    Food and dining is always warm, and at a very good price. they offer different options from oatmeal to sandwiches or soups, harper has a little bit of everything so students can have a list to choose from.

    As a Harper athlete, I've spent many hours stuck at school in between practices and classes and games during season. The cafeteria in A- building has a good variety of foods. They also have an on-campus Starbucks and Subway!

    The food is pretty good. Harper just acquired a contract with Sodexo, which is a food handling company. There are alot of endless possibilities when it comes to the Cafe. and the prices are pretty decent.

    There is no Greek life at Harper College but since there is not it forces you to focus more in school. If you really want that 'Greek life' experience Harper will bore you to death so you will have something to work towards!

    There is not really any Greek life besides Phi Theta Kappa which is academic. You need a 3.5 GPA to get in and it's nice for receiving scholarships once you transfer.
