    Love the dining halls here! There is an option for what ever kind of cuisine you are looking for.

    Bad tasting and bad for you. Pretty much microwaved slop. Another problem with living on campus is being forced to eat this daily. You better learn to love exercising or you'll gain 30 pounds. You will get diarrhea in the first week.

    Definitely not gourmet, but pretty decent food considering they have to mass produce it almost all day. There are 2 separate dining halls, one which is open for breakfast through dinner, and the other which is lunch and dinner (this one is also open on the weekends). The meal plans offer a variety of packages which include dining dollars and money added to your student account which can be used in various shops across the campus, and some in neighboring towns. All the meal plans offer unlimited dining, which means you get in and eat anytime and as many times as your hungry heart desires!

    I've only eaten at the Emporium, so I have nothing to say about the dining halls.

    The food is definitely edible. If you don't like what they are serving, there are always sandwiches and a huge salad bar. You won't go hungry.

    Both Butterfield and Hope offer great food choices, with Hope being the more modern dining hall, offering greater options while Butterfield has the classic cafeteria feel.

    The food and dining at URI is average. The dining rooms can get pretty busy at peak hours.

    There are two main dining hall on campus that serve excellent food from hot cooked meals to sandwiches and even a stir fry line. Outside of the two there are many other places to buy food around campus

    Join Greek Life!! It is truly the best decision I have ever made. It instantly gives you friends to hang with, which is great at a brand new place. I do not know what I would do without Greek Life.

    Greek life is very prominent on campus, the fall and spring are filled with pledging activities. The houses are new and students tend to live there for their sophomore through senior year. There are academic sororities and fraternities offered as well for people who think a regular sorority or frat is too much work.
