Student Responses to Review Topic: Food And Dining

    The food is decent. At moody towers, there is usually the same food being served. It can be improved, however, it is not awful.

    I liked the food. I don't like how expensive it is. When staying on-campus, they require you purchase a meal plan (I assume to insure you're not starving to death while being in their care). I can understand why they'd want to make sure all their students are properly fed but the meal plans are insanely expensive and may not all be used, especially if end up doing most of your shopping off campus anyway. For a commuter student, the large variety of fast-foods available is both a blessing and curse (mostly a curse if you're trying to maintain a certain weight). But again, aside from how expensive it can be, for the most part, I enjoyed the food. If there was something I didn't like, the stores around campus always had alternatives.

    They have good and bad days (mostly bad days). They just got new management so the food is better than what it was last year, but it still has poor taste. They always over season their food or never have enough. They rarely ever get it right.

    Two campus buffets and a variety of fast food restaurants in the area. Also, the surrounding neighborhood has some dining options.

    The dining halls recently were taken over by new management and the change is massive. Serving not just to ordinary students but also to ones with special dietary needs, the dining halls give out food that is either healthy or delicious, but in many cases, both.

    It has one of the best food options from Mcdonalds to Starbucks depending on your appetite. Also, dining halls on campus have various different options for people to choose such as Gluten free, vegetarian, or Vegan.

    Many sororities and fraternities but I've no experience being involved with them to say more. I do know there's a frat-sororities for nearly every demographic in the school.

    Greek life is kind of intense. There are definitely the stereotypical frats, but there are also the fraternities and sororities geared towards certain professions.

    Very present on campus. Rushing is a pretty big deal. It's definitely easy to have fun outside of Greek life, but generally, students in Greek life (subjectively) have more fun.

    There are a multitude of sororities and fraternities available for students to join and become a part of. There is bound to be one fit for every student who wants to join. These groups of people are active, have so much spirit, participate in numerous activities, and can really help newcomers feel welcomed.
