    From what I've seen the food doesn't look that bad. There are plenty of local restaurants around the immediate area and a Taco Bell, Starbucks and several other food choices on campus.

    On-campus food and dining facilities are of decent quality but lacks variety. The off-campus places to eat are great and are of wide variety. Portuguese, Brazilian, Italian, and Spanish are some of the ethnic foods that can be found locally.

    GDS is hit or miss; sometimes they have great food, but too often they are out of condiments, drinks, and utensils.

    Not many places to eat. The Gourmet Dining Service is great at first and as time passes on, it loses its touch. Other places in campus center have better food. Other restaurants and cafes around campus, not too far away.

    Food is provided in the campus center. There are many delicious meals. Students and faculty can also get food at Tiernan. This food is mostly snack food and is distributed by chemistry majors. There are also vending machines full of snacks and beverages almost everywhere you turn.

    There are several Greek organizations on campus. The Greeks have a positive impact on the campus sponsoring safety events, raising awareness for causes and raising funds for them as well. There is a significant Greek presence on campus and a new housing facility for the Greeks will be opened fall 2013.

    The Greek life is alright at NJIT, but certainly not as exciting or inviting as in other schools. The frats are all located along one street, commonly referred to as frat road. However, crimes, robberies, and assaults are a common re occurrence along the houses on the street. However, NJIT is in the process of developing a new safe frat village alongside the campus which would certainly seem like an attractive option for the frats and a safer option for party-goers.

    There is a new Greek center being built in what used to be a parking lot. Fraternity Row is where most of the fraternity houses reside. They hold lots of events and like to include non-Greek students.
