  • My dorm experience was very positive. I lived on North Campus as a freshman, which actually turned out to be a blessing in disguise. Yes, riding a bus to class…

Student Responses to Review Topic: Food And Dining

    This depends on which area you're referring to - the dorm food varies based on the dorm. East Quad is known for having great vegetarian options, Markley has the option to make your own personal pizza, and South Quad just reopened this past year and is supposed to be really nice. Some of it's pretty good, some of it is just average. The city of Ann Arbor, however, is amazing for food. Ann Arbor has hundreds of restaurants and is consistently ranked pretty highly on lists of places to go for good food. Zingerman's is a really well-known deli that you shouldn't miss when visiting Ann Arbor (Obama even visited!), and there are lots of great, affordable options close to campus, as well.

    Food varies greatly by dining hall. The best are South Quad and Mojo, while Bursley and Markley fall flat. The good news is, the good dining halls are REALLY good. Some serve sushi and all kinds of international cuisine. And the cookies are to die for.

    It's a lot of the same, average food, but on occasion they have really good food. There's always a salad bar and fresh fruit, so it isn't hard to eat healthy.

    I'm so glad we now have unlimited meal plans. I like being able to stop in at any dining hall whenever I want. Some dining halls aren't as good as others, but there are so many options available that I can always find something I'd like to eat.

    Superb dining experience in the newly renovated halls, though a few of the older ones are left in the dust and serve lackluster food. Stick to the more popular, new dining halls and find one that you like and eat there often. It can be very difficult to maintain a healthy diet given the amount of unhealthy options, desserts, and oil/fat included in most foods but it is possible. If you're trying to avoid the freshman 15, you have to be one of the rare ones who keeps the priority of health all year! For 2015, the West Quad dining hall is the one being renovated and will be newly opened, so try there if looking for a first option.

    The food is rather varied. There will definitely be something for everyone. Anything ranging from vegan, gluten-free, to fresh steak!

    I'm not a part of Greek life, so I can't comment on it, but a significant amount of students are - about 20%

    Greek life is pretty huge on campus, with 17 sororities and 33 fraternities. Highly suggest it for a positive social experience, but it is also easy to maintain a busy social life without being a part of a greek organization.

    I am in professional greek life, KTP, and I love it. It's a great resume builder and they provide you with so many new resources and volunteer opportunities. I've also met some of my best friends here.

    Apparently only 20% of the student body is involved in Greek Life, but it seems like it's a way higher percentage. I swear they're everywhere. It's very easy to tell who's in a sorority because all their clothes and laptops are adorned in their letters. There are a lot of stereotypical sorority girls and frat boys. However, I hear that there are plenty of less popular sororities and fraternities that are less stereotypical and most people are able to find one they like.

    While Greek Life isn't exactly my thing, I know tons of friends who are in it and they love it. There are tons of Fraternities and Sororities and if you are interested, you will find one for you (there are even Christian-based frats!) If you just want to participate in their festivities, then Rush Week will be a blast for you.

    There is a very active greek life ranging from crazy party scene to some activism and community service.

    Greek Life is alive and well on campus. We have a number of sororities and fraternities available for students to join. But it is important to note that Greek Life doesn't run the campus, and there are plenty of other opportunities for socializing to be found if the Greek isn't for you.

    I am Greek. There are Fraternities and Sororities of all sizes with an array of people. There are ones for business, professional, social, cultural, etc.

    I'm not in Greek Life and it can get really obnoxious. It's a never ending stream of drunken parties, and hearing people talk about them gets annoying. I've gone to a few frat parties and if you've heard the song Selfie that is ONE HUNDRED PERCENT the party culture I've seen, I don't have any desire to go to any next year. The people I know in GL are super into it, though, so if that's your thing you might really enjoy it.
