    I love the food at my University! The prices are fair, and the quality is amazing! It's not fast food.

    The University's cafes are not even arguably as good as local restaurants but to someone who is new to the area you may not know you have better options. The cafe's are in the same style of most high-school cafeterias.

    Yes, the university does provide sandwiches and coffee. Pushing the humor aside, there are a variety of foods provided to satisfy the most supercilious palette. Of course, food is money. If you can afford it, you can have it.

    We recently got a new food service, so things have picked up. The burgers, salads, and pitas taste pretty good and catering to events have a diverse menu of options. However, I would still plan to brown-bag it if you live at home like me. Though it tastes okay, the price is rather expensive. My tip to you: take a campus bus (very good service) and head over to Fairlane Mall. A lot more diverse choices at your fingertips and a lot cheaper. You can feast like royalty.

    Not many choices. They have the grille that serves chicken sandwiches, burgers and nuggest. Then they have a pizza section, a small soup section, a bread section (donuts, bagels, and muffins). Lastly, there is subway (they don't have a toaster) and i refrigerated section for sushi or humus. Imagine all of this in a room that is equivalent to about 2.5 bed rooms. It's VERY small and takes about 15 minutes just to get your food and go.

    The cafeteria has a lot of options for students. Every week they have a different type of food they are making such as Mexican week or Asian week. There is also a Subway which I love to have to eat because its healthy and always delicious.

    There are several greek life opportunities on campus for both female and males. I have not joined any because I am in other groups right now.

    Three main social fraternities and three main social sororities are present on campus along with a few professional fraternities (for Engineering and Business students mainly.) Some of the social fraternities throw small house parties at the fraternity house or nearby banquet halls.

    We have a lot of different chapters on campus, both sororities and fraternities. I am in neither, but it IS very close-knit. If you're looking for sisters or brothers, you wouldn't be disappointed. I thought about joining one, but I didn't have the personality type to really fit in or mesh like other girls. If you don't want to join one, don't feel bad. Lots of people aren't in one. You will be asked to join by very nice girls and boys, so go to a Rush Week and see if you will be a good mesh.

    It's a commuter school so not very great... it's still there though. Just not as great as schools like Michigan State, Ann Arbor, Western, or even Central.

    The greek life is good, but unlike most schools its not the only way to have a good time, just a great way to make new friends.

    We have quite a few sororities and fraternities that actively recruit members, they put on a lot of campus events and promote philanthropy.
