    Much better than any other school I visited. Like most college food, it's not great, but it seriously beats a lot of other universities.

    conserve your flex, at orientation the cafeteria food looks immensely better than it usually does; however, it's not bad at all. it just has its days. i enjoy the dining experiences nonetheless.

    The dining hall is amazing, much better than cafeterias at other colleges. So many different options every day, something for everyone.

    The dining hall (the caf) is better than a lot of colleges in comparison and is very accommodating to people of all diets (I'm a vegetarian and have found lots to eat here). The only thing is, they don't change the variety often so the food selection gets old after a while. The quality of food can be good or okay but is rarely bad. There are a lot of restaurants on campus that take flex (Taco Bell, Pizza Hut, Papa Johns, Chick-fil-A, Subway, Bojangles, ect.). I love the salad place on campus, Wild Greens, as well as Jamba Juice but the hours are terrible. Taco Bell will always have long lines and VERY slow service.

    The food in the dining hall is good to taste, but can get repitive after a while. If you aren't feeling like having the same old food, there are a number of restaurants throughout campus. If you're a southern native, you may know about Bojangles', which is located under Jefferson Suites, one of our many dorms. There are also other fast food chains such as Taco Bell, Starbucks, and Chik-Fil-A.

    The cafeteria food, is tasty, but can be quite repetitive after a while. There are other good places for food on campus such as Pizza Hut, Taco Bell, Bojangles, and the eateries inside the EUC.

    I have yet to eat at the cafe, however, they do send out surveys and coupons to make sure that your experience is above and beyond expectations.

  • Feb-24-2015 I am accepted here and planning to attend soon

    When I toured UNCG for the first time two years ago, only one of the dining halls were open. I was with a group and the food options were home-cooked style foods. I recently went back to UNCG for a tour last summer and I found their fast-food section along with dinning halls to choose from. No complaints about the food!

    I plan to do Greek life next year, but I do know that there is usually a party or two going on during the weekends. UNCG isn't big on Greek life.

    While there is no official Greek housing, the Greeks are able to have a lot of fun and come together to create a very good environment for their members. They also work hard on philanthropy and help sponsor events on campus that are beneficial to all students.

    All of the divine nine except for the iotas are charted on UNCG campus and also all of the honor societies and numerous frats and sororities to choose from that may fit your needs.

    There if you want to be involved, but not a requirement. I have friends in sororities and fraternities on campus that love it.

    I don't know much about Greek Life here, but it seems pretty nice. They're very close knit, but sometimes they stand outside of the EUC and holler at people, which is rather annoying. They also do some really cool events for charity throughout the year.

    Greek life is very big on the UNCG campus, I unfortunately did not take part in this, wish I had. Recommend rushing freshman year for sure.
