    The cafe has great hours for students, and a variety of healthy choices. The campus also has a coffee shop in Elva Jones Computer Science Building , a bagel shop in Hill Hall, Popeyes, Subway, a Pizza place, a Burger Joint, and three small stores ALL located on campus.

    When it comes to the food, you have to remember that it's not a home-cooked meal... its cafe food.. The food is decent, personally I believe that the best meal is breakfast. The most popular dining day is Wednesday.. also known as Fried Chicken Wednesdays. we also have Fish Fridays.

    The cafe is improving but still not the best. I recommend on your meal plan that you select more money. Restaurants include subway, Popeyes, and a burger studio.

    The cafe food is disgusting. If choosing to go here, purchase a meal plan with the biggest declining balance possible so that you can eat from the student center.

    Usual. Sometimes runs out of utensils, plates, and/or cups (dishwasher machine may shut down) and forced to use plastic.

    The food options here are great. The cafe isn't bad at all, towards the end of the semester they get lazy but its been decent so far especially breakfast. We also have a Popeyes on campus and that's a plus.

    Greek life is great with the exception of one sorority from the Divine 9 being off the yard (Delta Sigma Theta). They always do events and connect with the students.

    Greek Life boasts 8 of 9 Divine 9 organizations but a slew of CIGO organizations as well. As a small campus we are often more unified than larger campuses. We also have many Greek members who are in key positions within the school that host programs beneficial to the campus.
