    The food bucks are good at Whole Foods. Amazing. There's a long list of restaurants around campus that take NYU dining, and a million more besides that you should try regardless.

    Very easy access to any types of cuisine either through dining halls or restaurants. Come on, it's New York, enough said.

    A lot of variety. Eventually, you will get sick of the food, but that's to be expected. Having a meal plan is super helpful, especially if you spend a good portion of your day at Washington Square, where the majority of classes are located. You also have Dining Dollars, which you can use at Starbucks, and Argo Tea, and other places when dining hall food just won't cut it.

    Yum! Food is delicious here. We have fresh made sushi bar, where they make it right in front of you. Fresh made pizza. Curry options, burger studio, buffets in Hayden and Downstein. And best of all brunch in palladium on Sundays which is an all you can eat of course.

    The dining halls at NYU, especially Palladium, are pretty incredible. They offer a diverse variety of options, including a sushi bar, a great burger place, and the only Chick fil a in New York City. In addition, the POD stores have pretty much any type of late night snacks/room necessities available right inside of the dorms.

    Its NYC! So there is tons of food. If you want to get a meal plan you can and that gives you a decent amoung of options. If you get campus cash, that could also work at some of the surrounding restaurants and grocery stores. Definitely no lack of food, nor variety!

    Some of the dining halls are definitely better than others. But with sushi and Sunday brunch in Palladium, Chick fil a in Weinstein, and the homemade cookies in Hayden, it's hard to complain. Meal plans can also be used at Starbucks and Dunkin Donuts, which is very convenient.

    Greek life is not as prominent at NYU as in other schools, but that doesn't mean it doesn't exist. Many people join fraternities and sororities, although these definitely have a different vibe than at other schools.

    NYU does have a few sororities and fraternities, but if you're looking for the typical greek life college experience, NYU is not the place to get it.

    Practically non-existent, but it's there. Do it if it's what you're into. They provide unity and solidarity in this vast university.

    Greek Life is small here, only about 7 percent of the student body is in Greek Life. There is no Greek Row or anything major however they are a growing presence! Greek Life can be great if you are looking for a community within NYU's scattered campus.

    You want to be apart of a sorority or a fraternity?! This is one of the best colleges to attend. The greek life is lively and helpful with self enrichment.

    Greek life is not a huge part of the university and it is not frowned upon nor encouraged here. It's up to the individual to be a part of a sorority or fraternity. Greek life is respected and respectable here.
