    The food is great. There is a huge variety, and UNH is one of the country's top schools for vegetarian/vegan options.

    There are three dining halls throughout the campus that offer fantastic food. There seems to be something new everyday. When the dorm food begins to get sickening by the end of the semester, there are several food stands and restaurants all throughout campus.

    Good ratings from the nation's colleges polls. Pretty good food and lots to choose from. I don't think it's usually anything to write home about, but I have no other university food to compare it to

    UNH offers a number of fraternities and sororities. I joined a sorority for a short time, but it wasn't for me. Howver I have friends who absolutely love it. If it is not your cup of tea, there is plenty else to do and others ways to mingle and meet people.

    Fraternities and Sororities are huge in college. I definitely recommend rushing them to see if they are right for you. Some people think its great, some not so much.

    Greek life is a part of UNH and just like any other campus that offers it, all I can say is that it is what it is. It's a great way to get involved but be sure you're joining it for the right reasons.

    I am not involved in Greek Life but I know there is plenty to get involved in if it's something you want to do.
