    The SUB has very good food options. Jamba Juice and Einstein's are the best places to eat.

    The meal plans are expensive. But to be fair, all colleges have expensive meal plans. The food is good but the premium nights aren't much better than what they serve anyway.

    There are plenty of food options, but as an amateur bodybuilder, I don't eat much of what is on campus. I like to eat clean. There are some options for clean eating, but for the most part it is quick food for not much money.

    The Greek Life has a presence. However, it's not shoved in everybody's face like at other Universities. And the houses are all pretty far off campus.

    Greek life could be a bit bigger here, but there are a few pretty prominent frats and sororities. They are all very friendly and helpful, so if you are interested, I encourage you to check it out.

    We only have one or two sororities I believe, so Greek life isn't significant here.

    We have a few sororities and fraternities on campus, they don't have houses that they live in but it seems like they still have a lot of fun.
