    Our dining halls have a little bit of everything for everyone. If you are a vegan, a pizza lover or someone that just loves sweets. I promise you the dining halls will exceed your expectations.

    Landrum and Lakeside are the two main cafeterias on campus. There are endless options of food,but that can be a bad thing. It's easy to gain the freshman fifteen if you don't watch what you eat,so be careful.

    There are about eight places to chose from when eating at Georgia southern, the selection includes anything you can think of from American to Asian and everything in-between. At Georgia Southern we use dinning plans which allows you to have a certain amount meals a week depending on the meal plan that you paid for.

    If you're on campus and want to see what campus has to offer, there are always the dining halls. You can pick from Landrum or Lakeside, Landrum being the bigger of two and having more options. You can choose pizza, nachos, home cooking, American cuisine, chinese or you can keep it simple with pasta, salads, or sandwiches. Of course, if you don't want dining hall food, there is always the on-campus Chick-Fil-a, Market Street Deli, the Union Deli, or Wrapsody. Or if you're just in the mood for a quick drink hit up Zach's Brews in the library or Starbucks in the Union.

    Over the course of the year, the quality of the food goes up and down, but there are quite a few options for lunch and dinner. Between the two dining halls, breakfast is usually the same with occasional pancakes, but the usual hashbrowns, bacon, biscuits, grits, eggs, oatmeal, muffins, and sausage. Lunch and dinner at both have an option for an oriental-type meal, pizza, made-to-order pasta dishes, burger or hot dog with fires, a homemade southern style meal, and dessert. There are additional choices at each individual dining hall. One dining hall is located right in the middle of campus and is two stories with a beautiful view of the pond. The other is right near most dorms and a short walk. The halls close before midnight, and open at 7:30 AM.

    Georgia Southern has two dining halls that serve just about everything that a student could want. They are very spacious and well designed. The staff is very helpful and hospitable. Most importantly, the food is cooked with the up most attention payed to quality and dedication.

    If you have a meal plan, Landrum and Lakeside are all you can eat. You'll probably get tired of them eventually though, so if you don't mind spending more money, there's Chikfila, Wrapsody, Market Grill, etc.

    Landrum and Lakeside are buffet style, but they get old quickly. Chik Fil A and other on campus restaurants are a terrific break from them.

    There is a large Greek life on campus, but it is not necessary to be Greek. Greeks and non-Greeks associate with each other in a positive way.
