    I've only eaten at the cafeteria on campus a handful of times, but when I did, it really wasn't too bad. Just typical cafeteria food. It does have a reputation for messing with your bowels though.

    The BRC (cafeteria) is awesome and the meal plans are a bargain. Make sure to get one that includes flex dollars because that is pretty much cash on your ID card.

    The Student Union Building, as well as other buildings on campus has awesome dining services. There are plenty of places to buy food, and the student meal plan area has anything you could want. There are also tons of good restaurants within walking distance of campus, catering to a pretty diverse group of tastes.

    There are sororities and fraternities on campus, but I don't know much about them. The people in them are your typical frat and sorority types. They aren't the most pleasant people to be around, and they have an over inflated view of themselves. However, that's not to say that they don't do some good around here. They've raised a lot of money for charities and what not, so they aren't completely rotten to the core.

    There are fraternities and sororities, but the greek life doesn't at all dominate the campus. You usually don't hear about it unless either of them is hosting a campus event.

    I haven't noticed a really big Greek Life here at Boise State. However, the small community that I have noticed is very tight knit and extremely supportive of the community. They aren't a chaotic group of party people, but seem more attuned toward being examples for the community and have a focus on developing well rounded citizens through academics and community service.

    Greek life is very small on campus. Although I'm not involved with the it, all the people in them are extremely kind! They do a lot of community service and are just all around awesome.
