    the food at fort valley is nothing short of amazing. the cafeteria is large but well-organized, and there's always something new to try. they always have multiple lines with different options, including a grill, pizza line, and salad bar, so there's something there for everyone. the breakfast here is the best i've had at any school. there's pancakes and eggs every day, a belgian waffle maker, and even an omelette station where you can choose all the ingredients and they'll make it fresh right in front of you. and for people who love breakfast for every meal of the day, there's always cereal available at every meal. another amazing thing about fort valley is that there's a chic-fil-a right on campus, and it's extremely close to the dorms. there's also a sandwich/wrap shop right next to the chic-fil-a for those who want something healthier. and if that wasn't enough, there's a pizza shop in the clubhouse, which is located closer to the dorms than any other eatery. but for those who would rather not leave the dorms at all, there's two vending machines in every dorm.

    Meal times are my favorite parts of the day and I love selection. We have a buffet dining system and I get all of what I want, and none of what I don't want. And the chefs and servers are genuine helps and food connoisseurs.

    There are several on-campus restaurants that the students can dine in, as well as a cafeteria that has a variety of foods to choose from. The dining services take criticism and ideas for meals from the students to make the experience better.

    Greek life is very interesting and exciting because they are always throwing parties or having kickbacks. If you go to these parties don't act crazy cause they are watching at all times and they will talk about you.!!!!!!!

    In order to be involved in Greek life, you have to have good grades, and it's important that you maintain a positive reputation around campus. Students involved in fraternities and sororities are more that satisfied with the opportunities that come with being involved in Greek life.

    We have an assortment of sororities at The Fort Valley State University which excels to not only be apart of the community and get a good education. But, they know how to simply partake in the fun life of Campus. There's no shortage of parties, though they also have faith. Attending and inviting people on campus and fellow brothers to Church Services on Sunday Morning. How's that for knowing where your priorities lay?
