  • Most of the dorms on campus aren't that bad, but it's not the best. If you're a girl, stay away from Watson Hall which is the all girls dorm. …

    The food in the dining halls is not exactly five star material, but as a freshman, you have to pay for it, so you should eat it. The food available at the Community Center is delicious, but it is kind of expensive for a college budget. Also, I am a vegetarian, and there are not a lot of options anywhere on campus.

    The options are endless and the campus dining offers a wide variety of foods. There are numerous off campus dining facilities that students can explore but definitely options for your taste buds and budget

    The University of West Georgia offer many different options when it comes to food. You can eat at the dining halls for traditional breakfast, lunch, and dinner meals. You can also visit the many restaurants that are around the campus, such as subway, chick-fil-a, mcdonalds, and more. The food is very healthy and there is usually always something new being served!

    Food is available 24/7 at the new dinning hall in East Commons. There is a Food Court at the UCC that offers anything from Burgers to Sushi.

    The Z6 has the safest food, and the drink variety is nice, but its not as big as East commons, The food there is generally more static and fried chicken Wednesdays is pretty nice. East commons' is good for the mongolian grill and the bigger options, but often times they fall short in terms of qualities. There's Chick-fil-a which is always good, a subways above, Starbucks (busy in the mornings and during finals), Eisenstein Bagels, which is pretty good , and a couple other options.

    This last year, UWG has completed another dining hall (East Commons) for a commons on both sides of campus, along with various restraurants in the middle (food court like includes Chinese, Burgers, Mexican, etc). I've tasted both dining halls - the food is great without having to pay extra for the campus restraurants.

    The campus has a variety of options for its students to choose from. They have Subway, Chick Fila, a pizza place, a sushi place, two dining halls and much, much more!

    The food and dining from what students have told me is very nice. I personally love sushi so I was happy to hear that they served it!

    Waste of money. Unless its taco salad, or fried chicken, I hate eating at our East Commons and Z6. Everything else on campus, chick-fil-a, starbucks, sushi express, that burger place, are all delicious, but each meal averages at about $8 a meal. Now, as a freshman, you have to get a meal plan here. Sorry, but your parents need to know that you are being fed, even if the food is not edible. Sophomore year, you'll move off campus and never have to go there again. It's kind of like right of passage, in a way.

    The greek life's fun for those who are in it, some organizations are pretty cool and try and reach out, others are pretty close knit, so its kind of hard to interact with some. That being said, there are some great people within their organizations, just depends on how well you get along with them.

    Greek Life is amazing - fourteen sororities and thirteen fraternities - six of them being apart of the National Pan-Hellenic. All of them have a minimum requirement for GPA and hold various events throughout the year - both social events and volunteer work.

    Our Greek Life plays a big role here on campus. Personally, I would recommend waiting until your sophomore year, or at least rush Spring during your freshman year. I am so glad I waited to rush because I got to find out more about the sororities here on campus over the past two semesters; things you can't learn in a few days. Our Greek Life is the biggest social network this campus has to offer. It's either rush or be a GDI, Gosh Darn* Independent. I had this idea of what Greek life was prior coming to college, but West Ga Greek Life definitely changed that out look. Can't wait to rush fall. Go wolves!

    Greek life is very fun and exciting. However, if you feel the need to want to withdraw from your sorority, many are very hateful and rude about you wanting to quit. Some girls will be very crude to you after quiting.

    There is a greek village where all the greek fraternity and sorority houses are located. The Greeks are well respected around campus and stick together.
