    Food is okay. I wish we had more options sometimes. Fam's is great though! If only it was a tad bit cheaper. Stinger bucks are awesome while they last.

    The food in the cafeteria seems to get more sketchy as the semester progresses, but there's always pizza and Stinger Bucks!

    The food is selective. Some days there's good food but other days the food is not very appeasing.

    Food is ok, could be better but the people that serve the food are always nice. Food is a little too repetitive.

    HPU offers Stinger Bucks, which are loved by all. The bucks can be used to buy foods both on and off campus. The cafeteria has great choices every day.

    I have not had a bad meal yet! You get a choice of what to eat. Most of the time, you choose between pizza and hamburgers (the main meals) and then a third which has changed every time I have went there. The reason for the one missing star...their cups are cracked and leak. You get used to placing a napkin under your glass, but other than that, the dinning hall is wonderful.

    The caf is not all that great. Jacket buckets and Stinger buckets are very useful though. You can use them at local fast food restaurants in town !

    There's only three frats and two sororities, plus the honorary organizations for band and theater, but they definitely have a big presence on campus.

    The Greek life is small because of the school size but it is very involved and fun.The pledging process is hard but in the end the friendships are worth it. It is not for everyone but definitely worth a try.
