    Their cafe looks amazing and the view from inside is very nice. Can't wait till I can be one of the students sitting in there enjoying their food.

    The dining halls mix it up and have lots of choices, plus a to go option. Besides that there are so many other places to eat nearby and on campus

    The staff is great,but the food is dreadful. There aren't enough eating options on campus, and everything is terribly overpriced. Especially the mandatory meal plan.

    Having eaten at some on-campus restaurants during my visits to the U, I can say that the quality of the food and the diversity of food options (and the spiciness of the particularly spicy foods) will be things that you'd enjoy getting used to.

    I've seen better dining hall food some other colleges. Not many healthy options at the dining hall. However, there is a food court, restaurants, and a convenience store on campus, and there are restaurants off campus that are easy to get to.

    The dining halls on campus are run by Chartwells food service. There are occasional days where the food is pretty good, but mostly the food is mediocre at best. Besides the dinners that vary each day, there are a couple of stable options to choose from: stir-fry line, a sandwich bar, and a burger bar. For the price of the meal plan, most students do not feel like they get their money's worth. Furthermore, you are required to have a meal plan if you live on campus.

    Some days the food in the dining hall is great and some days its just alright. There are a good amount of options and sometimes they have different themes which is kind of cool. Other than the dining hall, there are a good amount of food options on campus. The rathskeller, which is unique to UM, has good options and it isn't pricey. There's also Lime, Wendy's, Panda Express, and much more. Most of the places that are in close proximity to the school deliver and some even offer discounts for students. There are also plenty of places that are walking distance or a short drive away from campus.

    UM isn't a Greek or Die school. Being involved in greek life is an experience that is available and many enjoy but it isn't a necessity to prosper at UM.

    There is a lot to do with Greek Life. Traditional sororities and fraternities as well and smaller multicultural ones and business related ones.

    I was a little disappointed to find that sororities could not rush until the spring since I was interested in Greek life. However, the university offers plenty of fraternities and sororities on campus, including social or service.

    In my opinion, the school isn't very big on greek life as there are clubs all around the city yet there are tons of them and the bonds you share will last a life time.
