    There are many places to eat on and off campus. On campus places do have really good food but it is a little expensive if you are not using a meal plan but off campus site allow you to use GU gold so you can get food that is cheaper.

    As a commuter, I am not one to be found in the cafeterias or dinners around campus, but I can be spotted grabbing a snack from some of the smaller cafes which offer an excellent variety of food. The variety is so extensive that one can even find gluten free options which truly shows how insistent Gannon University is on catering to the individuals.

    There are multiple dining establishments for students to choose from. The cafeteria provides a choice of salad bar, pizza options, a main entree, ice cream bar, and other options. The caf can be hit-or-miss, but if students are not interested in the main entree or pizza, they can get a sub or sandwich made at the deli station. Doc's Landing provides grill options such as grilled cheese, burgers, sandwiches, soups, salads, and pizza. Knight's Cove provides a deli-style option for subs, sandwiches, and wraps, as well as a station for burritos/tacos/etc. The Courtyard Cafe in the Morosky building provides different sandwiches, soups, and pizza options. All of these accept meal plans as payment, but students can use GUGold or cash as well. Gannon is within walking distances of multiple bars and restaurants such as the Irish pub and restaurant Molly Brannigan's, McDonald's, Subway, and other local establishments. Many local Erie businesses accept GUGold as payment, which is an ID card issued to every student which doubles as a reloadable cash card.

    The food is awesome and it is all you can eat when you go into the cafeteria. There are also grab and go places that help when you have a short time period between classes.

    Fraternities and sororities make up a large percentage of the student body. Fraternity and sorority members participate in homecoming and greek week. Members are usually involved in many other clubs on campus, as well. Each fraternity and sorority has unique characteristics, requirements, philanthropies, etc.

    I love greek life and would definitely advise anyone to join. You are a leader on campus, and get to meet many more people. It also provides a great foundation for you while in college.

    Gannon currently has five sororities and six fraternities with a seventh in the making. Greek life is fun, exciting and opens many doors for the students who chooses to go greek. I encourage every student to investigate greek life on campus, especially Phi Sigma Sigma. LITP!

    Gannon is big on greek life. Even if you are not in Greek they are still welcoming and are not the stereotypical greeks. There is a fraternity or sorority that fits almost everyone.

    About 17% of students at Gannon go greek. Every sorority and fraternity offers a different experience but they all contribute to great philanthropies and they do service work around the Erie area. Most greeks at Gannon will tell you that going greek was the greatest choice they have ever made, it gave them something to do during their free time. For some it ever stopped them from transferring to a different school. The friendships made through Greek organizations are the type of friends you have forever.

    Homecoming is one of the opportunities Greek life gets to shine and it's so much fun! I danced with Alpha Psi Omega this year in a tribute to broadway and we won in two different categories! Sororities and Fraternities alike dance and make a float for the parade. The fraternities here aren't your typical frats. I went to a Root Beer Float Keggerat the OGWC and got a free root beer float and some knowledge on alcohol safety. While these guys do know how to have fun they also have a lot of heart. This past semester APD lost a brother in a tragic accident, not only did the entire greek family feel this loss, but the whole university paid tribute to the student in different ways.

    If it's right for you, You'll know! There are wide variety of sororities and fraternities to choose from. There are no incidents of hazing and it's strictly forbidden here. They are the typical media displayed greek life either, they are friendly and all get along with each other as well as non-greeks. There are no cliques.
