    Again, I transferred so I didn't experience the campus food, but most people end up having more money for food than needed from what I've heard.

    Plenty of variety and options for all types of eaters. The new North Dining Hall is huge and has a bunch of options. The food here is pretty good, and most of the time you can find at least one place that is open.

    With tons of places to eat, you are bound to find SOMETHING you like. The biggest problems are long lines and nearly everything costing more than one meal swipe. Be sure you watch the cost, or you'll be going hungry the rest of the week.

    It's alright. The main dining hall sucks, but there are a few other places that are okay. If you're looking for late-night food, you better like pizza.

    The food is ok. They offer choices such as Chic Fil A and Einstein's in order to create variety on the campus. The cafeteria food could be enhanced.

    It is not that the food on campus is bad, just bad for you. There are a lot of food options on campus, yet not many of them are the most nutritious or non-fattening options. This makes it rather difficult for people not to gain the freshman 15.

    There are so many types of eateries on campus, and they are building even more. I love the Quiznos and Folgers Dining facilities. The food selection is varied.

    There are tons of fraternities and sororities on campus, which means that there is probably one that will fit you perfectly! They hold tons of events every month and attend other greek life events. It's a great thing to do if you're looking for friends that party and study together! Freshman can't rush until Spring semester but it's worth the wait!
