    The food at Coastal is average: not too bad, not too great. There is enough variety to choose from between the many dining options. The convenience stores on campus and at UP also sell frozen foods and snack items that are available for purchase with your student ID card.

    Might I suggest the Kung Pao Chicken? There are a variety of food options on campus. That being said, the quality and taste also vary.

    Hicks dining hall is just like your typical college buffet-style eatery. UP cafe is based upon whats on the menu, CINO Grille is definitely the best place to eat at though. Hackler Grille does provide meal equivalency but is usually for golfers.

    More food stations coming. Sometimes the food is good, sometimes its not, which is the way cafeteria food is. Kinda expensive though.

    Didn't spend alot of time in the cafeteria at first since I had a kitchen, but now Hicks Dining hall has become the hub of my social activity. There are alot of selections, but it is cafeteria food, so it does all start to seem the same after awhile.

    They have a handful of eateries, but the food isn't too good. The salad bar and deli sections never fail, but some improvement could help. They finally added a Starbucks in the library so that helps a lot and we still have more places being added on for next year.

    I wish there were more options for food on-campus dining but we do have very nice dining options. We just received a Starbucks in our library so that was a nice addition.

Student Responses to Review Topic: Greek Life

    The Greek life at Coastal is very lacking and is almost nonexistent. There are rarely any sorority/fraternity events and the city of Conway doesn't allow Greek housing. Ultimately, the few fraternities/sororities that are available to Coastal students are not much more than a regular club that charges you for membership.

    Debatable- there are numerous frats and sors. Some are great, others an embarrassment.

    I was kind of upset that I saw every Greek except the Deltas. I heard they are coming back though.

    Greek life is a great way to meet others- not just in your sorority or fraternity, but in all sororities and fraternities on campus.
