    The foods okay but expensive to commuters. Most people say it's not a home cooked meal but it'll get you through till break.

    I know nothing about on-campus dining, but the food off-campus is really great! Campus is right by a big shopping area, and there are tons of options.

    The food is super expensive, especially for a commuter and it isn't really all that good either. Can't even finish the meals I get.

    I will start off by saying yes that if it is your first year there will be a likely chance that weight gain is possible because for one you don't exactly know how the food provided is cooked and or you don't know when to eat because of the overwhelming feeling of stress that takes over your body due to classwork. However, if you just take the time to plan out your day and daily food intake you should be fine followed by some aerobic or anaerobic exercises. There are times where you could be eating just because your neighbor is eating or everyone around you is eating; everyone has a different time of eating, whereas others eat more or less than others, it is perfectly normal/

    Depending on what Meal Plan you are on, I would say that eating at Tully's everyday for breakfast, lunch, and dinner is worth it. Tully's food is very good and I would recommend that to everyone that is starting at Penn State Berks this year or in the Future.

    The food source is Tullys. Tullys ranges from salads, burgers, pasta, sandwiches etc. it is delicious and almost everyone eats from there. Especially with a meal plan you get a 65% discount off your food.

    There are few Greek life clubs. University Park has more of that than the berks campus, but there some. If the Greek life is important to you then by all means please create one, the more activities, events, and clubs available the better life is for you.

    There is no greek life because this is a branch campus. They have greek life at Penn State's Main campus if you choose to pledge.
