    Not gonna lie, the food is actually pretty good. The have different dinners each night, which can be amazing at times! and if there is nothing special you see, they always have yummy regulars like wraps and burgers!

    I'm not going to lie, that food in the dining hall gets old. Its the same things the whole semester and its not always good. There are a lot of options and they are allergy friendly but it gets old. There is always the option of keeping food in your room which I highly recommend because you won't always like what is in the dining hall. Also there are so many places that you can eat that aren't very expensive and only a short walk from campus.

    there are a lot of spots to eat on campus. in the three biggest buildings (student union, the library, and the north west quad) there are coffee shop. in the student union, there are a few fast food places, where you can get anything from stir fry to taco bell, to ice cream. right down the street from campus is a line of a lot of chain restaurants. though there are a lot more places a little further away that are so worth the bus ride or walk. downtown has a ton of great places, but there are still a lot of places on the east side that are a little cheaper and closer. there is also shorewood, which has a lot of great places as well. really nobody could go wrong trying to find somewhere to eat.

    It's pretty good. Tons of greasy stuff though, the freshman 15 is real I tell ya! Of course the fruit and vegetables and healthy stuff is weighted and you end up paying more.

    Cafeteria food is never good. However, Sandburg food actually isn't all that bad! I can think of a few amazing examples that I grab each and every time that make me feel a little bit better inside! Mac 'n Cheese is something they do well! And let me tell you, for once I'm actually able to eat puppy chow year round now that I live here. (how amazing!) There's also various other places to grab a bite to eat. The Union is home to fast food restaurants and even an ice cream shop! In the Union there's also the Gasthaus. It's home to some of the best food on campus. The underground restaurant is a must when attending Milwauke!

    Greek Life is sub par. It's easy to get to know everyone cause it is so small and it is easy to get positions if you are dedicated

    The sororities are real bleeps except for one which accepts you no matter who you are, and it also accepts trans students. Also watch out, some of the hazing of the sororities and fraternities has gotten way out of control. I'm guessing numbers are down this year.

    Greek life is very small here on campus but it is expanding with a new sorority that was recently added. Greek life is growing each year. We make sure to plan many events within the Greek council to be more involved on campus and to get more students involved, also to just have some fun and reach out to people.

    Most of the teaches don't really help you and want you to fail to weed people out since there are a lot of people taking this major. IF YOU ARE AN OUT OF STATE STUDENT STAY AWAY. SUCKS

    Greek life isn't big here because it is illegal to have more than three unrelated people living under one roof. There are fraternities and sororities but they are more like clubs here.
