    There are literally so many restaurants on and around campus you could have Greek, New Mexican, Italian, Chinese, and even Hawaiian all within one school week. Ultimately, you never get bored (though prices range from highly affordable to OMG WHY in about three seconds).

    There are options such as restaurants in the Student Union Building, the on-campus cafeteria (La Posada), and other places that are similar to convenient-stores all throughout campus. Other options include, Chick Fil-A, Starbucks, Einstein's Bagels and more!

    The Student Union Building has a variety of different types of food to offer, but it can be a bit pricey. Very near campus, there are a lot of dining places for better prices.

    La Posada (La Po) doesn't have too much variety for the most part, and I often found myself repeatedly just getting pizza or a burger and fries. It's buffet-style, so you can get however much you want, but be careful as it is very high in calories. Another complaint I've heard from friends here is that they sometimes get sick from eating at La Po. I've never had this issue, but I have a pretty strong stomach.

    Stay away from LaPo...the student union building has a good selection of food. The surrounding area has various restaurants with different selections of food.

    UNM does not have as predominant a Greek life as other schools. It does offer a variety of fraternities and sororities for those who are interested. I find that the laid-back Greek life helps to foster a sense of academia.

    I am not in a frat, but those whom I know are in them seem to enjoy the Greek life very much. I know for a fact that there are multiple fraternities and sororities to join, and those who join form a lifelong bond with their brothers or sisters. Greek life will definitely keep you entertained, that's for sure.
