    The food at the dining hall is pretty good. The have made to order omelets which are fantastic and the food for lunch and dinner is alright. If you don't like what they have, you have meal exchange which you can use at Subway, Jump - Asian food, or Noble Romans - pizza mostly.

    The food is very low grade here. You'll pay $9 a meal for about $3-quality food. The cafeteria is not very clean and Aramark does their best to cut every corner possible to maximize profits. They restrict the times you can use your meals like crazy, and you basically can't get food on the weekends at all without spending your own money, until you get access to one of the later meal plans, which are arbitrarily restricted to upper classmen���¢��������and then you can only use the fake-money on weekends, and if you run out you just have to pay with your own money even if you still have meals left over.

    Not a lot of on campus choices. There's pizza, subs and coffee if you don't like the cafeteria food. However, most restaurantes are about ten minutes by car. Most weekends, people here find themselves going to Steak'nShake at 2am, just to get a half-priced milkshake. Oh yeah, and take the seven by seven challenge.

    Subway, Pizza, Asain Express or cafeteria. All other food has to be reached by car off campus.

    We have very limited options for on campus dining, but that is to be expected from a school our size. The main dining hall isn't anything special. We also have a campus Noble Roman's and Subway. Once you are past freshman year the meal plans are pretty flexible.

    There is good food on campus, but if you want to eat something like Chinese, you'd have to go into town.

    The food is nothing to brag about but it's on regular standards. If it's not for you there are other choices on campus and there is always off campus dining.

    The ARA has a lot of variety. I really like getting stackers, a hamburger and chicken sandwich on the same bun. But everything just tastes so bland after a while. I try to eat there as little as possible.

    Okay, the cafeteria food is not the best, however, there are several great meal exchange options (Subway). More importantly, there is always free food at campus cookouts which seem to happen at least every other night and everyone is welcome.

    The fraternities are alright. There's only one I like, because it's the tiny one for weirdos that wouldn't otherwise be in a fraternity.

    Three sororities and several fraternities are stationed here. However, that doesn't mean you are excluded by those who are part of them. It merely gives them another title. Most all Greek life here is open to the rest of campus, excluding a few group-specific events.

    While our Greek life may not be as big or as prominent as other schools, it does exist. Rose is home to 3 sororities and 8 fraternities. A large percentage of the student body is involved in Greek life.

    Greek life is great. But do not get the wrong impression. It is not Animal House, and we do not throw crazy parties. Instead, we form bonds of brotherhood while bettering our campus and the surrounding community. I myself am a part of the Sigma Nu fraternity, and we have engaged in countless community service projects to raise money and help out those in need, like Bikes for Tykes and Polar Plunge. It is definitely a great experience.

    Greek life is enjoyed by nearly 40% of Rose-Hulman students. It's a great way to connect with people of similar interests and values.

    Greek life is awesome. If you're inclined to go greek, go for it! If it's really not your scene, who cares?? Meet the people anyway - chances are 1/2 your friends will be Greek anyway.

    There are 8 fraternities and 3 sororities on campus. Greek life is different here then it is at larger schools, and a large amount of students are involved in Greek life. It is a great way to meet new people, get involved on campus, and really add to your overall college experience.

    Greek Life isn't what you'd find at a state school, especially for girls. It is worthwhile but only if you're into it.
