  • Apr-12-2017 I am researching this school and have visited the campus

    The other thing that struck me was that there seemed to be a lot of options on where to eat which is always a good thing.

    Food is alright on campus. The main dining hall Valsetz has a nickname called Valshits which is pretty self explanatory. One good thing about it is that you pay wholesale price but idk other colleges could be doing that as well. Other than that the other two places to get food on campus is the Wolf Express, Cafe Allegro, and the Western Deli/Wolf Grill.

    You're better off cooking your own food, due to the lack of variety at the dining hall. I never want to see pasta again.

    The dining hall on campus is fine; they have the basics and every week there are themed days and specials to entice you. But for some the same old thing can get boring and so they find other options. Downtown located right outside of campus provides a lot of food places that would interest the college crowd and they are all really good.

    The dining hall is called Valsetz and it is pretty good. They have a good selection of different foods everyday and they stay open late at night so if you get the munchies. Also in town there are some small town restaurants that are really good such as West Coast Pizza or Yangs.

    As to be expected, eating the same food on campus day in and out get old- the food is good though. The town if filled with cheap little restaurants to help add some varitety.

    Good so far as I know. There is a cafeteria connected to the main dorms, and a food court in the university center. I have only eaten on campus a couple of times, so my experience with the food itself is limited.

    Campus dining is small, its called Valsetz, and its the main place where all students go if they have a meal plan. There is also the Cafeteria Summit at the Werner University Center, but its a lot more expensive there than the dining hall.

    Greek life is dead here. There are 2 sororities on campus one is Alpha Chi Omega. No one really cares for the other one. Alpha Chi is really affiliated with OSU chapter. Girls looks are alright but they are all extremely friendly.

    There is one ferternity but there is no house for it. The Greek life is not a big part of the Western campus but there IS a huge sense of community and public service.

    Until recently there were no fraternities or sororities. I think they have recently founded a non-residential fraternity in the last couple of years.
