    There could be more selection when it comes down to food. I was thinking that since this was a HBC that the food would be good; its not. Thank God for pizza hut and chic-fil-a.

    Food & dinning isn't always great. It's like cafeteria food . But when your hungry & on a budget , those free meals don't sound to bad. Some days there will be selections that meet your liking but other days they will not.

    Greek life is fascinating . Whenever the Greek cone out & step in the courtyard , the whole student body is there to watch. This is when everyone gets HYPE! Cheering & screaming for the ones we know showing off their talent & even laughing amounts each other at the jokes that the geek chant out.

    Greek life at TSU is amazing. All divine 9 greeks are on the yard, and have been growing each year. There are also other non-divine 9 greeks at Tennessee State as well. All greeks are approachable, and do not tend to be involved with drama.

    Keep your head on the swivel when it comes to events involving a sorority/fraternity because it something you don't want to miss! During Homecoming, it is a chance to see some of the most interesting and fun step shows ever. If you are going to miss out on most things during the semester, don't miss out on this!

    Greek Life is a amazing you will mostly always see something going on around campus that involves them. As a Freshman you can look at the sororities that catch your eye. After looking your first year you can begin to pledge.

    The Greeks...will surprise you. Whether or not you join is no pressure at all but expect to see them chanting, stepping, and dancing! They show pride and represent their chapter and all of them put on a memorable show! They love their brothers and sisters, and are always friendly and helpful.
