    Overall, food options are satisfactory. The four places located in the Student Union have a nice variety of styles (a cafe/coffee shop, Mexican, fast food, and a sandwich shop), and Pizza 51 and Pickleman's (sandwich shop) on Oak St. near the parking garage are high quality while not being too expensive.

    Hit or miss in the caf. Sometimes it's really good, sometimes I don't know what I'm eating. But breakfast is always great. Other dining includes Einstein's Bagels, Baja Fresh, Chic-Fil-A, Sub connections. those are always good.

    The first week of semester, the food is delicious, but it drops considerably after that. They do well on special occasions (Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter dinners). There's always a salad bar, hamburgers and fries, and a pizza bar.

    The school has several options including outside vendors, but from my personal experience I have been pleased but I also was not a regular on -campus eater.

    There is a Fraternity and Sorority available for every type of person who wants to join! A mixture of nationally recognized and ones who are just starting out are available, and talking to any member of them will be a great help for finding out info about them if you're interesting in joining.

    Wonderful! There are several sororities and fraternities on campus, each unique and each wonderful. When I came to UMKC the first thing I did was join a sorority and personally it was the best choice for me. Participating in Greek life gives you the opportunity to become very familiar with the school, community, and future opportunities.

    I did not go Greek, but a few of my friends have. They love it. There are always activities going on for the sororities and the fraternities. Also, Greek Life is another way to meet new people and life-long friends.

    UMKC has a very active Greek life, and there are many sororities and fraternities on campus. I have never been to any meetings, so I do not have very much information about the organizations. However, most Greek life organizations at UMKC are focused on developing the local community, so they are not very stereotypically party party party organizations.

    One thing I was surprise to find, upon coming to UMKC, is the vast involvement with Greek Life. The fraternities and sororities are not nearly as large as they are at bigger universities, but the percentage of students involved in Greek Life is still pretty high.
