    The UA has two student union locations, each with different types food options. After eating there for a while, you might get tired of the same things all the time.

    Although the campus is beautiful and offers great academics, the food choice is only so-so. The University of Arizona does not have a cafeteria on its main campus, but does offer a variety of restaurants. They have many healthy options in addition to the BBQ, buffet, and burger joints. The food around campus that is available is wonderful and there are many Tucson-specific restaurants which are out of this world!

    THE UNIVERSITY OF ARIZONA DOES NOT FAIL WHEN IT COMES TO FOOD AND DINING. THE CACTUS GRILL IS WAY TOO GOOD AND PLUS YOU CAN ALMOST MAKE ANYTHING YOU LIKE. DON'T DOUBT THE FOOD AT THE U ITS THE BEST THAT IS AROUND THE AREA.

    Not the best choices in the food court. Still Cat Cash is very convenient and accepted in most places around the University.

    Greek life is great for socializing and networking. They do activities and even do volunteer work. They also help each other out, for example, doing resume-building workshops. You're never lonely.

    Personally I still hadn't join a sorority, but many of my male friends are in a fraternity. Honestly I can see how much they love it and the love they have for all their brothers. All because of greek life, once a person is in they make a new family that involves volunteering and making more new friends. To stay in they always have to have good grades and best of all they have fun with this experience.

    I have met a few frat guys and sorority girls and NO they are not the same type of people. Some of them just have to be for their frat.

    Greek life is probably the coolest part of the student body. You don't have to participate in greek life to have fun, but it certainly helps - a lot.
