Student Responses to Review Topic: Food And Dining

  • Ruby from Portland, OR

    The best place to eat on campus is Hamilton's Big Mouth Burrito, it's better than Chipotle! The UO brags about having so many dining options, and I think this is one of the things they don't actually fib about. They have veggie, vegan, dairy, gluten free options, and they all taste great too. I felt like I was eating at actual restaurants, not just "the dorms".

    UO has so many dining halls, it is amazing. They have everything from burritos to smoothies to sushi to stir fry. The dining halls are spread out across campus so its always easy to find a bit to eat.

    Okay for food I can't really say much considering I went for the most budget friendly plan. But there are options all over where to head for food, we have different local shops spread around the campus, and we have a location where all the big corporate foods are and it's awesome to go pick something up when you are tired of your everyday food.

    I went here for a volleyball camp and the cafeteria was amazing and had one of the nicest campuses I've ever seen!

    The cafeteria food offered there is pretty good. The menu changes everyday, aside from a salad bar, dessert bar, and drink machines. I have had no bad experiences with the food at all.

    I worked and lived on campus last summer and ate at Carson and Dux Bistro (those were the only two open) but the food was pretty good most of the time!

    There are quite a few food options, which is nice. One thing that stinks for me is there is no dining hall in my own dorm hall, so I have to go outside, but besides that the food is pretty good. We even have a Mongolian BBQ knockoff place. And, if you ever want a sandwich, I recommend the Caprese.

    The food appeases everyone's palate - from raw vegans to the carnivorous caveman. It is easy to eat a healthy, balanced, and nutritious meal at any of the venues. There are so many cafe and pastry venues to choose from that are open until late. The meal plans are quite reasonable and efficient, using a point-based system.

    Unlike OSU, there's night life without having to be a part of Greeklife. Though there are some frats to be wary of (coughsaecough), most of them produce great folks and are easy to work with.

    Tons of students here are into the Greek life, and I have several friends in Sororities. But don't be worried if you aren't interested in it - there are definitely a large chunk of people who aren't involved in Greek life. Also, if you are looking for cool Greek houses, this is for sure the place to go. They are mansions!

    Greek life at Oregon is for the most part, a major party scene but it can be a great way to make new friends and get connected.

    I highly recommend joining Greek life. It's a great way to meet people and excellent for incoming freshman that don't know anyone else. Really the only way under classmen get into parties.

    The Greek Life isn't for everyone, however, i would encourage people to try it. I went into it and decided to drop, but I met so many people and they still say hi to me and we talk all the time. I even happened to have classes with some of them, and they love their greek life.

    I have no experience with Greek life, but the people I met who are in Greek life, for the most part, seem to love it. While those who are in it love it, Greek life is not necessary to have fun; you can tag along at several frat parties, and personally speaking, I've never felt any pressure to join Greek life. If you're in it, great! If not, don't worry.

    Greek life is fairly prominent, but it's not so prominent that if you aren't in it, you aren't considered a square. Everyone is pretty nice for the most part, and they do a lot for the city and the people of Eugene!
