Student Responses to Review Topic: Food And Dining

    The food is fantastic. Not just the taste but the diversity of the meals as well. There are a number of dining halls that all have different foods and different cooking styles. There shouldn’t be a single day where you should go hungry. I would advise signing up for the 14 a week meal plan because meal plans can be very expensive.

    The dining hall on East Campus has the best breakfast, but I think that the dining halls on City have better and more food options and are a lot more bigger than the one on East Campus.

    There is a little something for all taste buds! If you find the dining app does not show a meal to your liking, you can find just about anything if you are willing to walk for it.

    Varies. Some days are great and some are just okay. There are also days where you just aren't feeling any of the food options. The Student Union has a Starbucks, Runza, and Subway (among other things) and there are three grab and go lunch options, along with every residence hall having an in-hall dining location.

    The dining hall can get very old. You can find local bars with deals for students and eat out if you get tired of the dinning halls or even try all the different dinning halls so you get a different scene and menu.

    The part of UNL i would say i dislike is the fact that Greek life makes the student body a little clickie. You kinda just have to feel it for yourself but i think everyone can attest.

  • I am a past student here

    I went through recruitment, terrifying process, especially for someone that was the first in her family to participate. It was worth it, when I transferred colleges, I had an automatic network of students at my new college that welcomed me. If you want to make your college experience out of the ordinary, participate in recruitment.

    Greek life is what you would expect from a typical campus. There's the party fraternities and sororities and the studious ones. If you're looking to get into Greek life, do research and know exactly what you're getting into.

    If you are interested in becoming involved in Greek life, I highly recommend you come here. I'm not involved in Greek life, but they have a wide presence on campus and there are many houses to choose from, most of them are even located on campus.

    While I know they have greek life there, I don't know too much about it, and I'm hoping to find out more as I get further along.

    this is a camppus known for greek life, i am a recent member of a sorority on campus and I enjoy the life a lot. you get to know a lot of people and it is a way of branching out if it is for you. i really recomend rushing in the fall if you are thinking about it.
