    It's college food. All you can eat dining halls are exactly what you expect from mass cooked food. Dining venues do have some fun events.

    There are numerous dinning halls and places to eat on campus! There is always options and that's what I love about the school. There's even a subway on campus! Really is there anything more or better that I could say?

    The food is fine the first year but after that, you better get used to cooking for yourself. Its repetitive and fattening. If you have the will power to go to the gym, please do so.

    After living on campus for years, the food becomes repetitive. That being so, even at home, I get sick of mom's meatloaf, so all you have to do is have a little creativity in regards to mixing it up!

    There are several different locations to get food on campus. There are two large dining halls, a restaurant/dining hall in the main campus. There are also stores and hidden coffee shops and snack areas like Tim Hortons where you can grab a coffee or a bagel, or star bucks. The choices for food are endless. There is so much and it is all you can eat buffet style. Never as good as a home cooked meal, but it definitely does the trick and satisfies those cravings.

    The meal plans are a bit pricey, but the food isn't bad. You get a lot of variety, and the people in charge of the food appear to listen to student suggestions.

    The food is good and there is a Tim Horton's and Subway on campus. But, as with any food the same food does get old after a while. However, there are many different places to eat so the choices are endless.

    Greek life is a choice that everyone if you can afford it chose to partake of! They do so much around the campus and around the community that you'll feel like superman or superwoman or something. They donate time and work to numerous charities and organizations. They put on shows, performances and many extracurricular activities to stay involved and to raise awareness. They are really always doing something that helps out another group of people. It's quite beautiful really.

    Roughly 13% of the student body is involved in Greek life, so there is a presence, yet it is not overwhelming. The Greek life here are mainly involved in philanthropic work and each have their own individual causes that are the focus of their efforts. It is refreshing to see students my age working to better the world instead of simply do the Animal House thing, although they do still host mixers and parties.

    There is absolutely NO HAZING on this campus. When a Greek Organization is found to be guilty of this they are shut down.

    I would definitely recommend joining Greek life. I joined a sorority my freshman year, and it's one of the best decisions that I've ever made. Greek life is a great way to meet now people, and it even looks good on your future job applications.
