    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.

    The food gets a little redundant, but nevertheless it's still pretty good. There is always the salad bar to eat.

    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.

    Yes. There are frat parties every weekend if thats your scene. But frats aren't necessary if you wish to have fun.

    Personally, as a first year I do not know that much about Greek life. I know some older students who are in it and always emphasize the quality of the Greek life here and who are very happy with their respective fraternity or sorority. Again, this goes back to figuring out what is best for you. I would say the best option is that if you are interested, look into it and you at least have time here since rush occurs after your first semester following winter break.

    I am not a member of Greek life so I can't say much about the internal side of it but I do spend a good amount of time on Rugby Road (where most of the frat houses are). The fraternities are very open to socializing with the non-Greek side of the school and host innumerable parties/philanthropic events every week. Unlike at many other schools I've visited, the Greek life at UVA is very open-minded and not nearly as exclusive.
