    The food at the open house was great, and I can only imagine the meal plans are just as good. There are also places all around Boston to eat out.

    There are a ton of places around campus to grab food, whether it's the campus food court or one of the many restaurants around campus, you will never fall short of choices.

    The food on campus is provided by an outside service Sodexo, and the biggest complaint is the big price tag on most of the food. In some cases things like chips and yogurts are priced four times higher than the prices you'd find at nearby grocery stores, so many people only eat when there's no other choice. The only cafe on campus that's worth the prices is Cafe 73 in the same building as the library. Their sandwiches, salads, and Starbucks are absolutely delicious!

    Although the dining on campus does not offer a wide selection of choices, there are thousands of places to eat in the city that are just minutes away from Suffolk. Students are required to have a meal plan if they choose to live on campus, which can be used at the student's dining hall, along with any other on-campus dining spots in academic buildings and the library. However, having dining halls in both 150 Tremont Street and Miller Hall is very convinient for students, especially in dangerous weather.The cafe in 73 Tremont Street is indefinitely the best on-campus food at the university; they offer a signature salad bar, along with a pressed sandwich bar, which allows students to truly customize their meals. The cafe is also home to Starbucks, a college student's favorite spot to grab a coffee or pastry on the go.

    As most other colleges the food is not the best, but a dining plan isn't going to keep me from going to a school.

    I'm a commuter so I would not know about campus food (although I have not heard good things about it), however, there is PLENTY of delicious food all around Boston to enjoy. I highly recommend Snappy Sushi and Georgetown Cupcake...both on Newbury Street. There is plenty of Chipotle and Panera to enjoy as well!

    Not much of a greek life. I was disappointed a bit too, but you soon get over it, because it offers so many things that are much cooler.

    I never been apart of the Greek Life. However Suffolk does have Greek life for both guys and girls, and from what I've herd from my friends who are a part of Greek life. Its really easy to join and a very rewarding experience.
