  • It's on average 3-4 Brother Rats to a room sometimes more. The rooms are small and you have to learn to deal with being in close proximity all the time.…

    The food definitely is not the pride of VMI, but you quickly learn to be creative. Its always cooked for you, and hours of operation are very good. It takes a few days for your digestive system to get adjusted, but once it does, you can pretty much eat anything for the rest of your life.

    If you like powdered eggs, sausages that you could wring the grease out of, and pre-made, cold waffles/pancakes then this is the place for you. You will eat these few options everyday you are here for four years. I literally mean those are the only foods I have been served for breakfast in my three years of attending. Lunch is the only guaranteed chance of getting good food (you can make your own sandwich). If I could rate it lower than 1 star I would because I often find myself skipping meals because the quality is so poor. The best part is you are paying roughly $8000 a year for this terrible food and they know that there's nothing you can do about it.

    I can't say the food was amazing, but it was more than ok, considering the fact that you actually get to choose what you want to eat!

    The food is terrible, but there is a lot of it. You pay up front in the tuition costs per semester for the food, and you can eat whenever you want. Good for those who aren't picky, as food choice is very limited as well.

    VMI's mess hall has edible food, but it's not particularly palatable, especially day after day. Cadets survive by balancing the basic food with snacks kept in their rooms and takeout.

    Crozet dining, oh boy. What can I say? It's food. There's plenty of it but not a whole lot of variety. You here the upperclassmen complain about it a lot more. It's not terrible though.
