    It is definitely not Mom's home cooking but our cafe does offer many different choices throughout the week along with a Subway style sandwich bar that is open throughout the entire week that you will have unlimited swipes into as a freshman. I do wish the cafe was open a little later since it is only open until 8. There is also the the Pioneer Cafe and a Mexican grill that you can use your pio points (100 or 200 depending on meal plan) to purchase food. These are open until 12 on weekdays and 11 on weekends.

    I do not eat on campus very often because I commute, but the time I have, the food has been pretty good. The other thing that I like about the dining commons is that they are pretty accommodating for people with food allergies. I cannot eat gluten, and if you ask, they will make you something separately so that you can eat food without cross contamination.

    The cafeteria isn't the best but the workers do take requests. If there's something I do not like in the cafeteria, I can request a meal from the workers.

    The dining hall just got renovated in the Summer of 2017. It may not be mom and dad's cooking but it is still decent. There are several different options each day so you will never really get sick of eating the same thing.

    I like that we have a ton of different options for food. We have our main dining hall that was recently updated and several other smaller places to get food on campus. What I like best is that the dining staff will take your suggestions into consideration. One day I asked if we could have sushi and within the next week, we had a chef that would make personalized sushi for each student.

    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.

    There are a lot of different greek organizations on campus. I am a sister of Kappa Delta Phi National Affiliated Sorority. We emphasize philanthropy, and this year all of our philanthropy fundraisers have helped benefit the Alzheimer's association. One really great thing about our greek life on campus is that we all get along really well together, and are very supportive of one another's goals and ideas.

    The Greek life isn't the best for every culture on campus. There's only one divine nine on campus which is Phi Beta Sigma. There are two Latina sororities and one Latino fraternity.

    Greek life does exist on Utica's campus but is not too overpowering. I decided to join the co-ed service fraternity, Alpha Phi Omega. Together we complete several different service projects in the local are to help the campus, the community, and the nation. We strive on the three principles of leadership, friendship, and service and this organization has helped be become a leader and help prepare me for post graduation.

    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.
