    The on-campus cafeteria has lots of dining options, usually with a few dinners and sandwich types to choose from each lunch and dinner time. Weekend brunch is a campus favorite. The quality of food is much better than other schools I have visited. It is like eating at a restaurant every night, rather than a high school cafeteria. There are a few fast service locations on campus, with a wide variety of options. The campus is fairly small, so you are never too far from the food, and often have time to stop and grab something between classes. If you head a block or two off-campus, there are a ton of great dining choices in downtown Scranton, that definitely should not be missed!

    The food is DELICIOUS! Usually college food is fattening and bland but there is so much of a variety and Scranton and all of the students love it! There are about five different places students can get food on campus. There is a cafeteria, a Chic-fil-a, a mexican place, a starbucks, a quiznos, and a few other areas to get food.

    The dining options are great. You can choose from 3rd floor DeNaples (normal college cafeteria cuisine with an upscale option such as lobster and steak, etc.), 1st floor DeNaples (Chick-fil-a, Quiznos, Starbucks, etc.), or the POD (salads and sandwiches). Everything is delicious!

    The food is fresh and made to order! There are very few days where you'll be disappointed with what is offered! You should never be hungry!

    While there are Greek Honor Societies you may be eligible to apply to, there are no sororities or fraternities to rush.
