    Compared to some colleges the amount of food places really aren't that bad, but they always close super early, so if you want food on the weekends you only have at best two options.

    Dining options are very limited. You have many places to choose during the week like ABP, Papa Johns, Star Bucks, Wendy's, etc on campus along with a good amount of options off campus but during the weekends only 1 on campus option is actually available. Dalton Kitchen isn't the greatest foods but i don't have any complaints, just know every weekend you will be eating there.

    The dining halls at Radford have many different choices. There's the more common restaurants like Chick fil-a and Starbucks. Then there's the Radford dining located in Dalton.

    Dalton gives you the Dalton big five. You will know what it means once you eat there. But we have Starbucks, Chick Fil A, a Grill place, a salad place, frozen yogurt, papa johns, and au bon pain. Subway is across the road and several places deliver and youre in walking distance to other food places as well.

    Radford University has many options for food. There is Dalton Dining Hall, which is your average campus cafeteria that offers new dishes every day and is a buffet style. There is also Wendy's, Papa Johns, Au Bon Pain, Ollo Sushi, Chik Fil' A, Starbucks, Austin Grill, Wild Greens, Pink Berry, and the New River Grill House. The New River Grill House is one of the fancier and slightly healthier options on campus that is located in the basement of Muse Hall. I don't recommend going there every day. Many freshmen like being able to get a steak on campus, but it is the most expensive place to eat on campus. It really takes a toll on your flex dollars.

Student Responses to Review Topic: Greek Life

    Greek life is honestly pretty bad. Do not expect extravagant Greek life with huge chapter houses. Fraternity houses are not allowed to have their letters on their house which is usually just a house that's leased by a Realtor. Brotherhoods have lots of cliques and don't get involved in much. They have a very bad stereotype but you will make very close friends. You are more paying for party's because there isn't much for them to do. It is 50/50, some people absolutely love it while the others skim by.

    There are so many options for you to go greek at Radford. We take pride in our greek life and have some of the best leaders on campus affiliated in a sorority or fraternity.

    Only 20% of the campus is Greek, so you don't have to go Greek in order to fit in. I am a member of the Greek life here, and I love the unity and activeness it brings!

    Greek life is pretty big here, for a campus that isn't affiliated with them. You don't have to be perfect to get into a sorority or a fraternity, it's better to just be oneself and go with the flow.
