    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,

    The food and dining plans here are for sure top notch! While people complain a lot, in retrospect we have it a lot better than any other college in Arkansas. We have a lot of different dining plans available such as either 5 day access to the Cafeteria, or 7 day. This is vital if one plans to stay the weekend. One can eat here literally 99 times a day, and still only pay for this one time charge for the meal plan. Also, the meal plans include flex. Flex is money that is prepaid on one's meal plan for the food court. In our food court currently, we have just about anything one could be craving. We have the little campus store which holds some fruit, candy, milk, and other breads. Also, there is Chick-fil-A, Howl's Campus Grill, a Philly cheesesteak place, a Chinese place, a Mexican place, and a sushi bar. And if this isn't enough, the city engulfing the college has more than enough affordable meals for the broke college students. Some even give student discounts with proof of enrollment!

    The food in the caf is good, but you will eventually get tired of it. However, they do have special nights where the menu has deluxe dishes. For instance, seafood or steak night.

    The cafeteria is great when you first start. There is a giant buffet surrounding the area. You get tired of the same foods after a while though.

    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/

    I have been to a few of the fraternity parties because my brother is in one of the campus fraternities. He always speaks highly of his frat and of the others on campus as well. My aunt and grandmother were both members of one of the campus sororities and have nothing negative to say there either, but personally I don't have great knowledge on this subject.
