    The food on campus isn't the greatest, but there are lots of options to choose from. If you're craving a sandwich, or just some Chinese food, there are definitely many varieties of grub to snack on. There is a great burger joint which is about a 5 minute walk from campus called Archie's and they have some of the best homemade burgers that I have ever had. Their jalapeno fries are pretty yummy too. It is also where you will find everyone out and about on a Friday night.

    As far as the food options at the university, students are not overwhelmed with choices, but they certainly are not limited. Each student with a food plan also has wolf bucks which can be used in various food establishments on campus, from Elements, the Overlook, Bytes, and all the places in the Joe. Personally I never got tired of the choices outside the main dining area, the Downunder Café, DC. The DC is a buffet that has multiple stations, such as the grill (burgers/ grilled cheese/ fries) to the deli (all types of bread, meat, and toppings) to the Asian wok area. While the food is definitely not healthy by normal standards, it is better than most schools for sure and the DC makes an effort to offer vegetables and variety. I will say that the fruit is fantastic. Overall a person could potentially eat well if they explored the DC options, and boredom can be avoided by mixing the DC with outside eateries.

    There are many dining options on campus and some places will even deliver to the dorms. Foodbucks comes with meal plans, so you never have to pay out of pocket money when eating anywhere on campus. Even Dominoes Pizza takes Foodbucks.

    Although the university offers many different places to eat, they are too expensive and do not allow the students to buy a filling meal for a decent price. However, I think this is something that many universities in the United States could improve.

    Students living in the dorms are required to eat at a cafeteria on campus called the DC which provides food which students have described as being boring as the year went on, but I have personally eaten there a handful of times and have enjoyed the meals. There are different meal plans varying greatly in price depending on how often a student would like to eat. The DC offers a wide variety of vegetarian and even vegan options. As far as other food options on campus go, there are a variety of fast food options including Starbucks, Keva Juice, Panda Express - the list doesn't end there. A local business, Great Full Gardens, is currently being built within a building on campus, and it offers non vegetarian, vegetarian, and vegan food.

    Although there is a variety offered, sometimes the food in our cafe can get repetitive and tiring. Our cafe doesn't have a lot of gluten-free items which can be an issue for some students. We have our very own Starbucks on campus! We have fast food and a restaurant.

    There are lots of great options to choose from when you are hungry at campus. Theres a little bit of every kind of food the only downfall is the cost.

    The Greek life is very active on this campus. Every week, the Greeks get together and each Greek group promotes their symbol in fun ways like, sign up for this and this, and get a free cupcake! Or the boy Greeks will get together and have a huge barbeque on the front lawn of the university, with free burgers and hot dogs. There are even Greek groups for certain majors, for example, the engineering Greeks.

    Greek life often hold events to raise money for their philanthropy. To them its charity work, to the rest of the student body it means free food, live music, and a fun way to spend our day.

    Terrible. Minimal sororities, and if one has an infraction, they kick them of campus. I know from experience.

    I was in a sorority for a while but decided it wasn't for me. I decided it was a better idea to spend that money on traveling abroad and that's exactly what I did. I went and traveled through central and south America which was one of the best decisions I have ever made.
