    FAU has a generous array of fast-food restaurants that students can select from while on campus, including the following: Papa John's, Wendy's, Subway, Jow Jing, Starbucks, Quiznos, Chick-N-Grill, The Burrow, and Chick-fil-A (which will soon replace Einstein Brother's Bagels). There are also various 'grab-n-go' stores such as Outtakes. The university is a five-minute drive away from Boca Mall and a variety of sit-down restaurants as well.

    Food could be better. This would be one of the downfalls of FAU. They should work to accommodate more healthy options and improve the vegan and vegetarian sections.

    Great variety of foods and places to eat! There is The Centre Marketplace which is Florida Atlantic UniversityĆ¢??s all-you-can-eat cafeteria. You can also find other places to eat such as: Quiznos, Chick N Grill, Wendy's,Jow Jing and Olo Sushi, Papa John's, Salsarita's Fresh Cantina, Juice Blendz,Subway, Starbucks, Einstein Bros Bagels, Dunkin' Donuts, Red Mango's (which is everyone's favorite frozen yogurt), and The Burrow Bar and Grill which has a nice bar, billiards tables, a large stage and numerous flat screen televisions. They also have a place called Outtakes, which is FAU's own one-stop shopping convenience store!

    Food in the breezeway is all disgusting and poorly prepared fast food, and I haven't heard much better about the cafeteria, unless you dig eating leftovers for days in a row. Luckily, the school isn't too far from Mizner Park, which has tons of restaurants and interesting businesses.

    When it comes to food, FAU has much to offer. Once you finally become sick of the cafeteria food, all you have to do is take a walk to the food court. We have a Wendy's, a Quiznoes, Chinese food, and many more. We also have a subway that's open until 2am! If that still doesn't satisfy your cravings, there's plenty of places off campus. Moes and Chipotle is only 10 minutes away. If it's fine dining you want there's a P.F Changs, J. Alexanders, and Mario's right across the street.

    I was going to join a sorority but I got a lot of mixed signals and for the amount of money it is to join I was not going to take any chances.

    This is the Honors College, students can still be part of a sorority of the main campus but this campus does not currently have a greek life.

    I am not a person that fits into one set of beliefs. However, there are sororities to choose from if that is your interest.

    It is off campus and a lot of things happen. They do a lot of community service and have a good time.

    The Greek life of Fau is a joke. There are no frat/sorority houses for students and they people in Frats are worse than at other schools. they try to be very outgoing about their Greek life and how it is, but knowing people from schools like FSU,UF, and UCF the FAU frat people are annoying and aren't taken seriously by other students.
