    It all depends on where you eat. I'm partial to south quad because of good food and tremendous food selection. Some dining halls have their good and bad days with food. South, east, north and mojo usually are fairly good with respect to their food.

    The food from dining hall in University of Michigan are very healthy and delightful. The services they provide are fast, nice, and thoughtful. There are all different kinds of cuisines, ranging from American, Indian, Asian, Arabic, etc; and they have gluten-free food, which I'm grateful for.

    Dining halls everywhere. Plenty of places to eat if you don't have a meal plan.

    YUM. Nothing, and I mean nothing, is better than umich dining halls. I recommend West Quad and East Quad. Trust me, its like 5 star dining and the best part is you have no limit. I may have gained a couple pounds but I have no regret. If you aren't living in the dorms there is plenty of delicious food on campus also. One of my personal favorites? Quickie Burger.

    There are many options to choose from depending on your location. The architecture and engineering campus is on the north part of campus which is a 15 minute drive to the center of the campus. Food is a bit more limited to the university diner, library shop (which serves hot foods), or coffee shops around campus. The center of campus has a lot more restaurants, most of which are open late. There are chain restaurants like Noodles and Co and Panera Bread, as well as the unique Italian, Asian, Middle Eastern restaurants.

    While I do not have a lot of experience with the University of Michigan's dining halls, I can say that there seems to be a lot of variety. And, if you don't intend to have a meal plan, the dining on campus and in the surrounding area is amazing. In the area surrounding the university, we've got restaurants of varying price ranges and menu selections, and you can rest relatively assured that you're getting good food for the money. A lot of restaurants and all of the dining halls on and around campus have options to suit dietary restrictions.

    Greek Life is alive and well on campus. We have a number of sororities and fraternities available for students to join. But it is important to note that Greek Life doesn't run the campus, and there are plenty of other opportunities for socializing to be found if the Greek isn't for you.

    I am Greek. There are Fraternities and Sororities of all sizes with an array of people. There are ones for business, professional, social, cultural, etc.

    I'm not in Greek Life and it can get really obnoxious. It's a never ending stream of drunken parties, and hearing people talk about them gets annoying. I've gone to a few frat parties and if you've heard the song Selfie that is ONE HUNDRED PERCENT the party culture I've seen, I don't have any desire to go to any next year. The people I know in GL are super into it, though, so if that's your thing you might really enjoy it.

    There are a lot of frats and sororities on campus. Probably 20% of student body is involved. I am not, but I have been to quite a few frat parties and they are usually pretty fun.

    The greek life is very big at Michigan. I'm not part of it myself, but I've heard that greek life fosters a lot of relationships that last a long time and make a large school a smaller place.

    Just because I'm not a part of it doesn't mean I don't like it. As a girl I can get in to pretty much any party I want (that sounds terrible, but its true) and I'm actually really glad I'm not in a sorority.
