    Fresh Ideas is the company currently contracting with HSSU. They are set up as an all-you-can-eat buffet, which has both advantages and disadvantages. It's good because they are open for specific time periods throughout the day serving either breakfast, lunch, or dinner. You pay one fee and then you can go back for more as often as you'd like. The cafeteria is large and very open, so students can meet up and work on homework or study for a test while eating; however, for those of us who can't afford to spend a lot of money, this can be a disadvantage. In order to enter the cafeteria, you have to pay at the door. While the prices are reasonable, $5 for a lunch when all you want is a small salad is quite pricey. Overall, the food is great. You have a variety to choose from and you can eat as much as you'd like.

    Most activities that take place are planned by the Greek associations; stroll offs, bbq's, etc. Many of the faculty members are either Deltas or AKAs.
