    Campus dining is very good at OU. For students living in the dorms, the cafeteria offers many different food options. It is a very large and comfortable space to spend time with friends in. For times you want to get away from campus dining for a while there is Campus Corner. This street offers great places to eat and shop and is located right across from campus.

    OU has great convenient dining options. There is a restaurant or convenience store in every residence hall tower, this is great for those late night study breaks and make it easy to be lazy! We also have an awesome Cafeteria. It even has the world's only all-you-can-eat Chik-fila! Other than this we have another cafeteria with various options and a food court in the Union.

    Utilize the Caf. Many students think that they don't have the time, or get tired of the food, but try to visualize life without it. Real life is cooking, or the expense of eating out. So use the cafeteria any time you can.. Just do it!!!!

    I am always impressed with all of the options you get on your meal plan here! There are so many restaurants and so many places to use meal exchanges that you won't ever get sick of eating here. If you do get sick of campus food, Norman has a TON of great restaurants around the town.

    The food here is AWESOME! Especially at what us Sooners like to call the Caf its the main cafeteria thats by all of the dorms and it has unlimited food and all types of food from Greek, Mexican, Chinese, Italian, and my favorite- unlimited Chik-Fil-A! Theres also awesome options at the Student Union! and of course who can forget Campus Corner? Which is an entire block next to campus with SO many options of food, restaurants, bars, stores, etc.

    The food is great. The meal plan works best at the cafeteria, where you get unlimited food for one meal exchange. There is a lot of variety in the cafeteria, which includes pizza, frozen yogurt and anything in-between.

    The selection and taste of the food is to die for! It isn't healthy enough though... I always gain weight even if I eat like a bird at OU and work out. I can eat like a pig at home and still lose weight.

    OU has one of the strongest Greek communities in the nation! About 30% of OU students are affiliated with a Greek organization. These organizations offer great opportunities to network, meet new people, and create life-long friendships! I highly recommend Greek life if you are coming from a smaller school or don't know many people going to OU because it makes the transition much easier.

    An awesome experience. Its not for everyone, but if it is, it will allow you to find a community of brotherhood, or sisterhood which will last a lifetime. Its also a way of making great contacts. Alumni of Greek are an awesome way of life after college.

    Greek Life is a huge part of the campus. I am involved with Greek Life and I am so happy that I chose to be a part of it! It helps make this huge university not seem all the big!

    I am currently pledging and I wouldn't change anything. Greek life is a great way to get involved and give back to the community. There are so many Greek organizations, so many to choose from. Choose where you feel at home.

    Greek life is definitely a HUGE part of this school, but with this comes awesome parties. On the downside though, it also comes with a lot of no pocket khaki shorts, sperry's, leggings, and extra extra large t-shirts walking around campus.

    Way too much emphasis on the Greek life in the social pyramid. Not too much drinking underage - OU isn't a terrible party school.

    Although I'm not part of Greek life, in the beginning of fall semester, many of its members are very active in recruiting. Throughout the school year, many activities they do are being promoted and members are also very active.
