    On our south campus, students have access to an excellent dining hall that offers an all you can eat buffet. On our north campus, students have access to the student center which offers a wide variety of food for students to choose from. I've been here for my entire college career and have yet to try everything that UNO has in their food court.

    The food at Milo Bail Center is alright, but not great. I recommend the Scott Cafe. They offer meal plans that give you daily access to the buffet they offer. I think they have a great buffet because it offers a great variety of options of quality food. My big concern with trusting school meals is the quality and Scott Cafe definitely makes sure that the food is well cooked and served appropriately. They offer a grill with a variety of options if you do not like what the buffet offers. You just write on a slip of paper what type of burger, hot dog, grilled chicken sandwich, etc you want and they call your name when it is ready. The desserts are always great- brownies, cookies, ice cream, pie, cheesecake...you name it. The staff is always professional and nice if you need anything as well. I recommend the chocolate milk they have there because I think it is homemade or something- there is just something about it that tastes good. They definitely do no cheap out on the meals- you can certainly expect not to be getting a dinner that is made of Great Value or other store brand materials. The south part of the campus is located in a convenient area for a great variety of other dining options as well with the Aksarben area just a couple blocks away.

    The cafeterias have amazing food, but if you live in the dorms you have the option to make your own food.

    There is so much ramen to be had at home, but give the dining a shot at least. I like the deserts best. The cakes and cupcakes and ice cream are my weakness in life, especially since I like to overload on the extras I can put on top...

    I saw lots of options and was impressed by all the choices students had for food. Also out in town there seemed to be many places to try out.

    Not a lot of options on campus, but plenty of restaurants within walking distance.

    The cafeteria is more like a mall food court - there are several different shops where you can purchase the food from. It is pretty good for cafeteria food, however a little pricey.

    UNO's Greek life is small compared to other universities, there are only 4 Fraternities and 4 Sororities. However, what UNO lacks in the size of their Greek life, they make up for it in the amount that they do for our campus and community. The largest philanthropic events on our campus are held by the Greek life here. Going Greek was the best decision I made when I came to college.

    Terrible. I got kicked out of UNO PIKE because 1 kid did not like me and the president is his big brother. They just drink and party. I joined to travel and meet a lot of people, but all they do it party and drink, every weekend!!! Once I got disconnected, my so called brothers didn't call or text me. They all stopped talking to me. I would not recommend joining.

    I am not part of a sorority, but again I have plenty of friends who are. They are all for joining one, and they all seem to agree that their sorority/fraternity helped them get through the tough times and even help academically.
