    Commons might not be the best, but there's aways a lot of options to choose from. Hungry Minds is pretty good, and a Chik-fil-a is coming next semester.

    In the Commons, the food for many of the stations is the same every day while it rotates and changes for others. The food in commons is nice and is the more common, everyday food. There is also food in the Bistro, which is a bit more classy food. There is a wide range of drinks and they have soy or almond milk (I can't remember which one. I only drink dairy milk) and have chocolate, skim, and 2% milk. They have water, soda, tea, and juices available. There are plenty of seats and there are 5 dining areasto choose from.

    They have lots of choices! I've seen a lot of Vegan options added as well. It helps give you energy to make it through the day.

    Jack Daniels wings and the chicken noodle soup are some of the best things here. We even had lobster night once. The only problem is on the weekends when breakfast is served until 3:15 and half of the dining hall is closed. Food is noticeably better on open house days, but is all around pretty decent.

    Salisbury University houses one of the greatest cafeterias on the East Coast! With 10 different food choices, Commons will give you every food you desire. SU students have enjoyed Lobster dinners, Thanksgiving dinners, and Make Your Own Pizza nights. Along with Commons, Cool Beans and Gulls Nest give students variety when they don't want cafeteria foods.

    Maybe 20% of students are in Greek life, it is not that big at Salisbury but they throw down and their events are pretty fun. Great way to make friends.

    The University has several different fraternities and sororities to join. Interest meetings and events are announced on a daily basis and they have all been very friendly.
