    The food isn't always good, but sometimes there are good food choices. You are always able to get pizza, hamburgers, or go to the salad bar. There are also vegetarian food items available.

    Food provided by the cafeteria can be variable. On some days the food is absolutely amazing but on other days it is not so great. On the other hand there is most always a variety of choices for you to choose from. So if one thing does not taste so good, you can try your luck with something else. Outside of the school, there are several fast food restaurants that are within walking distance of the school campus. There are also many restaurants around the city of New Orleans. They are not walking distance but can be perfect to get a taste of New Orleans culture.

    Has a nice cafeteria buffet-serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Dinner's specials sometimes are baked chicken or fried catfish. ($7 for buffet) Also has a cafe that sells typical cafe foods and drinks,such as salads, tuna sandwiches, fruit cups, coffee, but also sells po-boys. During lunch, you can order a po-boy, and they'll make it fresh and ready in a few minutes!

    There is a dining hall available in the University Center. Food is usually pretty good, the cafeteria staff tries to have a variety of foods, as well as keeping up with traditional New Orleans meals. On weekdays breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Breakfast is from 7am-9am, Lunch is from 11am-2pm and Dinner is from 5pm-7pm, as well as brunch on the weekends.

    The café has its good and bad days, but most days the food isn't that bad. Sometimes you get tired of eating the same thing everyday. For instances, there's always going to be pizza. You have a little variety, but if you don't want anything in the café there's always Jazzmin's, that's the schools little café shop, or you can go to subway, mcdonald's etc. that's far from campus.

    The food is excellent at times. There are moments when it is not up to par. However, there needs to be more venders to come in like Chick-fil-a. So, students can have more dining options.

    Since Xavier is an HBCU we do have the Divine Nine African American Fraternities and Sororities. if pledging is something that you are highly interested in, look to see if they are on probation or suspension and for how long.

    My knowledge is extremely limited on the Greek Life at Xavier but one thing I have heard from upper classmen is that it can be quite expensive. However, do not let this discourage you from participating, for it can be the experience of a lifetime.

    Greek Life is available, but not a huge thing on because it is such a small population that attends Xavier. We try to make it as fun and known that the greeks are around and near.

    I am a member of the Gamma Alpha Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. The Greek Life is not as exciting as I would like because we don't have very many active organizations.

    The Greeks always are throwing some kind of event, and they are all full of likeable people, so the events are pretty cool.

    Greek life is so-so at Xavier. Fortunately it has been improving, but it will never be anything you may see at larger universities.
