    I don't have much to say about the cafeteria on Main campus because I have only been there once. Its is buffet style eating and it all looks clean. I do have a lot to say about the Riverpark dining. We have a place called the Den. Over the years I has been pretty inconsistent. For the first semester here, the food was great although there were not many healthy options. Then for the next year and a half the food was pretty bad. You never knew whether you were gonna get what you ordered or even if they kept track of your ticket. Everything was fried and pretty bland. I stopped eating there for a while because of it. Then the Den moved to a new location. This new location, where it is located now, is much cleaner although kind of out of the way. The food this last year has gotten progressively better. They have extensively expanded their selection and the quality of the food and service has significantly improved. The hot meal is still pretty bland but they occasionally have specials that are quite good. Their ordered meals are very tasty and there are a lot more healthy items. Its not the best but they have made leaps and bound from what they used to be.

    At CSU there is always something good to eat. From chik fil a, to subway, to the cafes on campus. The best part is, it is all included as a part of your meal plan!

    The food is amazing. They always have many options like pizza, or grilled cheese and burgers to a salad bar everyday. The servers are always really nice and ask you how you day is going.

    Food in the cafe is, in my opinion, fairly expensive. They also have a small area across from the cafeteria where they have Chick-Fil-A and soon to be Subway at each restaurant's regular prices. In the library and Howard Hall they have Einsteins Bagels, and in the bookstore they have a small selection of drinks and snacks.

    Greek life on campus is very active. Every September, the sororities have a sorority rush event to recruit new members. The sororities and fraternities often sponsor campus events, mostly at the beginning of the Fall term and the end of the Spring term.
