    The food in the caf is good, but you will eventually get tired of it. However, they do have special nights where the menu has deluxe dishes. For instance, seafood or steak night.

    The cafeteria is great when you first start. There is a giant buffet surrounding the area. You get tired of the same foods after a while though.

    The food is questionable at time in the cafeteria. Some of the pasta dishes they serve are pretty descent as well as their break feast items they serve. However, I wonder about the hidden calories and the overall healthiness of the dishes that are served in the cafeteria.

    The first few weeks of classes, the food is second to none in the cafeteria. However it tends to slack off later in the year. They do have several events, usually once a month, throughout the year with really good food. Also, the Acansa dining hall has a grill, a Mexican restaurant, a Chinese restaurant, and a Chic'fil'a.

    Last year alone, we had over two hundred females go through formal fall recruitment; that's an Arkansas State University first! Depending on what route you are wanting to take, I would advise you to visit http://www.astate.edu/a/leadership-center/greek-life/

    I have been to a few of the fraternity parties because my brother is in one of the campus fraternities. He always speaks highly of his frat and of the others on campus as well. My aunt and grandmother were both members of one of the campus sororities and have nothing negative to say there either, but personally I don't have great knowledge on this subject.

    I am involved in the Alpha Gamma Delta chapter of Greek Life at ASU. It is a great opportunity that I believe everyone should become a part of.

    Greek Life at ASU is superb. With new sorority houses being built, the pull for students in the Greek community has also increased. There are many different place where students can feel at home.
