Student Responses to Review Topic: Food And Dining

    Blackhawk commons provides something for everyone. Unfortunately, Reeve Union and Scotty's are the only places available to eat on the weekends, as Blackhawk is closed. Their food is less than average and it takes about 30 minutes for your order to be completed when ordering from B&G Grill in Reeve. Kind of frustrating when you are in a hurry and end up receiving less than average food.

    The food at UWO is great compared to other schools! There's variety in the two major dining buildings and a few other places students can go to get other food when they feel like it. Overall, they provide many options and allow students to pick whichever they feel at the moment, but nothing beats a home cooked meal!

    You can get sick of Blackhawk food pretty quick if you aren't creative with your food. I suggest thinking outside of the box and visiting several different stations to make a complete meal.

    There are lots of dinning options. There is usually three main places where I get my food and all of them go with my meal plan and of course off to the side of campus there are small franchises such as subway, papa johns, many more.

    Mostly okay-dinners are mainly good but grill not good. There is a salad bar in Reeve Union and some Mi-Tazas have salads and wraps. Several good restaurants are close by however.

    Off-campus has a great veriety of food to pick up or order out. From 4+ pizza, 3 sub, wings bbq and gyros options are not short.Not to mention a farmers market. On-Campus: Blackhawk has a great selection and occasionally surprise/special meal options. There are also many options in Reeve and even in academic buildings.

    Sure, you'll find your standard mess hall options, but you also have convenience stores, fast food joints, and ethnic food right on campus, too!

    Food and dining options are quite limited, to be honest, but this isn't peculiar to only UW-o. However, there are options for every kind of eater: the picky, the go-getter, the food lover, and the vegetarian. Food prices are also fairly low.

    Greek Life is amazing on campus!! Everyone is together and united with each other. Most universities have feuds between Sororities and Fraternities but UWO has a bonding experience about it. We all realize that for all of us to prosper, we have to support one another at fundraisers and other forms of outreach. That is why Greek Life brings LIFE to UW-Oshkosh.

    I am not involved with the Greek life on campus however I do have some friends that are and they say that it is one of the best decisions they made. Being involved with a sorority or fraternity has opened them up to so many new opportunities and they have met to many friends with similar interests.

    There are five different sororities and five fraternities at UW Oshkosh. They seem to have a lot of fun and are involved in a lot of campus activities such as homecoming, blood drives, and other events. They're easy to join and always up to recruiting new members. Plus, they provide an excellent way to meet new people and make great friendships.

    I have not had much experience with the Greek Life here, but from what I can tell they are quite active and have a presence on the campus.
