    I think they said they got a new dining area.

    The Center for student learning provides those who have a meal plan with unlimited food which is a plus. The food quality varies but nothing to complain about. There is also a Brew that provides Starbucks coffee

    The dining center has a variety of good food, but the meal plan is severely over priced and required for first and second year students.

    The cafeteria is pretty good on serving a wide variety of food however it can be better as for food around town don't expect too much but there is McDonald's, chipotle, and other fast food's nearby.

    Standard college food. Has improved a bit since we got the new CSL, but if you have a restricted diet your options are very limited.

    There are so many food option this year that will accommodate special diets such as gluten or nut allergies, lactose intolerance, and vegetarian, vegan, and food sensitive options. Food service staff is very helpful and is willing to make accommodations for your specific case or need. The new CSL dining provides Asian cuisine, comfort foods, an Italian pizzeria, a sandwich station, a breakfast bar, specialty foods section, and a salad/fruit bar.

    We got a new, one-of-a-kind Center for Student Life that houses our food, library, and study areas all in one place. We have a Starbucks coffee shop that is known as The Brew and our dining is all you can eat every time you swipe in. The downside is that we have to use a meal every time we enter, so it is not easy to just go to hang out with friends and we don't get a refund on meals that we don't use for the week (most students have a 15 meal-per-week plan and I haven't heard of anyone who runs out).

    Food was edible. But the campus made major changes in dining services and I am expecting better things in 2013.

    The food that was served to students on campus seemed great. Although I didn't have a chance to eat in the cafe to get a feel of what the food is really like.

    You dont have to be in it, but it is everywhere on campus. A large portion of the students like to be social and it is a great way to have fun and branch out, they have competitions every year so it is fun to watch and participate. There is a Frat or Sorority for everybody

    Greek life is a huge thing at Augie, though no one will pressure you into joining if you don't want to. We have seven social fraternities and seven social sororities along with multiple national groups, so there's a place for everyone to fit in.

    Greek life is local, so the sororities and fraternities aren't known worldwide and are technically made up. They form a close bond with each other and are an amazing support system.

    There are no national sororities or fraternities on campus, but about 1/3 of the students on campus are affiliated with a Greek sorority or fraternity.

    Greek life is prominent on our campus, rush isn't until spring but many students participate in Greek life before that. They participate in many of the homecoming events including rope pull, yell (stomp routines), and sing (take popular songs and rewrite the lyrics to Augustana themes).

    Augustana has 7 sororities and 7 fraternities. All are local chapters, but that does not take away from the fact they act like many national sororities and fraternities. Greek life at Augustanan focuses on social events, philanthropy, leadership building, and greek unity.

    Augie Greek life is unique in that Sororities and Fraternities are not national, but they are still deep in tradition!

    Greek life is big, but only if you're involved with it. There's a service Greek group as well as music ones, and the rest are social. The majority party on Wednesday and the weekends, but it's really easy to stay out of if you don't want to be involved. You're really not judged if you're not going Greek! :)

    The Greek community at Augie receives friendship, fellowship, and academic support. The sororities and fraternities are unique.
