    There are 3 dining halls on campus and each one is within a different residence hall. There are many options to choose from everyday including oriental, grill, pizza, salad, home style cooking, and even vegetarian, non-gluten and non-soy options. The staff is incredibly nice and inviting.

    The dining halls are in three of the dorm buildings here on campus and no matter where you want to go they're not far from wherever you are going to stay. The Student Union Building also has a few places to eat. In the dorms that don't have dining halls they have convent stores that are basically like gas station convent store. They're really cool and have everything you could want to eat or snack on.

    The food and dining seemed really good and interest my first year. Eating on my own and with friends every day seemed like such a blast but soon you do realize it's more a drag. The food isn't terrible but it does become repetitive and you soon look for other sources. There are choices throughout the town and they deliver on campus for the most part. There is the Student Union which also gives students a good option if they are looking for something different.

    I'm not going to lie, Truman's food isn't the greatest. It is cafeteria style in all the dorms, but we also have the Mainstreet Market, where you can get burgers, chicken tenders, Blimpies, Pizza Hut, and other goodies. Some of the things cooked, may seem a little questionable, but they always have the salad bar open and many other alternatives. It's not bad, but coming to a home cooked meal every so often is always the best.

    It is typical college food. It is not bad but some people get bored with it.

    Food service and dining halls are spread out on campus. Many dorms have their own dining hall. Food was served at orientation and it is definitely a step up from high school cafeteria food.

    There are 5 panhellenic sororities and over 10 fraternities on campus. There are many opportunities through Greek Life including scholarships, homecoming, Greek Week and special events.

    Greek life is great at Truman. We hold so many events, give back to the community, have a ton of fun but most importantly, we are making the future leaders of our great nation by becoming brothers, sisters and well rounded individuals.

    I pledged last semester and it was the best decision I ever made in life. Lots of sororities and fraternities to become a part of.

    There is a large amount of students who are a part of greek life. There are tons of options for boys and girls and I've heard great things. If Greek life isn't for you that's fine though too, I am not apart of any sorority and don't feel the need to be there is no pressure at Truman to join one.

    Greek Life is awesome! It's a really great way to meet new people and you actually feel like you belong to something. I will warn you though, it is a HUGE commitment. You will be pressed for time and there are many requirements after you rush in order to be activated. It's not all fun and games, but it definitely can be.

    I like that they have social and service sororities. You can do both if you want.

    While Truman is not a huge Greek society it has a good Greek Life. Sorority chapters are around 100 girls and inexpensive. There isn't a house buy out. Organizations get along well with each other.
