    The first thing about food is that no food will ever replace my mom's cooking, but having said that, the food in our dining commons vary from different type of foods Everything from pizza, barbecue-style and homecoming. Sometimes when you go to the between meal times such as lunch to dinner there might less options available for you but that just depends on one's schedule.

    Since the update of the dinning commons the food quality has greatly increased. It may not be home cooking but it can be close to it.

    Honestly, not my mom and dads home cooking, but there is always something to find to eat. They have a big variety of food. It is harder to find options for vegetarian at time, or even just health options.It is a lot of carbs, but it does teach a lot of healthy eating which was nice.

    The food here is not bad it does sometimes require more seasoning but other than that it is good. I highly recommend keeping some salt and pepper in your bag when you come to eat.

    The Dining Commons has a wide variety of food for students. Being off campus causes me to cook at home more than come to campus to eat, but I do come a few times a week to meet up with friends and have always been satisfied.

    There are not too many food choices here plus, halal food is not available despite having too many Muslim students.

    The cafeteria has unlimited swipes if you have a meal plan and it includes a salad bar, dessert center, ice cream bar, pizza bar, and sandwich bar. During breakfast, they have a waffle bar. There is other dining, which costs money or you can use the money on your student id card that you get from your meal plan. There is Subway, the Pioneer cafe, Common grounds (coffee, smoothies, etc.) and a little snack shack located where all the classes are. All of these places are on campus. Then there is an IHOP and Dunkin' Donuts which is walking distance from the campus.

    Everyone knows that hands down one of the most important parts of choosing a college is the food, even if you don't admit that in your college search. It seems like our cafeteria messes up what you didn't possibly think could be messed up, but every once in a while pull of a really amazing meal. It's hit or miss. There have been days where we live off cereal and the sandwich/wrap bar. But other days, you can't decide what you want to eat because everything served is their best. The salad bar would be better if there was fresh salad. The hit or miss aspect applies to the Sodexo employees as well. There are some that are the sweetest people. They are happy to serve you, take interest in your life, and always smile. Others, well let's just say you better learn who to stay clear of. Don't worry though, the chocolate milk, ice cream, and deserts are second to none and as much as students complain, when you go home and don't have access to the caf and all their food, you'll be ready to go back! A great positive is that there always seems to be some event somewhere on campus that they're giving away food! Especially finals week. Never turn down free food, especially because it's usually really good. The pioneer café is good and has plenty of choices! Subway isn't a bad option either. Both are a little pricy, but nice when you need a break from the caf, or have a late night in the library.

    I am apart of a Community Serviced based organization called Alpha Phi Omega (APO), but we also have a lot of social Greek organizations as well. APO has been amazing because we have been able to do community services around campus, the community, and for smaller organizations.

    The greek life on campus was one of the coolest things about this school. They are really involved in the community and they host a lot of events to help keep the school more fun and lively. They also take pledging very seriously and they never hesitate to show off a bit during any other student events or activities. They all have a lot of charisma and confidence.

    I'm not a part of any Greek Life but you see them around campus. If that's something you're interested in, it's definitely an option at Utica.
