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

Student Responses to Review Topic: Food And Dining

  • Apr-17-2015 I am accepted here and planning to attend soon

    The dining area located in Shocker hall is great. It's served buffet style. As soon as you walk in, there is a majestic fireplace that makes the environment feel like a modern restaurant rather then a cafeteria. The food is served in five major locations. One location holds a salad bar along with lunch meat to make sandwiches. Another location is the grill/main entree section where the main dishes are served along with sides. There is also a international section (When I went they were serving an asian style chicken with rice and veggies). There is also a pizza area where various types of pizza are served (they know how much college students love pizza). And the last section is a desert area with various pre made deserts along with an ice cream machine. Overall the food tasted good and the was a very large variety. I enjoyed my meal and wouldn't mind eating there continuously through the week.

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

    There are options for food in multiple places on campus and many quick and student friendly off campus dining options in the near vicinity.

    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.

    It's not bad as I thought it was going to be. TV makes sororities and fraternities look so bad. But it's not like that at all.

    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.
