    Used to be 5 stars until they took away Cate. Now the restaurants at the Union is always crowded. The Caf (buffet) is still glorious as always, but Cate restaurants will be sorely missed.

    There are two Chick-fil-as on campus, a variety of food and a salad bar in the restaurant attached to the dorms, and very nice local and chain restaurants on campus corner.

    OU has a nationally renowned cafeteria (with the ONLY all-you-can-eat Chick-fil-a in the country). Additionally, we have numerous other locations around campus where you can eat anything from pancakes to burgers to gyros. If you're feeling hungry in the middle of the night, we have a 24 hour restaurant at the Student Union. There is a restaurant within ~3 minute walk from anywhere on campus.

    The options galore. There are a wide variety of pubs, cafes, and shops located around Campus Corner. Under each Residential Hall are small eateries like Raisin' Canes, Couch Express, and Xcetra. The University of Oklahoma also has a couple of dining halls. One being the most prominent is the Caf, short for Couch Caf. The Caf is an all-you-can-eat buffet serving different assortments of food from all over the globe including an all-you-can-eat Chick-fil-a. Food from Greece, Italy, China and Mexico are all available. Served alongside are other options that serve to be a healthier option (e.g. salad bar, fitter foods, and vegetarian station). And that is just the Caf alone. In other dining halls, like Cate and the Union, they serve Quiznos, Taco Mayo, Starbucks and even one restaurant that opens 24 hours, providing us with limitless varieties of food, promising us that we will never become enervated.

    The food here is awesome. They do this thing where you have points which equal one point is one dollar and then you also have meal plans. The meals are so great because they're so much variety to choose from, and everyone loves that you can use points in the restaurants nearby.

    The caf has tons of options to choose from, including an all you can eat Chick-fil-A and plenty of options for vegetarians and vegans. There are also several places on campus where you can get meals if you are tired of the caf, like Crossroads, which is open 24/7. Always nice if you start craving waffles at 3am.

    Greek life is loads of fun. They go out and party almost every Friday night, however be mindful that OU is a dry campus, which means we do not allow drug and alcohol on campus.

    Basically runs this campus in regards to parties and trend setting. This isn't always a good thing but it isn't too over the top.

    OU has one of the strongest Greek communities in the nation! About 30% of OU students are affiliated with a Greek organization. These organizations offer great opportunities to network, meet new people, and create life-long friendships! I highly recommend Greek life if you are coming from a smaller school or don't know many people going to OU because it makes the transition much easier.

    An awesome experience. Its not for everyone, but if it is, it will allow you to find a community of brotherhood, or sisterhood which will last a lifetime. Its also a way of making great contacts. Alumni of Greek are an awesome way of life after college.

    I am currently pledging and I wouldn't change anything. Greek life is a great way to get involved and give back to the community. There are so many Greek organizations, so many to choose from. Choose where you feel at home.
