    On campus there are three dining halls. If you have a traditional meal plan you can only eat at these three buffet-style locations. I would recommend getting flex-14. With this meal plan you are able to grocery shop with unused meal swipes, you have access to other eating venues on campus, and you can mix up your meals when you get tired of the dining halls.

    There are a lot of food options. There are three very nice dinning halls that serve different things. There is a restaurant and a food court in the student center that have good food as well. There are also markets that are like grocery stores you can buy food and supplies at for your room. There are also a number of campus cafes, food trucks on the green, and places to eat uptown. I suggest getting a meal plan with flex so that you can use it at the cafes and student center and use extra meal swipes at the markets. Note: When you pick a meal plan you are stuck with it for the year. You can get what that is more expensive but not less. So start with less than you think you'll need.

    The food is more focused on quantity than quality but it's really not bad. There are markets to spend unused meals at that always had cookie dough and ice cream and real food if you're into that. I would for sure eat there again. They have lots of vegan, vegetarian and meat eater options. All of which are pretty delicious.

    The three on campus dining halls make a great effort to taste good as much as they do to be healthy. You can have basically whatever you want, twice every day.

    All three dining halls are really good options, especially with the million dollar renovations on one last year. There are plenty of food stations between the three, providing enough variety to keep from getting sick of it. There are also plenty of good places to eat uptown of you need something else.

    It's not a big enough deal that you are required to be in it. I am not in greek life and I have never felt left out as a result.

    Greek life is pretty big here but if you're not into that then its not a big deal either. Most people do not care if you are in Greek life but it is a great way to get out there and meet more people and make more friends.

    We have an office dedicated to Greek Life. The Greeks on campus host a lot of fun school related and non-school related events throughout the year. Although its not for everyone, and not everyone wants to join, the Greeks definitely bring lots of fun to the campus.

    Greek life is fairly big on campus, with multiple different types of sororities and fraternities available for people to join. There is a recruitment process, of which you much register the summer before classes start. It is a great opportunity to join a group of women or men who have the same values as you and ones with which you can learn and grow as a student, leader, and human being.

    The Fraternities and Sororities on campus are held in high regards, and they are always out helping the community in Athens. There are honor frats and sororities for every different college on campus, along with social greek organizations. Greek life is a major part of any college experience!

    Greek Life is great at Ohio University. There are many options in chapters for anyone, but all around, all the chapters are highly involved, do well academically, and help the community year-round. Each chapter has a very strong sisterhood or brotherhood, it's more like a family, even if they are a larger chapter. (Sororities range from 90-125 women and fraternities range typically from 30-60 members).
