    The on-campus dining is decent, and there are hundreds of restaurants in the city surrounding the college.

    It can be really good sometimes and if it's not, there are always staples that taste decent that you can get anytime. Cereal, fruit, burgers, fries, deli sandwiches, salads are all available all the time.

    There are two main dining halls in the Asa Packer campus, Rathbone and Lower Cort. The food there is sometimes good and sometimes not so great depending on the day. You also have the option of dining in the Upper Cort where the food court is located. There are various cafes and food trucks located around the campus. You can get tried eating at the same place, so tried to switch it up when you can.

    There are different places and options to eat, both on and off campus. There are two main cafeterias on campus and there are places where you can use dining dollars to pay for meals or snacks. When it comes to food there are many different options. However, food in which you have to use dining dollars is somewhat expensive. If you ever come to campus be sure to try the milkshakes at Hawk's Nest. There's a lot of different milkshake options and they are the best tasting milkshakes I've ever had!

    They have 2 all you can eat cafeterias and multiple other places to eat on campus. They are also very close to downtown Allentown where you can find more restaurants and they are all within walking distance from campus.

    Not involved and not really interested. The engineering fraternity sounds okay, but the others are similar to the fraternities on other campuses. Lots of parties and drinking.

    About a third of the student body is involved in Greek life. While there is a large presence of Greek life on campus, I feel that students are not necessarily excluded if they choose to not join a sorority or fraternity.

    the strong Greek system at Lehigh has been an important part of the student experience. The deeply rooted and well-established Greek system offers wide latitude in options, allowing most students interested in Greek life to find an organization that reflects their individual values, needs and interests.

    Greek life is very active, approximately 50% of students are in Greek Life. Don't let this scare you if you don't want to go greek though!

    It's overwhelming. More than half of the school goes greek at some point and a lot of the activities are hosted by the frats or sororities, but there isn't a lot of pressure to join really. If you want to- there are TONS of options. If not, there's no reason you'd have to.
