    Again, I cannot personally say, so that's why I only give it 4 stars. However, I've seen it a couple times, and I liked what I saw; neither have I heard my friend or any of his friends complain about it! From I-don't-know-what-time-in-the-morning to about 4PM, there's a wide variety of restaurants open to everyone dotted all around campus. There's 2Mato, Denny's Fresh Express, Wendy's, Chick-Fil-A, Dunkin' Donuts, McDonald's, Jamba Juice, and several others I've never heard of before. Every building has a place where you can order something to eat or drink. In this regard, therefore, I'd say it's excellent!

    The food can be a bit expensive, and as a vegan I have to say my options are limited, but all the staff are lovely and very accommodating.

    There's actually a lot of places to eat on Campus. There's a Wendy's, Dunkin' Donuts, Starbucks, Denny's, and many other places to eat on campus. Although I haven't eaten there yet, the variety is quite impressive.

    Lots of fast food. Very limited healthy options and no vegetarian/vegan to speak of. Le sigh.

    I've never participated in or joined it, but I do know that YSU has one, because I heard a whole lot about it on Orientation Day!

    I don't live in a sorority so I don't know much about Greek life, but a couple girls I know are part of the same sorority and they absolutely love it.

    Greek houses are always throwing parties on the weekend with different fun themes. You can meet new people and have a great time. They also throw events that allows students the opportunity to volunteer and make a difference.
