    Food is expensive is at the cafeteria. THE FOOD DOES NOT TASTE GOOD AT ALL AND IT IS SO EXPENSIVE IT IS RIDICULOUS. YOU WILL BE EATING RAMEN FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE.Most of the teaches don't really help you and want you to fail to weed people out since there are a lot of people taking this major. IF YOU ARE AN OUT OF STATE STUDENT STAY AWAY

    College campus has some diverse places to eat, but overall it is sort of limited. Although, it is very beneficial for this university to be in the city because there are many places nearby that are yummy!

    Food and drinks are available in the Student Union on campus and there are a lot of fast food/quick meal places within a 12-block radius of the campus. UW-M is located fairly close to downtown Milwaukee so plenty of restaurants/bars to choose from.

    There are a ton of food choices on campus. The cafeteria in Sandburg has many choices alone. Then there's fast food choices in the student union as well as a bar and restaurant in the basement. There is also other restaurants within walking distance.

    Greek life isn't big here because it is illegal to have more than three unrelated people living under one roof. There are fraternities and sororities but they are more like clubs here.

    The Greek life is essentially non-existent and I love that. I went to another school where is was common, and I hated it. If Greek life is for you, this is not the right school for you. This is a pretty rugged, down-to-Earth type of school. Elitists generally not welcome.

    There are a few Greek organizations, but from what I've heard, you should shy away from the social sororities, because they still engage in hazing.

    I do not have too much to testify about the Greek life on campus because I am not aware of it so much but I do know that there is a club for it.
