    the dining hall is great but you get sick of the food after eating it everyday multiple times a day for months. But it has lots of options and many options for vegetarian or allergies like me.

    The food is good at first but than it gets old. We have the same things everyday and most people only go to a couple of places on campus. I like to go to south orange to eat because I get sick of eating on campus. Plus the food is so expensive, its not worth eating it all the time.

    Food's not bad. Some healthy choices. Could use a bit more variety and less pork (for those of us who prefer chicken and fish).

    The food is very hit and miss. In the dining hall itself there are fewer options than you'd think. Half of the hall are meals prepared for you, which tend to recycle, and the other half is whatever you want to make for yourself such as pasta, wraps, stir fry, or just picking up something small. Also the vegan options are literally a little part with boxed foods. I wouldn't recommend eating here if you are vegan, but there is a salad bar. As well there is a deli. So, there are options, yes. But, it's all about what you're in the mood for. It doesn't taste great, it's edible. My friends and I all agree it isn't bad, but it doesn't taste the best. There's no worries about getting sick from it, but you will get sick of it.

    Cafeteria food isn't all that good and they don't really have that many healthy options except the salad bar, which can get boring.

    I do not have a meal plan but the commuter cafe and overall school has few options for us. At some point you will get sick of Dunkin Donuts and pizza.

    Many are available and must have an actual mission. I believe that they are all required to give back by volunteering and such and must have a purpose. You cannot just party all day and live together.

    Greek life is just like any you would expect. Frats here and there, sororities here and there. If you join Greek life, you'll know everyone else in it.

    There is a small Greek life at Seton Hall. During freshman year, almost every one seems to want to join a sorority or fraternity, but they cost a lot of money and pledging is a lot of work; therefore, the Greek life is present, but if you don't join you won't be alone. There are no sorority houses and the fraternity houses are all off campus.
