    Washakie is actually pretty good for cafeteria food, with a good variety. There's also a good variety of other places to eat around campus. The coffee places on campus are great, too. They aren't Starbucks, but the use Starbucks brand coffee.

    The food can be great but can not be great at the same time. More on the tasty side, there is a lot to choose from. There is even a section for vegetarians. The vast variety of food offered is great to not get bored of the everyday ordeal.

    The food is great, however you can only use meal swipes at the dinning hall and not at any of the on campus restaurants, but you can use dinning dollars. Other than that it's awesome! Great, healthy and wholesome, it keeps the brain going. Not to mention the late night snack!

    If you drive around Laramie, you'll find some familiar fast food places that you might be accustomed to elsewhere. It does appear that they have dining halls, and I did see some small UW coffee shops around campus.

    I don't eat on campus much because the food here is all right, but pretty expensive. I buy groceries in Laramie and cook my own meals.

    There's a good variety of fraternities and sororities to choose from, they are very nice and inviting, but Greek life isn't for everyone, they have meetings weekly to keep their houses in order and they seem to understand the boundaries set by the school.

    I am not a part of Greek life but I have several friends who are. I know that our chapters are very much a part of the entire UW community and help put on events for the whole school as well as their own events. I have gone to our homecoming sing contest many times and had a great time with the people in Fraturnities and Sororities.

    It is not what the stereotype would have you think. They're friendly and open. They don't have silly competitions between each other.

    Greek life at the University of Wyoming is starting to grow. It has been small for a while and now with new leadership there is a positive future for it. The fraternities and sororities are very involved on campus and in the community and push each other through healthy competition to be leaders on the campus. I am in a fraternity and I would strongly recommend Greek life to anyone else because of all the memories I've made and people I've met. The people you meet will impact you for the rest of your life and help you become the person you want to be. Greek life does events such as socials among other Greek houses, philanthropy events, campus events, community events, member events, and much more. Rush week is at the start of every school year for new students to see each house and get an idea about what each house is about. That is where you can see which place is a fit for you if you are interest and if not it is a good place to meet some really cool people.

    The community is small in Wyoming but there is a home for everyone if you are willing to look for it. As a sorority girl myself I can tell you that I wouldn't have traded it for anything and some of my best memories came from those girls not only from the times we spent going out on random adventure or to social events but studying in the library with my sisters. My sorority also offered an opportunity to have a professor dinner which in turn gave me some personal relationships with some of my professors that later benefited me when I was applying for Grad school through recommendation letters. College classes are huge and having group dinners made by a chef is a great way to stand out to them in a positive way.
