    The dining hall is called Valsetz and it is pretty good. They have a good selection of different foods everyday and they stay open late at night so if you get the munchies. Also in town there are some small town restaurants that are really good such as West Coast Pizza or Yangs.

    As to be expected, eating the same food on campus day in and out get old- the food is good though. The town if filled with cheap little restaurants to help add some varitety.

    Good so far as I know. There is a cafeteria connected to the main dorms, and a food court in the university center. I have only eaten on campus a couple of times, so my experience with the food itself is limited.

    Campus dining is small, its called Valsetz, and its the main place where all students go if they have a meal plan. There is also the Cafeteria Summit at the Werner University Center, but its a lot more expensive there than the dining hall.

    It is a little on the pricey side, but that's to be expected. On the plus side, there is always a wide variety of food, and the dining hall is right next to the dorms.

    Until recently there were no fraternities or sororities. I think they have recently founded a non-residential fraternity in the last couple of years.

    There's only one fraternity that began last year (2011-2012 school year) called Kappa Sigma. To be honest, they are nothing like the frats you may have heard of at huge universities like Arizona State University and all those well known party schools. Don't get too excited.
