    the bsu campus has food and coffee shops all over the place, along with restaurants right outside campus. there are often bsu clubs that will hand out free food and beverages, which always makes my day better. there is a wide variety of good food at the dining center.

    The food selections on campus are practically endless, at each major building there is at least one food vendor present. There is also 3 convenience type stores on campus that sell food that can also be stored like macaroni and cheese and ravioli. The Boise River Cafe located in the Student Union Building is the place where most students who have meal plans on campus eat the majority of the time. But when the BRC as it is referred to by students gets old or isn't open there is many other food options. Including panda express, chick-fil-a, subway, papa johns, as well as others. There is also a frozen yogurt place and a student favorite pizza joint that is open into the wee hours of the morning for midnight study breaks. The pizza place even takes flex dollars covered by the meal plan.

    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.

    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, but thats what makes it so nice. All of us are really close and are able to help each other out.
