  • Dorms are great to live in, but I give this a 1 because they really remind me of a prison. God forbid you watch the TV a little too loud,…

    I wish the dining halls were open earlier and later on the weekends. The food is at the same level as any college around the country.

    The main campus dining hall was revamped only a few years ago and the food is great. The menu is constantly changing from day to day, and they accommodate any special dietary needs/wants. You can choose between several different dining plans (swipe and dining point amounts). There are two dining halls and three on campus cafes/food stops. There's also a ton of places that are very close to campus to dine at, and they all generally accept York College Flex bucks, too!

    The Johnson dining hall does have a lot of options to choose from. They always have pizza and fries and burgers/hot dogs. The dining hall is mainly clean and the staff are so nice and welcoming. The West Campus dining hall is not as noisy and has less choices of food, but it has a bigger salad selection. Besides the 2 main dining halls, there are other food venues that are very popular.

    Johnson dining hall was just re-amped with a new look and feel. It's going to be a great place to eat during the 2014-2015 academic year.

    There's Johnson Dining Hall and West Campus Community Center, they eat have their pro's and con's. The food usually isn't too bad and on holidays there are special themed dinners, (Thanksgiving, Easter, Mardi Gras.) In addition, there's Sparts Den, Coffee Cart and Pura Vida, they have food such as, sandwiches, croissants, bagels, cookies, and drinks, coffee, soda, water, juice, and tea. Pura Vida is similar to a Starbucks, and Sparts Den is like Subway, Qdoba and Sushi all in one.

    As an underclassmen you are required to get a meal plan because the dorms we stay aren't equipped with a kitchen. The meal plans are expensive but you will not have to worry about running out of swipes or things to eat because you have plenty! I chose a split plan where I have half the swipes go to the dining hall and then the other half go to the coffee shops around campus. That works pretty well for me.

    There is a wide variety of food all over campus, but the main dining hall can make you feel a bit scurvy until your body adjusts.

    Johnson dining hall has horrible food, sometimes they may have some good food but most of the time its not very good. West Campus dining hall has excellent food it Is always cooked perfectly and the dining hall overall seems very clean.

    Scurv is hit or miss. I swear they put laxatives in the food, though.

    There's over a dozen sororities and fraternities on campus, but it's not a go Greek or go home kind of school. It's there for anyone who wants to join and it's a good way to give back to communities, fund raise for charities, and meet friends.

    Used to be great here. More and more frats/sororities are having their letters taken away. Kind of sad really.

    While York is not a huge school and there is not a frat row type of set up among the Greek organizations, there is still a presence at York College. I am not personally involved with Greek life, but know several people who are and they all seem to enjoy it.

    There are six sororities and eight fraternities at York that may interest you. Each one follows the corresponding council and adheres to it's guidelines.
