    I have only been to the Alexandria campus. The food is great, however if you want something different and you do not want to lose your parking space, there is a number of selections in walking distance.

    I don't really buy food from the campus but from what I heard, it's actually quite tasty and they have a Starbucks inside as well so that's a plus there!

    The food options on campus are limited and fairly expensive in comparison to other places, but the food is still really good with a wide variety of options. There are also several restaurants and food establishments located nearby off campus, so there is always that option.

    The food is good. There is a good variety to choose from. The commons area is very nice to sit and eat and study or just meet new friends. There are large windows with a lake outside it. Lots of birds to watch so it is very tranquil. I enjoy going here to eat and rest between classes or prepare for my next class. If you are in a hurry there are vending machines with snacks and drinks.

    NOVA does not have Greek Life but to be honest everyone is like family and you get close to a lot of regular people on campus, and if you're looking for parties or hang outs, everyone is also hanging out with their NOVA friends doing something whether they are study groups, barbecues, road trips, parties, or group activities such as competitive sports games.

    There isn't much of a Greek Life here, but I do have a friendly acquaintance who keeps on boasting about how he's a Greek god because he was born there in Greece; he makes up for the Greek Life really.
