    Lots of food options on and around campus and most accept your student flex, basically cash that is a part of your meal plan. There is an all you can eat buffet, Starbucks, Chick fil a, market, mexican place, and more.

    There are quite a few locations on campus to get food, and a lot of variety to go along with that. That being said, the quality of some dishes are average.

    we're rated 69th in the country for food and dining options, but it's mostly because of all of the variety we have to offer. there are 3 main dining halls on campus, each with different ways of pricing and paying for food options. there is also a campus market and a bunch of coffee shops to go to, as well as a restaurant/bar. the food isn't terrible, but it's not amazing either. it's your typical college food.

    Duquesne's food and dining is delicous. They offer several different options and are continuing to expand. There newest addition Freshens has quickly become a student favorite. Instead of going into great detail about our food and dining I am going to attatch the schools link to campus dining: They do it much more justice than I can.

    Duquesne recently signed a new contract with a new food provider, food is very good for a college atmosphere. Daily specials insure variety every day. Also numerous dining facilities allow you to change up where you eat every day.

    Although I do not participate, many of my close friends are involved in Greek life. These aren't your normal sororities. They do volunteer work, are not cliquey, and go out of there way to be accepting.

    There are a good amount of fraternities and sororities on campus, as well as academically oriented and even ethnically oriented ones. From what I have heard, Greek Life on campus is a good bonding experience and provides great connections and relationships for people, both men and women.
