    The food is delicious I just love it, and if I did get tired of caf food then they have more to offer like Chik-Fil-A and Starbucks.

    There is a caf, as we call it, that has a grill, deli, international line, pasta line, and a main line. There's a salad bar, ice cream machine, and desert bar, too. Everything is usually good, but I am so serious when I say DO NOT EAT THE PIZZA. We also have a food court. If you're ever there, go to Godfather's Pizza and buy some hot chicken wings. They are to die for!

    The food is also a hit or miss. Sometimes the cafeteria has pretty good, sometimes it's not very appetizing. But there are other dining options in the food court of the student union such Chic-fil-a, mexican, chinese food, and Starbucks.

    Astate provides food variety. They have Mexican food, Asian food and pizza and chicken. You can also purchase a meal plan for a reasonable price. Not only that but they provide mini stores in the library and student union for snacks. And a Starbucks.

    I personally feel like the food could be way better. The food in the cafeteria has improved from last year, but I think they should make food that is more commonly heard of. Sometimes the healthy options are foods/preparations that I have never seen or heard of. We also have a food court, however I don't like eating in those places either because of all the grease they use in the food. This may just be me considering the fact that 99% of people that I talk to love eating in the food court. But I do love the snack store located in the library. There are tons of healthy options and I find myself stopping there quite often when I'm in a rush to get to class in the mornings and don't have time to stop by the cafeteria. One great thing about food and dining on campus is that each resident living on campus is required to purchase a meal plan, which virtually makes everything on campus free with just a swipe or tap of your student ID,

    This was my favorite part of the campus. All of the sorority houses were on a singular street on campus! The street is known as sorority row and they also have the university's first president's home on that same block. They have 22 different sororities and fraternities, two of which are honors exclusive. You, also, have the choice to live in the house of your fraternity or sorority if you choose.

    I am not a part of any Greek organization, but I can say that they are very active on campus. Most events on campus are hosted by Greek organizations. They definitely bring life to our student union!

    Last year alone, we had over two hundred females go through formal fall recruitment; that's an Arkansas State University first! Depending on what route you are wanting to take, I would advise you to visit http://www.astate.edu/a/leadership-center/greek-life/
