    Oregon has some of the coolest dining options I have ever seen. There are plenty of healthy options as well as some great places to pig out. There's even a Mongolian grill, a sushi bar, and some cute coffee shops. To top it off, you never have to go far because there's dining options in nearly every dormitory.

    The U of O has 9 dining options ranging from your traditional dining halls to options such as sushi and burritos. There is something available for everyone, even the pickiest of eaters.

    The food provided by the school is good. Some of the options provided are not as good as I could get if I went off campus. I have the regular meal plan and I always have an excess of food at the end of the week.

    Tons of choices and pretty healthy. Avoid attending fried Friday every week and you won't have to deal with freshman-15.

    There are quite a few different establishments on campus. If one is going to eat there, make sure to have the meal plan. Without the meal plan, it is a rip off.

    UO offers a wide variety of choices which fits most needs of students lifestyles. I was able to find enough vegetarian/vegan options which was very important in choosing a school to live on-campus. Its hard to get bored of the food because there is pasta bars, deli-style salad bars, sandwich bars, sushi, salads, and a huge buffet that changes its menu every day!

    The food options around campus are amazing. They are all low priced and delicious foods. Dorm food is something everyone misses once they don't live on campus. Fresh fruit and healthy options are available as well as great splurge foods. Coffee is close at all dorms, and Starbuck (as well as other coffee shops) is just down 13th by the Duck Store.

    Greek life at Oregon is for the most part, a major party scene but it can be a great way to make new friends and get connected.

    I highly recommend joining Greek life. It's a great way to meet people and excellent for incoming freshman that don't know anyone else. Really the only way under classmen get into parties.

    The Greek Life isn't for everyone, however, i would encourage people to try it. I went into it and decided to drop, but I met so many people and they still say hi to me and we talk all the time. I even happened to have classes with some of them, and they love their greek life.

    I have no experience with Greek life, but the people I met who are in Greek life, for the most part, seem to love it. While those who are in it love it, Greek life is not necessary to have fun; you can tag along at several frat parties, and personally speaking, I've never felt any pressure to join Greek life. If you're in it, great! If not, don't worry.

    Greek life is fairly prominent, but it's not so prominent that if you aren't in it, you aren't considered a square. Everyone is pretty nice for the most part, and they do a lot for the city and the people of Eugene!
