    I don't feel qualified to answer, because I don't go to school here.

    The food is great at first, but after a month it becomes repetitive. There are some days that there are surprise or themed meals such as a thanksgiving dinner, and those are fantastic. Their burgers are amazing as well, but everything feels really unhealthy after being there for so long. Make sure you set yourself a limit if you don't want to gain the freshman fifteen.

    Disgusting food. You'd be better off cooking your own meals, which would save you literally over $1,200.

    The dining hall on the weekends is terrible. On the weekdays is bearable but still expensive.

    The food and dining variety is very good. I like how MSU-Moorhead has little shops and restaurants you can buy food at. It's very convenient for on-the-go students! The reason I only gave food and dining three stars is because of Kise, the main dining facility. I only gave it three stars because they don't always cook the food right... In example the vegetables are usually undercooked, and the rice is always overcooked. Kise has a lot of differnet food options, but they need to work on their cooking times.

    I love Kise! The variety is amazing. On any given day, around dinner, you can have a hamburger, sandwich, pizza, salads, the choice for dinner, or cereal. The drinks vary from juices to Pepsi and Coke. There really is nothing more you could ask for at Kise. The only downside is the choice meet is often a slab of either beef or pork, which is starting to get old.

    It's your average college food. There are many dining options to choose from which is always a good thing and never makes eating boring!

    I'm not involved in Greek life however judging from what I've seen around campus about Greek life, the sororities and fraternity groups are friendly and inviting.

    Everyone I know that took part on the Greek Life at MSUM said they are a great way to have fun and to make lots of friends. There are at least three sororities and they just established a fraternity in 2012.
