Student Responses to Review Topic: Food And Dining

    The food at UMW is okay at best. There is a pizza place on campus, the Underground (which serves sandwiches), a Jamba Juice, a Qdoba, a coffee shop, and the main dining hall. Freshman are now required to purchase the any-time meal plan, which is very expensive and limits everything they eat to the main dining hall. There are, however, several good off-campus dining options nearby, and older students who can get a meal plan with flex money do have several options when it comes to their meal plan.

    Not too terribly many options for food but still delicious and good off-campus places.

    The food is really a low point of the school. We have a lot of options, but it doesn't always taste that great. At our main dining hall it's either hit or miss, mostly miss. Then we also have a sandwich place, a sub place, a pizza place, a coffee shop, a healthy to-go area, and then we had a chicken wing/fast food place, but that is being closed in favor of a fast food food truck. At those places, you usually get good food, but it's not as much variety as at the dining hall. But we are getting a new student center with a new main dining hall, a jamba juice, and a qdoba, so that seems promising!

    There's plenty of dining on campus, but none is 24/7 which would be nice. I go to just about all the diners on campus and they offer healthy options as well as splurge foods like pizza and cookies! The staff is knowledgeable about the food they prepare, especially in Seacobeck.

    Currently, there are 4 different options for food on campus: the main dining hall, Seacobeck, a coffee shop, Blackstone, a sandwich/pizza/wingery, the Nest, and the Underground, a more organic and themed dining experience. Coming next fall in the new student center there will be a new dining hall and restaurant as well.

    The food kinda sucks. There is not a lot of variety unless you go to the dining hall. The dining hall food can either be great, or mediocre and lacking flavor.

    I do not prefer the main dining hall Seaco but during breakfast it's really good. The best food is at the nest they serve wings pizza wraps burgers and subs and other things which are good majority of the time. The underground is mainly for the vegans and healthy eaters and they serve smoothies BUT during the weekends after 12 they serve the Chicken and Waffles and believe me when I say the waffles will get you addicted making you get out of your bed 10.40 to be at the line so you'll be the first to order it by 11. Yeah it's that good.

    The food at Mary Washington is pretty good. Seacobeck hall offers tons of options from an Italian room to a Grill, however, the hours of operation are pretty small. The Eagle's nest has a great sandwich place comparable to subway, as well as The Wingery where you can get chicken and fries and burgers, as well as Vocelli's Pizza which has GREAT pizza. The last option for dining on campus is The Underground which has healthy options including vegan and vegetarian options. The Underground has sandwiches, soup, smoothies, and salads.

    There is one sorority affiliated with the campus, but they don't have a house or anything. Then we also have a few fraternities not associated with the school that have houses off campus and throw parties sometimes.

    There's technically one sorority and one fraternity on campus, but Greek Life isn't a big deal here.

    Pretty much doesn't exist. If you're dying to get on a fraternity/sorority, you can do it but nobody really cares about greek life.

    There's this so called fraternity on the low but there no one special and there's a sorority here also my roommate and suite mates were in but apparently they didn't like it because none stayed. Greek life isn't so much special here.

    There are some Fraternities that are not sponsored by the school on campus. The Fraternities are service oriented and they are a big part of school spirit.

    There are a few clubs for greek life, but it's not really a huge thing at UMW. However, there are so many other clubs and organizations that you won't really miss it.

    The University doesn't officially recognize Greek Life but there is a sorority and fraternity that recruits students.
