    Boar's Head is delicious and healthy! Chick fil a is great for fry cravings and fast service. Unfortunately, both are expensive. Busy students will run out of flex cash with half the semester left. I loathe the cafe. Fried chicken Thursday is okay. Burgers are good but rare, as are fries. The ice cream machine is amazing. Don't eat the pizza...but if you have to opt for cheese, not pepperoni. The Starbucks is great and the POD store has good but expensive snacks. You can use flex cash at both.

    GSW has a cafeteria for its main source of dining. The cafeteria or dining hall as some call it contains many different options for eating. A salad bar sits in the center along with place for desserts and a cooking station for small side dishes. It also has a line on the left side for the main course meals and next to that sits a soft serve ice cream machine with various toppings to choose from. On the right side contains a place to get plenty of pizza. The cafeteria is great for eating as much you want. Also on the opposite side of campus there are Boars Head deli and Chick Fil A. These dining locations were voted upon by students and have become very popular. They are both open to the public and are even better for students with a low budget because flex can be used at these two dining locations. Flex cash can also be spent at the Starbucks on campus and the newly renovated Pod Market which contains many snacks.

    The food has its good days and bad days in the cafeteria. The dessert is the best. Lunch time is the better than dinner time. Chick-Fil-A is on campus but you may get tired of eating it all the time. Boar's Head has good sandwiches, never heard a complaint.Java City is basically like our Starbucks the coffee is pretty good iced but not hot personally.Their smoothies are pretty awesome. The cookie are to die for as well as their muffins. The bagels seems homemade and extremely delicious. There are off campus food options such as McDonald's, Zaxby's, Waffle house and more.

    The food here is ok at some point. Next year they are installing a Chick-fil-a and Boar's Head subs where the old Cane's Den used to be which will be great. The Cafeteria has its off days, but the signature day is Fried Chicken Thursday which is really delicious.

    There are several places to eat on campus. Such as Canes Den which is a fast food dining service. Students love this restaurant the rest. Java City is just like Starbucks and also has smoothies and sandwiches. GSW have a convenient store. The cafeteria serves everything from fast food to home cooked food.

    I've only eaten in the cafeteria once, but I really enjoyed my experience. I've heard from my friends that there are good days and bad days, as like it is in all cafeterias.

    The food at the dining hall is usually pretty good. I can imagine it getting tiresome very quickly but that would happen with any dining hall food. There are special theme days every other week or so for variety. There is also a coffeeshop on campus.

    There are a variety of different Greek organizations to choose from. For Fraternities men can choose from Sigma Chi, Kappa Sigma, and Chi Phi. Women of the campus can join a Sorority and two of the main sororities at GSW are Kappa Delta and Zeta Tau Alpha. Upperclassmen whom already joined a a Greek organization are very helpful and encourage new incoming GSW students to join the Greek life.

    Here we have 6 female sororities and 5 male fraternities. Everyone that I know in the Greek Life are very nice and if you feel like you want to be apart of it, then they will guide you through the process with joy.

    Our Greeks are the best in the state! Brotherhood and sisterhood really mean something to our community. There is a place for everyone!

    There is a very present Greek life on this campus. Both nphc and phc. There also seems to be plenty of Greek unity, which is always good:)

    I am not part of Greek Life, but I do know that they are great at serving the community around GSW, such as less privileged children.
