    They have a lot of different choices such as two cafeterias, Subway, Chic-Fli-A. Chiptole is across the street, so is Applebees and McDonalds.

    Food and dining locations are not bad. Tuesdays are usually great because there is more home style cooking. Both locations do not provide the same exact menu so there is various things to eat. Also there is a Chick-Fil-A, Mini Markets, Starbucks and Subway on campus which is always a plus.

    At first, I loved the food. I thought it was amazing. I ate so much and gained about five pounds in the process. Then, I noticed that the food kept repeating itself and I got tired of eating nearly the same things. However there are four different places to eat on campus and they all offer different things. On the bright side, restaurants are down the street, a Wal-mart up the street, Chipotle, and a Boston Market directly across the street if you ever want to switch it up.

    I wish there were more food options. I also wish our meal plans were able to be used off campus.

    Food is not so good when there are not a lot of choices to choose from. Eating the same thing over and over everyday does get tiring. So dining out becomes an alternative majority of the time.

    I am not in the Greek Life but from the outside it looks like a load of fun. But if interested in joining you must do your own individual research!

    This is a big deal at our school, especially since it's an HBCU. On the other hand, it's not a must to be involved.
