    The food is OK and that is looking at it from a good perspective. It is a hit or miss, but the grill master is great since they cook fresh burgers and such. However, it gets old.

    At Florida Southern, the food has its good and bad moments. You have selections from the cafe , underage, and grill. When eating at Florida Southern, if the food is fresh, it will taste pretty good, but for the most part, many people with cars get there food elsewhere.

    There will be changes made in dining in the next year or so. Currently, they are a few places on campus to eat with a variety of choices. The food is mediocre. I found that I enjoyed it my first year, but after my second and third year I was done!

    There are many food opportunities at the school. Wynee's Bistro, or better known to the students as the Cafe, is an all you can eat buffet. Then there's the Terrance Cafe, what we call the Under-cafe, which provides simple meals for students. There are also the Grill Master located on campus, one by the freshman dorms and the other by the library. Each of these places provide good quality meals and the best part is they don't cost a thing for students. The school uses meal points.

    Greek life is mostly awesome, but if you aren't in greek life you might feel left out. Sometimes it completely overtakes the school since one out of every three people are involved in greek life.

    Though I do not belong go a sorority/fraternity of my own, I have seen what these groups do and I can say that they are sisterhood/brotherhood like no other. They are there for their brother's and sisters no matter what. One day I wish to join one of these amazing groups and have a family away from home.

    Most of the people who are not in an athletic team have greek affiliation. I am a member of Alpha Delta Pi and can only advise new freshman to look into rushing. The school does a great job with it.
