    The cafeteria food is eatable but if you aren't in the mood for what they are serving there is a cafe called Jonzzie's that serves a variety of sandwiches and salads. It's pretty darn good!

    The food in the dining hall is prepared by some of the most caring people on campus who work so hard to make sure that students eat good food. There is also a cafe called Jonzzey's that serves anything from soup to paninis to milkshakes. Good food at a good price.

    Our food is satisfactory. I wish we had more healthy choices, more fruit available. Maybe a lot less fried things and a lot more grilled things. I wish there were more options for people on strict diets like the vegans and vegetarians.

    The food at the dining hall isn't all that great unfortunately. They have their moments, but the food isn't the best quality and it doesn't seem as if we have much variety in the menu.

    The Dining Hall isn't bad, it's just not really good either...

    The cafeteria is well-stocked, and they always have a wide variety of food options. And if nothing that is set out appeals to you, there is always a salad bar, sandwich bar, and an open grill with eggs and bread, not to mention toasters and cereal constantly available.

    I personally don't like eating cafeteria style, but for who likes it, the price is reasonable and the location is close to everything on campus. The food is what you would expect in a cafeteria, and sometimes the workers even go above and beyond to provide something special.

    The Cafeteria is your basic cafeteria. It isn't bad, but you will want a kitchen when you are an upper classman.

    This school has a strong emphasis on Greek culture. Most every class I have taken so far has made reference to classical tradition.

    We actually don't have sororities or fraternities at Southern Virginia University, and we don't really miss it, either! There are tons of other clubs you can join.
