  • My dorm life experience has not been the greatest. If you like to study in the quiet then I recommend you go to the library. There are not enough washing…

    The cafe is terrible! There is no variety, and you'll pretty much have to resort to greasy fast food all the time in order to sustain.

    The food is not the best very unhealthy but coming from southern CA it was a big change. The union food with Burger Studio and Chick Fil-A was excellent. The cafeteria staff was friendly most of the time. Breakfast was my favorite meal.

    The cafe is not one of the highlights of DSU. Chick fil A in the union is tasty but can get old quickly.

    The food here is pretty good in the cafeteria. There are not too many options in the union. There are only two resturants to choose from food wise; Burger Studio where you get to build your own burger and Chik-Fil-A. They also have Freshens which is a smoothie bar and a JAva City.

    Dining at DSU is very enjoyable with the all day omlet bar to the soda fountain in the cafeteria. There is always a wide range of food to choose from.

    Greek Life drives most of the social scene on campus. Each fraternity/sorority becomes very close-knit due to the small numbers on campus. It is a great way to get out and meet new people on campus. There is little to no hazing.

    I am not Greek, but a lot of my friends are. The Greeks don't just stick to their fraternities and sororities. They are very sociable and include everyone who wants to be Greek regardless of what the person looks like or acts like.

    Greek life can be fun. I personally am not in a Greek at DSU, but I still hang out with the Greeks and part take in some of the social functions open to the community or students of DSU.

    Since I am Greek Affiliated I know a little more about Greek life than a non-Greek Student. Greeks have there hand in just about every aspect of college life. The Greeks here on campus have donated countless hours to community service and the betterment of others. Also Greeks on average have a higher GPA then non gGreeks students. Greeks also have higher graduation rates then non-Greek students
