    The best part about the food is how it brings the campus together. The quality isn't always the best, but you definitely won't go hungry. The dining room gets crowded a lot, but you begin to figure out the best times to eat.

    There's plenty of options! The popular food plan in 10 meals per week, and then you get money to spend at the little cafe and grocery store in the GC, which is like the student union. If you don't want to eat on campus, no worries. There are plenty of restaurants and fast food joints nearby!

    Food is almost always available. You might want to watch out for the laxatives that the Aramark food company may put in their stuff. But I think we were supposed to get a new food provider so it will be better if we did. Honestly there is more bad stuff to say about the food services at OBU than good. But over all I can appreciate a college who feeds their students well. If they have not graduated the meal plan and you don't mind getting a little ripped off, get the 10 meal plan. If you want to get you money's worth in meals, get the 24 meal plan.

    The dining system with 'bison bucks' (I think that's their name), is a little confusing, from an outsider perspective at least.

    The food is readily available but does not taste great as well as giving you some real stomach problems. Sadly it is something you get used to. But OBU is changing its food service this year so we will see how it goes.

    Dining services will not be your favorite aspect of life at OBU, but there are many options available, and you will always eat.

    The food at OBU is not very good. The facilities are clean and the faculty is amazing, but the food simply does not taste the best when eating it day in and day out.

    There are no sororities or fraternities, but there are plenty of social groups and organizations to get involved in.

    We have on Frat that I am apart of. We are a really close bunch of brothers and the pledging process will make some really good memories. The Sororities on campus don't pledge like we do but from what I understand they have a lot of fun. The dues are a little cheaper than most other colleges so be glad for that. We function as Social Clubs because Frat and Sorority carry some negative connotations.

    There is no official Greek life on campus. There are multiple social clubs which are similar to sororities and fraternities but seek to promote christian fellowship and service. Like Greek communities, there is rush week, pledging, bigs and littles, retreats.

    There is Greek life here at OBU but it is not as prevalent as it is bigger universities. They are Christ-centered and really focus on meeting new people and doing service projects and just growing in the Lord.

    Greek life has started to grow. Yet, the groups are not the typical sororities and fraternities. These groups are more service lead social organizations that ban together to help the community.

    The different Social Clubs are very dedicated to seeing you become part of their organization and provide clean and fun pledge activities.
