    At Wingate, there are many dining choices to choose from. The cafeteria offers many different selections such as grilled food, a salad bar, pasta, pizzas, homemade dishes, a fruit bar, and a good selection of desserts if so desire.

    There are four different places to eat right now on campus and there is also a cafe scheduled to be built in the next year. The cafeteria has great food but it can sometimes be repetitive and it feels like the same meals are being served a little two often. We also have the Klondike which is more of a fast food place to eat and it goes along with the students meal plan which I love. We have Einsteins and Subway as well on campus which you can use bulldog bucks for but are not permitted to use meal swipes. Lastly, there is the Lakeside Cafe being built within the next year made to be something like a TGI Friday's. There will be one meal a week that students can use the meal swipe for which is great.

    There is a cafeteria, a poolside grill, an Einstein Bagels, and a Subway all on campus. The cafeteria and poolside grill take meal swipes while the Einstein's and Subway take meal plan points. The quality of food in the cafeteria varies, but it is never completely gross. There are many different food options on any one day in the cafeteria. The quality of food in the poolside grill is always predictable and very good. The Einstein's Bagels is a little pricy, but the food there is amazing. Meal plan options are basic for freshmen and sophomores, but there are more options for juniors and seniors. Commuters are given a block meal plan.

    The cafeteria is being renovated for the fall of 2013 so the facilities will be much nicer! The food has been improving since I've been here and is showing signs of improving in the future! We have the cafeteria, the Klondike Poolside, we are getting an Einstein's Bagels in the fall, and we're also getting a new dining option in the Spring of 2014 that is supposed to be kind of like a ruby tuesday.

    Greek life is a huge part of Wingate's campus. Greek life is involved in so much on campus. I've heard it's a great experience to be involved in a sorority or fraternity. They hold multiple fundraisers and events that anyone can participate in!

    There are approximately five Greek organizations on campus. Each organization wants students to join and become a member. The organizations are very prominent on campus.

    I'm not involved in greek life, but I know a lot of people who are and they really enjoy it. I think our greeks are some of the nicest greeks ever. They sororities, at least, are not your typical snotty, rude, mean, brats. For the most part, they are all really nice, sweet girls.

    KA has 7 or 8 members. Phi Beta Sigma has 4 members. Pi Kap's have 12 members. Fraternities are a joke, the sororities have good numbers but they do not get along with one another and they are usually stuck up.
