    The University just finished construction in the dinning area. The dining is located in the Muenster University Center which is also a great place to hang out and do school assignments.

    The food and dining was actually upgraded starting this spring. The vegetarian options are limited but the stores are very convenient and close.

    The food is okay. The variety was better before they moved the commons, but now there is other options besides just the commons and the market place.

    The food can get kind of boring due to lack of change much but it is very good and there are many restaurants around to change it up if you like and you also have many options on campus if you go to a different facility called the MUC, which is getting a Chick-fil-A and Q'doba and a Cherry Berry soon to come.

    The food is not bad. I enjoy the MUC food a lot better than the commons, but the commons tries from time to time.

    There are limited sorority options here, while there are plentiful fraternity options. However, almost anyone who wants to join Greek life seems to find the right house for them. I know I did.

    Greek Life is a big deal here. However, it is not true that you will be a 'nobody' if you are not in Greek Life. I myself am not a member of any Greek house, but I have numerous friends from most houses and am just as involved as I want to be, just like the freedom of involvement that everyone has.

    USD is known for their Greek Life. They are very involved with the school and help out where ever they can! Being in a sorority or fraternity really helps you meet so many new people and being in one really helps with grades too because they create such a high standard otherwise you can not join if you do not make grades!
