    The glen towers have the best cafeteria. There are also many spots to eat on campus and off campus. Most of the cafeterias are open all the time.

    There are multiple places on campus to eat food. There are also some places of campus where you can use your one card to purchase food. The food is always made to the way to like it. From salads, to pasta to sandwiches, you can get virtually whatever you want.

    Most of the dining halls aren't the best, but the ones that are good are absolutely fantastic. Newell dining hall is the best dining hall. Susquehanna is the best place to eat when you're not sure what you want because it has the most options.

    Many food options are available to students as well. There is Chick fil-a and Bill Bateman's on campus, as well as many cafeteria facilities scattered through out the buildings that provide satisfactory food options at reasonable prices.

    I'll admit, it took some getting used to the food here. I'm used to home cooked meals. However, once you get used to the meal plan you'll love it. There are plenty of choices and variations to eat day by day. Do not feel as if you have to eat in the dining hall every day. I made this mistake my first semester. My taste buds still haven't recovered! All jokes aside, the food here isn't that bad. Some of it is downright delicious. I found myself craving a bit of it during summer. So don't be afraid to try new things. It's always better to go with a friend. Or just ask a neighbor!

    As a part of a fraternity, Tau Kappa Epsilon, I can easily tell this is one of the best decisions I have ever made. Greek Life is vastly underrated at Towson and more people need to become involved.

    There is a wonderful plethora of sororities and fraternities to chose from here. Greek Life does a wonderful job on campus raising money and helping Towson in general.
