    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!

    TONS of options. They have tons of food in the main hall. They had a delicious ice cream bar. They also have restaurants in the dorms.

    Love how the food plan is adaptive for each student and how much they plan on eating.

    The food is good but you end up getting tired of having the same meals each week.

    Food and dinning is very organized and well prepared. Never a disappointment. There are always many choices for dinning.

    There are varieties of places to eat in the Union. There's the Grind and Restor. But I hear it's better to go to Starbucks than the Grind. It's pricey. I don't have the meal plan so I don't know about that.

    Although colleges have a bad reputation for food, the vast majority of UW-Milwaukee's food is made in house and/or produced locally. It is clear that they try to change the status quo of poor food quality.

    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.

    Greek Life is not a major component of the culture at UWM, but there still are Fraternities and Sororities one can join.

    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.

    The Greek life is essentially non-existent and I love that. I went to another school where is was common, and I hated it. If Greek life is for you, this is not the right school for you. This is a pretty rugged, down-to-Earth type of school. Elitists generally not welcome.
