    Not a lot of variety as far as on-campus options go. There are only two places actually at SSU to eat: the Bear's Den (the campus cafeteria) and Jazzman's Cafe. But you still have options if you walk or drive somewhere off-campus.

    The food is okay at the beginning of the year, but... that's about it. Don't expect to go to the cafeteria and leave feeling full or satisfied. If I had to describe the food at our cafeteria, the Bears' Den, I wouldn't say it's good or bad; it's edible. Most of the employees are very rude as well.

    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.

    I think we have two sororities and two fraternities, however, I'm not a part of any of them so I can't say much about them. I will, however, note that when it's Greek Week, you'll know. The people a part of those groups are down your throat in order to get you to join.

    DPhiE is the sorority I belong to and I love it! Become Greek has been the best decision I have made this year! I love all my sisters and love the opportunities Greek life offers students to become involved! I highly recommend others to rush!

    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.
