    The food is excellent, with many healthy options including vegan, vegetarian, kosher, etc. There are multiple dining options rather than one dining hall at an average school.

    The food here is actually the best on-campus food I have ever had. There is the usual buffet-style options and then there is Mongolian stir fry, chipotle/adobe style Mexican food, cafés, a mini-marketplace and deli style dining venues. There is also custom order, fresh roll sushi, handmade pasta bowls and organic rice bowls. At almost all UO dining venues there are gluten-free, organic and locally grown food.

    In the past few years, the University of Oregon has expanded its on-campus dining to include a full coffeehouse, bakery, and grill. The University offers a selection to suit any appetite, from two dining centers providing all-you-can-eat buffets to the popular Grab 'n' Go Marketplace and its fast food options. Students see the food itself as standard dorm fare, but the variety of options makes it more palatable. You can usually find something on campus that you're not sick of, even if it's not the highest-quality cuisine. There is only one meal plan availableâ??a points-based systemâ??but it comes in three different sizes, depending on your appetite. You can use your points at the main campus eateries and even treat your friends with your meal plan. Occasionally, you may want to indulge in the EMU's food court, which doesn't accept the point system. Too much of this can get really expensive, though. One interesting feature of Oregon's meal plan is that students are encouraged to submit recipes to the dining services director and may even have their food incorporated into the dining hall offerings. Check out the dining section of the housing services website (housing.uoregon.edu/din) for more details.

    Carson and the Scholar's Hall dining venues are great. Some of the food at Hamilton is also good. But it's nothing to write home about.

    There are so many options! I love that there are little cafes and mini-marts scattered throughout the campus. There are many vegetarian options for me and lots of variety.

    The dorm food is probably the best dorm food i've ever had. They offer many healthy options and some products are locally grown. Around the campus, there are a variety of restaurants at a good cost that will satisfy your taste buds.

    I honestly don't know much about this; it's not my thing. I know there are some sororities and fraternities. Their houses look amazing.

    This has to be one of my favorite things about UO is that Greek Life is prevalent but it does not rule to school. I would say about 25% of students are in a sorority of fraternity. I would say more girls are involved and fall formal recruitment is quite a crazy time, but everyone I know in a house is in love with their brothers and sisters. I know plenty of people in Greek Life but it's not like the movies where they don't talk to people if you're not Greek. There is still plenty for the average person to do if you are not it Greek Life and we mix really well.

    Greek Life is thriving at the University of Oregon. Many people have misconceptions of greek life, so here is what greek life at the UO is about: brotherhood/sisterhood, leadership, networking, philanthropy, socializing, and exceptional academic success. Many students join fraternity and sorority life here at the UO to make friends, and the list above is the extra benefits of joining.
