    As a freshman you have to buy the full meal plan. But, unfortunately the food isn't always up to par. Quite often we choose to each off campus due to the food being served.

    the food is very diverse, and the workers inside the cafeteria are friendly. the workers are of various ethnicities which allow for proper communication with those who don't necessarily speak english.

  • I am researching this school and have visited the campus

    I only ate at the cafeteria once, and while there were a lot of options, none were better than edible.

    The caf (dining hall) here has good days and bad days; there are always multiple choices, so you can always find an option. The food is bland sometimes though, but stocking food in your dorm is always a great option. There are lots of great places close to the school to get food, and Chickfila has a deal on Thursdays specifically for students that a lot of people partake in.

    They selection is not usually satisfactory, nor is the quality. I do appreciate that it is all you care to eat, but not the looks you get from the staff when you take advantage of that. The price is reasonable for lunch.

    Shorter University does have Greek life it's a little different from Greek life on a public university because Shorter's Greek life holds onto the campuses Christian values.

    Fun and an easy way to get involved. Being a christian college, sorority and fraternity options are safe and exciting.

    There are few selections and most of their time is spent gossiping about the other fraternities and sororities.
