    Food at the Downunder cafe (dorm food) is good once in a while, but eating there every day gets old. Other food options include: Panda Express, Starbucks, Keva Juice, SOHO sushi burrito, Greatful Gardens (healthy choices), and Port of Subs.

    The food is good and there are several places on campus to get food. Never really felt limited in what I can and can't eat.

    The cafeteria doesn't really have a lot of variety, and the food is prepackaged and just reheated, so sometimes it's still cold, hard, etc. Everything else on campus is a coffee shop or some kind of fast food.

    The administrators of the dining hall, the Downunder Cafe, try to keep it varied with different choices almost everyday. They host special events like a Halloween party, Thanksgiving buffet, Winter Extravaganza, etc. Still, the food can get tiring and boring. It's hard to be creative.

    At the Joe Crowley Student Union, there are a variety of food choices from Panda Express, to Port of Subs, to different sandwiches, and Einstein Bagel. There is also a choice of a buffet style called the Downunder Café (from breakfast, lunch, and dinner).

    It is not spectacular but with a little thinking, someone could fine the amount and variation to be nearly perfect. It takes just a little know how to properly circulate through all the food options reasonably. The best thing to do is try each place of eating through each semester as well as being wise with how much spending occurs on eating.

    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.

    I'm not interested in this at all but I'm pretty sure there are lots of fraternities and sororities in this University.

    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.
