    If you want a lot of sub-par food for one meal swipe, the cafeteria is a good place to go. The grill in the cafeteria does have its benefits, and the guy working there makes the burgers taste appetizing. If you want a small amount of good tasting food for one meal swipe, go to Skylight or Roscoe's. Those food places also take meal dollars and have pretty good food. The hours for Roscoe's constantly change, but can be really good when you're up late working on a paper. There's not a lot of cheap restaurants surrounding the campus, but there is a Panera Bread, Chipotle, Jimmy Johns, Zoup, and several other restaurants nearby. Also, Vagabond has 2 dollar taco Tuesdays and Thursdays

    There are SO many good places to eat around campus, and Skylite in our student union has really good sandwiches and fries!

    The cafe food is okay, but it's nothing special. There are also two other places to get food that are a bit better, but again, nothing special.

    Meh. Roscoes has improved I hear, but I'd cook my own food and go with the minimum food plan if given the chance to do it again.

    Meal plan is required in the dorms and the food is usually bland, especially Friday through Sunday. Normal buffet would be some form of broccoli, some form of chicken, pizza, burgers, pasta, and fries. Sometimes they do theme days where all the food will be from a different region such as Brazilian or Mexican. Very rarely though.

    The options on campus are limited to three eating areas, which all have different times. The Skylight in the Campus Center is highly recommended over the cafeteria.

    There are three main food places on campus. The cafeteria should be avoided. Some food there is great, while the rest might not necessarily be food. There have been real horror stories as far as the cafeteria goes. Roscoe's, which is located in the RWJ dorm, is open from 6 to 11 at night, serving fried food, sandwiches, and ice cream. Roscoe's is a great late night snack place. The Sky, located in the Student Center, is a great option for breakfast and lunch. They have a great breakfast sandwich, as well as other eggs and hash-brown options. For lunch, the fries are good, as well as the paninis, which are delicious.

    There is basically no Greek life and sororities aren't allowed to have a house.

    A couple fraternities and sororities. You won't be looked down on if you're not a part of one and most students aren't. They can be a source of fun and motivation for those who are interested.

    The greek orgs are very different from stereotypical frats and sororities. They do drink, but definitely not as much as TV portrays them out to be. They do actually care about their members' education and helping them succeed into becoming well-rounded people.

    I have not participated in Greek life, but there are several fraternities and sororities that maintain an active social atmosphere around campus with both each other and the general student population.

    It is present. Two big fraternities (DSP and Triangle). There are actually more sororities, but the sororities I think are more local and they are not allowed to have a house, which stinks. It is not terrible for being an engineering school though.

    There are 3 fraternities and 3 sororities on campus. As a member of the Greek community you will participate in a ton of philanthropic events as well as social and educational. 2 of the fraternities have houses but it definitely isn't an Animal House type of atmosphere. Go Greek if you are interested in making friends and connections that last a lifetime.
