    UConn has so many options for food! There are 8 dining halls on campus. Even though five of them close at 7:15pm, three remain open until 10:00pm. UConn also has several cafes around campus and don't forget the Student Union! The Student Union offers a food court with really good food and also has a Dunkin Donuts, Subway, and Panda Express.

    After a while, you will grow tired of the dining halls. The food served in most of the dining halls are horrible on a daily basis. Towers dining hall is probably the only dining hall on campus that is consistent with good food. Avoid Putnam dining hall at all costs, the food there is horrible. South and McMahon are decent, but by no means are they good. Honestly, you will have to get used to the food in UConn, it will not be easy.

    Considering the fact UConn (Storrs) is on a farm, the food is delicious. You have fresh farm food all the time. The cafes stay open later than most other universities I know too, which is a plus. If you're able to get a ride about 10 minutes down the road, there's a TGI Fridays and Outback right down there too.

    Food is awesome at UCONN, there are many different options with respect to dining halls and it is very easy to eat healthy. If you are looking to go out there are many awesome eateries in the Storrs Center Complex which is right on the edge of campus.

    I have no involvement with Greek Life to be honest, I don't necessarily have the time to make it worthwhile.

    Greek life exist but it is not prominent for everyone to see. People only know about what goes on in Greek life if they are involved in Greek life.

    The Greek life on this campus is an amazing way to get involved and help make the school seem smaller.

    Greek life is very important on campus. The fraternity and sororities do a lot of events on campus and really like to get involved with everyone. The dance-a-thon is one of the major events they do to raise money for children.

    There is a lot of greek life, but you have many other options if you don't participate in greek life.

    Greek life is growing rapidly. Husky Village has filled up and as more fraternities and sororities establish themselves on campus, more space is needed to house greek life!
