    The food here at Appalachian State is phenomenal not only because we get to choose from a variety of food options, but also because the food service staff is so helpful and kind towards the students.

    We've got just about everything. Amazing local food: The Peddler (steak), Proper (homestyle country), and Macados (anything and everything) are just a few of the best! But we also have fast food and sit down places that you can find about anywhere, and all within walking distance. The dining hall is pretty average, but after about 5 months you might get tired of it.

    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!

    The Greek life is big, and one can see sorority girls and fraternity guys walking around performing different duties all over campus. During Rush Week, the center of campus named Sanford Mall was covered with different Greek life tents.

    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.
