    The food is bland. There is little to no variety and sometimes the meals are just strange. One night they served refried beans and eggs... that was it.

    Missouri Western has it's own dining services which caters all of the events on campus, including the cafeteria. The cafateria has tons of options and is all-you-can-eat. Missouri Western also has the food court in the union which changes restaurants on a bi-year basis, and has an Einstein Bros. Bagels, two coffee shops, and a deli on campus.

    Not only does MWSU have a regular cafeteria, there are several small restaurants on campus. Also St. Joseph has a myriad of restaurants all nearby.

    Since I have not been to the campus I can not give you a real review of the campus dining. I just hope to God that it is digestible.

    MWSU is all about good food to eat. Visit the cafeteria it's an all-you-can-eat buffet! You'll find everything pizza, pasta, even Mongolian Barbeque! The food doesn't stop there. You don't have to eat there. You can go to the burger shop, subway, Einsteins bagels, we even have our own little convenience store that has college student hours. Open until 3a.m!!

    I've only eaten the food from the cafeteria area once but I can say it was good, but it seemed a lot like high school food to me. Just you have a wider variety of food.

    Greeks are everywhere but the actual greek life is shotty. There are no actual houses just designated dorms for the specified greeks and the numbers are small. They are involved or in charge of EVERYTHING though, the greeks basically run all events and they do a pretty good job.

    Sororities on campus are rude. I've watched girls cheat on tests and walk out of the class in the middle of lecture. When the teacher asked where they were going they rudely said, Chipotle, like it was acceptable to get up and disrupt class.

    The Greek life at MWSU is something to see. All of the Greeks are really nice even if you're not involved directly, you still get invited to things. If you are even slightly interested, RUSH! It's not something you wanna pass up.

    I am not apart of Greek Life but I am involved in other things on campus such as Western Activities Council and a new organization on campus that I started myself: Colleges Against Cancer.

    Greek life is great! If you are looking for a social sorority or fraternity, or a business, sorority or fraternity, then you came to the right campus! If you are interested in an all black sorority/fraternity then we have that too!
