    Extremely expensive for what you're paying for. The meal plans will leave your stomach growling consistently - I highly suggest bringing extra money with you for food outside of the dining halls.

    Ok, so the food might not be the best ever but there is Chick-fil-a and McCalister's that you can use your meal plan money at on campus and there are great places to eat within walking distance of campus.

    Central is decent, at best. WRAPPS and Mcallister's offer the best dining experience on campus. However, King st. offers many delicious and cheap choices!

    There is a lot of campus dining choices at central but after a while the do get boring, however there is an on-campus Market, which on my floor we would make dinner downstairs in the kitchen together! It was a nice get together.

    The food is pretty awesome. There's a lot of options to choice from and there's a market on campus to get food from so it's awesome.

    It exists, but people don't care if you're involved or not.

    The greek life is kind of a joke. To kids around here, it's just like buying friends. Although, it is nice to have these connections when you graduate college. Most of what I hear about them are the parties. There's nothing much to the greek life around here.

    Everyone I know in Greek Life enjoys it but Rushing can be very stressful and if you don't get in you'll probably be in a funk.

    There are several Fraternities and Sororities on campus that all have similar and different ideals. If you're interested, I'd recommend that you check them out.
