    Same as Dorm Life. It is how you value it that will make it valuable. Food is pretty good everywhere but can get expensive at time.

    Special themed dinners at the residential dining halls each night, but cafeteria food is cafeteria food. Lots of restaurants and fast food places around, too. If you like to cook for yourself from time to time, you can do so at the kitchens in the dorms or the ARC.

    Honestly, I really missed dorm food once I got an apartment. There are about 10 different dining halls to choose from and they all serve different food. The food was always great tasting as well. Plus, the new dining hall in the Ikenberry is beautiful! The only downside is the the menus rotate about every two weeks, so you run out of variety.

    Sometimes the dorm food is ehhh. Sometimes it is good though. The Urbana side of campus has a lot of different options for residence hall dining and some of it is very good. My favorite was brinner (breakfast dinner) at FAR. They have an omelette bar and delicious pastries. The system of using cafe credits was lame though. You would get a certain amount of cafe credits each week that you could use in convenience-like stores, but if you didn't use them all that week you would lose them. I think there should just be a set number of credits that can be used throughout the year. I already paid the money for food so I should be able to use it all. The food scene in Urbana/Champaign is yummy. Green Street has many different options for food and Downtown Champaign has some really good restaurants too.

    In the location that I was placed in it was very good quality food but sometimes you would get sick of the same food over and over. Overall, they would good food when it came to holidays or weekends.

    Food and dining on campus is very clean and fairly diverse. The foods they offer are usually cooked correctly and they try to use the freshest ingredients. If you want something different, go to Illinois Residence Hall's Asian Night on Wednesdays for Asian food! It's absolutely delicious.

    The U of I has food from almost every country. You get to try different food from other cultures and it can be really good! You can also get some great American food as well!

    The food really isn't that bad. There is a lot of variety, even for gluten free and vegan diets!

    Good. Sometimes the food can be greasy/repetitive. Allen Hall has pretty healthy food, so I liked going there. FAR has Soul Food night, which is super good. IKE and PAR have late-night meals, which is nice when you don't have time eat until late at night/want drunk food. Plus, Penn Station and 57 North (which as basically convenient stores in PAR and IKE where you can use your I-Card credits) are great when you don't want to get a meal.

    Very Big on campus. All kinds of frats and sororities that can be joined. U of I takes Greek life seriously.

    U of I has one of the biggest Greek Campuses in the country. Not just socially, though, they also have many academic and club oriented fraternities. I was not personally in one so I cannot comment much about them. It did seem that my friends who were in them enjoyed them thoroughly, but all agreed that they required a lot of time.

    Super, super Greek. We have one of the biggest Greek communities in the nation. But if you're not involved in it (I'm not), you won't feel pressured/like an outsider. My RSOs have basically become my sorority.

    There is a huge presence of Greek Life on campus. And if you think that Greek life would never be your thing (like me!) there are frats and sororities full of the same type of people as you. Your stereotypical frat parties exist everywhere, especially around frat park. There are also smaller frats where you can get to know the people there and make friends.

    Greek life may not be for everyone, but the important thing I learned is that you shouldn't be quick to judge, and you should have an open mind about Greek life. There are 46 fraternities and 23 sororities on campus, every fraternity/sorority is different and so is each individual.

    There is a very large Greek Life on campus but if you don't want to be a part of it there is no pressure to be involved. If you would like to be involved, you will be happy to find the large opportunities provided for you here.
