  • I love living in the high rises. Everyone leaves their doors open when we're here and I've met so many new people that way. All the RA's are really fun…

    There are some decent food choices on the second floor of the union including, Chick-fil-a and Einstein Brothers Bagels. There is a Starbucks located in the library. The Bearcat Commons can get really old really fast, and sometimes the food is not the best. It's also kind of hard to find healthy choices of food on campus.

    This is the only draw back that I have. We have a new dining system on campus. Downstairs of the Student Union is an all-you-care-to-eat buffet, but the portion sizes are small and if you are in a rush between classes, it isn't very useful.

    The campus has a new dining hall in the Student Union, containing Papa Johns, Chik-fil-a, Einstein Bros. Bagels, and many other restaurants to satisfy anyone's palate. There are many flavors to choose from including japanese style cuisine, tex mex, italian, and homestyle cooking. There are stores in the food area of the Union (milk and produce), community building of the Apartments (anything for apartment dwellers), and a grocery store in the station. The town itself has many options from fast food to sitdown meals and one of the best mexican restaurants I have ever eaten at, La Bonita.

    Food isn't great. Same thing everyday. Portions are ridiculously small. Chick-Fil-A and other restaurants on campus, but you have to pay to eat there.

    FOOD! I love to eat & NWMSU has some great food. With the new renovations they are doing to the campus dining this year. I think the food will be even better than before. From Noodles to Quiznos to Grilled Works, the food will be a lot better.

    The campus is switching to a new dining plan in the 2013 Fall semester. According to the new plan there will be many great places to eat. There is also a small store that you can buy snack food and other supplies (trash bags, cleaning supplies) and is open 24hours. You can also use your meal card on the vending machines all over campus for a quick snack.

    I can't really speak much on Greek life, but I do know that they usually are apart of the many big events that go on around campus. There are a good amount to choose from. Greek and non-Greek relations are decent but I think they could be better.

    The Greek life is fantastic. The sororities and fraternities try to stay close to each other and connected so that everyone could get the great experience and unity of Greek life.

    Greek Life on campus is amazing. There are many different social and honorary fraternities and sororities. The different fraternities and sororities work together and lift each other up and gives all students involved a sense of belonging.
