    I actually bring my lunch to JSU. However, there are days I forget to bring it. If this is the case, then I usually go to the TMB and buy some food from Chick-fil-A. There are other places you can eat, but I eat only Chick-fil-A. The cafeteria requires you to have like a certain type of money that you get at the beginning of the year. There is a variety of food you can get in there including pizza, salad, pasta, hamburgers, international food, etc.

    There are always burgers and pizza for the picky people, and there is an international station and a meat and vegetables station. There is also a dessert station! You can ALWAYS get ice cream in the dining hall.

    Went with the unlimited meal plan with few flex dollars. So far this has treated me well, and I will stick with this plan for as long as i am here. The Jack Hopper Dining Hall has a great big selection of food to choose from and it has yet to become old to me.

    The food court is a great place to go to enjoy a nice meal. We have a Baja Express, Chik-Fil-A, and a Smoothie station. The Cafeteria is a great place to go if you have a meal plan and offers great variety and a healthy alternative.

    The food is not really healthy but it tastes good and you can always pick the sandwiches and fruit or vegetables, but it still is not as healthy as it could be. The best place to go to get something healthy is a yogurt or smoothie place. There are many places to choose from.

    Eat healthy. Most college students have a poor diet due to time restraints. You need to study and be involved in schools activities. Nourish yourself properly, and take care of your body. You do not want to graduate and get to that new job you have worked so hard for fifty pounds over the weight you should be.

    I have yet to meet an unpleasant Greek life member. Being one myself, I have seen some of the nasty people that live up to the media stereotypes of Greek life, but JSU helps foster some of the friendliest people you'll ever meet. If you're looking for a social fraternity/sorority or a service one, you'll find a group that will become your next family if you want.

    I'm not involved in greek life but our greek organizations are very involved on campus. They have plenty of programs and events on campus for students to attend and get information in case they are interested in membership.

    I am not apart of Greek Life yet, but from what I have seen from the outside looking in, they look like they have a great time. I love the bond they share.

    Greek Life here at JSU is so awesome! I was a part of Zeta Tau Alpha for my first semester. I loved everything I got out of it. While It was not something I continued in, I still recommend going greek for anyone that is interested. You learn so much that prepares you for the real world and you get a bunch of incredibly sisters or brothers for the rest of your life. You have a ton of fun making floats for homecoming or participating in different types of pageants held by the other sororities or fraternities. Because JSU is a smaller school, the chapters are not huge and that way you can know every single one of your sisters/brothers so much easier that you would had a large university.
