    Plenty of choices for this picky eater. Also, the dining halls go out of their way to accommodate students; they offer vegetarian options, a wide selection of healthy and junk food, and while the authenticity is sometimes questionable, they put enormous effort into preparing foods from other cultures. The main chefs in the dining halls love student feedback.

    Compared to the numerous dorm food I've tasted in the past, University of Oregon has the best. The food in Global Scholars Hall is my favorite - pasta bowls, rice bowls, sushi, soup, fruit, salad, coffee, etc. There's such a large selection.

    I love the food in Oregon because they seem to be really focused on organic products. There is Panda Express, Subway, and other dining in the center of the campus, but dorm food is also quite tasty!

    Many great places to eat, though it can get pretty crowded. Definitely try Holy Cow. It's awesome.

    The food is pretty good. It's usually hit or miss, though. I really like the breakfasts in Carson.

    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.

    I have no experience with Greek life, but the people I met who are in Greek life, for the most part, seem to love it. While those who are in it love it, Greek life is not necessary to have fun; you can tag along at several frat parties, and personally speaking, I've never felt any pressure to join Greek life. If you're in it, great! If not, don't worry.

    Greek life is fairly prominent, but it's not so prominent that if you aren't in it, you aren't considered a square. Everyone is pretty nice for the most part, and they do a lot for the city and the people of Eugene!

    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.

    I am not part of greek life, but my roommate it. She loves it! If you are thinking about it, I would encourage you to rush.
