Student Responses to Review Topic: Food And Dining

    The food here isn't amazing, but it's not bad either. If you are living on campus, you will be required to get a meal plan. The cafeteria, The Commons, is buffet-style. You get all you can eat and there are vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free options. There are several campus restaurants, as well as a Starbucks, Einstein's, and Subway. There are also two pizza places on campus. Trust me, you won't be left hungry.

    Exquisite dining for people of all ages. Places to grab a quick snack after a long night of studying and even places open early enough to make sure that breakfast is partaken right before an early 8:00am course.

    This all depends on each person. Meal plans are expensive and the freshmen that live on campus have to buy a really big meal plan, which I find unreasonable. Depending on where you go, the food could be either decent, or you may be questioning what you are eating.

    Don't get caught up in the various food selections you have. Make sure to watch your eating but if you get bored with the food on campus there's always a larger variety off campus.

    UAB has many choices when it comes to food and dining. Among all the campus restaurants, there are even food trucks that will accept meal plans that students have a choice of purchasing at UAB. The different choices are all really good and its amazing that there are so many things to choose from.

    Food is pretty good. There aren't that many choices on campus, so the food gets old rather quickly. However, the food is usually always good.

    Food and dining is seriously lacking at UAB. They need to step it up. There are not many options anymore since they are rebuilding the student center.

    Greek Life is smaller at UAB than at other schools. This makes it a lot more personal - it gives students an opportunity to become very close and obtain leadership roles more easily. The sororities and fraternities on campus help each other with their philanthropy events.

    There are several sororities and fraternities on campus, but not nearly as many as bigger schools. However, everyone that I know that is involved in one is very happy. They are very prominent on campus and do a lot of philanthropy and service projects.

    I am apart of Greek Life so I can personally say that is is an amazing experience, and Greek Life at UAB is only becoming better, larger and stronger. It is a small community of but a very tight knit one, which makes it even better. Every single sorority and fraternity have a mixer each month, so you get to meet everyone. We also collaborate for philanthropy events.

    I wouldn't know much about Greek life but I hear that it is not just partying and that UAB's Greek life is more studious than other colleges.
