  • Dorm life at UMW is probably typical of any college. There are a lot of dorm options to choose from, depending on what you are looking for. There are the…

Student Responses to Review Topic: Food And Dining

    The dining options are okay. There's an all-you-can-eat buffet as the main dining option, and some other options around campus. The food is just average, but on event days the food is usually a little bit better.

    Plenty of dining options around the campus. Chipotle, Blackstone Coffee, Pizza Hut, and Subway are some of the restaurants around the school.

    there are so many dinning options on campus and if you cannot find something that will hit the spot, there are tons of other options nearby with downtown fredericksburg being just a short walk away and central park being a short bus ride away.

    the university center, which is the main dinning hall on campus, has food of average quality. there is usually not a lot of variety and very few counters open, leading to some extremely long lines. there are five other dinning options on campus including vocceli pizza, blackstone (cafã£â©), jamba juice, and qdoba. the pizza place will deliver to your dorm room, which is a great solution if you need to stay in for the night to study.

    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.

    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 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.
