    Neubig is probably the best spot to eat, but ther are also other options such as the bistro which is also very good I just didn't enjoy it as much.

    The Spring 2015 semester is going to be unlimited entries going into the two dining halls. There are other places to eat on campus, but you will have to pay for them or use the college money called Dragon Dollars.

    The food is great. Only down side is the portioning system that they have implemented at one of the biggest dining halls but hey that place is all you can eat! So portion me up baby I'm coming back for seconds and thirds!

    The food was always fresh and well prepared, and there was a decent variety. My only complaint is that there was only one vegetarian place on campus, and I would have liked more options.

    Although I miss my Mom's Caribbean cooking, Cortland has a wide variety of places to eat. On campus, we have Dunkin Donuts, Friendly's and Subway. The dining halls provide an enormous variety of meals - wing night; pasta night, hamburgers, wraps and sandwiches. The food at Cortland is so great. I remember the first time I had it. It's honestly like going out to eat at every restaurant there is night after night after night.

    Cortland has exceptional variety and quality when it comes to school. Besides the main cafeteria, which always includes a variety of food so you are bound to find something you like, there are dining places all over campus so that no matter where you are, quality food isn't far away. From Dunkin' Donuts, to Subway, to Friendly's, among a variety of other places, students will always be able to find what they are craving.

    There are numerous Greek Life for boys and girls. Freshman cannot join until their second semester, however many do join in the second semester. Hazing is not tolerated at Cortland, but the are also very friendly.

    The campus has all different types of Greek life; social, multicultural, and service sororities and fraternities. We even have a local sorority!

    There is a big Greek presence on campus. Many people choose to be involved in it, myself not included though. I have found many friends outside of Greek life and didn't feel it was a necessary part of my college career.

    Greek life is big, but I really did not take interest into it only because of sports, and money. Plus they are not to nice and only look out for one another, but thats when they are together. When they are separate individually they are cool people.

    There are quite a few sororities and fraternities on campus. I can't give much information on them because I am not in one.

    Greek Life is something that is always an option, but there is no pressure to be involved in it. There are three recognized fraternities and about seven to ten sororities on campus. Cortland is not a college where Greek Life is pushed; you will have some friends that are involved and some that are not.
