    there's a lot of options! bruff, the dining hall, has hamburgers, pizza, sandwiches, salads, etc. daily as well as different options daily. the lbc has a food court, which has a lot of options and might be a little bit of the reason why i chose tulane, oops. you can also get food at loyola, and your meal plan comes with a little bit of money to spend at off campus restaurants or order in.

    bruff is not good or bad, but you will get sick of it quickly. loyola's dining hall is also open to tulane students, and has a decent vegetarian bar, but is otherwise very similar to bruff. the lbc has some nice options for lunch, but requires wavebucks or actual money. the food truck on campus is a good option for when its beautiful outside and you want to sit in pocket park or one of the many quads around campus. also bruff-to-go has really good made-to-order pasta at dinner time, which is great when you don't want to go to regular bruff (just don't lose your tokens!). on-campus dining is just ok, so you really have to go off campus to get great food.

    You can access Loyola's cafeteria, which is amazing. Bruff, our dining hall, has lots of options but is lacking in taste. You'll probably eat french fries or salad most nights. Food court is kind of expensive, but has basic options. City Diner is the best late night place; try the cheese sticks.

    A meal plan is required for all first- and second-year students living on-campus. Although this is a good idea in theory, there is a single price for the three choices of meal plan, which is not very helpful if a student wants to cook for themselves more often or just eats in Bruff much less often than provided by the meal plan. Not to mention, the food in Bruff is not completely up-to-par.

    The food at the cafeteria, Bruff is pretty average. You may like it at first but you grow to hate it. There is also a food court are with places like Panda Express, Byblos, Baja Fresh, sushi, bagels, etc. You get credited a certain amount of money called WaveBucks to spend there per semester from your meal plan. There is also a similar system called NOLABucks which can be used at participating restaurants off campus. The university next door, Loyola, has a better cafeteria with better quality food and selection. You can use your swipes for the cafeteria at Bruff at the Loyola cafeteria or Luff as well--definitely try it.

    This is hard, because on campus food is okay, while off campus food is unreal. I'd average 3 and 5 stars for 4.

    Could be better, could be a lot worse. They do incorporate a lot of traditional New Orleans fare which is fantastic, and they make an effort to provide for students that are lactose intolerant, vegan, or have a gluten allergy.

    easy to get involved with and not extremely exclusive. as someone not in greek life, i can still go to frat parties and have many friends in sororities/frats. only about 30% of students are in greek life, so you won't have issues finding people not in it if that's not your scene.

    Greek life is becoming a large part of the campus. At least half of the students rush in January.

    Hazing is found in EVERY fraternity, and many sororities. I would not recommend Tulane Greek Life. It is not centered around what Greek Life is supposed to be focussed on- very superficial.

    Greek life is definitely present, but it's not overpowering. What's also nice is that pledging doesn't start until the spring, so you have all of fall to make friends outside of the sorority.
