    The food in the cafe is healthy and nutricional. However if your the type of person that like to cheat on your diet you can come too. The student cafe has a burger grill, sandwich/wrap deli, and pizza buffet.

    First off, they have a great Cafeteria. They always have food. Plus, the cafeteria ladies are super sweet. :) They have other places you can eat like the Colonels Retreat. That place seriously has the best chicken fingers. The only downfall is that your food may take awhile to get to you.

    Nicholls State University's cafeteria offers a variety of different food to choose from. From themed cuisine to pizza and burgers, there is something for everyone. The cafeteria also offers a salad bar and a sandwich line for the health conscious athlete, so that there is something for everyone to munch on. The union also offers a variety of places to eat, including a salad buffet, sandwich shop, pizza place, and a burger joint. There is so much to choose from, you literally can eat something different each day of the week, not to mention the breakfast is delectable.

    I got sick many times due to the fact they reheat their food more than once and serve it multiple times until it is gone

    The food in the cafeteria is always fresh. The food in the union snack bar is fresh as well. They have plenty of vending machines on the campus as well. Jazzmans had a great selection of food and coffee.

    There is a cafeteria, union with a restaurant and a few quick eat booths and small supermarket on campus. I prefer bringing my own lunch because the options are not always the healthiest and very limited. I would seek living in an apartment and heading to the nearest grocery store, Rouse, and cooking my own meals.

    Nicholls not only offers cafeteria food, but a union full of other choices. Some of those choices would be a salad bar, sandwich shop(kind of like Subway), pizza place, Jazz-mans(coffee shop) and even Colonel Retreat(offer wings, burgers, and beer). Prices are a downside, all on campus residents have to buy a meal plan. If you stay in the dorms you can end up spending over 1400 on a meal plan alone. If you live in the apartments though you have an option of $500 declining balance.

    The cafeteria definitely is not the best. Eating the same food everyday repetitively isn't good for the body nor do I like it.

    Food on campus is always good, sometimes the cafeteria doesn't serve the greatest food but the colonel's retreat and jazzmans cafe is always there the save the day.

    They have three sororities and so fraternities. They are all pretty fantastic and really want to make a difference for their philanthropies.

    Although I do not participate, Nicholls has Greek Life for guys and girls of all kinds. Delta Zeta, SigmaSigmaSigma, and Phi Mu are a few girl options, while TKE, KA, and Sigma are some options for boys.

    Greek life looks very fun. I attended a Greek competition this year and it was awesome to see everybody joining together to perform. My roommate is in a Sorority and she always tells us about the fun organizations they provide for the community.

    I never had a chance to check out the Greek Life, but I've heard from others that it has changed their life. Things they wouldn't have did on a normal basis they did because of Greek Life. An by doing so, it made their college experience 10x better!

    There are a good number of Sororities and Fraternities here. They are very active. There are no Greek housing.
