    There is the Buddy's cafeteria, Chick-fil-A, Quiznos, Flatire Burger, Asian Cusine, and Starbucks. Also there are plenty of dining options across the street from campus.

    Though the general cafeteria can be hit or miss, there are other places on campus where students can use their meal plans, including Starbucks! There is a food court like you would see in a mall, including Chick-Fil-A, Quiznos, sushi, Chinese food, pizza, and a burger corner. Those options are for Flex dollars, which are extra dollars attached to your meal plan. You can choose how many you want. The daily meal plan is for the cafeteria, and for meal trades, which can be redeemed at the grill and a campus convenience store that sells sandwiches. The cafeteria is buffet style, and there is a gluten free cabinet in there, along with a waffle machine. If the main dish is not so appetizing, those are always options. It's a very flexible plan!

    Sorry if this is graffic but only go to Buddy's if you are constipated. Taste good at the time but it is not good for you. The Grill is good and works with flex and meal plan for most stuff.

    I had a meal plan for the first semester and it got me through the majority of it. I picked the second to least expensive one and it worked well for me. Although I do have a kitchen in my dorm where I cooked some!

    The food isn't that bad I actually think it's pretty good and where you eat is really clean and nice.

    I like most of the food options on campus, especially since I have a meal plan, but the Food Court gets kind of pricey and Buddy's is iffy. If you don't want to eat on campus, there are plenty of eating options not far off campus, or if you live in the Commons, you're have your own kitchen, so you can cook for yourself.

Student Responses to Review Topic: Greek Life

    There is Greek life; I'm sure it's great if you like the idea of paying to have friends. They do good volunteer work, so if you like to pay to volunteer that's good too. They always wear matching shirts that cover their shorts so it looks like they aren't wearing any, so if you like the idea of looking like 29 other girls without pants, then Greek is for you!

    There are five sororities and six fraternities on campus. They all have their own unique personalities. Many of our Greeks are leaders on campus, and they wear their letters with pride. Rush happens at the very beginning of the semester so that people can get right in on the Greek experience. Certain sororities and fraternities also do spring rush for those who want to wait.

    It depends on a lot of factors if you will love it or not. A whole heck of a lot of people are involved in greek life so it can be hard to find someone who is not. If you choose the right one with the right people the next however many years can be heavenly. However, if you choose the wrong one, your life will be hell. I chose the right one but got involved with the wrong people, they are one of the reasons I decided to take a year off of school and transfer. Be cautious and watch who you open up to.

    Greek life is the best! Each frat and sorority are so different from each other but we get along pretty well.

    The University is under none to its supportive greek life, as both sectors in the greek life program have social events together on the monthly and welcome anyone to their social groups!
