    The flood is not all that. It's okay. Sometimes it's great other times it's not.

    The food is better than most schools and there are multiple places to eat within the small campus, making a variety of food available for students. If you're vegetarian or are craving meat, their are so many options available. With that in mind, the set up of the cafeterias allow for better ways to make friends and eating out.

    Freshmen have the unlimited swipe meal plan, and $100 cougar dollars for free. There is also a commuters' cafeteria, and the Cougar's Den available for all students. The Cougar's Den is known to be the Panera Bread of Kean.

    On-campus eateries could have better food. The Starbucks at the library is nice but, there are better dining choices outside of the campus, such as Rock'n'Joe at the Union train station.

    There are multiple places to eat on campus such as the cafeteria, University Center (UC) dining hall, Cougars Den, Starbucks, or student store. The food is great at all of them and there are numerous choices for students to choose from. The one I would rank the lowest is the cafeteria and the UC or Cougars Den I would rank the highest. The have numerous choices to choose from and all types of food that tastes very good. The Cougars Den service can be slower then the other places because they cook the food to order.

    Kean has 2 places where students can eat, the res-life cafe, and UC cafe. Food is better at the UC it has more variety, the res-life cafe is buffet style, has meals of the day. Campus also has a convenient store where students can purchase snacks and on-the-go food, you can also find a star bucks on campus.

    There are several different Greeks on campus, the students on campus where their letters with provide and often get together to help raise money and hold event for the student body. With greek life you can expect parties almost every weekend, and non greek students have the opportunity to meet the greeks two times throughout the year during Meet the Greeks.

    The Greeks are very careful when they have mixers. They make sure to have sober sisters and brothers drive everyone to the mixer and back to campus. They make sure you get home safe and enjoyed yourself while at their mixer.
