    Food at the University of Dayton is very good. I have never had a problem with the food here. Every Sunday, Marycrest has brunch, which is delicious. There are plenty of food options here on campus like sushi, mexican, and mongolian.

    Marycrest has great wraps and awesome workers. VWK has a ton of options so you never get bored. The Emporium (The Empo) is a great quick stop before classes. There's always fresh fruit and veggies. Plus, you can even use your meal plan for milkshakes at the Hangar in KU, the student union.

    There's a reason UD is nationally ranked for healthy students; the food here is healthy! While there are options to indulge in (chicken fingers, the best french fries in the state of Ohio, and who can forget the legendary Marycrest Monster Cookie?!), there are also many healthy options that are delicious as well. If you go up the hill to VWK, you will think that you're traveling around the world. They offer your traditional meals such as subs, salads, and soup, as well as a Mongolian grill, a burrito stand, and a sushi bar. With several different options to satisfy whatever craving you would like, UD is the place to be when it comes to dining services.

    Plenty of choices. Even a Qdoba type place and a sushi bar. Sometimes the less popular dishes sit out for a while and get dry but the majority of the food is great.

    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.

    It is present, but not essential! People definitely do it and love it, but you don't have to be involved to have a social life.

    Greek life is a big aspect at UD. However, that being said, you do not by any means have to go greek to have a strong group of friends. While there are a lot of people in greek life, it does not majorly affect your social life. I am involved in greek life and currently life with three people who are not affiliated with greek life, and two that are in a different sorority than me. Unlike some schools where greek life is huge, all of the greek organizations get along with each other. Greek life is what you want to make it; it can be a huge aspect of your life, a small aspect, or not an aspect at all.

    Greek life isn't huge, however if you're part of it it's great. Not too exclusive at all. Greeks and non-greeks get along well.

    Students that participate in Greek Life are a minority at Dayton, but it is available if you want it to be part of your college experience. Greeks and non-Greeks get along well.

    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.
