    The food is great! Bon Appetite is the company that makes our food. They serve breakfast lunch and dinner for a reasonable amount of time, and if you miss any of those meals you can go over to McCain and get something there (It's like a restaurant/grocery store). They go the extra mile to make sure everything we eat is natural as well as tasty. In the caf. you have several options: A salad bar, pizza bar, grill, main meal, deli, oriental, and desert bar. They cater to everyone's taste.

    The Bon Appetit company that provides the cafeteria food is very helpful in having dietary preferences/allergies as gluten-free. When it comes to college location, there are really no great college restaurants though except for a few fast food joints really.

    Great food, but a very crowded cafeteria. Plan to get there before or after the rush or before or after the teams come in. Nothing worse than getting stuck behind the soccer or football players.

    At first the food seems really nice but it does get old quickly so be prepared.

    The food isn't the best. When touring the campus one would think we students are lucky to have a buffet and so many options. Living on campus though is completely different. The people that make the food can't seem to make anything old fashioned and add a bunch of unnecessary ingredients like they think they are French chefs or something.

    We have two places to eat, McCain and the Caf (aka Simplot). Both have really good food and are at a reasonable price. McCain uses coyotecash which is where you pay per item while The Caf uses a meal to get in and then it is all you can eat. As long as you don't try to get into the caf at about 12:30 it is pretty quick to get in and out, but 12:30 is the lunch rush, just like 9:10 is the breakfast rush.

    Best food at any college I've been to, ever. They even have gluten free and it is gourmet!

    A large all-you-can-eat banquet area with a cosy atmosphere is perfect for students who are nervous about being away from home.

    Nothing about food and dining on their profile page. I think it said there was a cafeteria though.

    There's not much of a greek life here unless you look for it.

    I am not a part of Greek life, so all I know is hazing is not allowed, but there are secret initiation activities of some kind.

    Greek life is always fun although I did not RUSH, many of the people i befriended at the college were in sororities or fraternities. The activities during greek week are fun, and are open to all during RUSH week.

    Everyone involved in Greek life are quite close with not only others in Greek life, but with most everyone on campus. The stereotype of fraternities and sororities is surely not true on this campus.

    The Greek life at the college is nothing to write home about. There are only three fraternities, and two sororities. However, everyone involved in Greek life seems to be very close to one another, and they each bring unique facets to the college environment.
