    The food is pretty much the same everyday. It is great at first, but after a while it can get kind of tiring to eat the same thing every single day.

    the food on campus is good, but tends to get a little monotonous. make sure to branch out into the city and see what you can find!

    Dining does not have much variety and can often be repetitive or stale. The difference in dining prices are too far apart, and the choices of food between the two are so closely similar that it makes little sense to pay more at the latter. There aren't any 24 hour dining areas within or near the campus, and there is a lack of alternative dining for students that lack meal plan or money.

    Dining is great. There is a buffet style dining hall. Also, there is an ala carte dining hall that sells sandwiches, salads, desserts, and also includes a made to order sub kiosk. There are several coffee shops around campus that serve Starbucks Coffee, bagels, pastries, and grap and go wraps.

    I am apart of Greek Life and love it. I am a member of Sigma Tau Gamma and enjoy planning concerts, fundraisers and community service events!

    I didn't get too much involved in the Greek Life but for those who do it's pretty prominent and they do a lot of work for incoming freshman and students already attending.

    Greek Life is known on campus but doesn't make the campus. They are located off campus and I believe there are only 3 fraternities and 3 sororities.

    The Greeks at Behrend are at the bottom of the food chain. Independents do no respect the Greeks and the Greeks are almost looked down upon because of how easy it is for anyone to gain access to any of their groups. Fraternities and Sororities do have events that are exclusive to only Greeks but these only happen once or twice per semester and would probably be the only perk to going Greek.
