    I thought the food was pretty good and it was better than having to cook for myself, I just sometimes they serve the same things sometimes. You can also go as many times as you want through out the day, which is pretty awesome.

    UNI does a fantastic job of providing different options for all taste buds. They provide vegan and vegetarian meals for my fellow vegans, as well as both healthy options and comfort food. You will never get sick of eating in the dining centers!

    The dining centers at UNI are pretty nice. There are usually a great variety of options to choose from, and it really isn't too difficult to adapt a healthier diet with their food choices.

    Dorm food: those two words are an incoming freshman's nightmare. It's not as bad as you think, but sometimes it is. I actually work at one of the dining centers and let me tell you, it's...interesting some of the food that they serve. If you happen to live in Lawther, Cambpell, or the Towers you will be eating at the Rialto dining center and it is...let me say not one of the greatest ones in the world.

    This is my fourth year on the food program. Good choices and facilities. My parent said it was the best and healthiest food from the colleges we visited.

    Two main dining centers offered. Several food carts throughout campus and the union has a cluster of restaurants. There's also markets available on campus for your shopping needs.

    Greek life is wonderful! Nothing like what you see on tv or in the movies. Being in a sorority I know first hand that they are a wonderful group of people going to great places. They are all willing to help another person or club on campus!

    Uni has a very loyal greek life. Some of the larger fraternities are very active in the community in helping out different organizations. They also hold annual events that have been a tradition since they started. It's also a great way to make connections through school and jobs to benefit you once you graduate.

    The best decision I've made in my life! Without Alpha Phi, I wouldn't be as involved as I am or have as good of grades as I do.

    There are some cool greek life groups here on campus. I am part of the band fraternity Tau Beta Sigma. But there are social fraternities and soroities as well. There's a lot of participation in greek life and its a great way to get to know more people.

    There is a greek life on campus, and while I have never been apart of it, I have close friends who are super involved and love it! So if you want to be a part of it, take the risk and go for it!
