  • I gave this four stars because they are not the best dorms, not the worst and because it depends on what you are looking for. No crazy parties in dorms.…

    Pretty average food that can pass for home cooking now and then. There's only one cafeteria but they do a good job of variety. There are vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free options offered at every meal, every day.

    There are two options, the pickle jar or the cafeteria. Either way, you'll tire of both. Just like the dorms, suck it up because that's the kind of dedication you are going to need in the future. Just be thankful that your food is paid for and you have a roof over your head.

    Food and dinning.... Hmmm.... We have an all you can eat dinning hall.... could be better. We also have the Pickle Jar that's were we get burgers and snacks and after hour meals. The only thing I don't like is that you can use your meal exchange plan after hours in here but you can only get the unhealthy stuff. I mean, you can get a salad... but some people don't like it.

    When you arrive the food seems to be above average. However, after having gone home for break you will find that the food is less than satisfactory. But there are many options of meals so you will never go hungry.

    Once again, the food is good but not great in terms of college dining. Since the school is so small, however, you can't expect them to have unlimited options. They do cater well to vegetarians and vegans, and the food is usually pretty healthy. Students can get Meal Exchange at the school cafe The Pickle Jar if they miss a cafeteria meal, which is pretty convenient. They often have themed nights at the cafeteria which adds some fun to otherwise predictable meals.

    Has a buffet-style cafeteria. You can pay simply at the door or get a meal-plan. At the door prices: Breakfast $5.75 Lunch $7.25 Dinner $8.00 Mind you, it's a buffet you can get WHATEVER you want. You can pile high and only pay $8 for dinner. There is also a small snack-bar with simple sandwiches and other fare. Also has a small coffee shop called The What. Only had time to eat in the cafeteria. Food in the buffet is good. Some was better than others, but overall good.

    The food is usually pretty good, especially at breakfast. The options are decent, but by winter break and the end of the year things get fairly stale. There have also been occasional horror stories, like a cricket in the quiche and a slug in a girl's salad. However, those are the only two instances I've heard of, so I would say on the whole your food is safe.

    The dining hall is better than some colleges but becomes desperate for fresh ideas close to breaks. When their stock dies down, they start making such masterpieces as hummus pizza.

Student Responses to Review Topic: Greek Life

    What? There's a good Greek restaurant downtown. Beyond that, Greek life doesn't exist. Nobody has time to have much of a life outside of school. There would be little point in it here because nobody could actually do stuff with their sororities and fraternities. If students are basing their college choices on Greek life, this is definitely not the school for them. Most people here are very focused on the training.
