  • Jan-31-2018 I am researching this school and have visited the campus

    There is coffee offered on campus especially during finals. There are places to eat blocks away such as Starbucks and fast food chains.

    Brooklyn has a wide variety of food and drinks you can choose from with the college cafe, many different cultural foods are given. And you don't even have to wait that long on line. You have vending machines on every floor when you're in the mood for a quick snack. There are also many fast food chains, restaurants and carts within walking distance from the school.

    There are food courts off and on the campus but there is no meal plan. There are over 25 restaurants to pick from on a strip called the junction outside of campus. The campus has its own Starbucks cafe which is connected to the library if you feel like keep yourself glued to a computer.

    The dining hall doesn't offer many healthy choices and variety (there's no gluten free options and such for people with sensitivities) and the food offered is fairly pricy.

    Well, welcome to college where everything is so darn expensive. Don't worry, there is a whole bunch of places where you can get food near by off campus if you don't want anything. The food is not bad, it is just pocket challenging. There are near by food trucks, near by almost all the time so no need to worry!

    The cafeteria in Brooklyn college does have its benefits. It's extremely convenient and the food isn't half bad. Overpriced, no doubt, but it's really the only place on or around campus to get a healthy sandwich. (Trust me I've looked) There is a small deli nearby off campus but the staff is snooty and it's turned me off from shopping there. Their prices aren't very welcoming either. The other alternatives are Quiznos, Subway, Dunkin Donuts, Popeyes and a few others. Depends on your preference but students aren't disappointed with the variety.

    In the beginning of every semester all the sororities and fraternities come out on campus to recruit new members, They host welcoming parties in various locations in order for you to fall in love with them!

    There are a few fraternity and sororities. The frat guys are pompous morons and douche bags. The sorority sisters are nasty trolls, and possibly the dumbest people on the face of this Earth.

    There are some Greek students at Brooklyn College, but I have not had the chance to meet them or explore their campus life.

    We have sororities, so I've heard..and seen with everyone wearing sorority sweaters and jackets. Maybe I'll join one soon, but they all seem, well put together and all of that good stuff.

    This college is not really big on greek life but there are a number of fraternities/sororities on campus. Even if the one you want isn't there, you can bring a chapter onto campus.
