    There are so many options in the Union, it's ridiculous. You can grab anything you want basically. You'll never go hungry! Also, there's a Starbucks on campus for all you coffee cravers!

    The food is pretty good, I prefer to eat in the student union when I have time. If I don't I usually run by the C-Store to get a sub.

    The food in the dinning halls is not all that great. The hangar basically provides the fast food that you can get in between classes, while the Union is more of sit down food. There is a bit of variety in the food, like Asian, Mexican, and Italian food, but after a whole year, you are most likely sick and tired of both of the food halls and ready to go home.

    The food itself is pretty good, there has been a push to bring more organic and locally sourced food to the cafeterias. However, it is very expensive, and the Meal Plan is an absolute rip-off, full of hidden fees. If you live in the dorms, you are required to buy the Meal Plan unfortunately. You will get far more food for your money by buying your own groceries and cooking.

    Food is about average of any college experience. We have multiple meal plans to choose from and several places to eat on campus. Now, I have heard many students being sick of the food by the end of their first year, but that is very typical of any college you would attend. On campus, we have a Tim Horton's, Denny's, Pizza Hut and many other food options. Off campus, there is Wendy's, McDonald's, Pizza Hut, Taco Bell, Bob Evans, Quaker Steak and Lube as well as other local restaurants.

    The food is too expensive for what you receive. The food is also not very healthy and lacks healthy vegetarian/ vegan options.

    The Greek Life is really nice here. There are numerous sororities or fraternities you can join and find a place to call home! Don't be scared of horror stories of Greek Life, or of bad movie displays-- it's not the same!

    It's available, especially since there is a business school at WSU, but it's certainly not what most people come to WSU for. You can get involved if you want, but it's really not a big focus, except in the fall when new freshman arrive.

    There are a lot of sororities and fraternities here at WSU. There a lot of big ones, and then a lot of smaller ones. If you aren't satisfied with them, you could always start your own! People are starting new sororities and fraternities all the time!
