    The Gainesville square is super cute with boutique style restaurants and shops, then down a few stoplights is every chain you could think of. I don't have a meal plan just because I live off campus and would only eat there when I have classes, so it was expensive for me. But if you live on campus the meal plan would work.

    I haven't eaten there before, but I have been in the cafeteria, and it gives you a large variety of foods to choose from,

    Lots of variety. Prices are a little high, but what school isn't.

    I like how the meal program is set up and the food is great! If there are any food issues (allergies) etc they will work with you so there is food available that is healthy for you.

    The food is okay for the most part. I'm definitely not starving. I feel that the staff does the best that they can to assure quality food and many options. Sometimes I just feel as if they don't have enough variety.

    There are two locations as to where you can get something to eat. The dining hall has some good food and if you want something different, or if you're running late, you can also stop at the Tea Room for some good food and coffee.

    I've found mixed reviews on the dining hall's food. After attending oncampus for a semester (and offcampus as an online student for another semester), I've found their food to be okay. It's good when you first arrive, but you will quickly grow tired of it because there is a severe lack of variety. There's about 3 or 4 entree options, and they are the same every week. For dessert lovers, there's a lot of options. Honestly, I think this is why at least half of the student population seems to be overweight.

    What I've heard: The food is GREAT, but don't be afraid to work it off sometimes.

    Greek Life is an amazing experience that I would not trade for anything in the world. Everyone is so friendly, whether they're in your sorority or not. Not a party school and it's a dry campus so all the sororities focus on doing good in the community.

    There's lots of Greek life at Brenau. We are home to eight sororities. Each helps different causes, such as the homeless, cancer victims, or neglected animals. Fundraisers are thrown to raise the money needed to give back. Greek life is mainly about friendships, and creating bonds that last forever. If things get tough, your sorority sisters are supposed to be there for you. There's an event to meet and speak with the various sororities, and be sure to do so if these last few sentences sound good to you!

    I have recently joined a sorority, and I love it! Before, I thought i'd never join on because of the cost and because I did not want my grade to slip. But once someone explained it to me, the cost is not bad at all and the girls really help you keep your grades up.
