    the cafe food (which you are probably gonna pay for if you get a meal plan anyway) is almost always really good, with a pretty wide selection for all kinds of lifestyles. kosher and halal included!

    Marshall's food and dining areas are top of the line. They have two dining halls, and other restaurants such as Pizza Hut, chick fil a, and star bucks. The dining halls always have a variety of entrees from the pizza station, to the grill, the salad bar, or the international station. The chefs always prepare amazing meals, and take into consideration your opinions.

    The food on campus is GREAT! Sometimes it could get a tad bit repetitive that's why it's good to go to both dining halls so that you aren't stuck eating the same thing every night.

    The food is good If you are not a picky eater. There are two dining halls to choose from. Breakfast is always great. There is always a good selection of food during lunch and dinner as well. Cereal stays out all day which is good for a picky eater like myself. There is also the student center where you can eat with your flex points. They have a Starbucks, Chik-fila, Pizza hut, and other local eateries.

    Marshall University offers many different varieties of foods at different locations across campus. Even at convenient food carts, the quality of food is always high. The staff is always very friendly and offer great advice when it comes to cash equivalency with meal plans.

    Amazing! It is pricey but you are going to get that with all colleges. Pizza Hut, mexican foods, Chick-fillet, a sub shop, then you have the actual dining hall where you get an all you can eat buffet! It truly is great.

    The food is great especially when you must take into account that is has to be mass produced. They have many options for every kind of appetite.

    There are 11 fraternities and 6 sororities to choose from at Marshall. Most of them have houses on the outlying areas of the campus. Every year, twice a year, there are bid days for greek life. This is a fun way to find your place and meet all of the Greeks here on campus!

    I don't know much about the Greek life since I'm not in a sorority myself. I've listened to a lot of speeches about the Greek life from those who are actually in it though and it always sounds like a good opportunity for those who are into that sort of thing. More so, the Greek life is more for people who are looking for guidelines to get through college with support and fun mixed together. You'll have a greater chance of meeting friends for life there than you would going to a club.
