    Dining services will accommodate you with anything you may need such as allergies or diet restrictions. Subway is coming in the Fall of 2014. We have Starbucks and Einstein Bagel plus Papa Johns and other eating place. You will never go hungry. There is also a convenience store called the C-Store. With later hours and great food SVSU is a great place. There is also the Ryder Gym center free for students if you are worried about the Freshman 15.

    There are several categories and places to eat on campus. It is a little expensive but if you have a meal plan it isn't bad. Food is really good and fresh!

    The food and dining is pretty standard. We have a cafeteria as well as a food court and Einstein's bagels. The cafeteria is all you can eat and is usually very good with an wide selection or is limited to its selection--such as just hamburgers and pizza, thus for the 3 out of 5 stars.

    There are 9 sororities and fraternities on campus. There is not Greek housing, but they are still awesome. I joined Greek life this semester and it was the best decision I have made at SVSU.
