    You haven't lived until you've had a sandwich at the Runway or a Hot Flyer from Marycrest. The Empo is great for late-night ice cream cravings, too!

    The dining halls are fantastic. The set ups of three of them are very modern and have a variety of food options that are very similar to restaurant food (sometimes better). The workers are really nice and helpful and the service is usually quick.

    I absolutely love VWK, I mean what university has their own Mongolian grill, sushi bar, and southwest grill? The emporium is fantastic for late night food runs since they're open till 1:00am. I have to say, I'm not a fan of Marycrest's food because it's kind of greasy, but if that's what you like, then Marycrest is the place for you! KU is alright depending on the day! I love The Blend, it's the cutest little coffee shop in the basement of the library, and they have a variety of drinks, it's amazing.

    The food is good, but like most places, it gets repetitive.

    The food is like eating in a restaurant every night. There is a lot of variety. In fact, a little too much. I would like to see cafeteria-style dining again where there are limited choices each time. That way you don't get so tired of eating the same things all the time.

    There are several venues to eat that provide healthy and comfort food. They provide options that appeal to multiple diets.

    The food and dining services at the University of Dayton are spectacular. The service is fantastic, as you are greeted with a smile at every cafeteria. However, the food selection can get repetitive, and therefore Brown Street is always a good alternative with your usual restaurants that one finds near a college campus.

    Greek Life is definitely growing on campus, but in no way affects the way that every single UD student feels connected.

    It's not too big at Dayton, but there's still Greek life so you can rush. However, freshmen cannot rush until second semester!

    Greek like doesn't determine what friends you have/social status, but it is available.

    Greek life is fun if you are part of it, but it is not one of those campuses where one needs to be in one to make friends. A small percentage of the students are in a greek organization, but the sense of community at Dayton is so overwhelming that everybody is friends with everybody else.

    Greek Life isn't big, so it's not like you have to be involved to have a life. If you are, it's not a big deal either so it's really what you're motivated to do.

    I'd say approximately 20% of students are involved in Greek life. Sororities are more popular than fraternities. They are a fun thing to be part of , but are not very over whelming on campus.

    The Greek life is not a huge part of campus, but it is there. There are opportunities to join in on a fraternity or sorority.
