    There is many options to eat I would list them all but to be honest I forgot most of them. But anyways, use your meals and pirate bucks smartly cause they will go by fast.

    With 2 Chick-Fil A's, 2 Starbucks, 2 Subways, a Chili's, 2 burger joints, 2 pizza places, an Einstein Bagels, a Panda Express, a Barbecue place, a sandwich shop and of course the dining halls, there is always a wide range of food on campus. The dining halls can sometimes vary in how good the food is but normally there are so many choices it doesn't really matter.

    There are many choices to eat on campus and especially in the two dining halls. I live on the hill so I eat at Todd dining hall. In Todd, there are many choices every day but they always have cereal for breakfast, pizza, pasta, chicken sandwiches and burgers for lunch and the same for dinner with other varieties. I'm generally a picky eater but I have always found something to eat.

    Food and dining is good because they give you different options. You get tired of going there everyday though. But they have different food places on campus like 360 and others where you can get subway, chic-fil-a, chili's and etc. That's a great thing because sometimes you don't want to eat the dining hall food.

    There are a number of restaurants available on campus, from Starbucks to Einstein Bros. There is a cafeteria, but I have never eaten there.

    The dining halls are AMAZING, for they have an omelet station that stays open all day, a sandwich and wrap station that are made to order, and a pasta station where you can make pasta with your favorite meats, cheeses, and sauces. Although the dining hall serves delicious foods, students constantly get tired of eating those foods, therefore they can visit areas around campus such as Chick-Fil-A or Chilli's to clench their hunger.

    The food is not bad. ECU has two dining halls: one on the hill and the other in West End. Fried Chicken Wednesdays are the best! There are also many other eating places throughout campus where you can use your meal plan. One nice thing about ECU's meal plan is that you can use it as often as you like because it is unlimited. You don't just get 3 meals a day. You can visit the dining hall all day if you want. ECU has 2 different plans- Purple and Gold plan.

    There are many sororities and fraternities and if you are interested you can find one. Most do not have houses and are service ones but some have houses.

    There are a multitude of sororities and fraternities and they are a way to gain connection to future jobs. Everyone is encouraged to pledge the fraternities or sororities, for they are an easy way to life long friends. Emails are sent out at the beginning of each year to notify each class when rush week is going to come in affect.

    Greek Life is a great way to be actively involved on campus. Students involved in Greek Life have higher GPA's and retention rates than non-Greeks. It provides you opportunities in leadership, volunteering, being part of a group and philanthropy activities. I highly recommend giving Greek Life a try!

    Greek life is no for everyone, but it is always a fun experience whether you are in a sorority/fraternity or not. It is also a good way to make life long friends and a good source for networking.

    The best thing that has ever happened to me! I'm amazed everyday the support and love I get from my sorority sisters and the Greek Life at ECU. It has changed me for the better and I am so happy to know I have a second family here at ECU.
