    The dining hall has a ton of options. The best part of being a freshman and living in the dorms was late night dining- the dhall opens late Thursday-Sunday so that you can get food after going out or studying late.

    um has two dining halls, a food court, several foot stands across campus, and an on-campus sports bar. there are plenty of off-campus spots within walking distance, including shake shack and spring chicken. the variety of food options is enough to keep you satisfied for your time at um. the university is actively trying to make the dining halls and on-campus eateries more vegan, kosher, and halal friendly. this initiative can be noticed, and the menus for these diets have been expanding almost monthly

    The University of Miami has great dining services. There are two dining halls on campus, a food court, and other vendors. The dining halls always attempt to provide diverse dishes to appeal to the diverse palettes in our school. Our dining halls also try to have a consistent meals, so you know there's always something to eat.

    I liked the buffet, and considering I had breakfast, lunch, and dinner there, it wasn't half bad.

    Most of the students are on a meal plan which is for the cafeteria and the dining hall but there's also the student activities center where it has a number of restaurants you can choose to eat from.

    UM isn't a Greek or Die school. Being involved in greek life is an experience that is available and many enjoy but it isn't a necessity to prosper at UM.

    There is a lot to do with Greek Life. Traditional sororities and fraternities as well and smaller multicultural ones and business related ones.
