    The food served at the dining halls are good. Not your mom's home cooked mac 'n' cheese but close enough. They have certain nights where a dining hall may present a them like "Under the sea" (seafood) and other different cuisines. They also have the BEST ice cream and its unlimited and FREE. Yes I just told you that you can get as much ice cream as you want for FREE. But be aware of the freshman 15. If you get tired of the dining hall food we also have a cafeteria across from the library that has fast foods like Chick-fil-A.

    Meal plans= more money. But there are buildings where you can get other food and plus it is Atlanta so there's other places to eat at.

    The food is alright. Don't come expecting gourmet or high cuisine but overall the food is pretty good. There is a lot of variety and different drink choices. There is an omelet and smoothie station where you can get omelets and smoothies made fresh all day. there is also a lot of themes throughout the semester. and sometimes they will give out free stuff like candy and they'll play music. Overall it's really worth it.

    Piedmont dining in my opinion is better than Patton. They have a variety of foods and have a grill where they make quesadillas, omelettes, and even smoothies. The dessert is the bomb dot com. I'm not saying it's the best thing in there but it's pretty good.

    The food is good for like the first week, and then it gets tiring and bland because the food items never change. I wouldn't recommend the food plan/dining hall, if you're a person that loves flavors and spices. Places that sell starbucks and chick-fil-a on campus are fine. For example, panther club, panther cafe, and so on.

    The dining hall at Georgia State is packed with various dishes and snacks for students to experience. It ranges one day from exotic Thai and Indian cuisines to foods that'll remind you of your own home cooked meals. It has a variety of foods depending on your lifestyle. From pescetarianism to vegan, each meal has their unique and appetizing, mouthwatering flavor. Some examples include simple things such as corndogs, hamburgers, pizza, and fries to things such as curry shrimp, chow mein, and chicken parmesan. Desserts aren't to be looked over either. Usually the dining halls have desserts that include freshly baked chocolate chip, sugar, or raisin oatmeal cookies, red velvet cakes, and a plethora of ice cream flavors to choose from, starting with your favorite. Drink selections can also range from a diverse selection of Coca-Cola products, smoothies, and milkshakes.

    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.

    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.
