    Not the best and overpriced. However there are a lot of food carts (mostly halal) in the surrounding area.

    The food can be a bit more diverse. Also, the pizza is not worth the price. There are many restaurants and fast food type places around the main campus.

    The quality of the food is not the greatest ever, however it is pretty good and I have absolutely eaten here on many an occasion. The soups are one of the best items in the cafeteria, however they are not made by the campus, but instead are provided by a pretty large name soup brand (H & H). However, keep in mind that if you do eat here everyday, it can add up pretty quickly!

    Upper East Side is expensive and you may eat the same food every week, but at times you'd want to treat yourself to the many diverse food location around Hunter College.

    Expensive food. Just go around the school and look for other cheaper options. There are food carts outside and around the city.

    Not big on Greek here and definitely no frat/sorority houses.

    Greek life is here, just not the same as in an upstate or out of state. They also own club rooms, hold parties, and participate in charity funds/bakesales.

    Hunter College is very limited on Greek life. But, you are always welcome to attend events and check them out if you would like to join them!
