    There a lot of dining options here. There are 2 dining halls and I think 3 buildings that house restaurants and stores. While there is a large selection, most of the food isn't that good. It's commonly known that most of the dining hall food goes right through you and the food served at the restaurants isn't that much better. To be honest, even with all the options, eating on campus can get kind of boring. I usually eat most of my meals off campus or I make my food myself. I recommend getting the cheapest meal plan.

    The unlimited meal plan is very nice to have and the dining halls have plenty of food but at some times, especially over the weekend, the choices can be limited.

    Each dining hall offers a variety of options. Very accommodating for dietary restrictions such as gluten and lactose intolerant, vegan and vegetarian.

    We have an extremely large number of different (and pretty good!) places to eat on campus, not to mention the copious amounts of restaurants nearby. No matter what part of campus you're at, there is a place to eat within a 5 minute walk. The fact that our dairy (ice cream included) is made on campus is amazing. And yes, the ice cream is WAY better than average.

    There are so many dining options on campus and there are only more options to come as the campus continues to expand the student center building and other areas. I will admit that eating on campus get boring very quickly though. After you've run the circuit of dining options under your meal plan you will definitely be craving a home cooked meal. However another plus is that being in the heart of Raleigh means that you are never too far away from a plethora of restaurants to choose from if you're looking for a night off from campus dining. You'll never go hungry though! I recommend the campus creamery though, delicious ice cream that was created by the NC State's food and science department!

    The food is tolerable in the dining halls but the same foods are served on the regular basis and also pizza everyday. There are a few chain restaurants on campus such as chick fil a and jason's deli which are much better in taste.

    There are two dining halls that I know about, and they are pretty decent. Always filled with new people to meet!

    There are three buffet style dining halls, and three food court style dining areas. The buffet style include Fountain, Clark and Case. Case is the best out of the three however at dinner it is reserved for athletes only. Fountain and Clark are pretty similar and can be hit or miss. Atrium is a place to go if you need to grab something to eat quickly, it has a variety of choices and healthy options. Talley is brand new and includes many different types of food including pizza, sandwiches, mexican and a diner. The other side of Talley has restaurant quality food from different parts of the world, this is called One Earth. The quality of the food is great, however it is difficult to get enough to eat and drink under the meal plan equivalency.

    There are many options for food on campus. Without a meal plan it can be a little pricey, but you learn to budget what you can afford. After a while the food becomes routine and you want something different, so it's convenient that there are many dining options close to campus.

    I am not apart of Greek Life on campus, but I know a lot of people who are. There are tons of sororities and fraternities, and it seems like almost every girl as a Great Women Go Greek button. It seems very fun and rewarding. If you're into that sort of thing, NCSU has it.

    Greek life at NC State is very big on campus. There are many frats and sororities to join and there are also many parties thrown by these organizations.

    Greek life plays a large part in the college experience of those who endeavor to be a part of it. It is a unique experience and a special bond of friendship that lasts a lifetime.

    Greek life is very prominent when tailgating at football games, but never really anytime else. The Greeks are all very welcoming and open to all types of people and they do do good things around our community.

    Greek Life is not as prominent at NCSU, but there are still plenty of frat parties to attend. NCSU is not very preppy and contains a nice mix of students.

    I am not involved in Greek Life, but some of my friends are and they tell it is great. They really enjoy the diversity of fraternities and sororities here, and there is a place for every one interested in Greek Life. From leadership to engineering, there are plenty of options for any student to get involved in Greek Life. Go Greek!
