    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.

  • Dec-02-2014 I am a current student here

    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.

    The food normally isn't too bad and can be very good, but sometimes some of the options can be distasteful, particularly the vegan and vegetarian options. All the dining halls have different types of food so there should be a hall with food that you will enjoy.

    The food and dining services at UVM are provided by Sodexo. The options provided for students on campus have much variety. The menus are conscious of vegan, vegetarian, dairy-free, and gluten-free customers. The staff working to serve food were consistently very friendly and happy to be doing their jobs. They certainly helped to make eating on campus a very enjoyable experience.

    Considering it is in beautiful agricultural Vermont, you would assume the food would be delicious. Unfortunately it is not. We currently have Sodexo catering in the dining halls and marketplaces. The food is good enough to be content, but will get pretty boring after a few months. They have the typical pizza, grill, and salad bar for dinner. And pretty good selection for breakfast, including a hot meal every time. There are great options for vegan and gluten free diets, which is nice. But unless you like the same food everyday, it is not very good service. Luckily Burlington is the food capital of the world as far as I am concerned so taking a trip off campus every once and a while will solve your good food hunger.

    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!

    Greek life isn't very popular at UVM. There are both fraternities and sororities, although there are just a handful of each.

    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.

    Probably about 40% of students are involved in Greek life. It has it's presence but if you don't get caught up in it, easy to forget about it. Great parties.
