    The meal plan is cheaper than it is at a lot of schools, but it is not always the best. It is good for college food.

    College food is college food, Taylor's isn't the best I've had but it definitely isn't on the lower end. I would say it beats most but could be better.

    A lot of people complain about the dining experience at the DC (dining commons), but honestly it's not that bad. There is a huge variety of combinations at every meal. Don't be afraid to try new things. Also, don't rush through your meals. It's understandable if your cramming a meal in between classes, but if you have time to enjoy a meal, enjoy it. A lot of bonding with dormmates and classmates happen at meals, and you don't want to miss out on that.

    It's decent food, and good daily variety, but over time, there isn't much variety.

    The dining commons is a buffet and there's always different things to eat. The food is great, much better than what you would think at a school, but towards the end of the year it does start to get a little boring and you miss home cooked food.

    The DC (Dining Commons) could be better, but it's not the worst. It's buffet style and you can pick anything you want to eat. Pasta, salad, burgers, sandwiches, etc.

    There is a large variety of food in the Dining Commons. Some people do complain that the food is not as high of quality as they would like, but I rarely have trouble finding something good to eat. There is everything from a personal pasta bar to a corner grill to a health food section to a home-style food line and there is always a fruit and salad line open.

    we have no greek life, but it is unnecessary because of the connections you can make with peers, professors, and other influential staff members.

    There technically are not set sororities or fraternities on campus but there is a special bond that grows between those in their select Dorm Wings. At meals, the unspoken seating is with one's Wing, surrounded by their Dorm but mingling is always encouraged (except with tables filled with surly/uncouth Freshman still in High school sophomoric mode).

    No Greek life, per se; the closest we have to a frat is the third floor of Samuel Morris Hall, playfully called the Brotherhood (BroHo).
