    The food is great in the dining halls. There are many to choose from. There is always a wide variety to choose from and there are other places you can use your meal points such as a Mexican or Chinese restaurant.

    The food is really delicious for the most part. There's always lots of choices and many different dining halls to choose from. The only bad part is there isn't a whole lot of healthy food options, mostly just a salad bar and fruit.

    Prices of buffet halls are comparable to off-campus buffets. Dining.missouri.edu answers the vast majority of questions regarding CDS: hours, locations, how the tab can be paid, where meal plans apply, etc. CDS always has at least one vegetarian option at any dining location and actively attempts to source at least a portion of ingredients locally.

    There are five different dining halls on campus and all are pretty good. Some are a farther walk than others but let me tell you they are worth it. There is always a variety of food to eat, and if you only have a little time in between classes you can always grab a bite at the student center as well.

    There are four dining halls spread out on campus that have a variety of different things at each one. One thing you worry about when going to college in the dining hall food. It's really not bad. They also have other places for food like Baja Grill that you can use your meal plan for. Or they have food places in the Student center that are awesome.

    The food is good but you oat likely will only got to the places you live near so the food gets old after awhile so stock up some cash for something else. Baja will save you on swipes, but please realize that the Mizzou 22 (lbs) is real and that food along with the buffet style you get from the dining halls will catch up quick.

    The food is really good for dining hall food. It gets pretty boring after a while because a lot of the dining halls serve the same thing every day. Plaza 900 is definitely the best. Also they have really cool dining options like Baja (a texmex joint) and Emporium (somewhat like a grocery store) where you can spend your swipes in non-traditional ways. I also really liked places like the J Cafe and the Student center where you can student charge things like sushi, pasta, and specialty coffees.

    Greek life is definitely present at Mizzou but it by no means dominates the campus. I know plenty of people who participate in Greek Life but it really is only like a quarter of the campus. Those that are in it really enjoy it and recommend to others that they should join.

    I personally am not involved in Greek Life, but my roommate is. From what I hear from her it's a lot of fun. You have a whole other family on campus.

    Very prominent part of this university as you usually see them on the way to your next class period doing some sort of pledge or whatnot. Housing for Greek life can vary (as does with every university) but I do not feel like you would miss much if you were not into that sort of thing. This is simply my opinion, in which I am not a part of any sort of Greek life.

    I'm not actually involved in greek life but it seems like everywhere you look, someone is representing their sorority or fraternity. Mizzou has many options when it comes to Greek Life.

    It's huge on campus. SO many people get involved with Greek life and they love it. With that said, I never got involved with a sorority and never had any problems. If it's not your thing than don't worry, there's plenty else to do.
