    The food can be kinda bleh sometimes and gets repetitive after a while since there aren't a ton of choices, but its not bad really.

    Food is average to below average, something that could be fixed with competition. Dining hall has been known to cause food poisoning. Workers can be rude

    Although many people are quick to say it's nothing like home cooking, I wouldn't expect the campus to be able to accommodate food choices for every single student. They try their best to provide different options, including East Asian and hispanic style food, vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, and kosher options. They also try to take inspiration from different cultures in order to provide a more homely experience to the vast array of cultures and ethnicities that inhabit our campus, including greek, indian, and persian food selections. Although it indeed is nothing like a five star restaurant or mom's home cooking, I applaud the food service staff for preparing delicious meals to thousands of students daily.

    There are a lot of options for where and what to eat, as well as some superb meal plans. The Dinning Hall is decent enough most of the time, but occasionally you should avoid it.

    True Grits is UMBC's Dining Hall (meaning buffet style for breakfast, lunch, and dinner). The food there is decent, meaning it may be off some days, but it also may be great! If you don't feeling like eating buffet styled or eating something more centralized, there's always the Commons, the University Center, or the Administration Cafe!

    I'm not in Greek life, by my roommate is and she loves it. It's not as party-oriented as at some schools, and there aren't houses, but they still seem to have great sisterhood (or brotherhood) and have a lot of fun.

    a few fraternities and sororities, nothing special they're pretty open when it comes to recruitment. No frathouses due to county law.

    There is a very lively greek life at UMBC. Many of my friends are part of sororities and fraternities there. Any student can find out more information during the school's Involvement Fest during the beginning of each school semester.

    There is a lot of Greek life around here, but not necessarily of the traditional kind. They're not known for their partying, and they focus a lot on fundraising for charities.
