    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.
