    Awesome options and delicious food, with good options of meal plans that provide plenty of food throughout the semester. There are no on-campus chain restaurants, but there are many many options about a minute walk (if that) from campus on Brown Street.

    Rated by Princeton Review as one of the best college campuses for food, each residential building offers its own selection of food. Most have a rotational food change too, offering variety in the dorm food that keeps me from getting bored of the same meal.

    The food here is really good but by the end of the year you start to get tired of it (aka it lacks some variety). With that being said, there is a road right outside of campus with all kinds of restaurants in case you get tired of campus food or just want some Starbucks to help with finals.

    The food on campus is great there are many different options to suite everyone's needs and preferences. The staff takes surveys so the food is always changing for the better if people have complaints. Just the street from campus is a ton of affordable restaurants and some take your student ID so you dont need cash.

    As far as dorm food, Dayton has to be the best you can get. Friendly staff, along with the large variety of food offered makes being on a meal plan bearable. But if needed, walking distance away are other restaurants.

    You haven't lived until you've had a sandwich at the Runway or a Hot Flyer from Marycrest. The Empo is great for late-night ice cream cravings, too!

    There is Greek life on campus for those interested, I personally don't know much about it. Not huge, but there for those who want that experience.

    Greek Life is definitely growing on campus, but in no way affects the way that every single UD student feels connected.

    It's not too big at Dayton, but there's still Greek life so you can rush. However, freshmen cannot rush until second semester!

    Greek like doesn't determine what friends you have/social status, but it is available.

    Greek life is fun if you are part of it, but it is not one of those campuses where one needs to be in one to make friends. A small percentage of the students are in a greek organization, but the sense of community at Dayton is so overwhelming that everybody is friends with everybody else.

    Greek Life isn't big, so it's not like you have to be involved to have a life. If you are, it's not a big deal either so it's really what you're motivated to do.
