  • Dorm life has it's ups and downs but overall I can't really complain. The ups: they're close to classes, and most have a food court or c-store located within them…

    not all dorms have cafeterias. the cafe at forest is nice. most dorms and academic halls have a bistro for salads and wraps all over campus. did someone say "mother bear's pizza?"

    The food is good, but all dorm food gets tiring after a while. Luckily, IU has campus stores that have real food as well.

    RPS does have some good food places, but they are the most expensive ones and aren't affordable to eat at often on a standard meal plan. As far as restaurants close to campus, there are tons of great options!

    Forest Dining Hall will spoil you. I go to Wright usually and that's actually ok food but Forest is fine dining compared to Wright. I've found plastic in my mexican food at Gresham, so unless you live in Northwest, avoid it at all costs. Go around 5 for dinner and 11 for lunch and everything is fresh at all the food courts. It's not buffet which is weird, you pay for what you eat so you can't eat at Forest all the time since its a bit more expensive.

    The only reason that food and dining gets two stars, instead of one, is because the food at Forest is unbelievable. Although it is very expensive, it's a treat to get to eat right there. As for dining halls such as Gresh, they are barely tolerable for human consumption. The food was always greasy, dry, overcooked, or not ripe. The staff was horrible and took forever to make a simple sandwich.

    not my thing. it's quite robust at iu though. women should be on their guard at frat parties as iu is soft on discipline for rape and other atrocities.

    Sororities and frats are a big deal at IU. I don't know much about it because greek life isn't for me, but I know some people who are in frats and they really enjoy it.

    Personally, I am not part of the Greek life on campus. Friends have told me that the rushing competition is rough and it can be difficult to be paired with your house of choice. There are many well-reputed houses on campus and students fall in love with the house they are paired with and soon call them their new family.

    A large percentage of the students at IU are involved with Greek Life. There are many fraternities and sororities to choose from. Still, if you would rather refrain from Greek Life it is easy to do so.

    20% of the students are involved with the greek life. There are numerous volunteer and philanthropy opportunities if you're involved in a greek organization. However, there is the chance to be as involved as you would like, even if you aren't involved in a greek organization.

    Greek Life is awesome! I am not in it but I have many friends that are and I have got a great view of it from the outside in. It is not for everyone and can get harsh but don't be scared, but ready for a learning experience to grow: and that goes for if you get in a house or not. You do not have to be in greek life or absorbed by it to have fun. Also before you jump to the parties, know the importance of what each house's legacy is and history. The people that decide on a greek experience for the wrong reasons will have to live with that until they graduate, be wise. Greek life is cracking down at IU as people are catching on to its growing party image and lack of volunteer and community empowerment. Be part of the frat or sorority that is a positive change. No one will care how many pairs your top tier sorority had with Beta at your first real-life interview.

    The greek life controls the school. Dont worry though, there are plenty of GDI's, including me.
