    around campus, there are tons of bakeries, fst food places and healthy eating food places. The Pi is famous and you have to get their pizza!!! Gogurt is a frozen yogurt place close to campus and helps you cool off during summer. Also there are tons of ethnic restaurants all over the place, including thai, chinese, japanese, chilean, german, italian, mexican and more. Many places are very affordable.

    The food is awesome! In the main cafeteria, there are so many options. On top of that, in almost every busy building there is a food joint in there with lots of variety. There is also food cartels set up everyday which is great for fast food!

    Pretty good food as far as colleges go. Plus it is located right in Salt Lake CIty, which is one of the best places to eat.

    The food and dining options available at the U are great. They have ethnic foods as well as special menus for diet restrictions such as gluten-free food. The food they offer is also very reasonably priced.

    There is a massive diversity of food opportunities on campus, and not just up at the dorms. There is a large cafeteria in the centrally-located Student Union building, as well as strategically located cafes and snack places around campus. The only drawback is that, being a college campus, it can get a bit expensive. However, if you're willing to walk four blocks off-campus for your food, there are restaurants covering the surrounding area, so you're never very far away from food.

    I don't eat on campus to much, there are plenty of options to eat at. It is expensive in comparison to bringing a lunch or going off campus.

    Greeks at the University of Utah are well-involved in many volunteer projects. They are friendly and supportive, and also know how to have fun.

    I myself didn't participate in the Greek life on campus. I know it exists, and it's pretty small - the houses aren't very prevalent, and the Greek community doesn't affect the campus hardly at all. Nevertheless, it does indeed exist and you can pledge to the various houses.

    It isn't as big as at some schools, but its fairly healthy. Most everybody on the row are friends and that makes parties really fun. Everybody is very nice and smiley and it expands your social circle exponentially.

    DO IT! Going Greek was the best decision I have ever made, it has helped me to become such a great young lady, and it has helped me to excel in academics and leadership experience. I have made so many friends (Greek and non-Greek) because of joining
