    Not quite just like home, but pretty close. Fried chicken is a staple for lunch and dinner. We always have choices of pasta, salads, pizzas, hamburgers and other items. With your meal card, you can eat as much as you want.

    Honestly, the food is nasty. I got tired of eating the same food every week. Can't complain of a free meal though!

    Personally I gave the cafe service a three because I dislike the food served. There aren't really a lot of options to choose from during the week which is an inconvenience. Coming from the Midwest to the South is a very big change when it comes to food.

    At AAMU the Cafe is the place I like to hang out the most, not just because they serve good food,but because you get the chance to relax and meet new people or just hang out with your friends and talk about anything while your eating your delicious meal. Every month they always make sure they serve ice cream and cake to celebrate anyone who has a birthday during that time of the month. On holidays when you go to the cafe, they always have a big dinner and music playing and decorations everywhere. The Cafe is a place where any student can take a break from anything and just have fun.

    You're paying close to if not more than 2,000$ for horrible food. You'll be eating yesterday's food in unfathomable combinations. The meats aren't fully cooked and extremely greasy. They do not have diet nor allergy friendly options; no gluten free, vegan, peanut free, nor other healthy options aside from a salad bar.

    The Greeks on campus helped us to move all of our stuff in on move-in day. They performed a street show for us during our first week on campus.

    On the campus you will always see the Alphas,Kappas,Aka's,or Q-dogs, walking around showing off there Greek colors. In the Fall we have step shows and a block party, and at the block party you will see all the Greeks strolling.

    A blessing and a curse. They can either help the group of the community or hinder true growth of men and women. Some focus more on their social status than they do on what they've done to achieve it.

    The Greeks are very much alive and well on campus. Appropriately named ESW, or Every Sunny Wednesday, is where you will see most of the Greeks. This event is on-campus right by the bookstore from 12pm-2pm. You will see not only Greeks, but Non Greeks as well. Both types of organizations host events, especially around homecoming week. As a freshman, you won't be able to pledge until your sophomore year, but don't let that deter you from still becoming a member of a Non Greek organization.
