    Like I mentioned in Dorm Life, many of the dorm villages have their own dining halls that are open early/late and even all night in some places! There is a huge dining hall in Lory Student Center on the main floor with restaurants like Panda Express, Subway, Hardees and others. But the very best part is that there is a pub in the basement of Lory. Seriously. If you are at least 21 years old, you can purchase beer from local breweries and buy pizza or other pub food to be delivered to your table as you study. It is the best place ever.

    I don't mind the food. There are many choices of where and what to eat. Something for everyone's specific tastes.

    We ate at the Lorey center. It was okay. I am sure that it is average or above other schools.

    I love the food!!! Each dinning center on campus has a variety of different food for you to enjoy. There is also options for vegetarians and vegans. The dining centers are very considerate for others who have different diets. There also the food court in the LSC, which has a some fast food restaurants that we all enjoys. Eating on campus is very affordable for students. Some including Subway, Panda, Carls Jr.,Taco Bell, and more. The majority of the time I eat on campus and I haven't got tired of the food yet!

    The dining hall food isn't terrible, but you will get tired of it. There are 6 dining halls on campus so shake it up every now and again. Also, if you feel like splurging a bit, walk to Old Town and there are a ton of restaurants around town. (Perks of living in a college town? Most food places stay open until 3am and will deliver.)

    I wasn't a part of Greek Life, but I can tell you that many of the houses have upstanding reputations in town. They do a lot of community service, host their own scholarships, and provide a really tight-knit family to their members.

    Greek Life is something on campus that is most definitely respected. Everyone can find a sorority or fraternity that fits them and makes them feel like they are at home.

    I have not personally been to any of the greek life but most of their houses and very modern and nice. There is tons of them also, some are for specific majors and others for random things. Seem like a very close knit group.

    I haven't personally joined a sorority, but my roommate is in Kappa Delta and absolutely loves it! She's got me thinking about joining my sophomore year.
