    There are a lot of different restaurant options on campus. However, I feel like all I find is pizza and salad. I wish each restaurant had more variety. Overall, the food is good.

    The food is decent but gets old very fast. They don't really change it that much. I feel like it is also overpriced, watch your meal plan and you will be fine.

    Food is only good for the first few weeks, after that you will get tired of packman food. (Lackman is the company that runs dining at Adelphi)

    The food here is generally okay, after all, nothing compares to your good-ole' home cooked food. There are a lot of options, and Adelphi does its very best in order to provide for you in the event that you have any special dietary needs.

    The food is okay, but it never changes at the University Center. The dining hall food is good, but it has its days.

    The food is excellent. There is a variety of plates to choose from and it was always satisfying. There are a few things here and there that weren't so good but overall the food is high quality.

    Adelphi has numerous sororities and fraternities to choose from. Each organization holds several events prior to the initiation in the spring semester. All organizations have a great balance of community service and activities to get to know one another.

    Sororities and Fraternities especially have their own thing going on. They stand by each other and work as a team to be leaders in this community.

    There is Greek Life on campus, but if you are not Greek life, you are not treated any different.

    Greek life at Adelphi University makes up a very large part of the population. All of the sororities and fraternities truly care for the philanthropy that they support. They aim for sisterhood and brotherhood and hold its members to high standards and values. Hazing is illegal, and if an organization is caught hazing, penalties and consequences are strictly enforced.

    There is no Greek Housing yet somehow, the Greek Life is very active on campus, which I find bizarre.

    There is plenty of Greek Life spirit all over the campus and if that is what you plan on joining I am sure you can find the one that best suits you, do your research! There is no hazing so dont back out because of ehat you have seen on the television !

    We have, thirteen Greek organizations, I'd like to say. As a freshman, you are not allowed to join until you're second semester because the school and the organizations want you to settle in and focus on your grades for a semester. Two of my sophomore friends pledged this past semester, and it's competitive and time-consuming to get in, but they said they really enjoyed it.
