    There are plenty of food options on campus. My friends and I always meet for lunch and dinner at one of the dining halls. The dining halls are buffet style and offer a wide variation of food each night. In the Student Union there are plenty of options for picky eaters. Our convenient store on campus, Outtakes, is very over priced but they sell many things that you could purchase for your dorm.

    It's college food, what do you expect. I do enjoy that there is a Panda Express in the union. As well as Starbucks, and a Dunkin relatively close.

    Ehh. Make sure you get a decent job or have friends who work off campus the dining halls food are only good the first day you move in it gets worst but the Union has great food and you will inevitably spend all of your falcon dollars and be forced to eat at dining halls.

    The food here is decent. I've definitely eaten worse. There are a lot of choices for places to eat and different types of food.

    There are a variety of food options on campus. There is a Pinkberrys, Steak Escape, Panda Express, Jamba Juice, Marcos Pizza, Starbucks, Dunk n Donuts and quite a few others. There are two new huge dining halls with unique and beautiful architecture. The cafeteria type food is excellent as well. I could never complain about their food and dining, they have always fed me well.

    I'm not involved in greek life, but I know we have a strong Greek life. I know a lot of people in Greek Life, and they are all so nice! But like mentioned before you do not have to be a part of greek life to be a part of campus!

    Greek Life is on campus and several people I know are involved and love it. However, I'm not personally involved. It is a great way to meet people, but there are so many other ways too.

    There are 43 fraternities and sororities on campus at Bowling Green, and all of them are friendly, and always walking around campus socializing. From hosting events, to walking their cute puppies around, the fraternities and sororities at Bowling Green are unlike any other college's.

    As a member of a greek organization here on campus, I have to say that the greek life at BGSU is amazing. The bonds between all of the different chapters on campus is awesome. All of the chapters support each other and hazing is zero-tolerance. It definitely is an amazing thing to become a part of!
