    Food gets tiring after a while, but there are many places around town.

    It's definitely not a home cooked meal but there are many dining options. If anything, cereal gets the job done.

    Dining is pretty good, though it gets repetitive and less appetizing by the start of the second semester. Lots of good restaurants located in downtown. and a multitude of big chain options (Wendy's, Starbucks, etc.) available at the University commons on campus.

    South Quad and North Quad have THE BEST food hands down. On special nights, they have roasted duck, crispy pork belly, steak, seafood pasta, garlic butter clams, never ending bread variety..etc. On average nights, it's still great. There's so much to choose from. But even if you eat the best pizza every day, it'll probably get old around the fourth month or so.

    From visiting the campus there seems to be a lot of places to go out and eat and a lot of social life happening around the campus.

    Overall, the dining at UMich is pretty regular. It's not bad food and I enjoy eating it. The newer halls tend to have more variation and more vegetarian/vegan/gluten free options. A huge pro is the cookies at pretty much every dining hall: they're delicious and I eat way too much of them.

    Very prevalent. While they are in the minority (20-25%), they make themselves apparent. You're never more than 10 feet from a frat bro/sorority sister.

    i would say a good 30-40% are involved in it. But it's not like you're pressured to join one. If you do, that's you're community. If you don't, you have endless other clubs to join and communities to be apart of -- DO NOT WORRY :) You find your place here quicker than you think.

    Greek life is huge at UMich. A little too huge. There are so many houses to join and rushing is a big deal in the beginning of the school year.

    Greek life is huge in Ann Arbor with plenty of houses on frat row. There will always be parties on the welcome week, tailgates every Saturday morning when there's a home football game, and plenty of rush events to match you the house you'll most likely enjoy.

    If you're thinking of joining a fraternity or sorority, do it. Greek life is huge here. But if you don't want to participate, you will still have a great time here.

    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.
