    The people that work in Food and Dining are amazing, but the actual options are terrible, and as far as real nutrition..... don’t expect much.

    The Dining Hall sometimes serves food where you literally have no idea what it is, but if you avoid super busy times, it's okay. Downstairs there are more options which are on meal exchange (included on the meal plan), and Jersey Mike's is good if you like subs. They also have a food court-ish area where you can get burritos, mac and cheese, pizza, salad, etc.

    Food and dining is a big part of living on campus because it is in the center of campus. From the Dining hall to the quick pick ups downstairs such as Sono or profs place there is so much variety you will only want to come back.

    The school has mediocre food that's overpriced which is expected at all colleges. But, they have a large variety of items to choose from.

    Sodexo is the name of the food company that Rowan is affiliated with. The dining hall food is good some days and really bad other days. A lot of their food gets burnt and sometimes they don't label the items properly. Also, machine malfunctions are quite common; the ice cream machine has broken 4 or 5 times already and the oven where they make pizza which is usually available everyday has been broken for 3 weeks now.

    The campus has many places to dine and if none of those options suffice, there are several spots just a short walk outside of campus where you can also satisfy your cravings.

    I personally enjoy the food on campus. There are plenty of options all included in your meal plan. My only complaint is that most of the options close down on the weekends leaving you to work around their schedule or fend for food on your own.

    Greek life here isn't as strong as other schools. However, if you do plan on joining a fraternity, there are plenty of them here on campus.

    I am not involved in greek life but a handful of my friends are and they really enjoy being apart of greek life. There are various fraternities and sororities to choose from and they offer many opportunities for prospective members to learn about them.

    Greek Life is big, but not too big. You do not have to be involved in Greeks to have a social life. Frats and sororities take up a lot of time, but you will always have something to do every night.

    Kind of a joke (no offense), but the people involved in it seem happy.

    The Greek life organizations here and diverse and there are many multicultural organizations, as well. All the brothers and sisters carry themselves very well on campus.

    As a member of Greek Life I can tell you that it does not get a good rap prima facie, but when you delve below the surface you find an environment of close bonds and networking opportunities for the future. I am a member of Sigma Pi, but I encourage everyone to join Greek Life regardless of which fraternity or sorority.
