  • Jun-11-2014 I am a past student here

    Over the course of the year, the quality of the food goes up and down, but there are quite a few options for lunch and dinner. Between the two dining halls, breakfast is usually the same with occasional pancakes, but the usual hashbrowns, bacon, biscuits, grits, eggs, oatmeal, muffins, and sausage. Lunch and dinner at both have an option for an oriental-type meal, pizza, made-to-order pasta dishes, burger or hot dog with fires, a homemade southern style meal, and dessert. There are additional choices at each individual dining hall. One dining hall is located right in the middle of campus and is two stories with a beautiful view of the pond. The other is right near most dorms and a short walk. The halls close before midnight, and open at 7:30 AM.

    Georgia Southern has two dining halls that serve just about everything that a student could want. They are very spacious and well designed. The staff is very helpful and hospitable. Most importantly, the food is cooked with the up most attention payed to quality and dedication.

    If you have a meal plan, Landrum and Lakeside are all you can eat. You'll probably get tired of them eventually though, so if you don't mind spending more money, there's Chikfila, Wrapsody, Market Grill, etc.

    Landrum and Lakeside are buffet style, but they get old quickly. Chik Fil A and other on campus restaurants are a terrific break from them.

    Oncampus dining is actually pretty great. Lakeside dining commons is better than Landrum dining commons. The people that work there are much nicer and the food is better, but still I enjoy both. The other restaurants on campus are also pretty good. Einsteins is a little pricey for me, so I normally go with chicfila.

    On campus dining was recently redone, and it is horrible. The dining commons are packed, smelly, and the food upsets most people's stomachs. The school spent millions of dollars renovating them for it to be only a disappointment. The corporate food places on campus are on the verge of closing because students cannot use their meal plan as they have before.

    There is a large Greek life on campus, but it is not necessary to be Greek. Greeks and non-Greeks associate with each other in a positive way.
