Student Responses to Review Topic: Food And Dining

    The food offered at GCSU's food hall "The MAX" is decent quality, but gets old fairly quick. The breakfast and brunch are consistently good, but I find myself going out often for lunch and dinner, if not cooking for myself. You're better off eating around GA college and getting one of the lesser meal plans as a back up. If you choose to eat at the MAX, enjoy long lines and half the place not even being open.

    The food AROUND Georgia College is great. Theres plenty of restaurants right off campus that take your bobcat card and are quick. But the Max isn't the best. The more I eat there the less I want to come back. The food is repetitive and half of the time not all of the stations are open because you aren't coming in the proper hours for Lunch and Dinner time, but if you go during those times you have to wait in incredibly long lines.

    Food is about average, there is always pizza, salad, sandwiches, ice cream and other treats available. The stir fry line always has good food, and the hot meals are average. Breakfast has lots of choices with eggs, bacon, bagels, and cereal.

    The Max, or Saga as it was known, is a great dining hall. The staff are amazing and so sweet. The food is always hot and there is always a variety of foods being served. Though it may not be a home-cooked meal, it is a great dining option for students.

    It's classic dining hall food, but definitely nicer that anything served in a typical grade school cafeteria.

    We have a running joke about the Max, our campus' dining hall. In short, if you eat there after being away for an extended period, you will get a case of diarrhea so fierce that your ancestor's will feel. We have a term for it, but I'm pretty sure I can't include expletives in my review. The Max is still legit though. Most of it is good, but some days the options are laughable (as in you're literally laughing as you stand in line). We have a stir fry line (which also occasionally doubles as our taco stand), burger/fries station, sandwiches, pizza, a breakfast nook for when you can't shake that waffle craving, and a diner that serves Fried chicken every Wednesday. If you don't want anything at the max, there are a ton of options downtown and in the immediate area. Not only that, but a few of them offer pretty good deals. Asian Bistro has $2 Tuesdays, Amici's and the Brick have discount Wing nights, Kai Thai has a discount night on Thursdays and Saturdays. Then of course we have the fast food staples : Mickey D's, Zaxby's, Chik-fil A, Subway. Most places will take your Bobcat card as payment if you're short on cash. Pro-Tip: Go to Cookout. Get a Cookout Tray with a Fancy Shake. You will thank me.

    The cafeteria, The Max, has great food with lots of variety. However, after several months you will soon grow tired of the food having tried just about everything they have. Be prepared to cook for yourself sometimes.

    Many sororities and fraternities are offered. There are lots of events and socials, so if you enjoy parties, making friends, and don't mind the time commitment, it can be lots of fun.

    There's truly a place for everyone in GCSU's Greek life, and it definitely makes college a lot easier of a transition as a freshman!

    There's a lot of them if that's your thing. Phi Mu, Delta Zeta, Alpha Delta Pi, etc. Minority students, there are BGLO (Black Greek Letter Orgs) if you want them - AKA, ZPB, DST, KAP, APA, Mu Sigma Upsilon. They throw a lot of the Black parties on campus.

    I personally did not go greek, but I have roommates who did and they absolutely love their sorority. I do not feel as though I am being left out of any fun activities having not done one though. I think this school is small enough that you could be happy going either way.

    The Greeks usually hold a step show in the Fall. Greek life is an awesome way to get plugged in and better acquaint yourself with the campus. Students are not Greek because of peer pressure, most people love it and it helps them mature and get organized. I did not pledge but for my friends who did, it made a huge difference in how they matured over the course of being at Georgia College. Greek life on campus is diverse, there is a sorority or fraternity for everyone who is interested. The best thing to do is ask if you want to learn more about a particular sorority or fraternity.

    Huge Greek life here. At least half the students here are in a sorority or fraternity. Most of the homes surrounding the campus are occupied by them, and they tend to have lots of parties apparently.
