    there are currently two dining halls. the food is good and there is only two outside places which are the chikfila and a sandwich shop. we don't have a lot only because there are plenty of restaurants near the school that are walking distance as well and if you drive it's not a far drive either. i do wish there were a bit more options but we are having a new student center built that is supposed to have another dining hall too.

    They do have chickfila, a variation of subway (called Sammie's), and a Starbucks on campus along with the main dining hall. The food in the main dining hall isn't always the best, but there are plenty of other options to pick from and there are lots of fast food and restaurants right next to campus. They also sometimes give free tacos from taco trucks and other food too on certain occasions.

    Food on campus is expensive, and not always that great. There is a Chik-fil-a in the basement of the Admin building but it costs more then a normal one. You're better off running across the street to one of the nearby restaurants.

    The food was terrible and extremely expensive. There were very limited options and almost nothing healthy was ever available. Your best bet is to go grocery shopping and luckily, there's a Central Market less than a few minutes away from campus.

    The lunches in the student hall are nice, and its a buffet, you don't like that theres a Sammy's and chickfila about a two minute walk away. If not that then you can take the shuttle or walk to java on the hill, where they have more junk kind of food, like pizza.

    greek life is so great. at first i didn't think i would be the type to be in greek life but when i met all the wonderful people they were so open and welcoming. each sorority/fraternity has its own mission and philanthropy and you really find your place and get to be involved more as well as find your sisters/brothers that you will have for life and do things together.

    Greek life is prevalent, but not too in-your-face. They throw pretty great parties and their members are incredibly nice.

    The greek life here is not traditional at all. They have the AKA's, but the others I had never heard of until I got here. So, if you are looking for a specific greek society, I suggest you check before you get here.

    Freshmen, or at least people with less than 12 hours are unable to be apart of greek life until those 12 hours are received from school. So usually, after your first semester you are able to join. There is always drama in any club, please do not let that scare you out of joining. I already picked the sorority I want to rush in the spring. Everyone so far is really sweet. One girl gave me a I could care less look, but I complemented her and automatically I could tell she was nice. It was only a bad day. That's all it really is. People take things personally and are quick to react. DO join GREEK, I hear it is a blast! UIW requires service, but I love serving anyways and greek is a big way to get hours or find an organization you love supporting. That's exactly why the founders created them. To support your community. Just happens sororities (since I'm a girl) get to be girly while they so them and have super secret ceremonies I do not know about! ;D
