    There are different options of dining halls and restaurants on campus that take RDA. There is a lot of variety.

    The food is edible, but that's about it. The dining centers on campus employ students, and there is much less quality control for their work than there should be. Some days the food is good, some days not so much. You never know quite what to expect at the dining centers. I wish they'd wipe the tables down a little more frequently, too.

    The food is balanced. You have your servings of meat, pasta, fruits and vegetables. They also include a chef's menu where they serve meals that you would get at home. You have your salad bar where you can create your salad, and a desert area where you get cakes, cookies, and everything in between. If you like to drink coffee, they have an area for that too. As well as a small tea section. If you don't like the dinning hours, you have Late night where you can get food to go until 1 a.m.

    The food differs depending where you eat: Hillside has a lot of healthier options, Southside has a wide variety of options at inexpensive prices, and Northside has an option for a buffet at certain times of the day. All places are good, just stay away from the French toast at Southside.

    The ambiance of the dining halls are lovely, like a restaurant ! There are three major halls- Southside, Hillside, and Northside. Tons of choices and some are consistent daily. Residence dining accounts can be used in the cafes and coffee shops with Starbucks coffee served as well. But be careful what you eat here, honestly. Occasionally, people get food poisoning or else immediately sick after eating. I work in a dining hall and make cleaning and food handling by the book my standard.

    The Greek life at WSU is top notch. Greek row is so gorgeous and the houses are so pretty and nicely maintained, even the frats. It is definitley something I will be partaking in.

    This school has a strict policy on hazing. It is not allowed in any circumstance. This is great since it ensures the safety of the student body. The houses are really friendly, and have more access on school activities. The older students make sure the new incoming class feels safe, and welcomed to the Coug family.

    Greek life takes over. Sorority girls and fraternity guys live on Greek Row in about 30-40 total chapters. If you are a freshman, Hillside of campus is where you should live until you are living in the House.

    Greek life is incredible. With tons of sororities and fraternities to pick from there is a place from you. Everyone is extremely friendly with each other which makes Homecoming in the fall and Greek Week in the spring a total blast. It is perfect for bringing the social butterfly out in any introvert(like it did for me) and is the best networking opportunity out there.

    This is the best thing that could ever happen to someone at a university. You can build relationships with so many people you may never have met in your entire time at college if you did not join. I have built so many of these relationships, and through the ups and downs, I would not trade my sisters or any other friendships from other Greek community members for anything in the world. I know they will always be there for me, and Greek Life is REALLY a lifelong treasure.
