    The campus is small so the on-campus selections are limited. However there are so many restaurants nearby and in the city centers near GU main campus that it's a great time to spend with new friends and share our culture.

    There's only one dining hall on campus, so it can get crowded during rush hour meal times. There are a huge number of vegetarian options, and the chocolate chip cookies are divine. Epicurean, usually just called Epi, is open 24 hours a day on weekends and is a popular spot for late night drunken quesadilla runs. There are a ton of restaurants around campus that will deliver to your dorm building.

    Leo's is the only dining hall, but it is not awful food. There are many restaurants around town, near enough to walk, but too expensive to use all the time.

    The food greatly improved throughout my time at Georgetown. There are many options for everyone in the dining hall.

    I have eaten once in the cafeteria inside the Student Activities Center and there are quite a few options of chain restaurants such as Subway or Taco Bell. It is a nice space to hang out and relax in between classes, and very student oriented. Tons of student groups will table in the main space handing out flyers, letting students know of great events and opportunities on and off campus.

    There is one dining hall with little selection of mediocre food. It is not big enough to handle the number of students who eat there regularly, and it can often be difficult to find seats. All in all, it is probably a better situation than the grade-E-edible dining hall horrors of our parents generation, but it suffers by comparison with the majority of contemporary universities.

    Although the university only has one cafeteria, Leo J O'Donovan dining hall endearingly referred to as Leo's and jokingly referred to as five-star dining on the waterfront, there are many options there. The staff constantly seeks to improve the student dining experience, with ranging success. The key to Leo's is to come hungry, befriend the staff, and get creative with your meals. If this isn't your cup of tea, the neighborhood itself offers many eateries.

    Georgetown could open another dining hall, since there is only one on campus and it can tend to get crowded during certain times. Also, on certain days they can have the worst food and on others they can have the best food, so you never know what you'll get. A lot of people complain about GU's dining hall, but I think it's decent.

    Georgetown technically doesn't have school-sponsored frats, but there are actually around a dozen frats, co-ed frats, and sororities that frequently host themed parties.

    Essentially non-existent except for a couple of organizations that like to prance themselves as legitimate greek life. They offer some fun parties and host events that are interesting in terms of career building, but I did not personally find it worth the hype.

    Greek life is... not really greek life. Most fraternities are service fraternities. There are no frat/sorority houses.

    The University does not recognize any fraternities or sororities officially, but they do exist and many students are involved in Greek Life.
