    The dining is not bad here. We do not have places on campus like some of the bigger schools like Chick-fil-a or other major chain stores. We do however have to dining options on campus and while sometimes the food gets tiresome, it is never horrible food.

    The food is decent. Not particularly exciting, but decent. If you survived a high school cafeteria, you'll find it an improvement. They really try to make sure there's something for everyone, including those who can't or prefer not to have gluten.

    There is one cafeteria on campus and one area you can buy snacks food (ice cream, salads, burgers, pizza). There are not a lot of options, but the staff in the cafeteria works to tailor the students wants. It can be tiring to be eating in only one spot on campus, bu it is a good opportunity to go off campus and see what Dallas has to offer.

    Enough options for living a healthy-enough lifestyle. The food is fine and getting better. It just gets to the point where you have to start being creative if you get bored of eating the same thing.

    All college food, from what I know, tends to be... not the best. That said, what makes or breaks a cafeteria is the attitude of the workers and students. I expect the atmosphere would be very pleasant.

    Cafeteria food isn't that bad. We always have sandwiches, salad, cereal, waffles, and hamburgers available in addition to the regular hot meals that are served during breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Students have the option of choosing a 7 meal plan or an all access plan. Students can also choose to eat at the Rat which is located below the cafeteria. It serves tastier sandwiches and hamburgers with a larger variety of drinks and other snacks.

    The cafeteria is catered by Aramark, which has a generally very solid staff. Most of them are very nice people, and the food is very healthy. Salads and sandwiches always available, and the full grill is almost always available. Interesting desserts (too interesting, I would say sometimes), soy and dairy milk options, pretty much anything you would want out of a cafeteria. Vegetarian options are always available; vegan options are available upon request. You'll hear a lot of complaining about the state of the cafeteria, and complain a lot yourself, but I think that's the nature of college cafeterias. Downstairs is the Rathskellar (which we unfortunately have nicknamed The Rat, where high-quality grill and pizza options are available, as well as regular items for purchase. Generally you purchase the 7-meal plan or the all-access plan at the beginning of the semester, both of which come with a preloaded declining balance account with which to purchase food at the Rat. I'm on the 7-meal plan, which comes with much more money on that declining balance account so that you can eat one meal a day in the cafeteria, one in the Rat for 14 meals a week. I usually make breakfast in my dorm, so it works well for me and saves me over a a thousand bucks. If I have any advice for food and dining, it would be to buy cereal and milk and oatmeal and make your own breakfast in your room, then eat lunch and dinner at the two main dining options. Last thing-- the Capp Bar. Great, cheap coffee made at a full Italian press. Pastries and whatnot are available, and all your friends will be working there, if you aren't. It's a really fun student worker position if you're looking for one, as are the Business and Admissions offices.

    Food is fresh and there are a lot of healthy options. However, like all cafeteria food some options are questionable and there is always a little mystery in the meat.

    Armark. You'll come to know the word. There is a decent variety. Pretty good sandwich and salad bar, It really is not that bad. But it is the campus pastime to complain about the food.

Student Responses to Review Topic: Greek Life

    No Greek life. We took a vote on having a fraternity last year, and I think generally we decided that it would be awkward if half the guys at UD were in Greek life, and the other half weren't. I think the campus is just too small for it. But a lot of students are open to having it, so things could change.

    UD does not have any kind of Greek life offered and I do not miss it at all. Because of the size of the school you feel involved with everyone and do not need any Greek organizations.

    UD does not have any frats or sororities, but if you want authentic Greek life, you should definately do the Rome Sophomore program. There is a week spent in Greece, it's life changing.
