    There are places to eat nearly all around campus with so many different options. Whether you want a full meal at Chick-Fil-A in the student union or a quick snack at the Root in North Classroom building, there is an option for you nearby.

    The food on campus is amazing and affordable. There is even an "orange" choice that helps a student identify healthy food options!

    OSU offers several chain fast food options such as which wich, Chick-fil-a, and Johnny Rockets. While also having options that may not be well known but provide healthy and tasty meals.

    Food on campus is expensive for sure, but there are so many delicious options. In our student union, we have Jamba Juice, Chick-Fil-A, Johnny Rockets, and many more. Usually I go to Kerr Drummond for food. They have a grocery store, Sub Shop, Italian, and Bar-B-Que. The best part though is the Tapingo app, you can order your food with your meal plan and have it prepared early,

    the food on campus isn't great and there aren't a lot of options for eating dinner. a lot of the locations on campus have odd hours and aren't open for dinner except for 3-4 locations. this makes eating on campus difficult and i recommend buying your own food and cooking in the lounges.

    OSU has a meal plan that is set up to be a finite balance for the semester. There are a range of balances to choose from, based on the type of eater or eating habits you would have. However, very little of said balance will roll over to the next semester so keep that in mind. All of the money going to your meal plan is paid for through your financial aid.

    Average cafeterias at the dorms but OkState has the largest Student Union in the United States and is full with many different restaurants and coffee shops and such.

Student Responses to Review Topic: Greek Life

    Greek life is huge at Oklahoma State. This is a great way to meet people and make life long friends. For guys it is also cheap. The cost of being in a fraternity (which includes house bill, food bill, and dues) is actually slightly less than living in a dorm with a meal plan. Besides the money aspect though, Greek life consists of all different types of people and you are sure to find others with similar interest, beliefs and values!

    Greek Life is a relatively big portion of the University, it can help to have a recommendation from an older member of your chapter to introduce you to new clubs and activities that you may not have initially joined. Also, it can lead you to more success as many chapters have required study hours in order to help incoming freshman especially when coming to a new place.

    I do not know a whole lot about Greek life, however, I do know that a lot of people who become friends at OSU met in Greek life.

    Greek life is big here and I'm not just saying that because I am in a sorority. I love the greek community here and I'm friends with people in all the houses, not just the one that I am in.

    OSU has plenty of sororities and fraternities to choose from, but unlike some campuses, there is no hard feelings between those who are Greek and those who aren't. At some universities, there's such a huge division between Greek and Not Greek, but at OSU, nobody cares whether you are or aren't.

    I am not a part of the Greek Life but I have some friends who are. They love it and keep asking me to join it, but it's just not for me. However, there are many frats and sororities for students that are interested in that kind of thing. They are the ones who put on several events, including homecoming. Campus link is where you will also find the information on the Greek Life at OSU.
