Reviews Dorm Life

  • The campus is VERY social. Everyone is willing to meet everyone. I recommend Daniels Hall your freshman year, especially if you don't know anyone. It is the most social dorm…

    The food is ok and pretty bland. They try and make things seem a lot better during visitation and other events but it's not that great. There are other alternatives around campus like chinese food and chipotle.

    The food was just okay when I first began, but overtime became redundant and a little unappetizing. You should be fine as long as you steer clear of raw onions (they try to put raw onions in everything) and establish a safety net. Most of the stuff you try there will be nasty 7 times out of 10, so find one or two things that are consistent so that you won't starve (mine were lunch wraps and stir fry). Also, know the hours the food courts are open. They are not always open (or are open but don't have food) during regular meal times.

    The food is delicious and with one swipe, you can have unlimited food, but the choices get boring after a while. There are only two main dining courts on campus that you can use your swipes at (there is an additional place in DAAP and Stadium View, but DAAP is really inconvenient unless you are a DAAP student and Stadium View has limited hours and food). The food will fill you up and once in a while they will have the food you really had a craving for and it is delicious, but the meal plans are extremely expensive and the options are very limited.

    Good restaurants on and off campus. I usually eat breakfast and dinner at home to save on costs.

    The cafeterias are pretty good and there are always many different options. From asian stir fry, a salad bar, a sandwich station, Italian station, and a few stations that vary from day to day, there was never a time when I couldn't find something good to eat.

    There is so much food around campus and on campus. Since UC in an urban area there is plenty to choose from; from Indian to soups and salads.

    I didn't think I was cut out for Greek Life at first and I heard so many vicious rumors about Greek Life. But, now that I am in it, going Greek was one of the best decisions I ever made! I met so many cool people and now I always have something to do. The people are so nice and it's something more people should consider. However, I also have a lot of friends who are not Greek. Greek Life is there if you want to go after it, and Cincinnati has some pretty well-known fraternities and sororities, but you can also just as easily ignore everything having to do with it.

    I was on the Women's Soccer team at UC and was involved with the athletic department so I do not know a lot about the greek life, but it is definitely growing and I have heard nothing but great things from my friends who have been apart of it.

    I'm involved with Greek Life and love it. Every chapter is there for each other making the 10 sorority houses and 22 frat houses all very close.

    There are several different faternity and sorority organizations on campus for a student to choose from. The student can choose one to where he or she fits great.

    Greek Life is not major at UC, but definitely can be found in many places on campus. Greek houses line Clifton Avenue which is directly across from UC and the hold a huge parade during Homecoming week.

    There are plenty of sororities and fraternities available at UC! They are always doing something to give back to the community or even have the rest of the school population join them at a fun party.

    Pretty active. I have met some really cool people that are in fraternities and sororities, and they do some awesome work on and off campus.
