    If you're looking for a scoop of ice-cream or a nice roast beef dinner, you're just a swipe away. From 7am to 1:30am, there are many options to choose from that would satisfy your cravings. The university offers a market packed with your everyday needs, Einstein's bagel for your breakfast meal, and a deli for those who want to watch their weight.

    Its horrible at first, but you get used to commons really easily. GSU is always worth the walk. Hawks nest is actually the dirtiest place to eat, but sometimes it doesn't even matter.

    The food is fine except on weekends when the only good things are pizza and burgers and hot dogs (which gets old) but trust me it's nothing to write home about and many nights I'd prefer a TV dinner out of the microwave.

    I hear they're re-doing commons? The quality of the food is sometimes questionable, and people avoid commons because they usually have to hit the restrooms 20 minutes later. The Hawk's Nest is alright, but the choices of food never change, and the service is SO SLOW. On top of that, they always mess up. Gengras is the best dining option for sure, but it's closed on weekends.

    There are many options like Commons, Extreme Pita, Einsteins (the favorite), Hawk's Nest, Konover... etc. It can be very unhealthy though.

    There are so many options here from the main Commons cafeteria, to Gengrass Student Union, to Konover Market; each place is unique and offers a wide variety of delicious choices.

    The food can be a lot better. You will get tired of the food on campus. You will see yourself ordering lots of food that is not on campus.

    Greek life is very strong on the University of Hartford campus. There are so many choices of fraternities and sororities to choose from that would love to invite another member into their organization. It is a pleasure to be apart of a group of wonderful people and I would urge you to look into them when you arrive.

    Greek life is pretty much a joke. DG and SK are the more elite sororities, but its all about who you know/ how hard you party. SDT and AZD are the middle, then there's DZ and PM, there the lowest.

    A very friendly community. Greek unity is very strong here, people have close friends from other chapters in every single chapter. Chapters are very small, the largest being about 55 members, so everyone really gets to know one another, and chapters differ in their personalities and interests, rather than the stereotype of fitting the look. Thats a pretty cool thing about the Greek community here.

    We have over 10 fraternities and sororities on campus (that I know of). Its very popular on our campus and I know so many people who love it.

    Smaller than most schools, but it's growing. It's a lot of fun, there is always something to do, and you meet a ton of people through it.
