    The food on campus is good but not great. There's a few places to get food on campus but 2 places are open on the weekends. The Cafe food is alright depending on what time you go there.

    The food in the cafeteria is great! They have a chef on staff to make awesome food for everyone. There are plenty of vegetarian options as well. Compared to my other experiences with cafeteria food, this is superior.

    The food is good believe me and you should have no problem gaining the freshmen 15 if you don't watch out. All in all these tons of coffee shops and sub shops where you can go to watch TV and eat.

    Carthage now has a wide array of food options on campus. However even with a meal plan, it is expensive to eat. So budget your weekly amount carefully.

    The cafeteria, corner store, the Union are all places to find the best food. For those vegetarians, come here and dine on the best.

    The cafe has good food once in a while. Carthage has other restaurants, but they are fast food restaurants, Baja, WOW, Einsteins, Starbucks, Jamba, Freshens, and Seattle's Best. These are good restaurants,but not recommended for healthy eaters.

    Greek life is not very big on Carthage. There are only 2 national soroites and 3 national fraternities. Greek life is very close knit and involved on campus.

    Greek Life is an awesome community to be a part of on campus. Each fraternity and sorority is different and known for hosting different events. Although they are different, each sorority and fraternity gets along with one another.

    Greek life is strong, but there is a large percentage of students who are not involved. We have academic, social, honorary, and service fraternities and sororities. We have greek life at both the local and national levels, and those who choose not to participate are still widely respected by those in Greek life.
