    I think the food here is excellent with 5 different on campus options for food there is plenty of places to eat and it is always quality food usually with healthy ingredients and multiple options that are quite affordable.

    TERRIBLE. The dining hall (yes there is only one) opens too early and closes too early. How do you expect college students to eat! Theres a place called "the spot" but its all just fried food and junk food in the dungeon of Aurora "University". Reason why they close so early because this school can't afford to pay students to work longer light!!

    The food and dining is fantastic. There are multiple dining areas in each hall of dorms, each set up differently. There are different kinds of food coming to the area almost everyday and you'll have all kinds of choices. It's almost like you have access to the Wild Country Buffet when ever you want. Also if you keep your academics up, you can get different awards in the cafeterias there.

    The food is okay not the best. The food at times are gross and repetitive. A plus is the campus have another option for food with is the spot. The Spot is unhealthy food though so if you want to eat bad food go here!

    I don't know much about greek life on campus and I don't think that they are that prevalent which I don't mind because the whole Greek Life lifestyle is not for me.

    Aurora has several fraternities and sororities, but we do not have housing just meetings and group activities. They also set up a booth at the club fair to get information in order to be initiated.

    There is none as far as I know, but I feel it's better that way. People are not forced into groups of specific demands and are free to take part in a variety of clubs and groups regaurdless of they're backgroud.

    The Greek life is decent I heard. The campus does not provide a place for Greek houses so it makes it difficult for the members to do certain things.

    Not much Greek Life. They have some, but they are more like clubs. Not the experience you would get at a bigger school in reference to Greek Life.
