    Food here is awful and the staff appears to have had criminal records of some sort by the way they all are very sketchy. Also, they are very rude and not helpful by any means.

    They have recently upgraded and their food has improved immensely from when I first attended. There are many options for all the picky eaters in the world

    Montclair State's food and dining is varied and economically accessible to all students. From the Universities's Rathskeller (main dining facility), to the Red Hawk Diner , Sam's Place (buffet style dining facility), to the Einstein Brothers and Dunkin Doughnuts. The food is delicious and varied to satisfy almost any diet.

    The food on Montclair's campus gets to be extremely boring and unsatisfying. I recommend having a fridge and a microwave in one's dorm just so that you can change it up a bit. The food can be very repetitive and leave you hungry early in the night, considering all of the dinning halls close at 9 p.m., and in the college life, that's early!

    Food is one of my favorite things in life, and there are some decent options on campus. I myself have grown tired of Sam's Place, but I do like the other dining establishments. The diner is pretty good; service is usually slow, but the food is good. There's also an Einstein's Bagel shop and a Starbucks on campus. The Student Center offers a lot of options from Tex-Mex to sandwiches and wraps. We also have a pizzeria on campus. If you don't mind driving, there are plenty of places to eat along Rts. 3 & 46 and Valley Road.

    The food on campus is so so. I just wish I could have more control over what I am eating. I want to see more nutrition facts and know what I'm eating. Then again, maybe it's simply because I'm a nutrition major and I care a LOT about what I'm eating.

    I myself am not a part of Greek life; I have considered it, possibly Pike. Pike is actually the fraternity late night host Jay Leno is a member of. There are roughly 30 fraternities and sororities, and many of them are highly active in the surrounding communities and can increase you span of connections. It does cost members some money to fund his or her organization to ensure there is money for activities and hosting events. A lot of the frats and sororities work together with other Greek life groups and some even branch out to work with non-Greek clubs and organizations.

    I don't find the greek life that interesting at Montclair, because none of the frat houses are on campus.

    Greek life is only about 4% of our population. We are NOT a Go Greek or Go Home type of school, but there are tons of Fraternities and Sororities to join if you choose to do so. They're always holding awesome events and their presence is noticeable, but not in a negative way.

    We have multiple fraternities and sororities that are constantly organizing events and aiming to keep the campus energized. However, I am not a part of an organization so I can't shed more light on the matter.

    Montclair is an open campus for greek life. It has different sororities and fraternities and they are among the most important and largest organizations on campus. They make different events that are open for the whole student community. Don't be afraid to ask around if you are interested on joining a greek org, it is a life changing experience.

    The Greek life is vibrant and very much alive. Greeks can be seen all over campus with their letters, apparel, and insignia. Definitely a good way to make friends and excellent for networking. Hazing is strictly prohibited!
