    The dining at the University of Montana is amazing! They cater to every kind of allergen and have extensive vegan and vegetarian options as well. With all of the options they have, at such high quality, UM dining is the best

    There is so much food to choose from that you almost have to sit and question yourself for 5 minutes about what you want to eat today. You can eat at the food hall or you can go to one of the many local restaurants.

    It can be assumed that all cafeteria food produced for thousands of people per day is less than a five star restaurant and UM in no exception. However, UM dining has a high emphasis on locally grown produce (some of which is harvested on campus!) and a large percentage of real, non-commercial foods. The food is always warm, relatively inexpensive, and usually pretty good (especially the gluten-free and vegetarian options).

    Food is for the most part tasty and well prepared. Dining services buys local and organic whenever possible and it shows.

    There are several places to find food on campus which gives you a little bit of variety. If or when you get tired of the food on campus there is and Albertson's close by along with some fast food places.

    Not a prominent force on campus, but those who want to be immersed in a fraternity or sorority are able to get the full experience! Smaller than many public schools.

    There are some great sororities and fraternities located just off campus. They are very involved in campus activities and throw several events of their own.

    The Greek Life is great! Many students come in with stereotypes of sororities and fraternities in their minds, but if anyone takes time to meet the young men and women of the many fraternities and sororities, they will find that the men and women that make up this system are wonderful people. Greeks are very involved in campus activities and in the community in general.

    The Greek system is not as large as some campus. I am a member of the Greek system and it is a ton of fun. It provides all types of opportunities to meet people, network, and get involved. It is not for all people, but I had never planned to join so it can be something to check out.

    The Greek life on campus is very obvious. Almost every week you hear about the fraternities or sororities doing some activity such as the Greek Olympics. The people that participate in them are generally very nice also, which is a good change from the normal.

    NOT the place to go for Greek life. The kids who join Greek life would probably be laughed out of every other university's Greek life system, but I suppose they still have fun.
