  • The dorms are okay. All first-year students are expected to live in one. However, after the first year, you have the option to move to south campus which I consider…

    Not your usual home cooked meals but they do their best. The staff puts out their specialties and they are usually pretty good. There is great brunch n the weekends. Ernie Davis hall is the king of dining halls on campus and the food is better than the other halls.

    I'm not familiar with the cuisine in Syracuse, does it offer anything unique or just generally good?

    The food is very good on campus, and there is a meal plan that is highly recommended. There are numerous food options not only on campus, but also of campus. There is a Starbucks or a Dunkin' Donuts, so you can arm yourself with either.

Student Responses to Review Topic: Greek Life

    The school is thought to be very dominated by Greek Life, however I don't agree. As someone not in Greek Life, I still have a great social life other things that I'm involved in. Even if you are on the fence about Greek Life, I suggest going through the recruitment process to see if it is for you. If it's not (which is what happened to me) it's totally fine because there is so much else to do here. However, people involved find it very fulfilling and truly seem to love it.

    I'm not personally interested in Greek Life, but from what I have seen, it is a prominent presence on campus and there are plenty of options to those interested.

    Greek life is absolutely everything. It is difficult to put it in words right now. I am not in Greek life, but I love taking part in their events. Obviously, they throw the best parties and have the most fun social gatherings, But they also have an integral push academic awareness and advancement. By attending Greek-sponsored events, I have had the pleasure of meeting Anderson Cooper, Nia Long, Common, KRS-One, Shawn and Marlon Wayans, and several trendy hip-hop artists. Also, despite the cliches, most of the Greek guys are really sweet and approachable. Most of the time, they freely approach the event attendees and strike up mutual, cordial conversion with no obvious attempt to sweep you off your feet or try to hit on you. The conversation is purely sincere. I enjoy it.
