    Food is good at first, but then you start to get sick of it. Try to not stick to the same thing, and eat different things to keep the variety.

    There are some things that Quinnipiac make very well and other dining options that you should steer clear of.

    On campus, students have two dining options to choose from. The Caf is the main option. The Caf has 5 different lines: Burger line, Pizza (only for lunch), The Kitchen line (serves breakfast in the morning), Sandwich line, Asian line, and the Hot Sandwich line. The Rat has less variety, but is open later than the Caf (p.s.- don't call it the bobcat den, or you will be laughed at. The food isn't bad, it just gets old after a while.

    The food on campus is not bad. The place to go if you are out late is the Bobcat Den, otherwise known as the Rat. This is a central location for all students on the main campus and offers subs, salads, wraps, and smoothies.

    The dining at QU is very good for school food. it is made fresh daily and there are many different options and spots to purchase food. They have different menus every day, although they do not have many different options. The food budget is absolutely terrible though. Even with all of the food QU has, they give you an insufficient budget. You are only allowed 1000$ per semester that people usually run out with by mid-semester. It is impossible to stay on budget when you are eating three meals a day. For instance, one cup size of milk is 3.50$. For a budget of about 13$ a day, these prices are insufficient. Students are always running to the grocery store to stock up on food.

    Food is like most college selections. Nothing tastes bad but is not the healthiest. A lot of the food is expensive. The meal plan is run as a pay-per-item system so you are never limited to a specific amount of meals per day. There is an Au bon pain chain located on campus.

    Ehhhh Chartwells isn't the best food place but they are open to suggestions and they do listen to the student body if you email them with an issue. I've heard of colleges having worse food so at least it's edible! You'll get used to it.

    Greek Life isn't the same here as it is at many other universities. There is no greek housing, and greek life doesn't dominate the school. It is a great way to make friends, but if you aren't into it, you can still fit in at the school just fine.

    greek life makes up 25% of our campus population, and with a zero tolerance policy for hazing it makes greek life on campus a very safe and amazing experience

    I am not currently in Greek life. From what I have heard, it is a great way to meet new people. It is a way to get involved in charities and in community service as well.

    Greek life is on campus, but not how you would think. They are very involved on campus and in the community, but there are no actual houses for greek life, so there are no stereotypical frat parties like in the movies.

    There is a lot of Greek life at Quinnipiac University, but it is unnecessary. For those involved is a great opportunity to do different things and have the option to meet many different people, but the prices are outrageous, and the requirements are unreasonable. It is unnecessary with everything going on that students can be involved in and the friendliness of the community. There is no need to spend countless hours with your Greek family and extremely high prices, also required days and meetings with which you have to purchase specific clothes or outfits. The positive is that everyone in a Greek family personally enjoys themselves, but at the same time they can get a little frustrated with all of the mandatory meetings and requirements.

    Greek life is unlike what you tend to think of greek life. There are no assigned greek housing. The head of campus greek life is actively looking over the different chapters on campus. There are very prominent anti-hazing programs and I have not met one person in greek life that was hazed in any way, shape or form. There are a growing number of chapters on campus for both men and women. All of them hold special events on campus in order to raise money for their national philanthropies. Many of our greek chapters have raised hundreds of thousands of dollars.

    Only like 30% of our student body is in greek life. It's not one of those schools where you NEED to be in a sorority or fraternity to fit in. I'm in Pi Beta Phi, and I only hang out with my sisters every once in a while. It's more of the fact that you are a part of something then anything else. There's also no frat or sorority houses.

    Greek life is a huge thing here. We have so many different sororities and fraternities already and new ones keep coming every year.

    Greek life is amazing for either girls or guys. There are multiple fraternities and sororities and the best part is they make you feel like family even before you join them.
