    There are several options for food on campus and off campus. The Union has some options for lunch, like Chick-fil-a and Panda Express. Hale also has an Einstein's in the basement where you can get a snack or lunch. You can also walk to Aggieville where there are so many restaurants to choose from (like Chipotle!). If not, you can always go to downtown Manhattan.

    The food in the dinning hall is pretty decent and they always have Call Hall Ice Cream and Milk. Also, there are tons of great places to eat throughout Manhattan that will fit into any budget.

    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

    I'm not sure if this will be something I am interested in or not. I'm not going to automatically dismiss it.

    I live in an all girls 4-H Scholarship House and it is amazing! I love being with people from different backgrounds from me and I have enjoyed the many friendships that I made since joining. Greek life is a great way to get out of your comfort zone and really experience K-State.

    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.
