    A meal plan is required for all first- and second-year students living on-campus. Although this is a good idea in theory, there is a single price for the three choices of meal plan, which is not very helpful if a student wants to cook for themselves more often or just eats in Bruff much less often than provided by the meal plan. Not to mention, the food in Bruff is not completely up-to-par.

    The food at the cafeteria, Bruff is pretty average. You may like it at first but you grow to hate it. There is also a food court are with places like Panda Express, Byblos, Baja Fresh, sushi, bagels, etc. You get credited a certain amount of money called WaveBucks to spend there per semester from your meal plan. There is also a similar system called NOLABucks which can be used at participating restaurants off campus. The university next door, Loyola, has a better cafeteria with better quality food and selection. You can use your swipes for the cafeteria at Bruff at the Loyola cafeteria or Luff as well--definitely try it.

    This is hard, because on campus food is okay, while off campus food is unreal. I'd average 3 and 5 stars for 4.

    Could be better, could be a lot worse. They do incorporate a lot of traditional New Orleans fare which is fantastic, and they make an effort to provide for students that are lactose intolerant, vegan, or have a gluten allergy.

    Tulane has three or four different places for food. There the LBC, which has mainly fast food places. Within the LBC there is a dinner in the basement called City Dinner which is open later in the day. There is Bruff Commons which is a major dinning hall for students who stay on campus, which is always open and serves just about everything in an all you can eat buffet. And then theres the PJ's coffee places that are spread all throughout campus.

    The food plans are great. you can divide them up to the way you eat. I am a vegetarian and have found there is a lot of options for me. There is always something going on if you are looking to eat outside of your plan.

    Bruff is the only dining hall but there is a food court in the LBC which has restaurants like Panda Express, Einstein's Bagels, Baja Fresh, a salad place, a sushi place, a smoothie place, and so many other things. Bruff sometimes get's repetitive in some of the food they serve but they do have a variety of options. They have a salad bar, a sandwich bar, a cereal bar, a pasta bar, and many other things.

    Bruff definitely struggles to create good food. Sometimes it can be just plain sloppy. They go through cycles because on some days all of the food will be good, but then the next day you cannot find anything to eat.

    Bruff is the only dining hall. It gets old. The quality of the food is sub-par, and there is not much variety. No sophomores eat at Bruff. The LBC (student union) has decent food, but not many options. There is not enough on-campus dining options, and grocery shopping, in addition to board costs becomes quite expensive.

    Greek life is becoming a large part of the campus. At least half of the students rush in January.

    Hazing is found in EVERY fraternity, and many sororities. I would not recommend Tulane Greek Life. It is not centered around what Greek Life is supposed to be focussed on- very superficial.

    Greek life is definitely present, but it's not overpowering. What's also nice is that pledging doesn't start until the spring, so you have all of fall to make friends outside of the sorority.
