    The food and dining on campus has a large range. We have the Titan Dining Room which has three meals a day. They provide a bunch of different foods. They have a salad bar, fruit bar, and also a sandwich station. We also have an on campus Subway with excellent service. Next to subway is our little diner. They make the best grilled cheese, hamburgers, and chicken wings. Also on campus is a Starbucks, which is a big hit!

    I personally enjoy the food. It is not perfect, but what do you expect? The annoying part are the hours the dining hall is open on the weekends. Very ridiculous it doesn't open until 10:30, but we are used to getting up on weekdays by 8:00. Two and a half hours without food in the morning makes me nausea. And way less choices on the weekends. I feel bad for the kids from out of state who are stuck here every weekend!

    The universities food has been changing through my past years at the university. We got a brand new dining hall with more meal optitions and also a subway and coffee shop added to our cafe. The food is getting better and provides more optitions for any picky eaters.

    University of Detroit Mercy has a main dining hall which serves buffet style food. Everyday they will have a fresh salad bar, fresh deli sandwich line, and pizza. The hot buffet food changes each meal. Next door to the dining hall is Subway, Starbucks, and the Loft. The loft serves hot cooked food such as chicken sandwiches, chicken strips, french fries, hamburgers, grilled cheese, and philly cheesesteaks. On campus, there is also a Simply To Go station inside the library, dining hall, and the fitness center. These stations have ready to go food like sandwiches, fruit cups, bagels, soup, drinks, snack bags, etc. for students on the go. The fitness center also has a small place called Tommy's which makes panini sandwiches and fresh smoothies.

    The food is okay. Too much of it though will not be nice to your stomach. Some meals are better than others. It's campus food.

    The food is terrible quality and very unhealthy. Oftentimes there are no healthy options available for students. The hours and availability of food suppliers on campus is inconsistent and undependable.

    greek life is pretty outdated as compared to big schools like michigan state university and michigan. they try their best. without the greeks though, there would be no social aspect (as far as parties go) on this campus. the fraternities are the ones with houses and sororities have no houses because i guess in detroit it is illegal to have more than 6 girls living in a house together.

    The Greek life is prevalent at the University of Detroit Mercy. There are frat houses and sorority houses off campus. If one is interested in Greek Life then U of D is a good environment for it.

    There are three sororities and fraternities on campus. There are three fraternity houses off campus and the sororities do not have houses. Its a great way to get involved on campus and with others that go to your university.

    Greek Life is one of the best aspects of this campus. I took the opportunity to join and then become president of one of the organizations. I learned a lot about budgeting time and money, working with others, making tough decisions for the good of the organization and working with leadership of campus.

    This is not as big as other schools and the girls cannot have a house off campus, but they are still close and fun to be in and get people involved and the frats are fun to dance at.
