    The food and dinning is pretty much adaptable. Just try and mix it up where you eat because you can become tired eating at the same place everyday.

    The food isn't too bad, but come November, it gets old as it does at every college. Kriner is called the finer diner and I believe that's true, but it's a hike across campus if you don't live in Presidents Hall. Also, this is kind of gross, but my friends and I agree that right after you eat anywhere on campus, you need to find a bathroom right away.

    There is a wide variety of food choices. Whatever you are in the mood for I can guarantee you would be able to find it at one the dining locations.

    The food's alright. There are two dining halls placed on either sides of campus, and in the CUB building in the center of the campus you can get some food and either eat there or take it with you. Good for students on the run, because it's open later than the dining halls.

    With a growing campus, only having two dining halls is the major bottleneck at Shippensburg University. Take this into consideration when budgeting your semester.

    There are several places on campus that offer nice cuisine for students with every taste preference. The meals are affordable and offer buffet-style dining.

    The food at Shippensburg is great which is a large part of choosing a university. You don't want to go to a place that has disgusting food. If I had anything to say it would be that I wish we had more food choices as far as places to eat.

    Any thing you could ask for is freshly prepared to your liking. The have specials and salad bars, grill, fruit bar, desert bar, and the space in the dinning hall features flat screens so you will never miss your shows and or sports events while you get a good meal.

    Greek Life is present, but not always in your face. People wear their letters and they have parties, but other than that, it's not too bad. You're not weird if you're not Greek.

    I would estimate that a good 50-60% of campus is in some type of Greek life.

    As I'm not a member of Greek life I hear it is a very positive experience for those who partake in it. It's a great way to meet great friends and give to a lot of great causes.

    Sororities are amazing on campus and they star in many of the campus events. They host dance competitions, concerts and grab food and prize events. We love our Greek Life!

    Although I am not personally involved with Greek Life, I know a lot of students who are, and they all seem to have a positive experience with it.

    The greek life at Shippensburg is awesome! I joined a sorority this year, and i've became so much closer to all the other people in greek life. Sorority and Fraternities are ALWAYS willing to help you out if you ever need anything.

    I'm not a member, but I know there are MANY fraternities and sororities on campus. They do a lot and get their members involved around campus. If there is any in particular you're looking for, Ship probably has it.
