  • There are apartments. Though they are nice, I would rather not live in them. They are overpriced, and it's so much better to just rent some where in the area.…

    Eagle Commons can be hit or miss but there are always alternatives around the area. The RRR (pronounced 'Tripple R') Road House and the Sakura Buffet provide a nice dining experience if you have a car or are willing to ride the bus.

    The apartments on campus have kitchens, so you fend for yourself. There is a cafe on campus, but it is mostly deep fried. If it isn't, it's usually cold or has an odd taste. The ladies that work there are nice, but the food in the overall is not very pleasant.

    There are only two different places to dine on campus and only one of them is on your meal plan, the other you have to use a meal plan plus money. The food choices are really not that good either, and they are repeated every two weeks.

    The food is really tasty, the cafeteria may not have high class chefs but the chefs there can make a great pizza.

    everyone has a different taste, and it all depends on where you go to eat. there are many food places around campus but as a college student your limited because of how much money you have to spare.

    Clarion University has numerous options when it comes to food! We have Eagle Commons which serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner. You pay with your student ID card and you can eat as much as you want! Then we have Gemmell which offers several food options from subs, to italian food and pizza made in an open faced brick oven! There are also other little cafes and Starbucks is also on campus!

    There is Greek life here but it isn't a major thing that's as prominent as other colleges and universities.

    A large portion of students on campus belong to a Greek fraternity/sorority. At Clarion University, there is a no hazing policy. The Greek fraternity/sororities work with the community and organizations to help the town of Clarion continue to grow.

    Greek life is very popular, we only have about 7,000 students but Greek life plays a big role in campus activities. Everyone affiliated with Greek life absolutely loves their Greek family.
