    Depending on the day, the food can be good or not so good. Riverpark campus is supposedly getting better but for now the main campus Cafe is way better and normally has something for everyone (including hibachi).

    The food is not the best in the Cafeteria. As a matter of fact, i only eat their pizza and chicken nuggets. On the upside, the mall and restaurants are located very close by.

    I love the healthy choices in the dining area. However, some of the meals prepared could be more tasty.

    The cafeteria during breakfast is awesome. Lunch and dinner are great during the weekdays and sometime during the weekends.

    The main campus cafe' food is HORRIBLE! Majority of the staff at the cafe' are rude and just like majority of the professors, they're only there for a check. The downtown cafe', the main campus subway, and the main campus chik-fil-a are GREAT, from the staff to the food.

    The cafe is more like a buffet than anything else and some of there food is great and others not so much but all in all I enjoy it. There is the cafe, Chick-fil-a, Subway, and Einstein Bros. on campus and down on river park in the Rankin Den and there are restaurants downtown also along Broadway.

    I don't have much to say about the cafeteria on Main campus because I have only been there once. Its is buffet style eating and it all looks clean. I do have a lot to say about the Riverpark dining. We have a place called the Den. Over the years I has been pretty inconsistent. For the first semester here, the food was great although there were not many healthy options. Then for the next year and a half the food was pretty bad. You never knew whether you were gonna get what you ordered or even if they kept track of your ticket. Everything was fried and pretty bland. I stopped eating there for a while because of it. Then the Den moved to a new location. This new location, where it is located now, is much cleaner although kind of out of the way. The food this last year has gotten progressively better. They have extensively expanded their selection and the quality of the food and service has significantly improved. The hot meal is still pretty bland but they occasionally have specials that are quite good. Their ordered meals are very tasty and there are a lot more healthy items. Its not the best but they have made leaps and bound from what they used to be.

    From what I know, Greek Life is really good here. I have some friends in it and they say it is super welcoming and always overcoming challenges within itself. We also don't go crazy with Greek Life unlike other larger schools, they just have a good time.

    Greek life on campus is very active. Every September, the sororities have a sorority rush event to recruit new members. The sororities and fraternities often sponsor campus events, mostly at the beginning of the Fall term and the end of the Spring term.
