    Food on campus is everywhere. You will not have a problem finding it for sure. In the summer your options are limited because not nearly as many places are open and the places that are have limited hours but during the fall there's over 40 places on campus to eat not including the food trucks and places right off campus (even though the only off campus place you can use dining dollars in Moma G's). My only complaints about AU food are the fact that there aren't enough healthy options for those that are vegan or vegetarian and that the healthy options they do have are often not available a lot of the time or as fresh as much as everything else.The new Wellness Kitchen is opening in the fall but unless you're an athlete you can't really use it and if you do it'll run you around $20 as a non athlete.

    I love the food on campus. It is a lot to choose from and the employees are very well mannered and courteous. You have access to food on campus basically in every area of it. Auburn also provides you with a pretty good amount of money to have a chance to eat anywhere on campus. Restaurants consist of Papa John's, Chick-fil-a, Greek, Chick and Grill, Denny's (open 24hrs), and more.

    The dining services Auburn has to offer continue to get better each year. There are a ton of restaurants and food courts all over campus. A few of the places to eat include Chickfila, Salsaritas, Panda Express, Papa Johns, Starbucks, etc. We also have a lot of food trucks. They include a hibachi, smoothie, donut, grilled cheese, and more. The only downside is that we do not have a cafeteria so there aren't any home cooking places.

    Most of the food is delicious and very convenient. You have to buy a dining plan if you live on campus, but it comes with plenty of money to last the semester. There's a variety of foods on campus, and each place has some healthy options.

    Chik-Fil-A, Chik-Fil-A, Chik-Fil-A. This is the cheapest option on campus ($6.40 or something for a full meal). You honestly have to think about what you can/can't buy on your budget.

    There are many places to dine on campus. Every set of dorms have their own dining area. For example, if you live in these dorms called The Village, The Village dining hall is in walking distance.

    Some people don't like that the meal plan is mandatory, but I find it incredibly convenient. ($995 declining balance, use-it-or-lose-it per semester)

    Food around campus is pretty good. It;s fun to get off campus food delivered, but on campus seems to have plenty of options.

    Auburn University is not a majority Greek campus, but we do have the Panhellenic and IFC organizations here. If that is something a student would be interested in, there are a lot of people who really enjoy it. It is not everything at Auburn University though, there are a lot of people not involved in the Greek system that are very happy to not be a part of it. It does not define who you are on this campus.

    Greek life may seem like a big part of Auburn but is actually only about 25% of the student body. If you're interested in Greek life, the fraternities have houses, and the sororities have halls and chapter rooms. There are many Greek organizations to choose from, some even including religious or service themes. If you're not interested in this, it's not overpowering, and you will still find somewhere to fit in.

    I recommend going greek, by all means they're are plenty of other options, but it's a great way to get involved before school even starts.

    I am not in a sorority but I have many friends that are involved. It is a great way to meet new people right at the start but it is not necessary. That is one thing I love about Auburn. Students do not have to be apart of the Greek community to be involved and a part of Auburn.

    I don't know much about Greek life but from my friends that live the Greek life it sounds pretty fun. And more than just fun the make friends right off the start and have things to do. They are never board!!
