    THE FOOD COURT IS SO NICE OMG. The cafeteria's food might not be the best, but they've got a lot of food chain stores in the food court that you can still use your meal plan at.

    The Tiger Den is usually clean, but sometimes, noticeably, the staff are rude or late in getting food in on time. They have Subway, Steak N' Shake, Panda Express, Taco Bell, and more on campus.

    Dining on campus is pretty good but dining off is even better. Memphis is home to some of the best restaurants in the country. You gotta go to Rendezvous and Aldo's.

    The Tiger Den has it's good days and bad days. The University Center has nice food, however, sometimes it is busy and takes a while to get your food. Chick-fil-a gets old after eating it several times a week. The Tiger Restaurant is great, however, it takes an excessively long time to wait on your food.

    A part of the campus, but it isn't a HUGE deal if you aren't involved. I'm not involved and I have a great time without being in Greek life.

    I am a part of Greek Life here and highly recommend it. Greek Life here at the UofM is a very close community. I cannot imagine college without it!

    I am not in an Greek Organizations. I have a close friend who is an Alpha Pi Delta I think and she loves it! Greek Life is time consuming, but it's worth it. You make friends for life, always have something exciting to do, and a built in support group...

    Greek like is big, but not the only thing to do. People don't necessarily look down on you if you're not Greek, but you're almost expected to join a sorority/fraternity.

    Greek Life is great! They host many fun parties. The best part is seeing them line dance on the yard a few times during the semester. Seeing this makes everyone want to be apart of greek life but only a few are really up for the commitment. There are many greek life organizations for all students. They do not discriminate against any kind,and they are very welcoming.

    Greek life is major on the University of Memphis campus. They have the Panhellenic and also the Non-Panhellenic Greek organizations. The University of Memphis is one of the many colleges that holds the Divine Nine. This is the nine Non-Pan Greek organizations. Greek life plays an important role at Memphis.
