    Good most of the time, but you get used to it and it gets boring. The first two weeks, everything tastes impeccable. Then, they show you what you're going to eat for the rest of the year.

    While I wouldn't describe it as world-class, it's pretty good. They have a lot of different options, and there's more than one dining hall you can go to if you want to switch it up.

    Lots of great options for everyone; gluten-free, vegan, vegetarian. The meal plans are reasonably priced and there are plenty of outside options such as restaurants around the campus.

    I never ate in the dining halls, but the other places on campus were not all that good. chick-fil-A was always good and the surrounding restaurants in the downtown area.

    When it comes to the food, it’s so good. The best part of it is how clean the environment is. It gives you the feeling to eat all day.

    In the dining halls, it's like a buffet style, but there's different "themes" everyday. However, the food can get boring when you start to feel homesick and miss food from home. This also depends on the taste and preferences of the student.

    Greek Life is very present and in your face at GSU but even if you are not affiliated with a Greek organization you should still be able to make friends.

    I never knew there were so many sororities until I went to Georgia State. They even have there own housing units. Greek life is great and just like clubs they are also active in the community. Do not let Stomp the Yard fool you, they do step but it is more about building a brotherhood/sisterhood. I am currently in a chapter that deals with my philosophy major, next year I will join a sorority and I may even stay in Greek housing.

    Greek life at GSU is pretty vibrant. The multicultural Greeks always stroll in the plaza and there's always Greek events around campus.

    The Greek Life is very active, and rush week is amazing. If you're interested in joining a Fraternity or Sorority, you will definitely have a good time. All the Greek Life is very welcoming and they get everyone in their chapter heavily involved in all their events. Some of the Fraternities and Sororities also hold events such as dances and movie nights for their members and a date or friend.
