    With UMD's new dinning hall the food has increased a ton and they have a ton of different options for food.

    The Food Court and Northern Shores Coffee Shop are great places to quick grab a bite to eat! The new dining center looks very nice, but the food is not the greatest--its totally eatable, but not the best tasting. If you have a gluten free need it can be challenging to eat here a lot, so I recommend choosing the apartments freshman year so you have more control over your diet.

    Food is not as good as it is when you tour. The newly upgraded dining center is actually pretty good, but the food court is better.

    Although the food court and coffee shop are delicious, the necessary meal plan at UMD's dining center tends to make me extremely sick, and you will hear this from a majority of the students that go here and are on the meal plan, which all freshman are required to have. The meals are either a total hit or an absolute miss, and they miss more often than not. However, UMD does try to provide a lot of options for the students, and are renovating this year to include a full time pasta bar and a Mongolian grill, which I hope will be just as delicious as the food one can grab in the food court. There's always cereal, sandwiches, soups, and salads for you if you are not a fan of the meal that day. Otherwise, I highly suggest going to the food court. There are many delicious options there, which your complementary dining dollar services will cover (for up to $200 each semester). Overall to prospective UMD students, I suggest getting the lowest meal-per-week plan you can, and use dining dollars in the food court to get the rest of your meals. One can absolutely survive this way, and it is a much cheaper option. I would like to add that as of now, UMD does not have very many options for gluten free, vegan, or vegetarian diners in their dining center. I personally know someone who left the dorms to live in an apartment so she could cook meals for herself because most days she could not eat what was served in the dining center. Highly consider this if you have any dietary restrictions before choosing UMD.

    Two dining halls with immense diversity of food. Plus there are snacks in every store and vending machines everywhere.

    Food is excellent! My favorite lunch stop is the Great Lakes Grain Superior Sandwiches, a Northland Twist on subs. My preferred lunch is the Irvin, named after the William A Irvin ship in Canal Park, with chicken, bacon, cheddar, lettuce, tomato and Salsa Rosa. If you follow the UMD Dining Service @DiningUMD on Twitter you get 10% off. In addition to the niche food places there is the expected generic student meal plan where you choose the number of meals per week and pay accordingly: http://www.d.umn.edu/food/mealplans/policy.html If you prefer off campus dining UMD is creating a sort of Dinky Town complete with Jimmy Johns, Starbucks, Qudoba, Chilly Billys, The Tavern (beer & wings) and more. Students often take a free bus to a grocery store 1mi away from campus to pick up food. No mater your pallet or wallet there is a place to eat for you.

    The food could be a little better! A wider variety of healthier options would be very appreciated, especially on the weekends.

    I am biased because I am apart of Greek life. BUT it was the best decision I have made here. By being a part of it I have made so many new friends and connections, I am way more involved on campus and in my community, and my grades are way better. My sisters help me when I struggle and they make me strive for success. The Greek life at UMD is NOT what you see in movies or at big schools. It's a whole other community within UMD--we are a family.

    I have a friend who is in a sorority but that is the extent to what I know about them. Otherwise, I see them doing a lot of fundraisers for the community for the less-fortunate, which is refreshing to see, and nice to know they are out there helping. If you are looking for a party, there's bound to be one somewhere hosted by Greek Life. Be wary, however, there are some nasty rumors around a particular fraternity that involve putting unwelcomed drugs in women's drinks. I've heard accounts to which this is true, but do not wish to slander any Greek names if it is not, especially since so many of them do great things for the Duluth community. Again, just be careful.

    I myself do not take part in Greek Life but I love to see the groups engage in outreach and fundraising on campus. I most enjoy their grilled cheese fundraisers where they sell a grilled cheese sandwich for $1. It is common to see students walk into class with a stack of grilled cheese. Outreach wise they volunteer for elementary after school programs/ reading programs, participate in highway/ lake shore clean up and visit nursing homes.

    I haven't seen or heard much about Greek Life. It isn't too big on UMD Campus, but there are quite a few different Greek houses for girls or boys.
