    The infestation of flies everywhere in the cafeteria or dining hall and all over the food was likely against regulation. It makes people worry about getting sick.

    There are different types of dining options on campus. We have the Cafe. (main dining area) It has a salad bar, a saute area, home style line, line for pizza and different common foods, and a area to make your own sandwiches and wraps. There is The Station if you need to grab something quick and The Market with more home-style options for cooking. We also have a brand new Starbucks on campus which is very popular. If you want to grab something else, there are plenty of other options right off campus.

    When it comes down to dining in on campus you can choose from 3 places on campus and one place off campus. The first of the on campus dining is the cafeteria, many students go here and they offer buffet style eating, next would be The Station which is located in The H&SS building, which seems like a typical store. Lastly for on campus dining is The Market, which looks like a stop and shop and is located right across from the police station on campus. All the food on campus is really good. Our school partners with Domino's Pizza so if you ever want to eat there you can with the use of your declining balance with accompanies most meal plans.

    Be very careful...People have a tendency to be highly nasty here as well. The cafeteria itself is clean, but I have consumed food that was contaminated with illnesses. If you ask some of the people who have been attending this institution for awhile, you will find someone who has had the same problem. Strep throat and the flu has known to run rampant on campus and you will pick it up easier in the dining hall...those who work with food have spread it that way. Sometimes it's better to just cook your own food in your room. The food has gotten healthier regardless of the fact that the workers infect it from time to time. It also doesn't taste bad on some days it's actually good.

    The food at USC Aiken is great. Their are many options in the actual cafe as well a little cafe we call the station in another building. The station is more subs and snacks. They also serve a great variety for breakfast. At the cafe the hours all day they offer many options. They have lines that change as well as some lines that stay the same. My favorite part about the cafe is that they like for students to try new things. They especially enjoy doing themes and the greatest part is that its all you can eat!

    Everything is so pricey. don't eat in the cafeteria, go off campus. you'll save some money. Unfortunately if you stay on campus they make you buy a meal plan.

    USC Aiken Greek Life is a thriving community of men and woman that work very well together. The university offers different counsels of Greek Life. Each chapter at USC Aiken is on the smaller side in numbers which makes it a very unique experience from larger chapters at larger schools.

    USCA is big on Greek life even though there is not on campus Greek housing. There are several options to choose from and the sororities and fraternities are always hosting events on and off campus.

    I'm not involved in sororities, but the ones at USCA do not participate in hazing rituals. Once again, the focus is on brotherhood/sisterhood--it's a very welcoming environment.

    Greek Life at USCA is good. I wish they would do a little bit more, but overall I enjoy it. I am not apart of Greek Life yet because I'm not sure what I want to be apart of, but when I do- I know I will enjoy it.
