an Einstein Bros Bagels. There are also lots of coffee shops on campus and the food in Seattle is AMAZING. From some of the best coffee in America to delicious thai food and sushi (Phoket is amazing), you'll never be short of good food!

    There is no greek at SPU. The floors on each hall mimic the awesome parts of greek life such as sister hood/ brother hood, initiations, formals, roomies dates, etc without the hazing, rushing, or emotional/social standards one feels they need to live up to in order to be selected.
