    During one of my campus tours I decided to eat at one of the dining halls (not sure what it is called) and there was a wide range of options to choose from! Anywhere from chinese to pizza to paninis!!

    The food is amazing here! There's a buffet type place and then there's a building with different food places like Chinese, pizza, salads, burgers, and wraps.

    Although the food is not your moms home cooked meals, the different places to eat on and off campus provide a large variety of options of food all of very good quality.

    The food is good. There are a lot of options between the 2 separate dining halls, 63's and Linda McMahon's. 63's is a dining hall that is more buffet-styled and has many options, including vegan options. Linda McMahon's commons, also referred to as Linda's, is more fast-food oriented, where you come, order, and then can leave or stay. They have choices, from burgers, paninis, salads, pizza, Chinese, everything! The food isn't always the best, but that's the fun part of college. My friends and I like to cook for ourselves from time to time. It teaches to be self-dependent and lets us treat ourselves for whenever we want to take a break from college dining.

    Sacred Heart University has many places to eat on campus, as well as many places off campus where you can use your student ID! The student ID can also work as a debit card at many locations all around town. On campus, however, the university is constantly listening to the suggestions given by the students in order to make the food better and more of what the students want.

    There are two main dining facilities on campus: 63's and Linda McMahon Commons. There is also a sandwich shop and an ice cream store.

    All the food on campus is great though it can get pricey if you don't keep track of your dining dollars and swipes!

    The food and dining at Sacred Heart is pretty good compared to most colleges. They have a wide variety of food to offer and it is very easy to access for the students from their dorms. They have 2 dining halls which enable the students to have a choice between what they would like to eat.

    I didn't join Greek Life, but the sense of sisterhood and brotherhood is strong on campus.

    Greek life is a really big part of Sacred Heart, we have a variety of both nationally recognized and local fraternities and sororities on campus and almost everyone is involved!

    Greek life is awesome. Currently it is rapidly expanding because of the growing popularity. There are currently 6 sororities on campus and two more coming in the spring and four frats on campus, but there are rumors that there are more to come. Frats and Sororities are not allowed to have houses, but this is not always a bad thing because it means more parties! The greek life community is also very united and has a blast!

    We do offer Greek life at SHU, though there are no separate living facilities for those involved in it. There are a number of frats and sororities that each get highly involved in the school and community. There is also a strict no hazing policy.

    Greek Life is one of the best things about campus. It is definitely the best decision I made freshman year to go Greek. Greek Life on campus is very close, and not only is there a close relationship within sororities and fraternities, but among all of Greek Life. I highly recommend Greek Life for anyone. It's a great way to feel at home on campus and make many friends.
