    There is a good reason most upperclassman no longer have a meal plan.

    Food is a hit or miss. Most of the time, dining hall food sucks. However, on the occasion, there will be themed nights which are much better

    First-years are all required to be on unlimited meal plans, which makes eating at dining halls relatively easy. The dining halls are all run through Aramark, and the food is usually decent but not spectacular, which is all you can reasonably expect. However, the convenience of the meal plan is hard to top, as the dining halls are well-spaced, and meal swipes and Plus Dollars make it easy to get a taste of something different. The basement of Newcomb Hall (the student union) has Chick-Fil-A, Five Guys, and Subway (all of which accept meal swipes for certain items but Plus Dollars for the whole menu), and the Amphitheater has a good selection of local food trucks that will take Plus Dollars; these food trucks include meat pies, gyros, BBQ, poke (fish bowls), and dumplings (my personal favorite).

    There are three dining halls: Newcomb, O'Hill, and Runk. Newcomb is nicely located on Central Grounds by most classes and the UVA bookstore. O'Hill is by new dorms and is the best in my opinion. Runk is by Gooch/Dillard. All the dining halls have pretty good food. There are always a variety of hot food options, a salad bar, soup, pizza, and ice cream.

    Excellent, different options of food choices and even vegetarian meals. Great for picky eaters.

    The university does make an attempt; however, there's a reason UVA is not known for its food. Now it's not as though health codes are being violated or anything of that sort; the dining halls are average and could use improvement. There are some very nice dining spots off campus and the pavilion at Newcomb features several quality eateries. Honestly, this is a minor point for me as the quality of the food is of little consequence. I'm not a picky eater and if I have to suffer through a few unpleasant meals to attend UVA, no big deal.

    The dining halls are okay; they are not the best though. Sometimes the cooks would serve under-cooked food (e.g. chicken that is still pink). For other food options, there is a Chick-Fil-A and delicious sushi at the Pav. Also, there are three food trucks at the Amphitheater every weekday from roughly 12-3pm. Because University of Virginia is close to the Corner, students often walk towards the Corner to eat at the restaurants (e.g. Bodo's Bagels, Jimmy John's, Sakura, Boylan Heights, etc.) Therefore, food is not a problem here.

    If you want it, there is a frat/sorority for you.

    Greek life is fairly active at UVA, with a large variety of social and academic frats and sororities to choose from. Many people are involved in Greek life, but it is by no means ubiquitous or necessary to join a frat - many people do not and are very socially active.

    Although I am not personally involved in Greek life, all of my friends that are seem to really love it! A third of UVA students are a part of the Greek community.

    The biggest factor for me has been the number of professional Greek organizations on campus, which is very useful for networking and meeting fellow professionals. It helps when upper class students actively help the newbies understand the professional world they will be entering.

    Although I am not associated with Greek Life here at University of Virginia, there are pros and cons to joining them. One pro is that you will meet numerous people and that you will create connections through networking. Another pro is that you will participate in many opportunities that people who are not associated will not participate with you. However, there have controversies in which some fraternities have gone too far with hazing. In fact, UVA have stopped a few fraternities from being active because of hazing issues.

    Greek life is a big part of UVA that 30% of the student population partake in. It's a great way to meet amazing brothers and sisters and create lasting memories and relationships.
