    I have never had a meal plan, but on the few occasions I have eaten at the dining halls, the food was good. There are two dining halls (Landrum and Lakeside), as well as a Gus Mart, Starbucks, Chick Fil A, and other on campus eateries as well as close by off campus eateries like Subway, Zaxby's, Insomnia Cookies, etc... However, between the two dining halls, Lakeside Dining is far better.

    I had the Gold Meal plan during my Freshman year and I absolutely loved it. It is really easy to get tired of eating the same things everyday, but there are two different facilities and each change their menu on the regular. And even if you are tired of the same old, same old, dining hall food, both meal plans come with Dining Dollars that you can use to buy grocery store items at campus stores. There are two Gus Marts, a Chick Fil A, and a few other locations spread out that give you even more options. During finals week, I was too busy to walk all the way to the dining facility, so on the Monday of finals week, I went to Gus Mart and bought enough Ramen to last me the entire week. It helped with my studying, and I ended up passing all of my finals.

    I have heard that they sometimes do special things in the dining hall like specific meals that correspond with upcoming holidays, and sometimes they even have themes.

    I haven't actually eaten on campus, but what of seen from their dining halls looks great. The food that I had outside campus in Statesboro was also very good.

    Dining could be better. While there was a salad bar there weren't all too many healthy options. The coffee bar is great though!

    The university has recently updated their dining choices and now has very diverse options of food. They dining hall is always clean and very open so that students can interact with one another while eating in the dining halls. The school has also upgraded to accommodate vegan, gluten free, dairy free, and any other food preferences for students.

    The dining hall is doable. Trust me, you'll start getting sick of the food in no time, but when that is all you have then you will make do! The dining hall offers a lot of different things, however, milkshakes, any dessert you name, salad bar, home cooked foods, and etc. enjoy!!

    Greek Life is a great way to get involved on campus. You will meet a lot of different people through greek life and the school is very supportive of greek students. Greek Life also strives to stay involved in organizations outside of greek life. Many students involved with greek life are involved on campus as well. By becoming greek you will gain so much knowledge about others and the school in general.
