    If you are looking for a meal plan, FSU has two great dining halls, the Fresh Food CO. and the Suwannee Room. Both are fairly clean and offer a variety of food. If you want to buy your meals everyday, you can still attend these rooms or you can go to the many on campus restaurants. Be prepared for the crowds though and plan your days accordingly. If the largest crowd is around noon, plan your lunch for 11:30 or 1:00 so you can get in and out of the dining halls accordingly.

    Dining Halls aren't always the best, lets be honest; but FSU is trying to turn this around. The two dining halls are now starting to serve healthier alternatives, my favorite was the dinners. From 8-10pm the have a Healthy Nole Dinner which usually included a leaner high protein meat and lots of fresh prepared vegetables. If you are getting a meal plan I suggest getting the new VIP meal plan, this allows you to use one meal plan swipe at any of the other non-dining hall food locations on campus such as Chick-fila, Subway, Chili's, Pollo Tropical, Papa Johns, Freshens, Salad Creations, and Miso.

    Tons of options--the university has integrated both dining halls along with other commercial restaurants right on campus such as Starbucks, and dozens of other names.

    Dining Halls aren't too too bad, but just get repetitive after a while. Definitely watch what you eat though, there are cases of people getting sick, or sometimes being served less than fresh foods. Also a lot of time they run out of food ingredients to make solid meals so they improvise hahaha. Definitely save your Flex Bucks for those kinds of days

    If it;s your first year living on campus, it might be in your best interest to buy a meal plan. It may be hard for newcomers to cook for themselves, especially when you have to share a kitchen with your whole floor. After your first year though, when you get the hang of things I highly suggest getting off the meal plan. The food gets monotonous and is very unhealthy for you. Although, the dining experience may add a social opportunity for some, I opted out because of the horrible selection.

    Okay, a meal plan? No. The answer is no. You just don't want to do that. Go ahead and get one, but don't get the unlimited, that's for sure. The two dining halls, Fresh Food and Suwanee are ok, but not that great. They have a salad bar and then they have different food stations. I frequent fresh because I do have a meal plan and it is closer to my dorm. There is a salad bar, a pasta station, a grill, a deli and pizza. The pizza makes me sick every single time. I basically live off sandwiches and pasta. The on campus restaurants are great though! We have chicfila, subway, chilis, einsteins, salad creations, papa johns, sushi, pollo tropical, rising roll and freshens. SO GOOD. Get garnet bucks and go crazy.

    There are Greek Sororities and Fraternities present. They look nice from the outside but I haven't really looked into them.

    Greek Life floods the red brick sidewalks of campus. Join greek life to be in a large social network and for future connections. Make sure you have a free schedule, greek life is involving and demanding. They are expensive, so make sure they're worth it and you keep your grades up.

    Greek life is life. Greek life is very big here at FSU. However, even if it is big, you do not have to be a part of it. Granted you will see a sorority girl with her spirit jersey in just about every part of campus, there's so much outside of it as well. But if you do decide to join it, join aphio aka the best one. jk that's my frat but do what you want to do

    It's everywhere, I personally find it annoying, but what can be done? It's usually not a problem, but some of them don't have the nicest of reputations around campus.

    They are everywhere I have heard a lot of good and not so good things. But if you are set and joining the pain will be worth the gain.

    Greek life is big at FSU but not overwhelmingly popular. There is not just one sorority row at FSU unlike other colleges, instead the fraternity and sorority houses are spread apart and some are in unsafe areas.
