Student Responses to Review Topic: Food And Dining

  • I am a current student here

    I personally love the food and all of the options here. The three dining halls are open almost all day, with additional cafes and markets spread around the campus.

    Three dining halls give students options, but the food is of course not gourmet because they are trying to feed a lot of people. Dessert is always good though.

    the food is nothing too special but its nothing terrible either, each dining hall has their specialties. the grab and go places on campus are the best, and are not too expensive.

    The meals are a huge step up from highschool food, but you get used to the routine foods every day. There's always cereal and fruits to eat when the halls are open, and there's Wells Late Night for those that need a bite in when the rest of the dining halls are closed, but just because they're open at 3pm doesn't mean they have all the food from lunch still out. It's half-decent food most of the time (Hilltop's hamburgers are either hit or miss; half charred or perfect, and the pizza could be less like cardboard), but there's nothing to complain about selection-wise when you think about all the students they're feeding.

    They food is good but after a while you get tired of the same things. Although wednesdays are Buff chicken at York dining hall and that never gets tiring. the local food however gets a 5 star rating, although it isn't cheap OHOP is the best pizza ever.

    I am not a part of Greek life but it is definitely present here. There are your typical frat parties but there are also service and academic fraternities and sororities as well. My roommate is in a service sorority that sometimes goes around campus writing inspirational messages in chalk.

    Although they get a bad rap, joining a fraternity or sorority is great way to meet people as well as make a brother or sister for life. The greatest decision I could have made was joining Sigma Phi Epsilon: This fraternity will be different.

    I'm not personally part of the Greek Life, however I have a lot of friends who are. From what I've seen, Greek Life does an amazing job at community service activities and are pretty involved in activities around campus and such.
