    UNLV has numerous food and dining choices for students to eat at, especially in the House of Commons and the Student Union. In the House of Commons, students can choose whatever food they want to eat through a buffet-styled dining hall. At the Student Union, students can choose to eat either at SOHO Burrito, Smashburger, Greens to Go, Starbucks, Jamba Juice, P.O.D. Market, Subway, Panda Express, or Taco Bell. Students can also visit numerous plazas located next the Student Union that consist of popular restaurants and fast-food places, including McDonalds, KFC, etc. Long story short, UNLV has a lot of offer for food and dining.

    The Dining Commons food is hardly good. It's like eating the same thing everyday and half the time it's not fresh. We have a handful of restaurants in our Student Union, but you can easily get sick of having the same food daily. I am a vegetarian but there are not many options for me. I definitely have to eat the same foods everyday, but my friends that eat regular food complain often also. I suggest buying a fridge and stocking up on your own food.

    Honestly, the food in the Dining commons could be better, breakfast, sandwiches, and the salad are great. But when a student doesn't want to eat in the DC they have an option to go to the Student Union to get fast food!

    For commuter students, or those who don't have a meal plan - UNLV campus has the best food. The student union basically houses a mall food court with Panda Express, Starbucks, Subway, etc. We are also surrounded by other amazing restaurants that will fulfill any craving. Thai, Chinese, American, Italian, Hawaiian, literally everything. Alot of places around here also offer student discounts.

    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.
