    There is something new in the cafeterias everyday and offer dessert and 6 different main food option in addition to fruit, salad, and self-made sandwiches. The food, for the most part, is cooked well and not burnt or undercooked. You can become tired of it though since its Gordons Food Service and we all know they are not exactly the home cooking we used to be used to.

    The food I had at CMU was amazing. Lots of choices and they were healthy. (most of them) I also hit the dessert bar and their cookies were awesome and so were their ice cream sandwiches

    i do not like the food in the cafe, there are select meals that are decent and some that i actually look forward to but for the most part the food isn't good. any type of pasta is watery, and the sauce normally doesn't taste the same as other places. i wish they had breakfast all day because i love breakfast food and theres really not way to mess it up. the upside is, dining halls are close to all the dorms, therefore you don't have to walk far to get food.

    food and dining is great at cmu there are a couple of cafeterias and everyone can go to all of them but most people go to the ones that's closest to them. fresh is the east area cafeteria and in my opinion the best one because it is the one i mostly go to! the staff is super nice everywhere and the food is healthy and accommodates everyone's diets. i particularly appreciate that because i am muslim and there's certain foods i can't eat, but there's always other options for me! there is also opportunities to be employed at these cafeterias and one of my close friends worked at fresh and they are very accommodating with the person's school schedule.

    The food is good and there are a respectable amount of choices. There are healthy alternatives but you can also get a good burger and fries. Buffet style dining is also a plus.

    RFoC (Real Food on Campus) is hands down the best food you'll have on campus. They have different food stations such as soup/salad, american dinner, mongolian food, international dinner and everyones favorite pizza.

    Greek's are very involved in the community and on campus. Look for flyers and postings around campus for recruitment opportunities if interested. Fraternities and Sororities are very diverse and welcoming.

    I don't have personal experiences with greek life but I know so many people in different sororities and fraternities. I am more familiar with people apart of Divine Nine. Each one has a week full of events to engage the community in their organization with different topics such as stereotypes and volunteer opportunities.

    Heavy roots with Greek life on campus, not really my cup of tea because i don't really feel the need to belong to something i think i can do just fine on my own with making friends but that's opinion. If you want to i'm sure its amazing also great for networking after school.

    Greek life is EVERYTHING! I did not want to join a sorority. There was no way I was going to be around a bunch of snotty, pretentious, I'm better than you kind of girls. HOWEVER! They are not like that at all. They are all so very sweet, considerate, funny, down-to-earth, happy, fun-loving women. They do not starve themselves to keep a certain image because they know that true beauty and character is from the inside. It is truly a marvelous community and organization to get involved in. #DPhiE

    Again, I believe Greek life is amazing at CMU. I was in Alpha Chi Omega and it changed my life for the better and I met my best friends there. Greek life is a great way to be apart of the community and they encourage you to study hard and give back to the community.
