    The food and dining services at Bloomsburg University are also a favorite aspect of mine. The workers are so friendly and talkative. The food is great! This university makes it very easy for students to get meals wherever they are at whatever time they need.

    The food can be alright on a good day. The only thing i must say is not being able to get much food for such a small price. I hate going to the commons and using my meal swipe and realizing they don't have anything i'm going to eat. I just wasted money for nothing. I think there should be a menu out before we swipe our card to get food. We should be able to get more food for a less price especially at the husky. I'm sorry if i want a hamburger, fries, and a drink i paying like $10. That ridiculous!!

    I personally don't eat three meals a day but if you do then you are set, there are a bunch of different places and you won't get tired of them.

    Campus dining is fantastic, there are many choices of food. Bloomsburg has some of the best food services. There are two Starbucks, an enormous campus cafeteria, two fast food style restaurants and a fast food style/restaurant style food service place on upper campus. Food here is very good.

    Walking the campus and asking about food may show a pattern that about half dislike the main cafeteria while the other half do. After visiting many different schools and eating in their cafeteria, I can honestly say that Bloomsburg's is the best. And if someone doesn't like the main cafeteria, there are three other restaurants on campus that close at midnight.

    There are not many healthy choices unless you want to eat a salad at every meal. However, if you like fried food, you'll have no problem here. The food at the commons is turned out for quantity not quality, but the desserts are good.

    So many different options on campus to eat. There's a starbucks to get morning coffee before class, which is always nice. The lines in all dining areas always move quickly as well and the food options are always delicious and healthy.

    There is a lot of Greek Life at Bloomsburg. People either love it or hate, but you cannot go anywhere in Bloomsburg without seeing someone who is in a sorority or fraternity.

    Greek life is amazing. All of my friends are involved in greek life and they love it. I plan on joining a sorority as well. I've done my research and it is such a great experience and you do so many fun benefits and community service projects.

    It exists. You see events around campus promoting greek life along with various community service activities. It does not dominate the campus however and no one will judge you if you join greek life or don't.

    Greek life is a very large part of the campus. They take a lot of pride and are always doing something in the community.
