    Probably some of the best food I've had, and all my friends complain about their schools food. There are so many options and a lot of reliable fall backs in case for some reason the options available are not something you like. We have three different dining hall, one of which has weird hours but the other two are great!

    UNH dining is award winning for a good reason. There are strong accommodations for students with food allergies or sensitivities, and a large variety of options for everyone. There's always pizza and bagels out, as well as a salad bar, stir fries, and rotating meat and vegetable dishes.

    As you may have heard, UNH has some of the best food around! There are three dining halls to choose from in addition to multiple other locations you can go to satisfy whatever your craving is. Hoco (holloway commons) is my personal favorite and offers the largest variety of food for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Each night is something different and there is always multple choices in case the nightly specialty isn't your favorite. Did I mention buffet style aka unlimited everything?

    We have six Panhellenic sororities and six Panhellenic fraternities. We have many more others that aren't "Panhellenic" recognized. People I know in Greek life absolutely love it and it's a great way to make friends. Socials on the weekends are also really fun.

    There's a ton of Greek life but you don't need it at all to make friends. Also members of Greek life are super nice and won't exclude non-Greek life students from activities. It improves the community, but don't forget that it's a HUGE commitment if you choose to participate.

    awesome greek life, but mostly social org based. uga is not a priority at this campus and often gets the short end of the stick. overall it's a great time.

    there are a few sororities and fraternities on campus that have houses and a few without houses. they are involved in the campus community and put on many philanthropies throughout the year that anyone can attend! it is a very positive greek life presence.

    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.
