  • Housing at St. Cloud State is way overpriced. I stayed in Stateview and paid a lot of money for it. I was looking forward to meeting new people, but people…

    The food is horrible. Chick Fil A isn't that great and the actual campus food is gross. The only thing worth getting is their curly fries and salad bar.

    Garvey is a great option for if you're right there on campus. There's also some excellent choices inside the Atwood Center. Either way, all the employees work hard to provide great food and service.

    The food and dining takes place in Gravy in St.Cloud. From my experience, the food and dinning go a lot since a year ago. But the food and dining still has it's ups and downs.

    Garvey Commons Food is not the best ever but it is not the worst. It can be really good sometimes but in other occasions the food would sit there for too long. Also, they do not have a lot of options for vegans and do not have many gluten free options. There is also the underground in Atwood, that has new restaurants such as chick fill a, Denny's and much more.

    The food service is run by Sodexo and was very disappointing. When you go into Garvey Commons, it looks like you're going to be well-fed because the food looks so good. In reality, the food is mediocre and often acted as a laxative for me.

    The dining halls are always kept clean and that's great because no one wants to eat somewhere dirty and there are always multiple dishes to choose from at every meal. The only problem is that sometimes the selection from day to day can be limited and sometimes having pizza everyday can get a little old and unhealthy. Other than the dining hall there are also places like Subway and WOW! on campus as well that provide a great alternative to eating pizza and spaghetti for every meal.

  • I am accepted here and planning to attend soon

    SCSU seems to have a pretty good variety both on campus and within a short distance of campus. It's located within city limits only a few blocks from the downtown area which supports a varied dining and entertainment scene, which has both positive and negative aspects.

Student Responses to Review Topic: Greek Life

    The Greek Life on campus is not a huge ordeal, but you do see them. The majority of the time that I will see them is when they are trying to raise money for their houses and charities. Once one of the guys' house was doing an all night camp out on the campus. They were playing music during the day, and playing games at night to stay awake. It was a pretty interesting sight to see in the middle of the night. Also many of the times that you will see any of the Greeks on campus, doing something other than going to class, is them selling hot dogs. This is a pretty popular thing for them to do to raise money since they are cheap and everyone on campus will be hungry at some point.

    I hear the greek life is really fun. Some of them are even really nice, and aren't like what you see in the movies.

    Greek life is pretty popular on campus. The Fraternities have houses on campus that they hosts events at. Members from the frats promote students to join quite frequently as well.
