    The food on campus is top notch. The chefs in the caf really know how to cook it up good. Plus, if you don't want what's in the caf, we have a Subway on campus that closed at 1AM which comes in handy.

    The caf is awesome. Unlike most large schools, fast food is not an option here. Although there is a Subway on campus, the cafeteria only serves fresh, home-cooked food.

    The Greek life here is very interesting. Since it is a smaller school, there are only 6 fraternities and 6 sororities, and they are all very welcoming. The parties are sub-par.

    Greek life is big on campus however you do not need to be involved in a Greek organization to make friends or have fun.

    greek life is a HUGE part of this campus, they're a part of just about anything and usually are huge sources of entertainment but they also do a lot of socially relevant things as well

    Incredible and in good use. Through the Greeks, outside events are planned, awareness is raised, and lectures are instated.
