    The food has been reported by the college (through email) that students have gotten food poisoning from dining on campus. I do not enjoy or recommend the food, it made me sick.

    There are a few select places that accept your meal swipes or block plans, and after a certain time, it is almost impossible to find a place to eat on campus. Birch is one of the best places around, but the line is always super long. Rez is okay, Wednesday nights are usually the best (chicken Caesar salad mixed to order), but it can get boring after a while unless you are into trying the variety of foreign foods the chefs prepare.

    The residence dining is great, there are always options for picky eaters and you'll definitely be able to find something you will eat.

    The food isn't horrible, though the amount of options seems more limited. Many students say that they changed the contract to limit the amount of meals you can get from a food cart in the academic buildings, and you are forced to use the dining hall. I heard of a few students with complaints of getting sick but I never once had a problem with the food.

    I was a fan of the dining Res. But of course, I did not eat there everyday. I'm just a fan of any buffet so I'm probably a little biased here, but there was always pizza, french fries, pasta, a salad bar, dessert, two to three main courses, a sandwich bar, chips, fruit, and all that good stuff. I mean, I can't complain too much. I will say that the food is no 5 star restaurant quality, but if you want 5 star restaurant quality, you have to pay 5 star prices, which you don't pay here.

    The Marketplace is the primary dining on campus and to be honest the food sucks. After leaving the Marketplace you will usually smell like grease and oil, however avoid this by eating at the great other options that take meal swipe such as Birch, Wendys, the Commuter Cafe. There are numerous places to eat on campus

    The food at UMass Dartmouth is amazing and there are so many selections of food and drinks! The cafeteria is huge and is very clean. I love it. I could eat there everyday or even go there to just hang out.

    There are no on campus housing for Greek life because of Massachusetts restrictions, so it definitely did not seem worth it to pay for a sorority

    Greek life is very popular on campus and there are tons of sororities to chose from, if that is what you are into.

    There are several greek organizations on campus. However the organizations are not very active such as throwing frat parties, however they do host fundraising balls and other events such as Relay For Life.

    We have sororities and fraternities but they don't have houses. They are more like clubs. I am not really sure what they do. But the people in them seem to be really close!

    Small, but very close. We are currently somewhere between 4-6% of campus population but growing. There are the major parties but more importantly there is the brother/sisterhood, bonding and academics to it.

    There are several different fraternities and sororities available to join, as well as co-ed fraternities. Though I haven't joined them, I have friends who have and all they can talk about is how great of an opportunity it is. The Greeks set up a lot of great events that usually is open to anyone on campus, as well as friends.
