    The food is great if you are not a vegan, vegetarian, and don't mind eating the same thing every other day. They really need a more diverse menu with more healthy options. Most of the entrees the cooks prepare taste good but are greasy and full of artery-clogging cheese. The dorms are more expensive that living off of campus and they force you to have a meal plan even in you have food allergies or a selective diet.

    The food isn't very good, and it's really expensive. It's way better to not have a meal plan and just buy your own food. A lot healthier too!

    Riverside Commons is the main dining area on campus. It's buffet-style and good, but it can get repetitive. Luckily, you can get a transfer meal (if you're on a meal plan, which freshmen are required to have) at the retail dining areas on campus and at the UC Convenience store. Retail dining includes an Erberts & Gerberts ( a sandwich shop), St. Croix Grill (beef and burgers), Noodles and Greens (a pasta/noodle/salad place), and Petes Creek Market (a variety of foods like chicken tenders and macaroni and cheese). There is also a coffee shop, Peregrine Park, which brews and sells Caribou Coffee items. The UC convience store offers a transfer meal of a sandwich, chips, and milk after 7:00 pm.

    The campus dining has it's dishes but like most public eateries it has some things that you wouldn't eat unless you had too. The option of a transfer meal and the other restaurants give a needed relief once and while but I still would go to the main area for the coffee in the morning and the ice cream in the afternoon.

    Food and dining here is not really the best. For some people, it is considered unhealthy. Many people don't really mind though because they watch what they eat and eat in portions.

    There is a wide range of food to choose from. They do a great job of catering to dietary needs as well. The food mostly comes from campus gardens and animals.

    Greek Life isn't supported very well by the campus. There are no fraternity or sorority houses on campus and they don't seem like they are much of an honor.

    I know we have quite a few Greek life clubs, but I haven't participated in any of them so I don't know what they are like.

    I personally am not in involved in greek life, but I have an older friend you absolutely loved it and made some of the greatest friends during her experience. It's not a big part of campus, but they are there.

    The Greek life here on campus is okay. Some have houses but not very many. The boys frats seem to be taking over the sororities.

    The greek life is on campus. The students are mostly agriculture students and they do a lot of activities for the whole student body on campus.

    The Greek girls that I've been around and talked to all seem very eager and willing to welcome new girls into their sororities. They're very amiable and are never hard to approach and they're very accepting! They're always looking to recruit and love having a fun time with everyone.

    There are several sororities and fraternities located on campus and they are very involved with campus. I have friends in campus sororities and fraternities and they are always out and about on campus and in the community volunteering and making River Falls a better place to live!

    There are many sororities and fraternities available on campus that provide a sense of belonging to each student as well as friendship. Each one sponsors different events and does different activities throughout the year.
