    While you will most likely get tired of the food in the dining hall, you will still have other options such as White Bear and Northern on Main

    Unfortunately the food here isn't all that satisfying. It rarely every changes from breakfast, lunch and dinner. Even day by day. It's not exactly what your expecting when you're paying such a hefty bill.

    There is a lot of food, and it available almost all the time. Though it is made in the buffet fashion, so it is sometimes better looking than it is tasting. Bring your own seasonings.

    You have two places to use your meal swipes, the dining hall and white bear. Then you get dining points to use at places like northern on main or the c-store. You have plenty of meal swipes a week, but you will never use all of them. The food is basically the same from day to day. It's not very good. At all. Don't worry about gaining the freshman 15, because you probably won't be eating that much.

    From what I saw, the nearby restaurants were very good. The food court was great. I could very easily get used to it.

    When coming to visit Ohio Northern University, you may think that there is a decent food selection. I will tell you that the food stays the same and it can sometimes be unbearable. On many websites, Ohio Northern University is ranked one of the worst dining halls in the United States. I tend to disagree with the rankings, being able to eat healthy food most of the time. They have begun to change the dining hall slowly by adding nutrition facts to all foods and serving up daily specials, but in my opinion, as long as Sudexo is in charge of the dining, the food will never change for the better

    There are gobs of different sororities and fraternities on campus. And no, recruiting and initiation are not like they show on television. They are all very inviting and welcome those who are interested, with open arms.

    Greek life is an option for anyone interested. It's a great way to meet people that you would otherwise never come in contact with. It's a wonderful way to obtain leadership positions and service opportunities. Greek life doesn't have a negative image on our campus like it does at many other schools. Also, it is a wonderful source of networking. We also have a variety of Greek chapters ranging from social to professional to religious.

    Greek Life is a major part of Ohio Northern University. As the freshman first arrive on campus, many events are set up in order to raise Greek Life awareness. There are social, academic, service, and professional fraternities and sororities. It is important to take some time and look into all of your options, including the benefits of not being involved in Greek life.

    Greek life is offered at the school, but a student is not left out of any activities or parties just because the person is not Greek. Every student is accepted and treated equally.

    Greek life is pretty popular on campus. There are a variety of fraternities and sororitites, so you can find one that meets yours expectations. Beyond social fraternities and sororities, Ohio Northern has a large number of service and academic oriented greek organizations. These groups are more like a high school National Honor Society.

    We have the standard Greek life on campus and we have honors ones for specific majors to join. All the Greeks get along and there's no hazing when you're going through rush.
