    The food is one thing that has a down fall, because there isn't much options when it comes to late hours, but when its in the daytime from 11am-1pm there is a variety of selections for lunch and from 4pm-7pm there is different options for dinner.

    Unless you're living on campus with a meal plan, I suggest you bring your own lunch. The food quality is good, it's just really expensive.

    Not many options. Almost no vegan options and everything is over priced.

    Our food and dinning has just been updated. You can get almost anything from food on the grill to the fresh salad bar! Tons of vending throughout the campus and restaurants in close proximity 5 minutes via car.

    The commons food is mediocre and expensive. The dining area is normally rather crowded and can be obnoxious.

    They don't have that many options. It's like high school cafeteria food. At the Mug (the on campus coffee shop) the workers are lazy and have poor work ethic. The food is terrible, the coffee is terrible, and it's all over priced. The dorm students only get a 10% discount at the Mug where a sandwich and a small coffee can cost you $8 AFTER the discount. In the cafeteria most of the cashiers have poor work ethic. They don't always tell you how much the food costs before putting their hand out asking for your meal card. You have to ask for a FULL receipt that includes the listed items if you want to make sure that they're not ripping you off (and believe me, they do that often). You shouldn't have to ask, the point of a receipt is to see what you' paid for. The only good thing is that dorm students get a 40% discount at the cafeteria. Unfortunately, if you don't use up all your money on your meal plan by the end of the semester your options are to buy overly priced bulk items or your money will just disappear. You won't get it back, and it won't roll over to next semester.

    We have two sororities, contact someone in them and decide if you want to join, it's a big part of college you don't want to miss out on.

    There are a couple but there are also off campus ones that you can choose from as well. There isnâ??t specific housing for Greek life that I know of.
