    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.

    Iup offers a variety of options when it comes to food. Theres Fosters which is known as the cafeteria. Fosters by itself has a variety of food from grilled food, to home style food, to vegan food. Then theres Folgers and the Hub which also offer foods such as salads, wraps, pizza, bagels, and much more! If you're in a rush and need to get something quick for lunch the pod offers bagged lunches which are quick and easy to get.

    There are many different types of dining options available at IUP. With the easy-to-use flex and meal plan swipes, it makes dining more enjoyable! There are also many different restaurants off-campus as well if you feel like spending a night out on the town!

    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!

    Not personally planning on doing Greek related things, but they have an event about two weeks into the semester where you can learn about the various frats and sororities. IUP doesn't place too much empasis on them, which is nice so that you don't have to feel like you don't belong if you aren't a part of one.

    IUP's Greek life is known for wild parties and being crazy, but the academic fraternities is where the spotlight should be. They open up doors for many opportunities. Plus it's a great way to meet people that share common interests that you do and that also share the same priorities that you do.
