    Super accommodating in comparison to other schools. Unlimited is the basic plan- which is expensive. However, I never went hungry. I’m vegetarian and could always find something.

    In terms of college dining it's pretty decent. You're not going to get food poisoning or anything. But sometimes there's a lack of options,not enough fruits and veggies, and a lot of carbs. It's usually a hit or miss whether there's good food or not. But in terms of quality its pretty good for dining hall food.

    Didn't eat there, which is why I am giving it 3 stars. I have a friend who goes, however, and he claims that the food is 'alright'.

    Depending on where you go, the food quality can be really good. By far, Cook Dining is one of the best but sadly it typically closes around 3 in the afternoon. There are also plenty on places that don't serve typical cafeteria style food. There is The Skinny Pancake which is amazing, it has all kinds of crepes. There is also the Marche, which is sort of like a quick mart that has a fro-yo type place as well as a Wao Bao. Finally Brenan's is in the Davis Center. It has amazing milkshakes and if you're visiting, I highly suggest you go there.

    The food here is pretty bad, at least for the residence dining halls. In the main freshman dining hall (Harris Millis), they mostly just serve pizza and pasta every day and not much else. In terms of healthy eating, there are little to no options for it. The only dining hall that serves pretty healthy food is on Trinity campus which is pretty far from everything else. Freshman are required to be on the unlimited plan for their first semester which is ridiculous. You can change off of this plan if you push the dining coordinators hard enough but even then they won't give you much more options. Aside from the dining halls, the food you can use points for is actually pretty good but few places offer any very healthy options.

    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.

Student Responses to Review Topic: Greek Life

    Greek life is a little bit weird here. It exists but about half of it isn't really officially recognized by the school. The process of getting into greek life seems to be pretty subjective and they mostly just throw parties.

    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.

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