    Too expensive, barely healthy and not that much food to choose from. Only one place to get food, hours are a little ridiculous and that food isn't that good half the time either. They have the same options every day, only one station changes throughout the day and if you don't want whats at that station, you're screwed because its the same stupid food every day to eat.

    I have lunch 3 times per week on campus. Meals are reasonable and there is a better than average variety.

    Stacks (the campus cafeteria) is amazing, I live for their breakfast sandwiches. Also, Biscotti's serves Starbucks drinks, even specialty ones and you can pay with your meal plan! How awesome is that?

    I liked the food on campus. I thought some things were a little more expensive then they needed to be but not outrageously high. The dining room wasn't huge but at typical eating times it was packed. Once the weather became nice they had tables outside for us to eat at, which was nice.

    It's so easy to gain weight with the food varieties available you have to have self control! The chicken tenders and fries are weakening! I must add it is extremely expensive if you do not have a meal-plan.

    I believe that there are two sororities and about four fraternities on campus.

    Kappas is the first fraternity to be at that campus. In the Fall of 2011, the Sigmas created a chapter there and has already stirred up some good campus events. Then, in the Spring of 2012 the Zetas started a chapter and has really brought some delight to the campus.

    there are a few sororities and fraternities but they are not very widely known. it seems only people who are in it or know those who are, know about the fraternities and sororities present.
