    Wilkerson and Squires both have amazing food. It does get a little old after a while, but there are always plenty options available to choose from.

    The food is good, I'm picky but can always find something. I tend to eat at Wilkerson all the time since it is closest to my dorm.

    The food is amazing. There is a to go area so that you can bring food from the dining center to anywhere on campus. They also have a meal plan where you can go as many times as you want a day and it would still cost the same, no extra charge.

    Was pleasantly surprised by the dining hall during the visit. Wilkerson is new and was very nice. Seem to have a lot of options between the 3 dining centers and the smaller dining halls at the med school and airport.

    I have been impressed with the dining halls at UND. Sunday-Thursday they are open late until 11pm, and open until 8pm on Friday and Saturday. There are 3 in different locations throughout campus. They have a wide-variety of different foods offered and always a salad bar open. The

    Again, I can't personally attest to the food and dining on campus. I did recently here from a majority of students in one of my classes that the dining halls lack consistency in the quality and availability of food. Also, buying food on campus tends to be more expensive than the grocery store counterpart. In other words, your money doesn't go as far when you spend it at the University's convenience stores and snack kiosks.

    There are so many frats and sororities on campus and they are so welcoming and nice. The girls are not mean and catty like you see in movies and the guys are not all buff and jerky. They are super welcoming to non-greeks.

    Greek life can play an extensive part of a student's life at UND if he or she wishes it to. There is an entire week dedicated to recruitment and the school seems to plan around it.

    There is a substantial collection of both fraternities and sororities, but I don't especially know much of anything about them. The girls I met last year who were in sororities were not the kind of people that I wanted to be closely associated with, so I avoided the scene.

    There are a lot of fraternity and sororities on campus. They have their rush twice a year and well, the rest is what you all know.
