    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.

    It's alright. Personally, I've heard students complain about the price, but hey, take advantage of it's location. Since it's based right in town, you can just carpool to Chipotle and grab that delicious bowl of Mexican food for around the same price.

    The cafeteria is somehow small but it fits its purpose. They sell great food that is cooked right in the moment. Different menus are made every day, so that you will definitely not get bored eating the same thing. Club activities are also performed in the cafeteria.

    Food service in the campus is supreme. There are available pantries, snacks, meals and consumable spread out throughout the campus bounds. A spectrum of food choices are served with convenience, whether a student would just want to grab a snack or have a full blown meal.

    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.

    There are a couple of greek associations, but none of them interest me personally. It's up to the student, really.
