    I personally think the food is great! The dining hall was completely been revamped and updated just a year ago and results are apparent across the board. I only didn't give it a fifth star because I imagine somewhere out there is a school with a gourmet chef in the kitchen that is truly deserving of the five star rating.

    The food taste great and the staff rotates the meals everyday and it rarely stays the exact same. Eggs may be part of breakfast everyday but they'll change it to scrambled to boiled to omelet every few days. Even the salad bar differentiates every now and then. Once you use your owl card, you can eat multiple times in that one swipe of a card but if you leave you'll have to swipe your card again.

    They have a ton of options for food. We have a Starbucks, Papa Johns, Chick fil a, Dunkin Donuts, Chinese food, and a huge buffet! Don't worry there are awesome vegetarian options as well!

    There are a copious amount of on-campus eating spots to choose from; however, some of the places are overpriced and mediocre quality. The Starbucks in the Breezeway is a hit or miss when it comes to the drinks.

    There are no chain restaurants here, just a high-school-like cafeteria serving four or five meal options each day. The food quality is really hit and miss. Much of it is frozen food warmed up just like in the high school lunch line. The kitchen staff are very nice though. Across the street are several restaurants and cafes but they are quite expensive.

    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.

    Greek life is very active and lively on campus but no organizations currently have houses. The good side to this is that membership dues are considerably lower than at schools with individual chapter houses.

    I am not part of the Greek Life at FAU currently; however, I can inform other students that the Greek Life at FAU is rich, rewarding, and a wonderful opportunity to be recognized nationally for scholarship, service, honor, and integrity. If you have the money, I would seriously consider joining one of these marvelous organizations.

    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.
