    Once again, I never actually lived on campus so I am not sure what the dining halls were like. However I have eaten at Davies (the main student building) and it actually has some pretty good food there. A wide variety for entrees and many options for little snacks or grab and go lunches.

    The food at the cafeteria is pretty decent I think. It's my favorite spot to eat, they give you plenty of choices. The food court like area in the student center always has people in it and also offers you a decent amount of choices.

    Much to choose from and very good, sometimes it could be better, but I'm not complaining because it is way better than high school food.

    Many places for dining at school as well as many restaurants surrounding the upper campus. Guaranteed to please even the picky eaters. I'm glad it isn't like standard high school lunch where you are very limited. The dining center in Davie's Center is like a food court at the mall along with Hilltop. Very pleased.

    Hilltop has an okay selection but Davies center does not have an array of healthy block meals to choose from.

    If you like food, my guess is you will love the options here. The choices vary daily, but they always have fresh fruit and healthier choices.

    Good food, but not the best. Davies student center has awesome food and so does Einstein's but the the Riverview Cafe is not my first pick for food.

    Hilltop Cafe gets very tiresome after about two months. The meals are usually not very appetizing, and the other side has Mexican food, sandwiches, and noodles, which are all very good, but still wear on you after a while. Hilltop has a great variety- vegan and gluten-free options are available and there is more fruit and breakfast-like options. Davies has better tasting food, at the cost of being unhealthier.

    I don't know much about Greek life on campus. There are a few fraternities and sororities but nothing like it would be at a bigger school.

    Have seen some Greeks live in downtown Eau Claire but haven't heard any bad things about them. The expected crazy Greeks from movies and television have not to be discovered on this campus. Greeks are very serious about their organizations.

    There are Greek houses or groups or whatever you call them available but I'm not a very good judge considering I haven't and don't plan on joining any of them.

    Greek life is dying here at UWEC. There are 3 sororities and 3 fraternities. It's not a huge thing on campus.

    There are 3 sororities and 3 fraternities. If Greek life is what you want to do, the people in it really enjoy it.

    I do not know much about the Greek Life at UW Eau Claire. I do know that they participate in some wonderful fundraisers however.
