    On campus food isn't horrible, but it can get old pretty quick. ABP is my favorite and more healthy options. There isn't much variety in the food, its mostly chicken and salads. Village dining is really great but can be inconvenient if you don't live in the Village. The Wellness Kitchen has great food, but it is incredibly expensive to eat there.

    The dining at the campus is good and there are also good places to eat outside the campus such as Country's Barbeque. Toomers Drugstore's lemonade is also a favorite at Auburn.

    The food and dining of Auburn University is delicious to say the least. It continues to add new food options through student surveys every year. Personally I am a Panda Express enthusiast, literally. I love chow mein and honey walnut shrimp so I love Auburn even more! However, the school has dining halls in every aspect of on-campus living quarters. There is a student that has a dining kitchen , a grocery kiosk, and other food options to chose from. You will always be feed at Auburn University.

    The food plan is fantastic! The plan works like a debit card on the campus I.D. Although, it is required it does help students buy food on-campus easily. However, I found it difficult to budget my food money during my first semester and it was a lesson in spending for me. Otherwise, there are great places to buy food on-campus like Chick-fil-a and Panda Express as well as other restaurants of different varieties.

    Required dining plans for both on and off campus residents. Many buffets on campus as well as other independent food locations. We have two Starbucks on campus and are continuing to add other independent food locations around campus in addition to the Chickfila, Panda Express, and Rye of the Tiger locations.

    There is some good food at Auburn but it is definitely overpriced. I love how we have real restaurant and not a plain dining hall and we have so many options. But the food is not always very good and you have to wait in line for it for a long time usually.

    Food on campus is everywhere. You will not have a problem finding it for sure. In the summer your options are limited because not nearly as many places are open and the places that are have limited hours but during the fall there's over 40 places on campus to eat not including the food trucks and places right off campus (even though the only off campus place you can use dining dollars in Moma G's). My only complaints about AU food are the fact that there aren't enough healthy options for those that are vegan or vegetarian and that the healthy options they do have are often not available a lot of the time or as fresh as much as everything else.The new Wellness Kitchen is opening in the fall but unless you're an athlete you can't really use it and if you do it'll run you around $20 as a non athlete.

    I love the food on campus. It is a lot to choose from and the employees are very well mannered and courteous. You have access to food on campus basically in every area of it. Auburn also provides you with a pretty good amount of money to have a chance to eat anywhere on campus. Restaurants consist of Papa John's, Chick-fil-a, Greek, Chick and Grill, Denny's (open 24hrs), and more.

    The dining services Auburn has to offer continue to get better each year. There are a ton of restaurants and food courts all over campus. A few of the places to eat include Chickfila, Salsaritas, Panda Express, Papa Johns, Starbucks, etc. We also have a lot of food trucks. They include a hibachi, smoothie, donut, grilled cheese, and more. The only downside is that we do not have a cafeteria so there aren't any home cooking places.

    Greek life can feel overwhelming if you aren't in a sorority/fraternity. Frat parties are all right, if you are a girl, you can get in no matter what. Guys who aren't in frats have more issues trying to go to frat parties. Everyone in the system is super nice, so if you aren't sure if you want to rush, you should go for it. You can always drop during recruitment and you are bound to meet some great people during rush.

    Auburn University is not a majority Greek campus, but we do have the Panhellenic and IFC organizations here. If that is something a student would be interested in, there are a lot of people who really enjoy it. It is not everything at Auburn University though, there are a lot of people not involved in the Greek system that are very happy to not be a part of it. It does not define who you are on this campus.

    Greek life may seem like a big part of Auburn but is actually only about 25% of the student body. If you're interested in Greek life, the fraternities have houses, and the sororities have halls and chapter rooms. There are many Greek organizations to choose from, some even including religious or service themes. If you're not interested in this, it's not overpowering, and you will still find somewhere to fit in.

    I recommend going greek, by all means they're are plenty of other options, but it's a great way to get involved before school even starts.

    I am not in a sorority but I have many friends that are involved. It is a great way to meet new people right at the start but it is not necessary. That is one thing I love about Auburn. Students do not have to be apart of the Greek community to be involved and a part of Auburn.
