    This is an area where HBU really lacks. The only dining hall on campus (The baugh) has the weirdest hours and the food is disgusting. On the weekends they don't serve breakfast until 11 and stop serving dinner at 7! For anyone who works off campus these hours are insane as I can't even eat 1 meal here during these times. The workers are pretty incompetent and take about 5 minutes to swipe my id. They serve the same thing everyday and the salad bar is a joke. They redeem the dining life with a chick-fil-a and a coffee shop on campus but again, weird hours. (chik-fil-a closes at 2:30 on Friday?)

    There is Chick Fil A, the POD, and Husky express. The Buagh is good occasionally, it has its moments.

    HBU has the Baugh and Chick-fil-ah(AT HBU), which is expensive, yet we still have Burger king 2 minutes away, Taco bell 5 minutes away, Subway 3 minutes away, Whataburger 6 minutes away. (Still you have to drive to go there).

    The food is delicious. It is home cooked and always different.

    The general cafeteria is pretty decent overall but the variety isn't great at all. After the first month or two it get pretty predictable and boring. The quality is pretty good in general and every once in a while they do something different. And it is buffet style. A big highlight is there is amen on campus Chick fil A that is great and comes in handy more than anyone could ever know.

    The cafeteria food is good and there is also a Chick-Fil-A and a coffee place that is similar to Starbucks called Java City. All the restaurants are good, but a little more variety wouldn't hurt.

    There are many dining areas that you can choice from to eat. There is the traditional cafeteria, a cafe place that serves coffee, smoothies, and pastries, then there is a newly Chick-fi-la.

    The Greek Life is christian based and is very encouraging and supportive each other which makes it fun to be a part of. They do a lot of events to help support and raise money for various causes.

    Not too many traditional big Greeks but many rumors are circulating with new chapters being added in the near future.

    The Greek life is very active and entertaining. Each group has its own unique way of having fun and doing well.

    There is Greek Life on campus, but I am not a part of it. I have multiple friends who are though and they absolutely love it!
