Student Responses to Review Topic: Food And Dining

    They have a ton of dining options- and they are incredibly detail oriented, meaning if there is peanuts, milk, soy, or any other allergen in a food- you will know it. There is also many locations and options on how to pay for food.

    The amount of options here are astounding. However, like anything, by second semester it can get a little grating. As long as you're willing to step outside your food comfort zone, you'll always find something worth your time.

    The dining halls at this campus are amazing! Everyone gets sick of the food once in a while, but there are four dining halls, and most of them are really great! There is always a variety of food available from Italian, to Persian, to American, to Latin, and the dining halls are always clean! There are also stations to get food to go, called grab and goes, that are also really good.

    I think CU Boulder has the best dining halls not only in Colorado, but in the country. Our main attraction is the C4C (Center for Community). You swipe in and you have free reign to a buffet of different types of food - Mexican, Italian, American Grill, Persian, Asian, Kosher, and a sushi bar. Along with that there is a large salad station, cereal, and sandwich station. That's my favorite place, but if you're like me living in a dorm off the main campus you can go to the dining hall in your area. In each cluster of dorms on campus is a dining hall, and some dorms actually have their own dining halls. But if you feel like grabbing something quick you can always going to several of the university's Grab and Go location. Aside from everything provided to students on campus, Boulder has great restaurants - many of which are local, small businesses, which are fun to try when you have time to grab a bite on the Hill or Pearl Street

    The food here is strongly a take-it-or-leave-it. Some days it's amazing and others you lose your appetite. They always provide a great alternatives though if the hot dishes don't look appetizing to you. There are also grab-n-goes which have great, yummy options. I haven't gone hungry once since being here.

    They say it's not a huge part of life but you will certainly feel its effects your freshman year. Greek Life is inherently loud so you'll see it and here it. After that, it can take a back burner, and the pressure to join isn't overwhelming.

    I'm not part of the Greek Life here but as far as I have heard it's a great way to meet people and get involved. Greek houses are always hosting fun activities for everyone too.

    Greek Life here is extremely overrated. It is right for some people but it is expensive and many say not worth the time, effort, or money. It literally is like a part time job that costs you thousands. Some people really enjoy it though. Don't think you have to be in a fraternity or sorority to be cool or liked though.

    The greek life is good. There is rushing and stuff for those who are wanting a place to fit in for some money. They have good parties.
