    Food has it's ups and downs but is never inedible. The bistro food is typically better than the cafeteria (which is buffet style).

    The food is not five star restaurant meals. However, it is pretty good. It is better than most high school cafeterias, and better than many of the other college campuses I visited while in search for a school. I enjoy the food prepared by the nice cooks in the kitchen. They are really friendly and are willing to make foods that are specific for dietary needs. There is a kitchen in every dorm, so if you really don't like the food, you can make some yourself in the kitchen in the basement.

    The food services offered on campus are from AVI. Every student, no matter living in dorm, apartment, or townhouse, is required to have a meal package. Each meal package costs the same. You can either get 16 swipes into the cafeteria a week and no bistro points, 14 swipes and $150 bistro points, 11 swipes and $300 bistro points, or 7 swipes and $450 bistro points. The swipes admit you to the cafeteria which every day has a salad bar, sandwich station, two types of soup, cereal and milk, pizza, pasta, dessert bar with soft serve, and an entree station that changes daily. There are also soda fountains, and fresh fruit seasonally. The food isn't terrible, but they serve the same seven things over and over again. They claim to be vegetarian friendly but their vegetarian options are lacking in nutrition. The bistro is overpriced and very unhealthy but delicious and great when you are in a hurry and cannot waste time swiping into the cafeteria. The bistro points can also be used in the vending machines in the academic center, where almost all classes are located.

    The food and dining is amazing at Thiel. Every student has an option for what meal plan they would like to have for each semester. My personal opinion for the meal plans was to pick the fourteen meals a week with some money for the upstairs barista. The food is amazing and the school puts out signs for allergy alerts. I have a nut allergy, so it makes it easier for me to know what has nuts in the which foods.

    At Thiel there are two options for dining; the cafeteria and the Bistro. Thiel makes meal plans easy and it is very convenient for students to get to lunch or dinner even with a tight schedule.

    Thiel College's cafe doesn't have good food everyday. If one thing is nasty were always welcomed to throw it away and get something else.

    There is the option for students to go to the cafeteria or the bistro. IN the cafeteria, there are many options and there are vegan/vegertarian options. There are always soups, salad, sandwiches, pizza. For the bistro, there's a huge/wide variety on the menu.

    Four different fraternities and four different sororities, all offering different things that would interest different people. There is a zero-tolerance policy on hazing and semester dues are not as high as many other colleges.

    There are 4 sororities and 4 fraternities on campus. They are extremely nice, totally against hazing, and do a lot with community service and their philanthropy. There are many students involved in Greek life, however, they are friends with everyone else on campus. People from every Greek organization are friends with people from the others. They are not cliquey, and they are not the stereotypical party Greek groups.

    Greek Life dominates Thiels campus. A good majority of Student Government positions are held by members of Greek Life, and many other leadership positions in almost all clubs are held by greek members. Thiels greek life is very active, holding a formal recruitment in the fall and informal in the spring. Each womens group has 45 girls, and the mens groups vary. They do a lot for philanthropy, with Kappa Sigmas annual 72 hour see saw over homecoming weekend (Don't miss it!) to Chi Omega's Jail A Thon in the spring. There are four national sororities and three national fraternities and one local fraternity on campus. Joining Greek Life at Thiel is a great decision.

    Greek Life is relatively small at Thiel with four sororities and four fraternities. However, this can be a very positive quality of Greek Life because it allows us all to band together rather than form rivalries.

    Greek Life is so much fun! There are four sororities and four fraternities on campus. The Greeks play a major role on campus because there are so many of us! There are two recruitment opportunities each year.

    Greek life here is very important. After your first year here, you will be moved into a Fraternity or Sorority house. Being in one of them gives you instant friends, and your brothers or sisters will share much insight to things you may have never learned about.
