    even though truman has its perks, no institution is completely perfect. the one downside is the food served at the dining halls, which i would give a subpar rating. at times, it is the food i want to eat, but other times i rather eat at the multitude of fast food joints on baltimore st. sodexo's food is nothing that i would miss over a home-cooked meal.

    The food provided in the dorms is borderline inedible some days. There's a starbucks and rumors of a Chick-fil-a coming that you can use meals at. The meal plans are expensive and so is all the food worth eating (food in the Student Union Building AKA SUB)

    I am unfortunately a picky eater. College food is never going to be delicious, and if it is, it probably costs more. The SUB has good food though, and you can use meals and dinning dollars there. For hall dining, the sides are usually good, it's the main dishes that are kind of gross. They have a nice salad bar, usually three different kinds of soup, GREAT chocolate cake (when they have it), friendly staff, tons of cereal and drinks, and more random things.

    The food is not amazing, but no cafeteria food is. There is always something for everyone to eat and a lot of people enjoy the food service.

    The food is not very good. There isn't much variety and most of it is bland. I starved while here. On the bright side, no freshman fifteen.

    Lots of people complain about the food on campus, but I don't think it's bad, really. There's a lot of variety, and they make options available for vegan and vegetarian students.

    There are 3 dining halls on campus and each one is within a different residence hall. There are many options to choose from everyday including oriental, grill, pizza, salad, home style cooking, and even vegetarian, non-gluten and non-soy options. The staff is incredibly nice and inviting.

    The dining halls are in three of the dorm buildings here on campus and no matter where you want to go they're not far from wherever you are going to stay. The Student Union Building also has a few places to eat. In the dorms that don't have dining halls they have convent stores that are basically like gas station convent store. They're really cool and have everything you could want to eat or snack on.

    GREEK LIFE WHOO! I am in a sorority, and I love it and my sisters however Truman is cracking down hard on Greek Life as a whole and there are too many unnecessary rules to have much fun. There are a lot of Greeks who are awesome and some way to focused on stereotype/gossiping.

    You do not have to be in Greek life to be apart of a sorority. I'm in a non-Greek sorority and love it, we still mix with Greek life, but don't have to follow their rules.

    It exists. Most people in Truman are not involved in greek life as most people here are not partiers but greek life is available.

    I have no interest in Greek life. I know there are sororities and fraternities on campus, but that's about all I know.

    There are 5 panhellenic sororities and over 10 fraternities on campus. There are many opportunities through Greek Life including scholarships, homecoming, Greek Week and special events.

    Greek life is great at Truman. We hold so many events, give back to the community, have a ton of fun but most importantly, we are making the future leaders of our great nation by becoming brothers, sisters and well rounded individuals.

    I pledged last semester and it was the best decision I ever made in life. Lots of sororities and fraternities to become a part of.

    There is a large amount of students who are a part of greek life. There are tons of options for boys and girls and I've heard great things. If Greek life isn't for you that's fine though too, I am not apart of any sorority and don't feel the need to be there is no pressure at Truman to join one.

    Greek Life is awesome! It's a really great way to meet new people and you actually feel like you belong to something. I will warn you though, it is a HUGE commitment. You will be pressed for time and there are many requirements after you rush in order to be activated. It's not all fun and games, but it definitely can be.
