    There's the Christian Cafeteria and the Student Center. Never been in the cafeteria, but I've heard mixed reviews about it. Some say it's good on occasion and other say it's pretty good the entire time. The Student Center has a small convenience store then a food court, which can be quite crowded at certain times.

    Food isn't awful on campus, but you will grow tired of it, especially in the cafeteria. The dorms all have kitchens so it wouldn't be too difficult to concoct a homemade meal occasionally.

    The cafeteria is not so great. It is okay for the first couple of weeks, but as the year(s) go on and you learn what is good and what is bad in the caf, you figure out the good is mediocre and the bad can be just awful. The stir-fry line is okay. The omelet line is usually good. The panini maker usually makes a good sandwich. The salad bar is usually not so fresh. The homemade line is usually bad. Finally there is the fried line: it tastes pretty good, but your body will hate you for it.

    I always heard about people hating the caf and getting bored with the student center, but I never had a problem with it.

    The food and dinning on campus inst the best unless you have a meal plan where you can eat in the student center which has a variety of food places to go . They also have a c store which a mini grocery store which comes in handy at times . The only downside is that they are a bit expensive.

    Student center contains: Quizno's Sub Shop, Chick-fil-a, Mooya Burgers, Pizza Hut, and Asian cuisine (fried rice, sushi, etc.) All food here is excellent. Bear Den Sub shop: Hidden shop on a lower level of an academic building. Build your own sandwiches with fresher ingredients than Quizno's, baked potatoes and frito chili pie as well as breakfast foods All excellent. Caf: Salad bar never disappoints. Always have pizza and burgers available. Vegetarian choice is usually good. However, many of the main and side dishes can be a bit bland. Somewhat decent.

    There are many different food opportunities on campus. There is Christian Cafeteria, which alone offers the main entree as well as a selection of a deli, stir fry, hamburgers, and salad bar. There is also the Food Court in the Student Center which holds Quiznos (my favorite), Chic-Fil-A, Mooyas, Pizza Hut and an asian selection on food. There are also C-Stores in two separate locations where you can buy some groceries.

    Pretty soon, student center and cafe food get old. Check out the downtown area for great food choices

    Greek life is not an end-all at UCA. It is fantastic if you are involved, but if you are not, you don't feel like you are missing out. Like in most schools, there are sororities/fraternities who like each other and sororities/fraternities who don't like each other. There is not a lot of out-right hostility toward each other, but greek unity is slim.

    From NPHCs to Christian fraternities like Brothers Under Christ (BYX). UCA has no shortage of Greek life. We are even in the process of building a Greek Village to house all the fraternities and sororities!

    There are numerous sororities and fraternities throughout campus. The Greeks have anti- hazing policies, and they have events on campus made for your enjoyment. Lastly, from living on campus, I noticed how well the Greeks respect others and themselves.

    Greek life is always getting better here at UCA. we are slowly becoming a Greek community, not just a bunch of greek organizations. I can't wait to come back 10 years from now to see where it's at.
