    Main Street is filled with so many great places to eat. Not to mention we have one of the largest dining halls on the east coast! Options are endless, and there’s plenty of options for those with allergies or specific food preferences!

    I`ve had lunch and dinner there before and not only is it really delicious, it also has a lot of variety of food. And from what I`ve heard, it`s affordable.

    Caesar Rodney Dining Hall is one of the most acclaimed college dining halls in the country, seeing as it is the biggest one on the east coast. It offers a wide selection of all kinds of dining options, including vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, and kosher, just to ensure that students of all diverse walks of life can enjoy a meal. The food is always fresh and tasty, and the school's ice cream shop, UDairy, is a permanent fixture in the dining hall, which is a nice touch!

    Great! UD just opened up a new dining hall and is renovating another next year. The new Cesar Rodney is great with over 12 stations that have vegan, gluten free, vegetarian, kosher and so many more options!

    The food isn't as bad as everyone says it is. The dining halls are decent, and if you're craving fast food, there's plenty of options available in Trabant & Perkins Student Centers (Chick-fil-a, Burger Studio, Dunkin' Donuts, the list goes on). Main Street also runs right through campus, with a nice variety of shops and restaurants, for those nights out with friends.

Student Responses to Review Topic: Greek Life

    Greek life is pretty prevalent on the University of Delaware campus, but not if you do not wish to be a part of it. Plenty of students are involved with Greek life, but it is not so prominent on campus that you will feel like an outsider if you're not in a fraternity or sorority. I am personally not currently a part of Greek life, but I am considering rushing in the spring of this coming year. All of the Blue Hens that I have met who are part of a fraternity or sorority are very kind and genuine people who care a lot about their brotherhood or sisterhood and what their chapter stands for.

    Greek life is present on campus, but social life doesn't revolve around it. There are plenty of parties every weekend, so if you're looking for a party, you'll find one. If partying isn't your thing, you'll find other people to hang out with. If you're interested in rushing a fraternity or sorority, there are plenty of options. There are social sororities/fraternities, interest-related ones, and professional ones. It's definitely something to look into once you get on campus!

    Greek life is big on campus. Many freshman join sororities and fraternities their second semester. Multicultural Greek life is small, but it does exist. Also, if Greek life is not for you, it will not affect your social life at all. Although many people happen to be in sororities, everyone is generally so nice that you'll make friends in classes, in dorms, in dining halls, on the walk to class, in clubs, in activities, and basically everywhere.

    20% of students partake in Greek Life. It's honestly not a big deal whether you do or not. We also have a wide variety of Greek Life. There are also community service and multicultural fraternities and sororities as well.

    Greek Life is a huge on campus. Those who are looking to join a Sorority of Fraternity can join during rush in the Fall or Spring. Many relationships can be created through the Greek Life at University of Delaware
