    All the on campus places are really good, but the one place in south village is only decent when there are really big tours eating there, like eagle expo or orientation.

    The food quality of the dining hall ranges from good to bad depending on the day and the hour that it is visited. Constants include having a built to order sandwich, pasta and different kinds of pizza, meaning that they are offered everyday after eleven. On the main campus are Taco Bell, Starbucks, Subway, Chik-Fil-A, and other food places.

    I think there should be more options for dining and perhaps additional locations for dining, everything is condensed so it is much more crowded and hard to get food on time.

    A lot of different choices on campus. Some healthy choices. Pita Pit which is off campus delivers anywhere on campus, and so does the nearby Jimmy Johns. Chipotle is coming to the Gulf Coast Town Center, which is 5 minutes north of the school.

    Greek life here at FGCU is pretty strong. We don't have Sorority or Fraternity houses, so that makes the costs for joining a lot lower than any other campus.

    Even though FGCU doesn't have Greek Housing, it's still incredibly fun and something I would recommend as a sorority member. You get out of it what you put into it! I have incredible experiences and memories with my sisters, women in other sororities and with fraternity members and many more waiting for me that I'm looking forward to.

    Our greek life is thriving and people really seem to enjoy it. It is a lot of money for not having housing though.
