    The food at Philander Smith College is horrible at best. Most students eat out alot. Bring a hefty wallet you will need it.

    The food is alright. We have many choices off campus though and we are under construction so our cafe is where we dine in. They work hard to provide us with fresh products and i'm appreciated!

    The food served at the cafeteria is not always the best. But it can be good at times. The dessert is great. But if you choose not to eat, there are convenient restaurants close to campus.

    The food is great, and they feed us 3 times a day, which is all I need. And it is impossible for any freshman to gain the first 15 because we are given healthy food like pineapples and grapes and such during meals.

    The food here is up and down. Some days its wonderful some days its horrible. You don't get to choose a certain meal plan so you basically waste money if you don't eat.

    I have never been interested in the Greek organizations on campus. Prospective students who are will have many too choose from and will enjoy the party atmosphere. Strolling at parties and school functions is huge at Philander Smith College.

    The Greeks are very heart warming individuals, they are all nice and i enjoy watching them at parties; strolling and calling out there signs. They represent there organization well and they have respect for each other.

    Greek life from what I have seen so far seems to be pretty fun. But as a freshman your not eligible to pledge until your a sophomore.

    Seems pretty family oriented. All organizations work together, they don't fight, and the people are great to hang around with.

    Again, I am a member of Delta Sigma Theta and we part take in numerous activities around the campus. We are the best of the best and when it comes to handling business we ALWAYS get the job done. Greek life is excellent. We host an abundance of educational seminars, promote healthy lifestyles, and promote academic excellence in whatever we do.

    Greek Life is the only thing exciting on campus, but at a point in time we all get tired of seeing them.
