  • Dorm life at Francis Marion is not that bad. There are always something going on so that you do not have to stay in your room all of the time…

  • The dorms are really nice. I've visited other colleges, and I am proud to say that I reside on Francis Marion Campus as opposed to other campuses.…

    The food is decent hear its not home cooking but its alright. They frequently try and change the menu to your liking. there is a salad bar, sandwich bar, pizza, and burger stations that will be there everyday. We have what is call fried chicken Wednesday which is the best day ever. This is the closest thing you get to a home cooked meal every week.

    There are only two places to eat on campus. They both have crazy hours, especially on the weekends and there is nothing within walking distance besides two as stations. There is a bus system but it ends about 5 on weekdays and doesn't run on weekends.

    The food is basically like high school. However, they have a pizza, deli, international food, and burger section to choose from. Also, they have a salad bar. If you have any allergies with foods, let the office in the cafeteria, Dining Hall Services, know. They will make sure that you will have something to eat if you can't eat nothing that they cooked. Also, FMU has a food place called The Grill. It has good food and it costs money. It's reasonable so you do not have to go off campus. I go there more than the Dining Hall.

    I've heard the food isn't that great, but there are plenty of off-campus locations that aren't too far from the school. The Grille was okay--pretty much fast food.

    The dining hall has a lot of monotony, but it's good food usually. It's nothing to write home about yet it's food. The Grille is the place to go if you have money to spend and want something really good. The only bummer is that the Grille isn't included in the meal plan.

    I've eaten at the café a couple of times and may I say I'm satisfied. The best day is always Wednesday, because that's what I call soul food Wednesday. They really try their hardest to make it feel like you back at home eating your mom's cooking!

    I cannot personally speak about the foods on campus, but I have heard it is ten times better that high school cafeteria foods.

    I'm not a part or interested in a sorority. My advice would be not to join just because of how lively they seem or that a family member was this or that. This is a brotherhood and sisterhood. This is a lifetime commitment, not something you just drop whenever. Be sure to choose whichever greek organization based on that chapters' character. Also remember, 'They choose you, not you choose them.'

    There are a few fraternities and sororities here. They're not very large- scale but they have fun and do some great things around campus.

    I am not very sure about Greek Life on campus. There are no special housing or buildings for members. There are sororities and fraternities.

    Not really big on the Greek Life. Do not get me wrong they are many organizations on campus, but you rarely hear or see them out showing off.
