    The food is actually good, but as in any other place, the food is expensive so it would be good if students take lunch with them there is nothing wrong with that.

    The food is made by Sodexo. It's low-quality and overpriced, as well as lacking in options for people with dietary restrictions.

    There is really only one main cafeteria, the sandwich place and pizzas are pretty good, but I only go for the salad bar at school.

    Greek Life is not a major part of campus life. The organizations are seen as one of many clubs students can join.

    Not the stereotypical frats or sororities. All of them (or at least the majority) are academics related, such as for honors students or students in a specific major.
