    The cafeteria is ok, but there is a Chick Fil-A and a Starbucks on campus.

    The dining hall is horrible. Buy your own groceries, even though if you live on campus, you're required to purchase a food voucher. There is a Chick-fil-a as well as a Starbucks on campus, though!

    The cafeteria (otherwise known as Caddo) is pretty disgusting. I haven't heard of one student who hasn't gotten sick from the food at least once. The Caddo does have a variety of different foods to try from salad bar to cereal and several other comfort food selections.

    Food is tolerable. Could be better but it's a great dining hall because it's new and the variety keeps you from running into everyone at once.

    Caddo cafeteria has very recently been renovated and is very modern and beautiful. The food is relatively tasty for cafeteria concoctions, and the staff is friendly and helpful. In addition, there is a wonderful salad bar for those who are more health-conscious.

    6 national sororities Alpha Kappa Alpha Alpha Sigma Alpha Alpha Sigma Tau (my favorite) Alpha Xi Delta Delta Sigma Theta Zeta Phi Beta 7 national fraternities Alpha Phi Alpha Kappa Alpha Psi Kappa Sigma Omega Psi Phi Phi Beta Sigma Phi Lambda Chi (my favorite) Sigma Phi Epsilon Leadership opportunities. Professional networking. Enhanced academic support. Loads of social activities and events. And a sense of belonging to a brotherhood or sisterhood that lasts a lifetime.

    I'm not in a sorority, but I've been to all the activities that they provide. It seems to be very exciting and fun experience.
