    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!

    It depends. Sometimes the food is good, sometimes its unseasoned or watered down. There is a website online that you can go to, to see what the dining hall is serving that day and when. It is really helpful! There are 3 dining halls but 2 of them have late-night hours and stay open until 1 am making food to order.

    There isn't that many options for dining in Pullman due to the size of the city but thankfully its neighboring city is Moscow where there are more options to choose from for students. It is a middle class income setting with a few high end restaurants, but there are some great local businesses and restaurants for each person to like or feel comfortable in.

    It's not the best but there is a variety and there are plenty of options throughout the day all over campus. There are definitely some places better than others but it's all a matter of opinion.

    Northside Dining Hall is the best place to be because it's fine quality food for the athletes that live in the dorms nearby as well as for other students. The other dining halls are alright quality wise. I haven't minded them for the year I've spend in the dorms and eating the food.

    There are many little places to get food from, this can be the actual dining halls, or the small coffee shops and even fast food places that are found almost anywhere. The food in the dining halls are actually pretty good and just going to find a place to eat can be a fun experience too. In all the food here is good and you might even find a favorite among the rest.

    Food at Washington State is pretty good. It is nothing like sit down restaurants but the food is pretty good. It ultimately depends on how much you want to spend and where you go.

    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.

    Greek life is pretty overwhelming. Personally I find it terribly annoying because you can't go out to froyo without a bunch of frat boys/ sorority girls filling the place not only physically but they are so loud and impolite. That's just me. There are many many maaany parties. This year (2013) there were parties every single night the first week of school. I'm not sure if WSU has hazing here but I've definitely heard of light hazing happening. But generally it is very large at WSU and there are a lot of people involved.

    The Greek life is huge! Its one big loop and people are always willing to help you get around. They throw great parties but they also do a good job at cleaning up and doing the sisterly/brotherly thing.
