Student Responses to Review Topic: Food And Dining

    The main dining center is Whitney, and the food is usually hit or miss. However, we are getting a new dining service this year, which may change my opinion!

    Honestly, the food service here this year is not good. There are a few good places to eat on campus, but they either do not accept meal plans or have very unhealthy food. The main buffet-style dining hall does not have much variety, and the food is often sub-par (I have had breadsticks that hurt my teeth to bite into). However, the Student Senate has recognized this and is working to get a new catering team in place. One good thing about La Crosse is that they are great about listening to the student body's opinions on issues.

    There are multiple places on campus to eat. The most used facility is the Whitney Center. The food is decent. Some things are great, and others not so much. One great thing about Whitney is that they have ice cream all day and good desserts. Another popular place to eat is the Cellar. This is on the other side of the campus and at the Cellar you can order pizza, salads, burgers, wraps, and more. The Cellar tends to have higher quality food than Whitney.

    They call it dorm food for a reason. That's exactly what it is. There are great off campus restaurants and numerous fast food locations around campus. This could be better, but certainly could be worse.

    The food at any college is not going to be like your moms. However, La Crosse has a lot of different meal options to choose from.

    There are many fraternities and sororities to join on this campus. My roommate was part of a sorority, and she enjoyed it very much. She was involved in lots of volunteering, and was extremely dedicated towards her studies.

    Greek life prides themselves on their volunteer work and brotherhood/sisterhood. This isn't your traditional greek life, however strong friendship bonds are made by their members.

    I don't know much, I do know there are 5 Greek life houses. I believe that's about how many.

    There are fraternities on campus with houses, however they aren't a dominant force in the school. There isn't any great pressure to pledge.

    Personally, I am not involved in Greek life but I do now that these organizations help out with a lot of events on campus. Greek Life recently helped out with the pageant Mr. UWL. I have two friends who are in Greek life, one is in a sorority and one in fraternity. The amount of time you have available and money you are willing to spend affects your decision greatly. The sorority my friend is in doesn't meet too often so she has plenty of time to do other things, while still being connected to the girls and community. The men in the fraternity my other friend is in hang out a lot, either in their free time or at events/meetings. It is truly like a separate community and second family.
