    There are always lots of options in the cafeteria. You can choose from the hot meal line, the deli, the pizza bar, or the soup and salad bar. The food is always good and made fresh every day.

    Wayland provides meal plans (you can select which plan you would like to pay for) that allow students to eat in the cafeteria or grab a snack from the snack wagon. The food is varied and is well prepared! There are many options and the dining halls are open at 7:30 in the mornings for students with early classes! The dining halls also are open on the weekends for all of the students who stay on campus.

    The cafeteria food is not great, but it gets the job done. Sometimes it is stellar. Sometimes it is sub par. Most of the time the food is adequate.

    Aside from the one sorority and fraternity, there are not any other forms of greek life on this planet. The goal they strive for is to teach the students how to mature and become good christian adults and leaders as they go out into the real world.
