    I don't have any complaints about the food served here. They have a really nice salad bar that they keep filled with fresh ingredients daily and even change the options sometimes so you don't get bored with the same vegetables. The shrimp and salmon served here are always good and they offer food and snacks from other cultures sometimes which is really cool because you get to try new things. I do hate that the food is so expensive for commuters though, I live on campus and have a meal plan so I buy my friends food quite often. I have the lowest level plan offered and I receive a discount on my food but I still have way more money in my account than what I'll be able to spend on my own.

    Tully's, our campus dining hall, always has new foods to try every day! And if what they're serving isn't really your thing, there's always pizza daily! Tully's also has convenience store items such as toothpaste, bandaids, and anything else you might need to grab quickly! There's fresh soups and salads prepared every day, and everything has allergen info printed on the tags, so you won't have to be extra cautious.

    Tully's is not that great. Students have a saying that you get a Tully-ache after you eat there. I lived off campus so I barely ate there but a few times that I did I did get a stomach ache once or twice. You won't starve though, that's for sure. There is a lot of variety to pick from (Deli, salad bar, BBQ/fried, entrees, sushi, pastries...etc)

    Tully's is the only on campus dining hall. The food is pretty good but it is not mom's home cooking. There are 6 levels of a meal plan, 1 being the smallest amount if you feel like you eat light or eat one meal a day and 6 being the highest if you participate in competitive sports and need to eat a lot of calories in a day.

    The foods okay but expensive to commuters. Most people say it's not a home cooked meal but it'll get you through till break.

    I know nothing about on-campus dining, but the food off-campus is really great! Campus is right by a big shopping area, and there are tons of options.

    The food is super expensive, especially for a commuter and it isn't really all that good either. Can't even finish the meals I get.

    I will start off by saying yes that if it is your first year there will be a likely chance that weight gain is possible because for one you don't exactly know how the food provided is cooked and or you don't know when to eat because of the overwhelming feeling of stress that takes over your body due to classwork. However, if you just take the time to plan out your day and daily food intake you should be fine followed by some aerobic or anaerobic exercises. There are times where you could be eating just because your neighbor is eating or everyone around you is eating; everyone has a different time of eating, whereas others eat more or less than others, it is perfectly normal/

    There's a girls sorority but they are not like the traditional sorority you would imagine. Career and community oriented. Do not come here for the Greek Life, come for academics.

    There are few Greek life clubs. University Park has more of that than the berks campus, but there some. If the Greek life is important to you then by all means please create one, the more activities, events, and clubs available the better life is for you.

    There is no greek life because this is a branch campus. They have greek life at Penn State's Main campus if you choose to pledge.
