    The food is good most of the time. It may appear a bit boring occasionally, though there are festive dinners and change-ups from time to time. But the dining service is nice. There's usually an assortment of food that you'd be happy you're not cooking yourself

    A great variety of foods are available, both continental and traditional meals. For a certain fee, even thanksgiving dinner came be experienced there. The one problem is that there is no rotation or change of the food served every semester, which makes it get old after a while. The Call Hall ice-cream is delicious though.

    It's cafeteria food. Sometimes its really good. Sometimes not as much. There are plenty of options, including classics, borders (Mexican), grill, Italian, and specialty lines. I really wish that there was better fresh vegetables and fruits.

    The food here is great they have a lot of healthy foods and even some not so healthy ones for you to eat on campus and if you live off campus the possibilities are endless.

    I actually got to eat at the dining hall with my friends and the atmosphere and food were great! There were many different types of food options and if you're on the go you can grab a to go box and fill it up, which is great. The only downside was that it was packed and it was hard to find a seat.

    Food was usually pretty great at Derby. I did get food poisoning once from undercooked chicken, but that was the only time I really felt like the food was terrible. There are lots of options and a great variety for students to choose from. Breakfast was my favorite meal of the day! And I'm not typically a breakfast person. Willie Wok was definitely the best to eat at though. :)

    Greek Life is huge on K-State campus. We have 12 sororities, soon to be 13 and 24 fraternities. There is always an event going on, I mean always. It is not possible to go to every event. They are always being advertised on Facebook and on campus. We also are a very tight knit group. I have at least one friend in almost every fraternity and/or sorority, and I know most of us in Greek life are like this. We are in a certain house but that doesn't mean we don't have friends and aren't welcome at other houses. It is like one big family!

    There are many many fraternities and sororities to fit every person! 20% of K-State students belong to the Greek Life, and I'm sure they would tell you it's great!

    The greek life is growing and growing rapidly. It used to be the students who just partied but now most of the campus leadership comes from greek life.

    The greek life here at Kansas State University is very involved in philanthropy and also involved with other fraternities and sororities. No groups have any stereotypes and none of the houses fall into disagreement; in fact, almost all of the houses participate in the philanthropy events of the other greek communities.

    I'm not a member of the Greek life, but I do believe that Kansas State University students have fun in the Greek life.

    Students involved in Greek life are truly dedicated to their organization. Greek life is taken seriously on campus and provides many great opportunities for all students. Greek life develops activities that all students can participate in. All Greek life home locations are well taken care of and respected. Greek life makes a great part of Kansas State University.
