    I like the cafe, my favorite is the sandwich bar. The ladies are so nice and I'm also happy with my food. The pizza is like $2.50 a slice? Something like that, but I've never had a complaint. It's a good variety with sandwiches, pizza, fried chicken, burgers, fries, jalepeno poppers. soup, mozzerella sticks, sushi, nachos, etc. Also, they like planning events so you'll see carnival-like foods in the quad or in the Galleria. Popcorn or hot chocolate are around like every week.

    I've been to the quad once, and it was nice. I got a sandwich and it was pretty good. I think they also have a Starbucks, or some coffee place.

    The food here is great in comparison to the Columbia mall food. There are many options on what you would like to eat. For example, the cafe on campus has sushi, pizza, oriental food, hamburgers, and almost anything you can think of. The food is also fresh as well and made in a timely manner.

    There are sororities on campus such as Phi Beta Kappa. This organization is non profitable and is for two year colleges, such as Howard Community College. Phi Beta Kappa offers scholarships for its academic members. Only academic students can be accepted into this club.
