  • The dorms are constantly active with a flurry of activities, games, and active resources. The dorms are set so Freshmen, Seniors, Sophomores, and Juniors can all interact and give help…

    If I could give an extra star, I would! The dining here is incredible! Everyday there is a gamut of quality foods offered in the cafeteria. If food is important in your college decision, do not disqualify UNW without checking it for yourself!

    On campus, flexible choices, no GMO's, tons of healthy options. Students can take out for eating later if their schedule is crunched. Lots of welcoming spaces to eat and socialize. Students are able to add on to their accounts and roll funds over to second semester.

    The food is alright. I guess it's good when compared to other schools, but I got sick of it pretty quick. Not the biggest variety either.

    Awesome food program. Lots of great options and its not just frozen stuff heated up. Many of the food options are homemade.

    The food is pretty good for cafeteria food, and the freshman meal plan provides enough money for each semester if you don't go crazy. Jut pay attention to your balance. The Nest leaves something to be desired as their is only fast-food style dishes and few healthy options.

    The food here is probably similar to most Universities. It is pretty average. The prices are extremely high however. The quality of the food is a little bit above average, but there is little variety so you can get sick of the dining food very quickly.

    The food at the Billy is very good. They have the best staff there and the food is prepared very well. The Eagle's Nest in the student center is so nice to have, because it's close to the dorms. Sometimes the same food gets a little old, but there is always a special that brings a little variety.

    The food plan is a bit spendy, but I do enjoy having such great food! I talk with my friends from other state school and they always complain about the small selection and unhealthy food. However, Bon Appetite actually makes the food which the cafeteria sells. The choices are very unique and can be quite healthy, depending what you choose to eat.

    The cafeteria and several cafe and coffee shops on campus are catered by a good food service company. The areas are well kept and there is a large variety of food available. Fresh fruit and vegetables are always available. They also have special menus, such as Gluten Free. The new dining area in the Billy Graham Center is very welcoming with large and small tables, comfy chairs and fireplaces. Great on a cold Minnesota winter day or night.

Student Responses to Review Topic: Greek Life

  • Jun-16-2013 I am a current student here

    Greek life is a funny topic seeing as it is a Bible college and that the New Testament is written in Greek. In light of that, I'd say that there is a very active Greek life. Also, my roommates know a little bit of Greek.
