    The campus has all types of options when it comes to food. My favorite would probably be Shakespeare's Pizza. You cannot go wrong with this place. It is a great place to go on game day or to simply hangout with friends.

    honestly i can say that there food is pretty good. there are tons of options to choose from. mizzou has a ton of dining halls and a couple of them run into the late nights so you can get a quick snack incase you are hungry in the middle of the night. their food is quite pleasant as well almost as if it was a home cooked meal. the best parts are when it is around the holidays and some dining halls go all out and serve top notch meals and the scenery makes everything look fancy. overall you can not go wrong with it as it tastes really good.

    I actually enjoy the food on campus. The best place to eat on campus depends on what you like. It's a little bit of everything to eat on campus. I just wish it was more healthier options. Like the vegetarian options are small and I wish it wasn't.

    The food is fine just you average dinning hall food. There are also markets you can use swipes at that sell things like Gatorade, cereal, etc.Campus is walking distance to downtown so you have your choice of those restaurants. There's all kinds of food options so you'll never go hungry.

    The food is good but the same basic thing is served all year, but thankfully places like Sabai,Baja,an Emporium provided some variety.

    Most campus cafeterias serve what is served at your high school cafeteria. All of them close around 7pm, however, Rollins@Night serves food until 1am. Rollins@Night is the best campus cafeteria food, so expect a long line if you plan on coming here. Besides the cafeterias, there is a food court beside the Mizzou Store.

    Not many different options for vegetarians and vegans. Especially the salad bar in Plaza is disappointing

    The many fraternities and sororities will put you in awe.

    It seems like Greek Life is everywhere on campus. They are always hosting something on campus, it ranges from volunteer opportunities to informational opportunities.

    I am not in a sorority, but I live close enough to the sorority houses to say that it seems like a lot of fun. I might join next year.

    Greek life is one of the biggest priorities at the university. Girls throw what they know and wear their letters proudly. Fraternities are not as aggressive, however their rushing system is completely different from sororities.

    A lot of it. Not too intimidating from my friend's experiences with it. Other colleges have much more of a problem with initiation and stuff. Mizzou isn't perfect though.

    Greek life is definitely present at Mizzou but it by no means dominates the campus. I know plenty of people who participate in Greek Life but it really is only like a quarter of the campus. Those that are in it really enjoy it and recommend to others that they should join.

    I personally am not involved in Greek Life, but my roommate is. From what I hear from her it's a lot of fun. You have a whole other family on campus.

    Very prominent part of this university as you usually see them on the way to your next class period doing some sort of pledge or whatnot. Housing for Greek life can vary (as does with every university) but I do not feel like you would miss much if you were not into that sort of thing. This is simply my opinion, in which I am not a part of any sort of Greek life.
