    Dining hall is dining hall, but so much cereal! There are several great (and affordable) places to get food between classes in the campus hub, as well as independently owned coffeeshops that are fantastic.

    Actually pretty decent food here. There's only two dining halls, and one of them has very strange hours, but the fast food/restaurants on campus help make up for that. The dining hall lay out also makes zero sense, so when you're looking for food, make sure to check all the corners and stations so you don't miss out on anything!

    Food is really good. They have a variety to choose from. The dining area is clean and set up in different sections.

    Lots of variety at Rams, but Lenoir is very small with not enough seating. Granville has very good food but it get repetitive.

    The dining hall has tons of options and it is pretty good. But not matter what, dining hall food gets boring...I was sick of it by the end of the semester.

    We have buffet type of dinning system, which means you can eat as much as you can and stay as long as they open! Late night will help you get through long lasting night.

    The main dining hall, Lenoir, is a great place to go during the day while you are on Main Campus for class. The staff is exceptionally nice, and the food is amazing as well. Rams Head is the dining hall on South Campus, where most Underclassmen eat. Late Night, which goes from 9 PM to 12 AM, is my favorite part of the day, as the dining hall serves breakfast food for dinner!

    Carolina does a pretty good job of offering a variety of dishes at each meal. The hours on the weekends aren't the best, but as long as you know the schedule and you can plan, you'll be fine. Late night at Rams Head is a favorite for freshmen, but it doesn't offer the healthiest choices. Stick to regular dining hours for more nutritious dishes. Carolina Dining Services (CDS) posts the menus for the various locations on their website. You can also get the nutritional content of each dish along with special notes like 'contains nuts' or 'gluten-free'. A plus for those of you interested in sustainability - Top of Lenoir and Rams Head both compost back-of-house. Tip - you won't need an unlimited plan. Unless, maybe, you are training for an eating contest. Or perhaps if you like to eat small meals multiple times (more than 3) throughout the day. Otherwise, I'd say it's better to go with a smaller plan. Most people don't use up their plan and at the end of the semester we have 'Swipe Fest' where people post on Facebook when they will be at Lenoir or Rams to swipe people in for free.

    As a fraternity member, I enjoy it. Most fraternities and sororities are open and welcoming (few exceptions) to new members. However, if you are expecting to be let into events without knowing members, you won't be admitted.

    It exists. Personally, I am not a part of it, but my roommate is and she loves it. Greeks and non-Greeks definitely hang out and interact.
