    So many different options, and if you don't like the on campus options, City Ave has at least ten restaurants within 10 minutes of campus.

    I wasn't able to have a meal here during my visit, but the dining hall had a very good selection of food. There is a convenience store on campus and one other restaurant. The surrounding area has businesses where you can find a good meal. I was told, however, that the Hawk Wrap is a must for any St. Joseph's student.

    The food here is not the greatest, but it gets the job done. The proximity to off-campus dining is definitely a plus, and all the restaurants in Center City are at your fingertips.

    Dining is nothing special. It is all you can eat which range from pizza to cake to salad to fruit and all foods under the rainbow but, the food itself does not taste that amazing. The food tastes like something you could make on your own, without the supervision of you mother or grandmother, or anyone. It is nothing special but there is a variety of foods to eat.

    Campion Dining Hall is the bane of my existence at Saint Joseph's. Sub-par food options, limited variety, and even worse hours create a sour spot on an otherwise grade A experience.

    Saint Joseph's University fully recognizes fraternities and sororities on campus. These organizations are given full support by the University, including financially and with a full-time Greek advisor.

    I do not know much about the Greek life because I am not a part of sororities and did not plan to be in any when I entered college but based on what I have heard from those that are a part of Greek Life, enjoy it very much. They feel connected to each and everyone of their members and love this life.

    Jesuit school reduces greek life to the level of a normal club which is extremely unfortunate. Sororities are perceived much better than Frats, which sometimes are looked down upon in general. In my opinion, greek life is what you make of it.

    There are no greek houses on campus but there are plenty of active sorority and fraternities. There is even an honors co-ed business frat.

    Its not a big deal if you don't get involved in the greek life because there are plenty of other people who aren't.

    I am not personally aware of the Greek life but I know that it is not popular at SJU. There are professional Greek-life organizations but other than that, there aren't houses for Greek members to live in.
