  • Pretty average. Dorms are very close to campus and host ~1000 students. Cost is pretty high in comparison to tuition though. …

    There are lots of options and variety with fast food and the shocker hall. The time frames to eat are kind of short.

    I don't know about dorm food, but there is an acceptable selection of restaurants on campus, and nice spaces to sit with friends and enjoy a meal.

    The only complaint is that most things shut down and only are open during the lunch hour. That's expected but wish there were more options during the non-lunch hours.

    The cafeteria at Fairmount is really good and has multiple options to choose from. The food on campus is good but has only a few places to choose from.

    The food and dining on campus is nothing special. Although you will not find five star restaurants on campus, the food is good and it fills you up.

    I am a sorority woman. Honestly, Greek life has changed my outlook of life, and education. I value the meaning of community service, I am always encouraged to do my best in academics all while having a huge support system.
