    The food service is great. They have many options and choices for people and also have some known places on campus such as Papa Johns, Chick-fil-a, etc. for when you get tired of the cafe food.

    Northwest missouri state has multiple dining options offered to the students who attend. Many of the students here eat at the student union, but they also have other option such as Chick Fil A , Papa Johns, Einsteins bagels, Starbucks, and Zen.

    You can eat as many times as you want as many times in a day if you have even the basic meal plan which is great. Food is decent.

    There are some decent food choices on the second floor of the union including, Chick-fil-a and Einstein Brothers Bagels. There is a Starbucks located in the library. The Bearcat Commons can get really old really fast, and sometimes the food is not the best. It's also kind of hard to find healthy choices of food on campus.

    I can't really speak much on Greek life, but I do know that they usually are apart of the many big events that go on around campus. There are a good amount to choose from. Greek and non-Greek relations are decent but I think they could be better.

    The Greek life is fantastic. The sororities and fraternities try to stay close to each other and connected so that everyone could get the great experience and unity of Greek life.
