    There are actually a lot of food choices at the student union, such as Panda Express, Metro Pizza, and Greens To Go. I don't eat there much, though. There is also a Starbucks and a Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf if you want a nice drink to start off your day.

    There are a variety of foods on campus as well as walking distance. Usually, I walk to Cafe Rio, In-n-Out, or Chipotle for lunch because the Student Union is always crowded. UNLV also allows food trucks on campus, so students won't always face having the same food choices. The dining facility would not be considered a five-star rating but it does have quality food, enough to suffice.

    The food is pretty great overall. The dining commons always has something good to eat, but it's not always great. On campus food is pretty good but limited if you're a picky eater- however, there are a ton of fantastic restaurants around the school that can make up for it if you get bored of what campus has to offer.

    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.

    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.

    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.
