  • The dorms themselves are not all that bad. CCSR is beautiful, but only for upperclassmen. Riverway was recently renovated and is the second nicest place to live. Then there are…

    The dining hall last year was hit or miss; this year it's not even that good. If you're a vegetarian/vegan, it can be pretty difficult to find a decent meal at times.

    Not great, but there are so many other places to eat off campus too. You can also use your dining dollars to eat at Emmanuel College, which is right next door to Wheelock, and they have great food.

    The food here is not great. If you're trying to eat healthy, are gluten or dairy free, Wheelock's cafeteria does not have many options for you sadly. This is the greatest downfall of the college.

    There is an acceptable variety of food, but it still gets old after a while. The nightly specials are usually pretty good and offer a lot of Mexican, Asian, and Italian food. Weekends tend to be pretty limited with options though. The key is to really get creative and mix up what you're eating each night. It is just typical college dining food.

    Living in Boston there are many choices of restaurants nearby. But lets face it, being in college and living on our own, us students do not exactly have all the money in the world to go out and buy food everyday. This being said, the dining hall on campus has great food. There is a good variety everyday and the staff are very accommodating of vegetarian needs. The food has great flavors and you can almost always find something you love on any given day. The staff also has a website where you can find the menu for the dining hall which is very helpful in deciding whether or not you want to go eat there or go out for food.

    The food and dining are okay. I would suggest that you use your Fenway Cash wisely, if you are a picky eater like myself. Your parents will appreciate that from you in the long run. Also Shaw's Market is directly across the street and is open 24 hours, they always have great sales on snacks and 24 packs of water.

    The cafe is a great place. The atmosphere is welcoming. However, the food could use improvement. The options are limited if you are a vegetarian or vegan so make sure you plan for that.

    The food at college is always iffy but Wheelock has so many options and makes them available to their students. I enjoy eating in the cafe.

    Non-existent. I've heard you can join a sorority or fraternity at another school, but I've yet to hear of anyone actually doing this.

    Greek life is non existent on Wheelock's campus. You can try to pledge at another school but it is very difficult due to rules and regulations.
