    I wish there were a few more places on campus for dining, we have one general dining hall that includes a few fast food and popular places but I wish we had a couple more places to eat at! Besides that, its great!

    The food is good, they give a lot of different options. If you want something healthy, vegetarian then there are a lot of options for you. If you want something sweet then there are also options, plus they have an awesome gym for you to work it off :).

    There are so many restaurants around campus! Students will definitely never even have a chance to starve. It's good the gym is part of the campus.

    One thing about on campus housing that I will have to complain about is the dining hall. the beginning of the year the food will be great but as the year progresses the food they serve won't be as good.

    GSU only offers an all you can eat meal plan. This is good because both dining halls have exceptional food and varied choices. If you don't have the meal plan you are still in the heart of downtown which gives you access to various eateries and grocery stores.

  • May-23-2014 I am researching this school and have visited the campus

    I've seen the dining area and I must admit that it's superb. They have a cafe known as the Centennial Cafe that offers coffees, both hot and cold, sodas and fruits. They have pizzas, Chik-Fil-A, sub sandwich restaurants and smoothies. The food is very diverse, not in an international sense, but it's not one main course for everyone to eat, like high school lunches.

    Being downtown, there are lots of food options. In Walking distance, you can go to Peachtree Center Mall food court, or the dining halls, or the food places in the University's student Center. With car access, not too far of a drive, like 5 minutes, on Ponce de Leon, you have zaxbys, chipotle, popeyes, taco bell, ihop, and more! Also there's the underground food court as well. The Dining Halls at Piedmont North and Patton Hall have decent food, but at like any college you go to...you willget tired of it. Luckily, starting Fall 2014 Patton's dining hal will be 24 hours, so if you buy a meal plan, this is very convenient for you.

    The world is literally your oyster. GSU is located in the center of downtown, so you are not obligated or subjected solely to on-campus dining which is actually satisfactory.

    The food here is ok. It is a diverse school, so you would not expect to see necessarily all of the foods you see cooked at your home. But hey, try new things. They cook food for everyone with different cultures.

    Greek life is very much present here but it's not overbearing. Every Tuesdays and Thursdays select fraternities and sororities step and/or stroll in the courtyard on campus.

    Greek Life isn't as prevalent on this campus as on a traditional campus nonetheless, they are still very involved. Our greek row is actually in the growing process so if you wanted to become a part of the building process as a founder this is the perfect opportunity.

    Greek life is at GSU if you want to join, however, the majority of students are not in sororities or fraternities so do not feel like you have to do it. If you want to, that's great, and if you don't, that's great too.

    There are a bunch of different Greeks. You will typically know one when you see one by the way they're dressed.

    Not big on Greek life but it is there if you want to join. But if that's what you're really looking for, you should probably look at another school.

    Greek life is everywhere on campus. Ensure you have your studies together before applying because you will need to devote a lot of time to the organization of your choice. The greek life is alive on GSU and they have a close bond that is seen all around campus.
