    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!

    I've not eaten the campus food, but the food and drink options even across the street are awesome. The best place is Wurst Bar, which has quite a few local and microbrewery options for beers. The food is exceptional as well.

    Not too great, as a commuter you can go out to cheaper places with more variety. On campus though there's the Student Center which has Wendy's, Pizza, Salads, Subway, and Chinese. Then the Eateries which was some pretty overpriced food court stuff. And then the Commons where there's a 7.35 fee to get in and they have a set food choice available. As a freshman, you have to get a meal plan if you live on campus too.

    The dining commons and market place are great! One offers All-You-Care-To-Eat and one has a deli or hot food station. Although there are some good choices, there are also bad. The Eastern Eateries resembles a food court with fried and greasy foods, which is not always the best food choice.

    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.

    The Greek Life isn't as strong as other universities but they still have a presence. Make sure you go to orientation, check booths about each one, and choose what you like. If it isn't your thing, don't sweat it. You can still find people to relate with outside of it.

    There are a ton of fraternities and sororities at EMU. There seems to be a lack of consistency with certain groups but they do give it their best shot to provide entertaining events.
