    Ashland is nationally ranked for our cafeteria (called Convo). Seriously. It's that good. There is always pasta and made-to-order sandwiches and rotisserie chicken and pizza, but there is also today's special and the hot bar is always a surprise. My favorite part is the birthday cake ice cream.

    The campus dining hall has been ranked best in the nation for many years. The cafeteria is served in buffet style. As a freshman, you are required to purchase an unlimited meal plan. The campus also offers two other dining options: The Eagles Nest, and the Schar Cafe. The Eagles Nest is located in the Student Center and uses meal swipes, Eagle Dollars or cash. The Schar Cafe also uses meal swipes, Eagle Dollars or cash and is located in the Schar Center of Education. If a student has the unlimited meal plan, they will have to pay for food at the Schar Cafe or Eagles Nest with Eagle Dollars or cash. There are also restaurants around campus: McDonald's, Taco Bell, Buffalo Wild Wings, Subway, Eva's Treats (Ice Cream and Frozen Yogurt), and Burger King.

    Ashland University has the best dining at the Convo! Great food, a lot of choices, and as much as you want to eat! You will not go hungry.

    Although they have award winning student dining services, they repeat the same menu every 2-3 weeks. By your 2nd-3rd year, you get way too sick of it. I ate cereal 60% of the time as a junior/senior.

    Ashland University has very good food. There are three different places to eat on campus that include 2 take out places and a sit down hall. Everything at Ashland is always fresh and there is tons of healthy choices to choose from.

    Greek life is such a huge part of this campus. I didn't rush during the fall but I'm currently going through spring recruitment because I want to be a part of these amazing friendships and group of individuals. However, the sororities do not have houses- they have suites on separate floors inside one of the dorms. Frats get their own house.

    Greek life here is amazing. Both fraternities and sororities. There are only 4 of each but the brotherhood/sisterhood they have are excellent.

    Greek life on campus is a popular activity to participate in. With the campuses no hazing rules students are always safe and not asked to do outrageous or dangerous things to become a member.

    I never got involved but when I was a student there the Greek life seemed very active from an outsider's perspective.

    I don't know if it was the small town atmosphere, but the Greek life was very gossipy and elitist. However, there are some groups that were amazing and attracted well-rounded individuals.
