    The food at the First Year Center(the main source of food for freshman) was okay at first, but after awhile it starts to get old fast. There are a lot of other places to eat on campus ,but most of them are not worth the trip.

    Do not eat at the Eateries. That place WILL fulfill the Freshman Fifteen stereotype. Take advantage of the salad bar and sushi-- it's freshly made every day. The vegetarian place at Student Center is pretty good. Most importantly, the Commons has all you can eat and soft serve ice cream. Bring Tupperware.

    It could get better. It's very repetitive and unhealthy, and it's hard when you don't have a car to leave and get healthier selections.

    Not going to lie, the food is a hit or miss at Eastern. There are three major dining places on campus: the Commons, the Eateries, and the Marketplace. The Marketplace generally has the best food for meal plans and also is a grocery store that accepts Flex Dollars. The Eateries is mostly fast food type of place and though it is not the best food, it is consistent. The Commons is a hit or miss, sometimes they have good food and other times it is not so good. However, it is an all you can eat buffet style place. Eastern has Cafes in buildings all throughout campus.

    After eating the food here for a semester you get really tired of it! There are different options of course but you just get tired of it after a while. Be prepared to go grocery shopping if you want a change in food.

    Eastern hosts several eateries for students and staff and when one cannot make it to an eatery there are cafes open in all of the most occupied buildings, making it so much easier to have lunch on the run. Also, Eastern offers meal plans!

    The food is not the best if you live on campus, but for people who don't eat here everyday the options are really good!

    Greek life is a little different at Eastern because it is highly regulated. Fraternities and sororities are very close nit and everyone knows each other.

    They are around campus but it is nothing too major. They do host nice parties especially the Ques. They also host events that does get people involved.

    The Greek Life is alive here at Eastern. There are options galore, and anyone could pick from nearly a hundred fraternities or sororities.

    Greek Life is good here. They have weekly meetings on Sundays and also they make you really get involved on campus. You meet a whole lot of new people in Greek Life and it gives you a bunch of leadership and social skills. This is mostly where the fun is in my opinion cause this is a group of people who have your back, who you can hang around with and become great friends with. You can create so many new experiences in Greek Life and expand your social network.
