    The food diversity is great, though you can see a pattern eventually. This is no problem as there is always the option of a salad and whatever specialty the dining hall you happen to be in is serving.

    The food here is very good and there is a great variety of foods for students with all sorts of wants/special needs. The dining hall takes pride in listening to students by offering comment cards that are regularly answered and posted and take great consideration for any suggestions.

    There's nothing to complain about as far as the dining halls go at SUNY Oswego. There are various options of foods to eat for every meal of the day. There is also an ice cream shop located in one of the dining halls and also a grill in one if you're ever craving a burger, grilled chicken or anything else. Late night is also available which is great for people who can't make it to dinner or who just want to indulge, because late night is usually not to healthy food, but it's food that everyone craves once in a while.

    Provides a good amount of food and always encouraging feedback from students. Lakeside dining hall is the newest and cleanest dining hall. Cooper is wider but disgusting.

    The only issue I have is I wish it was a little healthier. What little healthy options they have, are often not that healthy at all, or are not desirable.

    The food here is awesome!! There are so many different dining options for all time of the day. There is a cafe in the library, everything from pizza to salad to tacos to burgers in the Campus Center, and dining halls on both sides of campus, one of which is a bufet style. M only complaint would be that ommuters hve to pay $9 for meals in the dining halls.

    Greek life is alive at this school so if you want to get involved with a fraternity or sorority then you have every chance to do so. The school is very strict against hazing so while you should always keep an eye out for your own safety, it is nice to know that the school is aware and has no tolerance for such acts.

    As a member of a sorority, I can say a lot about Greek life. Sometimes Greek life gets a bad reputation but at SUNY Oswego, it's not what people expect. Hazing does not happen during the joining of fraternity's/sororities. Oswego makes sure to have programs that exemplify hazing and what kind of things would be considered hazing. Greek life is a big part of SUNY Oswego and joining a fraternity/sorority can be a great decision if you are looking for form new and long lasting friendships.

    I am also involved in greek life. I can honestly say that becoming apart of Alpha Sigma Chi has really been the key to my happiness at Oswego. They are my family away from home. Its nice to have a group of women that are there for you no matter what. Also, we are very involved on campus and with the Oswego community. We host fundraisers and partake in community service.

    Greek life is a big part of campus. You can find a sorority or fraternity that's right for you if that is what you choose to do. However, not all people on campus join in on Greek life. I myself am not part of a sorority but I have many friends that are.
