    There are many food options on campus, as well as a variety of fast food options just off campus.

    I loved on campus food. There were 3 different dining halls that you go to and they all have different foods and have mini-restaurant type things that offer tons of options. There are also other restaurants located in dorm buildings, academic buildings and the MU which offer amazing food when you are on the go or in between classes.

    Dorm food is not the greatest but honestly better than other colleges options. They have better on campus food options through their Orange Rewards Program.

    The dining hall has pretty good variety for having three different dorm dining centers on campus. However, if you don't keep track of what you eat, the freshman 15 will be a real thing.

    It starts out tasting alright, but after a while, it gets old. This is the same for any dorm food. If you want better food, eat at Arnold Dining or West.

    Overall the food is really good. There are 3 dining centers on campus all with several different options. On the weekends about half of the options are closed which can be annoying. The quality of the food is usually really good, and the prices tend to be reasonable.

    If you live on campus, you can purchase a dining plan, which will purchase food at any of the dining centers, markets, and a couple coffee shops on campus. The cafeterias are like mall food courts, with multiple restaurants to choose from per dining center. There are three dining centers spread across the campus, each of them offering different choices. There are also little markets to purchase your own food from if you want to cook in your dorm, such as Cascadia, Every Bean's a Good Bean (EBGB's), and The Main Squeeze. Bing's is a little cafe in the middle of campus that serves hot sandwiches and calzones, as well as coffee and other snacks. Across the street is the Memorial Union building, where you can spend Orange Rewards at various restaurants such as Carl's Junior, Panda Express, and Togo's. Orange Rewards is the equivalent of using your ID card as a debit card. Any amount of money (above $100) is placed on the card and it works until the money runs out, whereas the Dining Plan is for the entire term and only one of four different amounts of money can be placed on it. However, you can raise or lower your dining plan later in the term. The overall quality of the food is worthy of 4 stars, in my opinion, but some restaurants are better than others.

    Being apart of Greek life is huge at Oregon State. There are so many Greek organizations on campus and we are continuing to grow. Greek life is about 10% of our campus which may seem small but considering there are a lot of graduate students, older students coming back to school as well as commuter students. Greek life is a great resource in helping students strive in college and helps create lasting memories.

    It's a wonderful part of the university. They give back to the community and have higher average GPA when compared to the university as a whole.

    Greek Life is a great opportunity to be a part of. It is a group of people that you can go to for anything (school or personal), I am part of the greek life and I have already made so many new friends and it is great because most of the girls have the same major as you, therefore you have the same classes and get together to work on assignments that one person or the other may be having trouble with.

    There is more than the housed greek life so get educated and informed before you make a decision and do what everyone may be doing! There are lots of multicultural, academic, service, engineering, science, business and other interest related sororities/fraternities you could benefit from.
