    There are lots of places to go eat around campus but mainly in the Graham center. They are constantly adding more and more places to eat, currently they are building a Panda Express and a Taco Bell on campus. adding these franchises to the present collection of Burger King, Pollo Tropical, Cafe Bustelo, Alamazar, Chili's, Chic-fil-a, Moe's, Dunkin Donuts, And several other franchise restaurants. there is also a cafeteria place called Fresh Foods Company, this place is a buffet and at the beginning of the semester the food here is always good, and it has many options for food, salads, sandwiches, pizza, and a variety of other hot foods. There are currently 2 Starbucks on campus and a new one is being built within a new building scheduled to be completed later in 2014. There is a salad place called Salad Creations also, and they make really delicious salads but they're kinda pricey so normally I just stick to Chic-Fil-A.

    There are so many options to choose from. Just about every main building has little fast food places, plus there is an actual Chili's restaurant on campus. There is a Starbucks in the library and a Dunkin Donuts on the other side of the school in the bottom of a parking garage. The only downside to these places is that they aren't open late.

    The Greek life is very active, so active that I had to drop recruitment because I was still getting into the swing of college and being in a sorority would have taken a lot of time out of my studying because they are really active.
