    The food tastes great! The caf is underrated....until you get strapped to a toilet. There needs to be more choices on campus. The variety in the area is lacking. I recommend the 19 meal a week plan. You can spend your meals anywhere on campus- this includes convenience stores.

    On campus food is great the first few months, but after a while the food gets dull and boring. There are other restaurants around the area, so you can alternate.

    We have Subway, Chick fil A, Papa Johns, Einsten Bros. Bagels, the cafe, and other restaurants. There are a lot of options for students to enjoy and eat.

    APSU has several great options for dining including Starbucks, Blondies, Einsteins Bagels- the best place ever to pick up a breakfast bagel and piping hot chocolate in the winter- and a Subways. There is also a general cafeteria as well as a Southern fare eatery and a Mexican mini restaurant. APSU is affiliated with Pepsi so in addition to all the flavored water and Cheerwine you can drink your weight in Pepsi.Also, for select student organizations APSU has a catering service to help plan, deliver and serve snacks and/or meals depending on the event.

    The food is awesome. Even now that I'm off campus, I get a meal plan. I was surprised at the healthy choices it has for being a southern school. Really fresh and good. The cooks have a ton of experience. They even bring in local farmers so you can see where your food is coming from.

    Austin Peay has a cafeteria and what is known as the grill. The grill offers you Chik-Fil-A, Papa Johns, mexican, burgers, and homecooked setting food which you can buy with either your plus dollars or cash/debit.

    I am involved in Greek life and I have to say at APSU, it is the best way to get involved here. It's a lot of fun. The only downside is that APSU is a dry campus so there are many restrictions.

    It is interesting to watch how the sororities battle against other sororities in games and activities. The fraternities also battle against each other.

    The campus may not have that many sororities or fraternities, but one few that the do have are still quite exceptional. Their sororities and fraternities love to get involved as much as they can. They make you feel right at home as soon as you meet with them. They do things for big companies like St. Jude Children's Hospital, and the Special Olympics. They are just as involved as other well known sororities and fraternities, maybe even more those them.

    The Greek life at Austin Peay State University is ok. The group is more active during the spring with step shows and campus activities.
