    As a vegetarian, they don't have many great options in the main cafeteria- I just eat salad and pasta all the time. But they always have yummy fresh veggies, and I live for the breakfast/brunch they serve! FSC also has a quick-service place underneath the main caf lovingly called the undercaf that has fries, mozzarella sticks, flatbreads, quesadillas and a Freshens smoothie joint. Our campus also has a cute little grille in the middle of campus called The Buckstop that serves fresh burgers (and black bean burgers!), grilled veggies, and even fresh brick oven pizza! Next to the library we have Tutu's Cafe, a cyber cafe where you can buy coffees, teas, salads, and the best muffins you could ever imagine. You definitely wont starve, and if you aren't in the mood for something the caf is serving, you can always buy trail mix or pizza rolls in the Moc Mart, a mini mart next to the undercaf.

    There are options throughout campus but the food available is very limited. There's the caf which is buffet style but often the food isn't cooked all the way. The undercaf is great for late night snacks and smoothies. There's the BuckStop and Grill Master's which have hamburgers and pizza. Tutu's is right next to the library and serves as the Starbucks on campus with tons of coffee options and bakery items. Chipotle is very popular as well as Chick-fil-a.

    The food it decent, but nothing to sing praises about. The sandwich line is good and breakfast is probably the best meal of the day. The best time to be at the cafe is when there is real ice cream, it is absolutely delicious! Sometimes the Cafe will surprise you though and have something super delicious. The Buck Stop is actually new this year and is fantastic! It has pizza and burgers, along with a vegetarian option instead of burgers. The Moc Mart, TuTu's, and the Grill Master also have delicious options if you are looking to mix things up.

    The food is OK and that is looking at it from a good perspective. It is a hit or miss, but the grill master is great since they cook fresh burgers and such. However, it gets old.

    At Florida Southern, the food has its good and bad moments. You have selections from the cafe , underage, and grill. When eating at Florida Southern, if the food is fresh, it will taste pretty good, but for the most part, many people with cars get there food elsewhere.

    Greek life is very active! I'm personally not in Greek, and a lot of the events on campus involve Greek organizations, but I don't feel left out at all.

    Greek life is a huge part of FSC. Many people are introduced by the frat/sorority they are in (for example: This is John Smith, he's a Lambda Chi.) It's how people are grouped together and known but many individuals do not participate in Greek life and still have a very enjoyable college experience. It all depends on the person.

    Greek life is mostly awesome, but if you aren't in greek life you might feel left out. Sometimes it completely overtakes the school since one out of every three people are involved in greek life.

    Though I do not belong go a sorority/fraternity of my own, I have seen what these groups do and I can say that they are sisterhood/brotherhood like no other. They are there for their brother's and sisters no matter what. One day I wish to join one of these amazing groups and have a family away from home.

    Most of the people who are not in an athletic team have greek affiliation. I am a member of Alpha Delta Pi and can only advise new freshman to look into rushing. The school does a great job with it.
