    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.

    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.

    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.

    No idea about other languages, but I will probably learn about them soon, do to the fact that one of my teacher education endorsements at the moment is English as a Second Language.
