    They food is good but after a while you get tired of the same things. Although wednesdays are Buff chicken at York dining hall and that never gets tiring. the local food however gets a 5 star rating, although it isn't cheap OHOP is the best pizza ever.

    The food halls are always open and always buffet style. SO if you have a meal plan and go hungry its your own fault, there is three dinning halls on campus all offering a different variety of food every day. The order all quality of the chow here is about that at any buffet you'd go out to.

    I eat at the Union because you pay for only what you want to buy. Their are many options their and the food is pretty good. Sometimes it's really buisy and has a long wait.

    The food makes you sick. It is by far better than any high school lunch at schools in Maine, but it isn't the best food around.

    There are three dining halls on campus which are all pretty good for campus food. It definitely doesn't beat a home-cooked meal or a restaurant dish, but there is good variety and they like to change things up every day. Sometimes we have special occasion meals like WinterFest, Lobster and Steak night, or Ice Cream Sundae Saturday. And let's not forget BuffChick Wednesday, featuring buffalo chicken wraps that literally cause lines out the door. We also have a few markets, stands, and a large cafe where you use money or dining funds instead of your meal plan. There is also a small pub called the Bear's Den. One downfall is that you are probably not eating your money's worth with the meal plans. The dining halls also do not open until 10am on weekends and don't have much to offer in the non-peak hours.

    There are 3 dining halls on campus. They are all pretty much the same, pretty mediocre but not terrible. York is the best for breakfast because make eggs, omelets, and breakfast sandwiches to order.

    The food choices are pretty good given that it's college dining food. I love the unlimited meal plan so I can go in however many times I want, whether it be dinner, a snack, or dessert! They have a really great selection of food though, ranging from a sandwich station, to soups, to desserts, and two main course options.

    I am not a part of Greek life but it is definitely present here. There are your typical frat parties but there are also service and academic fraternities and sororities as well. My roommate is in a service sorority that sometimes goes around campus writing inspirational messages in chalk.

    Although they get a bad rap, joining a fraternity or sorority is great way to meet people as well as make a brother or sister for life. The greatest decision I could have made was joining Sigma Phi Epsilon: This fraternity will be different.

    I'm not personally part of the Greek Life, however I have a lot of friends who are. From what I've seen, Greek Life does an amazing job at community service activities and are pretty involved in activities around campus and such.
