    Looks like good variety of offerings. A number of food outlets in cafe besides the school cafe food.

    Each dorm has their own dining hall. If you live in the dorm, you're required to get a meal plan. If you live in the apartments, you don't have to buy a meal plan. You must buy one if you want to eat in the dorms or other dining places though. *You'll be charged extra in the dining halls. The dorms also have NightOwl which is open from around 9pm (I think) to 2 am. They offer milkshakes, burgers, fries, mac and cheese bites, chicken tenders, and other food for students. There's also other dining choices but they're more expensive. The most popular place to eat other than dining halls is the Marketplace which is a place with a bunch of different restaurants like Chinese food, Indian food, Red Mango, Tully's, Starbucks, etc.

    Compared to other college's food it is actually pretty good. That being said the overall quality compared to regular food is mediocre at best. There are hours during the day (3-4 PM) where the dining halls offer less options because they are between meals and it is difficult to eat. Over the course of the semester the food options decrease which can make the food very repetitive and make people have a distaste to it. Overall the food isn't terrible but its also not great.

    I lived in CIW, so naturally I ate at the CIW dining hall most, but in my opinion, their food was not very good. Overall, the food at Binghamton is not that good. I usually found myself eating the same two things for the whole semester because there was a lot of things I just couldn't stomach. The Marketplace has somewhat better food, depending on what you like, but if you're from NYC like me and homesick for some good pizza, the pizza at the Marketplace isn't that great, and neither is CIW pizza. The closest thing to NY pizza is at Hinman (they have a brick oven), although it is still not good food.

    The food is mediocre at best. I would've given it 3 stars but its so repetitive and the workers are super slow. I wish there were more cafes on campus.

    Sodexo is the company that provides the food at our dining halls. It's not exactly the best food, but it's still edible. The company has upgraded its food quality since the last year (at least for Hinman). I find that the quality is a little different at each dining hall. Personally, I like the C4 dining hall the best; more choices and overall quality is the best. Appalachian Dining Hall doesn't have the best food, but it has the best view on campus! If you're willing to compromise food quality, you definitely want to eat there often during the Fall. You get a great picture of the campus and a fantastic feel for Autumn with the different leave colors.

    Sodexo isn't amazing, but they don't suck either, and they are very willing and able to accommodate different diets. They could do better in the health food department, but overall, the food isn't bad.

    The dining halls are okay. There are a lot of options (and a lot of dining halls) to choose from. A brand new food court just opened and it blows everything else away. Fantastic.

    There are many social, and business fraternities and sororities on campus however they don't overtake the campus. You do not need to be in a fraternity or sorority to be able to party.

    Our school is 11% Greek. If you're interested in it, it's there, but if not you won't notice it much. By no means are we Greek or geek.

    Greek life is pretty prevalent, but you can learn to have fun without being Greek. Just join organizations and clubs to meet friends.
