    Gannon is good with food. They are pretty good with allergies too. I have celiac disease and all of their food is marked whether it contains wheat, dairy, etc.

    The food is horrible. The main cafeteria starts off good and degrades as the year goes on. Docs landing, the fast food store, is the best spot on campus.

    Metz is our supplier of food for Gannon. Overall, it is very good. It gives you a variety of different choices every day, so you never have the same thing too much. But, if you don't like the special of the day, there is always pizza or wraps that you can get.

    There are many places to eat on and off campus. On campus places do have really good food but it is a little expensive if you are not using a meal plan but off campus site allow you to use GU gold so you can get food that is cheaper.

    I usualy don't eat at campus but when I do I always enjoy a chicken sub on italian bread. Yum, I hope that makes you hungry; you should come try it yourselves.

    As a commuter, I am not one to be found in the cafeterias or dinners around campus, but I can be spotted grabbing a snack from some of the smaller cafes which offer an excellent variety of food. The variety is so extensive that one can even find gluten free options which truly shows how insistent Gannon University is on catering to the individuals.

    Fraternities and sororities make up a large percentage of the student body. Fraternity and sorority members participate in homecoming and greek week. Members are usually involved in many other clubs on campus, as well. Each fraternity and sorority has unique characteristics, requirements, philanthropies, etc.

    I love greek life and would definitely advise anyone to join. You are a leader on campus, and get to meet many more people. It also provides a great foundation for you while in college.

    Gannon currently has five sororities and six fraternities with a seventh in the making. Greek life is fun, exciting and opens many doors for the students who chooses to go greek. I encourage every student to investigate greek life on campus, especially Phi Sigma Sigma. LITP!

    Gannon is big on greek life. Even if you are not in Greek they are still welcoming and are not the stereotypical greeks. There is a fraternity or sorority that fits almost everyone.
