    Dalton gives you the Dalton big five. You will know what it means once you eat there. But we have Starbucks, Chick Fil A, a Grill place, a salad place, frozen yogurt, papa johns, and au bon pain. Subway is across the road and several places deliver and youre in walking distance to other food places as well.

    Radford University has many options for food. There is Dalton Dining Hall, which is your average campus cafeteria that offers new dishes every day and is a buffet style. There is also Wendy's, Papa Johns, Au Bon Pain, Ollo Sushi, Chik Fil' A, Starbucks, Austin Grill, Wild Greens, Pink Berry, and the New River Grill House. The New River Grill House is one of the fancier and slightly healthier options on campus that is located in the basement of Muse Hall. I don't recommend going there every day. Many freshmen like being able to get a steak on campus, but it is the most expensive place to eat on campus. It really takes a toll on your flex dollars.

    The food on campus could be better. It's amazing at first but it gets old very quickly. This is probably the one aspect Radford could focus on improving the most.

    Although there are not that many options, the ones that are on campus do very well. From Chick-fil-a to Papa Johns, the variety is there. The dining hall is sub par but the atmosphere is what makes the halls great.

    Not many very healthy food selections though they do have just a little bit of everything to choose from.

    There are so many options for you to go greek at Radford. We take pride in our greek life and have some of the best leaders on campus affiliated in a sorority or fraternity.

    Only 20% of the campus is Greek, so you don't have to go Greek in order to fit in. I am a member of the Greek life here, and I love the unity and activeness it brings!

    Greek life is pretty big here, for a campus that isn't affiliated with them. You don't have to be perfect to get into a sorority or a fraternity, it's better to just be oneself and go with the flow.

    So I really dont know much about Greek Life but the thing is Greek life is not for everybody and you have to decide if its for you or not.
