Student Responses to Review Topic: Food And Dining

    As a freshman, you are forced to have a meal plan. It is AWFUL. You're forced to go unlimited for your first semester, and Sodexo makes gross food. We're talking pasta and pizza served literally every single day--I love pasta, when it's not watery and the same sauce isn't offered every other meal. If you try to eat healthy, there are very few options available to you. For your spring semester you can finally switch to a points plan, which is LOADS better and provides a lot more options and bang for your buck. But for real, it's an inside joke that one of the dining halls in particular gives you the runs.

    There are lots of options of where to eat. Some of the venues that are not unlimited can be expensive in terms of dollars or the meal point program. Skinny Pancake recently opened and is a great local-based crepiery.

    The food is average. But most of the good food is from points and not swipes (different dining options). There are vegetarian and vegan options however there is not a lot of variety, it tends to be the same thing everyday.

    In the dorm shown on the tour, they have access to a NICE kitchen area in case you want to forego the dining hall.

    The dining halls are great places to meet people, do work, and socialize. The food was not terrible either.

    Personally, I really don't like the dining halls but I have friends who LOVE them so it really depends on you and your personal likings.

    The dining hall food is okay, other places to eat on campus are good/better. UVM tries to incorporate healthy, local food when they can. There's a campus restaurant that serves more pub style and breakfast food that's really good. There's a good cafe in the student center (the Davis Center) and a cyber cafe in the library. Other options include the Redstone Market and the Marche, which are both points locations.

    There are two meal plants, points and unlimited. Points is where you have a set amount of points (1 point = 1 dollar) and you use it to buy a la carte items. Unlimited is your traditional dining hall experience. Both plans have a mix of dining hall blocks (times you can go to the dining hall) and points (number of points you can spend at retail dining locations). The food is pretty good; all of the chefs are professionally trained. There is a wide range of foods, and there is also a section in every location called myZONE, which has options for students who are vegetarian, vegan, and/or gluten-free.

    The food here is okay. All freshmen will be forced to use one semester of dining halls so that they do not have to manage the points system. The dining halls are consistently bad, but the good news is that second semester and onward students have to choice of opting for points dining, which allows you to choose from an array of better dining at the expense of managing your balance.

    Compared to most universities, UVM's selection is good. They are working to get more 'real food'; however, I think we are lucky to have the food that we do. I recommend Simpson dining hall or the March���©. You can have an unlimited or points meal plan.

    Only about 10% of the school goes Greek, but it seems really nice for those who do. My suitemate rushed and she adores her sorority, plus the Greek houses are truly gorgeous and are closer to Burlington than most of the other dorms.

    Greek life is a part of campus but it is in no way overwhelming. If you're a part of it great, if not, great. It's more a personal decision.

    There are both sororities and fraternities on campus, but their presence is not obtrusive, and the people involved seem friendly and like good people.

    Greek life is not very big at UVM. The few people who do decide to go greek enjoy it, but it does not drive campus social life and I wouldn't come to UVM if you care deeply about a large Greek social scene.

    Not huge at this school but if you want to join a fraternity or sorority, you have great options!

    Although I am not a part of it, Greek life is lively enough to love it and have fun if you are apart of it but one can still have a perfectly thriving social life without joining.
