    FreshFood Company (17th hall) is where it is at. They usually have the most and the best options when it comes to food. You can also look online to see what's going to be in the dining hall but sometimes it isn't correct. Sadly, there are days when the food isn't good no matter where you go.

    Dorm food is not great, but on campus food and dining options are awesome.

    Food is alright in the dining halls, but being near the city there are tons of different restaurants and grocery stores near campus.

    It's college food. It was about as good as I expected to be. There are lots of good restaurants on campus or very nearby.

    Lots of different dining opportunities for students on campus. Flex pay makes paying easier as well.

    On campus food is extremely expensive for what it is (it comes out to like $10 a meal). Even out of the dorms, there are no real grocery stores around campus, so getting food can be tough.

    I honestly just love food, and I like every type of food, so this might be biased, but I enjoyed their food during my visits to see my friends and relatives living on campus here.

    I haven't got out much to explore food here at the U of M because I have been busy with class, but one place I do know that serves the best food here is in dinky Down a Korea restaurant that serves fresh food made in front of you and the best meal is the Korean BBQ and their dubokki a spicy radish soup. One of the best place to go out and eat with friends after class or for dinner as well.

    I don't really know too much about greek life at the U, I just know that there is a huge presence on campus. There are also a lot of multicultural greek houses on campus! I hear it is a great way to meet people, make friends, and make connections.

    I am personally not a part of greek life, but it always seems fun. There's weekly parties and formal dinners. Rushing to be in the greek life can become challenging if a student doesn't have the necessary fund to be a part of it, but there are always informal greek life that a student can join and I am sure it will be just as great.

    Sorority Row is located near what is called The Beach where greek life students gather to play Frisbee, tan, and socialize.
