    Food and dining is great on campus. There are so many different restaurants, ranging from Mexican to Chinese to salads and sandwiches. In most buildings, students can find a bite to eat, during any time of day.

    The DC has a variety of food and rotates the meals so you don't feel like you're eating the same thing over and over again. You can also use food swipes for cereal/milk, candy, 6-packs of soda if you have any leftover. The Joe has chains like panda and port of subs and starbucks, all taste good and are a treat since most of us can't afford to go there every meal. There are a couple cafes around campus in some of the busiest buildings like the DMS or KC.

    There are many restaurants in and surrounding the University. To keep it plain you will never go hungry there because at all ends of the campus there are places to eat such as Panda Express, sandwich shops and coffee houses. The food quality store and restaurant-wise is superb, but as for the dining hall food, some dishes are good, but not great and others' taste quality are determined in the mouth of the beholder.

    Food could be better and also have more of a variety but it will get you full since it is a buffet style cafeteria

    There are many restaurants on campus, including one that has just been opened by local business owners! There's a very wide variety of options varying from fast food to salad, and there are plenty of options for special diets such as vegan and vegetarian.

    The food is slowly improving taste-wise. The college campus has a system that uses different meal plans to determine how many times you can enter the main dining hall which is an all you can eat buffet. Different sections include: Grilled burgers and fries, soups and salads, Asian grill, pizza, cold sandwich bar, dessert bar, fruit and bagel bar, over 30 types of drink fountains, and home-cooked comfort food (which is always the one with the longest line). Take my word, unless you eat a lot and are an athlete, then opt for Premium C as your meal plan. You have two weeks to change it, but I can almost guarantee that it will be all you need. Each meal plan also comes with Foodbucks that allow you to eat at various eateries on campus like Panda Express and Port of Subs. Best place youâ??ll ever buy a hotdog, though, is BoDawgs. In fact, just go get one right now.

    There are many places to eat on campus. Aside from the DC, the main dining hall, we also have a Panda express, a waffle place, a burrito place, the Overlook, which serves a variety of things, and other dining establishments. The DC is very accommodating for those with dietary restrictions.

    The Greek life is very active on this campus. Every week, the Greeks get together and each Greek group promotes their symbol in fun ways like, sign up for this and this, and get a free cupcake! Or the boy Greeks will get together and have a huge barbeque on the front lawn of the university, with free burgers and hot dogs. There are even Greek groups for certain majors, for example, the engineering Greeks.

    Greek life often hold events to raise money for their philanthropy. To them its charity work, to the rest of the student body it means free food, live music, and a fun way to spend our day.

    Terrible. Minimal sororities, and if one has an infraction, they kick them of campus. I know from experience.
