    Any time I am hungry, there are multiple options to eat. In the library, center of campus, student union, gym/student wellness center-- wherever I am on campus-- I am guaranteed to find something that I feel like eating! There are SO many choices too. There is something for everyone, even vegetarians like myself.

    I have no idea, but I know they have good smoothies, because I got one when I visited.

    There are many options for food such as the Pod store which includes your endless variety of snacks and frozen foods that you would find at an average gas station. The Student Union is a large space with franchised stores like Panda Express, Jamba Juice, Taco Bell, and others. The Dining Commons is the residence dining area, which is an all you can eat buffet styled place. It consists of your classic grilled cheese sandwiches, pizza, salad, as well as a change in meals every night. There is food for everyone: healthy, sweets, vegan, and carb cravers.

    The food and dining at UNLV is average at most. There are a variety of options, but these options are not something to look for if you have allergies or are interested in keeping fit. In addition, the lines and Student Union areas are crowded with people, so it takes a very long time to get the food you would like. It is also pricey.

    UNLV has a fairly large variety of dinning options. The Student Union provides different cuisines so you can satisfy your craving. The Starbucks and Coffee Bean are also a huge positive to our campus.

    The food choices in the food court are pretty good. I get a smoothie from Jamba Juice every Friday as a treat for completing the week with good grades. However, I think there could be better restaurant choices, perhaps a few that are a bit healthier and not filled with so much sodium. I would also recommend eating in the library instead of the student union because I like a quieter environment and it isn't as crowded in the library.

    The dining commons or DC has a semi decent selection, but it gets old really fast. and any unused meals area definitely not worth what you trade for at the end of the's pathetic.

    Greek Life is amazing for anyone who is interested. There are many different types and they are all, for the most part, friendly people from my experience. They are very involved in their sorority or frat, and many activities are enjoyed in Greek Life.

    Greek life is nothing fancy. It is something that people join to make friends, but they are not really a large part of the campus. They hold fundraisers and try to raise awareness for causes, but otherwise they are just a nuisance to those trying to get to class.

    Greek life is not a big deal at UNLV. You see many members of different sororities and fraternities fund raising, getting students involved in various activities, and a ton of recruitment. Unless you are a part of any house, the Greek Life is housed in the homes of the members. This experience calls for a lot of free time and effort and the members are always friendly and helpful.
