    I really like how you can use your Bradley Bucks to eat at other places other than the cafeteria. The food plans are pretty good.

    The food isn't terrible. It's obviously not a fine dining experience though. As a vegetarian I am a tad disappointed with the options that I have. My main problem is with the options you have for meal plans. The only meal plans available cost 2000 dollars. I am 5'1 and 110 pounds, I do not eat 2000 dollars worth of food. If you do, it's a great deal! I do not.

    There are so many great options! Student Center is open late, so you can always get a midnight snack! I also love that the dining center menus are posted online so you can decide where to go.

    There was plenty of close access to campus dining facilities, but most were closed since I visited in the summer.

    The dining halls are not the best out of colleges I've visited, but places like the student center and Center Court offer decent food options. If you don't mind walking a bit further, then Campus Town has some delicious options.

We have two dining halls which have delicious meals. We have center court which offers several different kinds of food.

    Greek life is huge! But it isn't so huge that you should feel pressured to join it. Everyone gets along with each other for the most part, Greek or not, but I highly recommend rushing. You meet so many great people that way!

    Bradley has a greek life of about 60%! Bradley's greek life involves unity. There is no hazing or hatred. Everybody is equal and everybody gets along. Bradley's greek life doesn't match up to the typical sorority girl or frat guy talked about in movies and books. Bradley has it simple and greek life here is about common interests.

    If you have the money then join the Greek Life. If not, you will not be missing out on much. This campus is very diverse for clubs and making friends.

    The greek life is very prominent on campus and they are always throwing fun events and activities for everyone to enjoy. They show their pride all over campus and they are very friendly to people even if they aren't in a sorority. Your always guaranteed to get a bid into at least one of the sororities.
