    The cafe on my visit was truly something else! It was great! $10 for unlimited amounts of food!

    The Student Union Building, as well as other buildings on campus has awesome dining services. There are plenty of places to buy food, and the student meal plan area has anything you could want. There are also tons of good restaurants within walking distance of campus, catering to a pretty diverse group of tastes.

    There are food places distributed all over the campus. I liked that I could pick different places depending on what side of the campus I was at. My favorite places were Einstein's Bagels and Panda Express.

    Boise State University has wonderful food in the cafeteria for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. They also have a number of different fast food options such as subway, panda express, and Chick-Fil-A.

    I plan on signing up for the all you can eat plan 7 days a week. I don't know if I will need that plan but I it doesn't seem like it cost that much more than the others. I will see how it works after the first semester.

    Honestly, the food at the BRC is delicious at first. But like all good things, it must be taken with moderation. The campus has a variety of food choices besides the BRC in the Student Union Building. Take your pick from Subway, Panda Express, Papa John's, Chick-fil-a and Einstein's Bagels. Around campus (and I mean like 5-10 minutes walking slowly) is a Pita Pit, Papa Joe's, Tree City, McDonald's, Taco Bell, and many others. Starbucks, Tree City, Moxie and others fill out the coffee and smoothies shops around campus. And downtown has a variety of options for those over the age of 21. And if you don't feel like fast food, grocery stores are everywhere.

    There is a dinning facility inside the student union building that provides an all you can eat buffet from dawn til dusk. Although the quantity of their food is great, the quality is not as good. But, there are many other on campus restaurants that you can get food at, if at slightly elevated prices. If nothing suits your interest there, there are other options still. Other restaurants are reasonable distances within the city. You could walk, ride your bike, or easily drive to one of the many locations throughout the city.

    The Dining Hall (BRC) is hit or miss. Some nights they have good food, others not so much.

    There are fraternities and sororities, but the greek life doesn't at all dominate the campus. You usually don't hear about it unless either of them is hosting a campus event.

    I haven't noticed a really big Greek Life here at Boise State. However, the small community that I have noticed is very tight knit and extremely supportive of the community. They aren't a chaotic group of party people, but seem more attuned toward being examples for the community and have a focus on developing well rounded citizens through academics and community service.

    Greek life is very small on campus. Although I'm not involved with the it, all the people in them are extremely kind! They do a lot of community service and are just all around awesome.

    The Greek system as BSU is pretty small. I'm not a member but from what I've seen it's pretty divided. About half the greeks are really devoted to breaking stereotypes, doing philanthropy and benefiting the campus and the community and the other half is like, Yeah, we party all the time, bro. You pre-gamin?
