    I am a commuter, but have been told that the food is great the first few weeks, and declines in quality as time goes on. The food hall always smells great!

    Kentucky State University's dining experience is made with health conscious students in mind. The cuisine at Kentucky State University is prepared to ensure that allergic reactions, and other dietary/medical needs of students are met. The most popular day in the dining hall is Fried Chicken Wednesday. Also, Kentucky State University has it's own dining grill, along with Chic-Fil-A and Subway. In addition, Kentucky State University has a mini convenience store and coffee spot called the Thirsty Thorobred. Also, located on south campus it a pizza and wings food place. The food court areas can all be paid for by the use of flex dollars.

    Cafeteria food is terrible also. It looks like prison food and tastes like it also. We have chik fil a , and subway and that's pretty decent.

    There is a Chic-Fil-A, Subway, Thorobred Grill, and recently another food place as opened up and these places have quality food that is very satisfying. However, the cafeteria on campus is lacking. It is only a step up from public high school cafeteria food and it is usually bland because its 'catering' food. But, it has some good qualities too like they have good pizza which is usually available, a solid salad bar, good cookies, soft serve ice cream, and an always available waffle maker.

    The food is good. There is always salad out for those who choose to eat healthy, then there is pizza, burgers, and much more for those who don't want salad.

    The food here is not that bad if your really hungry you will find something to eat. We have fried chicken Wednesday and that's just about all they serve the whole day. We have pizza, chicken, pasta, calzones, stir fry, veggie options, and salad bar

    Greek Life (from the outside looking in) is pretty impressive. Watching the Greeks stroll and have step shows has always been enjoyable. In addition, the Greeks are heavily active in community service.
