Reviews Dorm Life

  • The campus is VERY social. Everyone is willing to meet everyone. I recommend Daniels Hall your freshman year, especially if you don't know anyone. It is the most social dorm…

  • The dorms could use some updating but I have had some of the best memories with the girls that I met there and I would do it all over again.…

    The dining halls have pretty decent food and a wide variety of choices. There are also many places around and on campus to get food.

    This campus offers a lot of variety when it comes to food. They have 2 food courts (think buffet-style) and they have small fast food places. Some examples are, Starbucks, Subway, Chick-Fil-A, Burger King, Taco Bell and more. These small businesses are all in the middle of campus, near the Recreation Center.

    The food is good on and off campus. In the dining halls there is always something good. Especially on chicken tender tuesdays and steak Thursdays.

    One dining hall is actually connected to a dorm, so that's a plus. The food is really good! And the meal plans are very nice!

    There's three awesome food courts with lots of variety, hopefully you're not a picky eater or you will get sick of the food. Just try everything, it can't hurt and it'll prolong your appetite for the food courts.

    The food in the dining halls is average. It is certainly better than high school cafeteria food, but is not worth buying for more than one year. The unlimited meal plan is a good choice for freshman, especially since the other plan they offer you is only slightly cheaper and gives you a lot less. You get unlimited food once you are in the dining hall, which is nice. The two big dining halls have ice cream machines. MarketPointe is the best dining hall on campus and generally everything is better there, although it is further away from most things. There are a few other on-campus food options besides the dining halls. Tangeman University Center has a floor with a food court with restaurants including Chick-fil-a, Burger King, Papa Johns, and Taco Bell. There is also a lot of restaurants right off campus on Calhoun Street.

    There are three food courts that take your meal swipes. One is conveniently located by the dorms and is even connected to one. This one has really good lunch specials that include the famous Tender Tuesday. The second is open all the time and has a large variety. The last is in the middle of campus and is open for lunch and dinner, it is famous for its hamburgers and hot dogs. Also, there are many places on campus that take the Bearcat card from Subway to Taco Bell.

    Let's face it.. no matter how good the food was during the first week, eating at the same place 7 days a week 3 times a day gets old eventually. The food overall is pretty great, though. Milkshake Mondays save my life.

    UC has three dining halls, multiple fast food places on campus and more places that you can count right off campus. Freshmen are required to have a meal plan. The meal plans include the unlimited option or a certain amount of meals per week. The bearcat card or student ID can have money added for on campus options or off campus dining. So if you enjoy unlimited desserts and pizza, UC is a good option.

    I didn't think I was cut out for Greek Life at first and I heard so many vicious rumors about Greek Life. But, now that I am in it, going Greek was one of the best decisions I ever made! I met so many cool people and now I always have something to do. The people are so nice and it's something more people should consider. However, I also have a lot of friends who are not Greek. Greek Life is there if you want to go after it, and Cincinnati has some pretty well-known fraternities and sororities, but you can also just as easily ignore everything having to do with it.

    I was on the Women's Soccer team at UC and was involved with the athletic department so I do not know a lot about the greek life, but it is definitely growing and I have heard nothing but great things from my friends who have been apart of it.

    There are several different faternity and sorority organizations on campus for a student to choose from. The student can choose one to where he or she fits great.
