    Food is pretty meh.. I don't care for it much, its basic to poor quality. Good news is the bonus bucks on the meal plan for the campus shop where you can buy food and coffee, and in some dorms you have a kitchen. Those help.

    There is a little to be desired when it comes to the dining halls and food. There isn't much to complain about because this is the food you are given every day of the week, but there is still room for improvement. The times the dining halls are open on the weekends is quite inconvenient. There are only two dining halls on campus and one isn't open on Sundays and the other closes at 4 on Saturday. There are multiple options for meals for each course, but not enough to maintain a rush when everyone has time for each course.

    So many options to go to. You can either stay on campus and eat or there are several restaurants in the downtown Naperville area.

    There are two dining places to eat on campus and a small cafe/store where students can buy food. The dining staff is working on making the food better but there are days that you should avoid the dining hall, like on taco day.

    2 cafeterias are better than one. Variety of food is good, the quality isn't the best. More fresh foods will help.

    I have found it really depends on how you grew up, if mom made a homemade meal every night for dinner, you may have a hard time getting used to it. If you're like me, where your family was always busy and ate when you had time, it's not bad at all. Since the school has so many athletes, they have a lot of healthy food. They are also adding and improving all the dining options and facilities.

    We have academic fraternities and sororities that you can look up online but we do not have the typical houses and what not that most big name state schools have.

    Greek Life is not permitted at this institution. North Central is a private institution and the city of Naperville has a reputation to uphold. So they decided to not permit Greek Life years ago because they feel it would bring disruptions to the community.
