  • Know yourself before you pick a dorm. I personally love community style but not everyone can handle it. There are issues sometimes but talking with your RA usually settles things…

    The food is pretty good, because the campus is so big, you may get used to the food that is closer to your dorm. Don't be afraid to take the shuttle somewhere and switch it up a bit.

    The food is good. I am kind of a health food fan. And not so much of that. So I grocery shop and make most of my own

    It's hit or miss in the cafeteria. Sometimes it's great, sometimes not so much. The other places on campus are pretty good though.

    The food is decent, you get tired of it after-while. I eat a lot of Subway, Chick-Fil-A, Towers, and Rowdy's on the campus. Sono is pretty good, and I love Dippin Dots of course, because I love ice cream!!!

    SEMO offers cultural food, as well as your standard pepperoni pizza. The food is great and is always prepared timely. Vegetarians are offered several choices and the Starbucks is phenomenal!

    At Southeast Missouri State University students who live on and off campus favor on campus dining. The cafe options range from fast food chains to the on campus market and bistro.

    I am not sure of the number of Greek life frats or sororities we have, but I think 85% of the people I met are Greek. SEMO and Greek Life are one.

    I am sorry, I dont know much about it. I believe there are some service fraternities which I think would be good. worth checking out. I believe Honors program is more beneficial.

    Hmm, don't know too much about it, but to me the greeks are typically separated by race. All the Deltas are black, most of Delta Chi is white, expect for like one black guy in there, there was another but he left the campus.

    Greek life is a big part of Southeast. If you have never though about joining a fraternity i would say this, you never know unless you try. The greeks love having fun and sharing the almost sibling rivalry kind of relationships. There are lots of school related activities and not school related ones to take part in.

    Like I said above, our Greek life is simply amazing. They always seem to have a lot of fun and I can honestly say that each chapter is well put together.

    I do not know much about greek life, for I am rushing in the fall, but most of the greeks are really great. The Pikes, Pi Kappa Alphas have a rep for drugging girls at parties and raping them or just raping them. Most of those guys are no longer in the Fraternity, but there is not guarantee that they didn't pass down the ways to the newer brothers. Any girl who hangs out with them needs to be careful when they do and make sure they always watch their drink.

    I do not physically attend this college but instead take courses through my high school for dual credit.

    Seems to be a way to become involved and make life time connections with people you barely knew a couple months ago but end up being best of friends. Standards and requirements to become members are strict but manageable.

    Greek life is pretty average here. If you aren't a part of one its no big deal, no one will treat you any different. But, there are a variety of options when it comes to different Greek Life organizations, you just have to find the one that's right for you. Don't join if you really aren't interested, because Greek Life can be time consuming and expensive.
