    It all depends on what day an whom is working in the dining hall, but my dining hall experiences were fantastic. Wide variety of food, including vegetarian and vegan options, and a desert bar, always! There are hundreds of restaurants around campus as well!

    We only have one dinning hall and I am told it is not that good. You would think that for as many students that attend GSU they would have the money to build a few more with better selections.

    Since Iâ??m a commuter, I donâ??t eat food from the dining halls much, Iâ??ve only had food from there like 3 times, granted those 3 times were pretty good, I still canâ??t really comment too much on dining hall food. I can however say that there are a lot of food options I there, thereâ??s fast food type stuff like burgers and fries, thereâ??s a salad bar, you can get customized stuff made like stir fry style and other options like vegan and gluten free, so that was cool to see. I usually just bring my own lunch from home every day, but when I donâ??t, I never starve because being Downtown you have the world of food at your fingertips, from large chain restaurants like McDonald's to smaller more personal and locals spots.

    The food options at GSU are pretty bad. All of the cafes serve some sort of fast food. Grocery shopping and cooking for yourself is a must.

    Other than the occasional over cooked chicken or fish, the food is delicious. They make really good omelettes and smoothies and the fruit is always fresh. And if you live in patton hall (which I do), the dining hall on the first floor is open 24/7!

    Most of the food is fried, but there are healthy alternatives with fresh fruit and salads available every day. The quality of the food is still pretty good and Patton is open 24 hours Monday-Thursday if you need a late night meal

    Greek life is very small at GSU, but the people who are in Greek life feel like they are better than everyone else. They walk around like they own the campus. When you walk by Greek housing it smells like pot and alcohol.

    Love it. So glad I decided to rush. In high school I never would have imagined myself going greek, but at a school this big and this diverse, it's tough to meet friends. This is the best way to meet people, become philanthropic, and have fun.

    It is great at GSU. Students can involve in community service projects, have a chance to build leadership skills and build up networks.

    Greek life is very much present here but it's not overbearing. Every Tuesdays and Thursdays select fraternities and sororities step and/or stroll in the courtyard on campus.
