    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.

    The dining hall is only 4 minutes away from most of the dorm buildings. Amazing food, with a variety of almost every type of food you can think of.

    The food isn't the greatest but I am also a picky eater. They also have a lot of variety which is really nice.

    The food and dining at the campus is excellent, so much to choose from, anything to Italian, Mexican, some Cuban, Chinese and even traditional American food. Tacos, pizza, Cuban sandwiches, subs, cheese burgers and even orange chicken and rice and even salad bars. Too many choices which is a good thing for the students of UNLV.

    There is a limited amount of restaurants that you may go to that's affordable and tastes good. The Dining Commons at UNLV are not worth the price. Definitely check our restaurants outside of campus, such as Aloha Kitchen or Cafe Rio. Aloha Kitchen is inexpensive and closest thing you will eat to a home-cooked meal. Cafe Rio is just really awesome. TIP: Never eat at the same place three days in a row. I mean, you can, but don't. Why? Let's just say I can't bear the taste of Panda Express anymore.... and Aloha Kitchen is about to join that group, so switch places once in a while.

    It's pretty okay I guess. I don't actually buy much because my home is near the school. UNLV has a lot of food options inside the campus and it's awesome.

    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.

    I'm not in any Fraternity but from what I see is that its there and that the Greek life is there and interacting with classmates or other student of the campus.

    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.

    Pretty decent Greek Life, but compared to other campuses, it isn't that active or dominant. Still, it's there and it is what you make of it.

    Although sororities can't live in houses together due to Nevada law, Greek Life is still very popular on campus. There are several sororities/fraternities to chose from.

    Although I am not a member of Greek Life myself, I know a few people who are. They love it! I have attended Greek Life events which are sometimes open to the public and very interesting.
