    The food in The Bears Den is just like any other cafeteria. They always have a vegetarian choice, which I thought was nice.

    The food in the den can sometimes get boring, for they tend to have a lot of the same things often. But the taste and service are good!

    I wish I could have put 3 1/2 stars for this. I don't think the food is bad, but it isn't fine dining either. It gets old after awhile, but all in all it could be worse. The reason I cannot put 4 stars is becuase of the accessiblity of the Bear's Den. The hours can be very inconvient for students with late classes or classes all afternoon. Although there is a to-go selection a lot of the times those sandwiches are days old and just left-overs from the main course a couple of days ago.

    It depends on the meal. They offer a variety in buffet style. The school has designated meal times and those are the best times to go and eat, but they have certain things that are offered all day. Additionally, the school offers to-go meals which you can get and take back to your room to eat in there or later on.

    SSU has a cafeteria, and the full meal plan comes to 19 meals a week (breakfast lunch and dinner on weekdays and brunch and dinner on the weekends). The cafeteria has a decent variety of food and good staff. Every day pizza, burgers, wraps/subs, and a salad bar are available, while other entrees, soups, and desserts change daily. The eating area is large and never gets overcrowded. If you are in a hurry, you can use one meal to get a to-go bag, which included a drink, entree, and two sides or a side and dessert. There's also Jazzman's Cafe, where students can buy coffee and treats.

    There are two sororities and a fraternity on campus, though a new fraternity chapter may be coming to SSU soon. I don't have much knowledge beyond that.

    There are two sororities and two fraternities right now. We are working on getting another fraternity. The fraternity that we are working on getting is going to be a clean one. It is were they will not drink or do anything bad. You have to pay dues to be in the Greek Life. Some the people that I know that is in it like it. To be in it is easy, it is not like what you see on TV. You do not get messed with. You are welcomed in with arms opened, and you have fun with your brothers or sisters.
