    Had lunch when I visited, and there were lots of options all around campus.

    The food is dining food, you can't expect 5star dining. It is good on most occasions but you may get tired of it by the end of the semester.

    Since i lived in stephenson this past year, most of my meals were consumed at the excellent (or not so) Southside dining hall. It was alright and i always found something to eat but sometimes that happened to be a turkey sandwich three nights in a row. Near the end of the semester the food ran low and variety was nonexistent.

    I've had the best chicken strips at WSU while they do a great job at creating various options I like to feel at home and WSU understands that by creating food you would eat any day every day

    The food and dining could use some more tender love and care. The food is digestible, but my taste buds ask for more natural and exquisite dishes.

    Healthy food is definitely available, but they lure you in to buy unhealthy stuff too! The food is good most of the time, but it can be difficult if what you are craving or what you enjoy is not served that day.

    Depending on what region of the campus you live (Northside, Hillside, or Southside) AND what day of the week it is, the food in the dining halls can be either slightly below average or fantastic. As a freshman or transfer or a student living on campus, RDA (residential dining account) is awesome in that everything is cheaper and it is easier to get food!

    The food is delicious and all cooked right in front of you so you know it is fresh! Some of the meals can be pretty pricey so you should totally get RDA, you get a huge discount by using it!

    The food is not as good as home cooking of course, but for dining halls, the food is very good and the options are great!

    Greek life is incredible. With tons of sororities and fraternities to pick from there is a place from you. Everyone is extremely friendly with each other which makes Homecoming in the fall and Greek Week in the spring a total blast. It is perfect for bringing the social butterfly out in any introvert(like it did for me) and is the best networking opportunity out there.

    This is the best thing that could ever happen to someone at a university. You can build relationships with so many people you may never have met in your entire time at college if you did not join. I have built so many of these relationships, and through the ups and downs, I would not trade my sisters or any other friendships from other Greek community members for anything in the world. I know they will always be there for me, and Greek Life is REALLY a lifelong treasure.

    I never experienced Greek life but I have friends who did and they enjoyed the bonding a lot. The Greek life became their close knit family and they were always really involved in various volunteer activities while also maintaining their academics at honorable GPA levels. The enthusiasm in the culture is always lively, positive and fun, with fun Greek exchanges, date nights, and recognitions.

    I do not participate because I am tired of drunk people from Greek row vandalizing my car and smashing bottles on my house.

    I'd recommend Greek life to anyone. I fell in love with my sorority the moment I met all my new sisters on bid day. The Greek system at WSU is very tight knit and you make so many connections that you may have not made otherwise. It allows you to grow and put yourself and your personality into something so much bigger. Not only do you make best friends, you make relationships that can last you a lifetime...from bridesmaids to future employers or employees. As I've said, even if you don't think the Greek system is for you, at least give yourself the chance to go through recruitment. You may open up your eyes to a whole new world that you fall in love. The Greek community at WSU throws so many different philanthropies. Not only are they always fun, you get to meet so many different types of Greeks and students, while giving back to the community and different charities/organizations.
