    The food at the MAX is pretty standard. Some days are better than others, but most of the time I find something that I like. They recently installed a salad bar, which is an awesome healthy choice and is always consistently good!

    GCSU just got a new dinning hall a couple of years ago and it is wonderful. It is a buffet style dinning hall that has a wide variety of food.

    If you find yourself getting hungry head on over to the Max! Or if you prefer, use your school i.d. at Chick-fil-a, Zaxby's, Subway, and many more other tasty places. The Max is always serving up something whether it's for a Monday lunch or a Sunday brunch.

    If you are on a limited meal plan, use your swipes wisely. Then can run out early if you do not plan correctly. If you are living off campus, it will probably be beneficial not to get a meal plan unless you are planning to be on campus all the time during the day. Many restaurants are in walking distance downtown, but if you are looking to treat yourself or your family to something special bigger, more commercial restaurants are on the main strip on Highway 441.

    The Max, the student dining hall, does have good food, but it gets very tiring eating the same thing time after time. There is also a Chic-fil-a, Subway, World of Wings and other places on campus as well.

    The MAX offers many different types of food daily, but can become rather boring. Luckily, there are a few different on campus restuarants to mix things up.

    I personally did not go greek, but I have roommates who did and they absolutely love their sorority. I do not feel as though I am being left out of any fun activities having not done one though. I think this school is small enough that you could be happy going either way.

    Greek life here is absolutely fantastic! There is a sorority/ fraternity for every type of student from the athletic one to the book smart one.

    The Greeks usually hold a step show in the Fall. Greek life is an awesome way to get plugged in and better acquaint yourself with the campus. Students are not Greek because of peer pressure, most people love it and it helps them mature and get organized. I did not pledge but for my friends who did, it made a huge difference in how they matured over the course of being at Georgia College. Greek life on campus is diverse, there is a sorority or fraternity for everyone who is interested. The best thing to do is ask if you want to learn more about a particular sorority or fraternity.

    Huge Greek life here. At least half the students here are in a sorority or fraternity. Most of the homes surrounding the campus are occupied by them, and they tend to have lots of parties apparently.

    Greek life isn't a huge part of our school. There are a lot of people in it, but people don't care if you are or are not. We are a very accepting group of people.
