    The food at UNH is quite exceptional: lots of choices, the ability to have things clocked how you want at certain stations, and very good food.

    3 dining halls on campus means that there is plenty of choices for even the pickiest eaters. Philbrook Hall (Philly) is also open for late night until 11pm for late night study snacks. Each hall hosts different special events, such as State Fair Night, Beast Feast, and Philly and the Chocolate Factory. There are meals to go that you can take advantage of, as well as meal exchanges that you can use at the Union Court in the MUB. Cafes are also spread throughout the campus for quick snacks on the run between classes.

    UNH has 3 dining halls on the campus and they are all very good! There is a wide variety to choose from and there are always specials going on also. If you don't like what they are serving for the main course, you can always have cereal, bread/bagels, salad and make your own sandwich. They have a gluten free section for those who need that. Overall, great dining services and the people who work there are super friendly.

    There are three dining halls throughout the campus that offer fantastic food. There seems to be something new everyday. When the dorm food begins to get sickening by the end of the semester, there are several food stands and restaurants all throughout campus.

    UNH has sororities and fraternities for everyone! We have social, professional, and honor sororities and fraternities for students of all interests. Some have houses available for students to live in and others prefer not to.

    Although I don't participate in Greek Life, I know a lot of people that do and they love it. UNH has numerous fraternities and sororities, that anyone that wants to join Greek Life could find one that would best fit his/her interests. Greek Life is very involved on campus and I always see them sponsoring events and donating money to charities, so if someone is interested in Greek Life, I would definitely suggest it!

    UNH offers a number of fraternities and sororities. I joined a sorority for a short time, but it wasn't for me. Howver I have friends who absolutely love it. If it is not your cup of tea, there is plenty else to do and others ways to mingle and meet people.

    Fraternities and Sororities are huge in college. I definitely recommend rushing them to see if they are right for you. Some people think its great, some not so much.
