    APSU has several great options for dining including Starbucks, Blondies, Einsteins Bagels- the best place ever to pick up a breakfast bagel and piping hot chocolate in the winter- and a Subways. There is also a general cafeteria as well as a Southern fare eatery and a Mexican mini restaurant. APSU is affiliated with Pepsi so in addition to all the flavored water and Cheerwine you can drink your weight in Pepsi.Also, for select student organizations APSU has a catering service to help plan, deliver and serve snacks and/or meals depending on the event.

    The food is awesome. Even now that I'm off campus, I get a meal plan. I was surprised at the healthy choices it has for being a southern school. Really fresh and good. The cooks have a ton of experience. They even bring in local farmers so you can see where your food is coming from.

    Freshman 15 is REALLY hard to avoid! There is free food on almost every corner, Chic-Fil-A and Papa John's are guaranteed to be huge contributors to weight gain. Luckily for the students, there is a beautiful, free gym on campus.

    The food and dining at Austin Peay is great. The terrace is a great place to eat it is located in the Erikson Building. There food all around is good. It is definitely better than high school food.

    It is interesting to watch how the sororities battle against other sororities in games and activities. The fraternities also battle against each other.

    The campus may not have that many sororities or fraternities, but one few that the do have are still quite exceptional. Their sororities and fraternities love to get involved as much as they can. They make you feel right at home as soon as you meet with them. They do things for big companies like St. Jude Children's Hospital, and the Special Olympics. They are just as involved as other well known sororities and fraternities, maybe even more those them.

    The Greek life at Austin Peay State University is ok. The group is more active during the spring with step shows and campus activities.
