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

    The food at Hunter is pretty good overall but it is pricy. If you don't have time to go outside it is convenient. Bringing lunch from home is great option and there are microwaves on the 2nd floor in Hunter west in a small room behind the vending machines for student use.

    There is a cafeteria and dining lounges in the school, but there are also many food/dining options outside as well. There is even a Chipotle a block away!

    Not everyone enjoy cafeteria food, but when it comes down to options you should always yelp your surroundings to see what is available for you.

    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!
