    The food choices in the food court are pretty good. I get a smoothie from Jamba Juice every Friday as a treat for completing the week with good grades. However, I think there could be better restaurant choices, perhaps a few that are a bit healthier and not filled with so much sodium. I would also recommend eating in the library instead of the student union because I like a quieter environment and it isn't as crowded in the library.

    The dining commons or DC has a semi decent selection, but it gets old really fast. and any unused meals area definitely not worth what you trade for at the end of the week....it's pathetic.

    Between the Dining Commons and the Student Union, youll never go hungry on campus. They are open late/early for whichever schedule you have that year. And there is also a bunch of small shops located all over campus for your convenience such as Subway, Einsteins Bagels and the POD campus store!

    The food on campus is very good they have several fast food restaurants that are very popular like Panda Express, Taco Bell and several others. It is very convenient especially when you don't want to go far to get food.

    There are an abundance of place to grab a bite to eat both on and off campus. The school is located on a busy intersection and the area has a variety of fast food, fine dining, and restaurants to enjoy. On campus dining is affordable, accessible, and has many different places to mix up your diet everyday. There are food trucks everywhere on campus during the day, and at night the streets are full of eateries.

    Exceptional and at a reasonable price. My tip is to go outside of campus to the nearby food places because they offer student discounts!

    Not a great deal of options on Campus but a five minute drive to the strip will change all of that with every different kind of food anyone can think of.

    It's not all THAT great, but it's decent. It's junky, but tasty. From the commons to the Student Union, where the fast-food places are, it's decent. AWFUL if you want some healthier choices and to cook your own meals to save money. Food and dining can eat up your expenses really fast.

    Greek life is not a big deal at UNLV. You see many members of different sororities and fraternities fund raising, getting students involved in various activities, and a ton of recruitment. Unless you are a part of any house, the Greek Life is housed in the homes of the members. This experience calls for a lot of free time and effort and the members are always friendly and helpful.

    I am in a sorority and it is one of the best decisions I have made since I came to UNLV. I would suggest it to everyone but especially out of state students.

    Although there are no houses for the Fraternities and sororities, Greek Life is very strong here. Their members are very outgoing and it's definitely a good outlet for those interested in leadership.

    There are frats and sororities representing every possible nationality and religion at UNLV. Only a few of them such as TKE have houses near campus however. If you want to join they have greek weeks at the start of every semester but if you're hesitant to commit you can simply attend some of the parties they put together so you can see if going greek would be a good fit.
