    There's a variety of different kinds of foods available, of course, you have your sandwich/pizza's available, as well as our favorite Subway, and small stores located around to pick your favorite fruit or yogurt.

    there are lots of clubs and activities. There are also many on campus jobs available. The dining could be better, though. The student dining center has short hours on weekends, compromising the students who dorm on campus 24/7 and forcing them to look to spending money on restaurants and delivery options. Also, the student ID is used at the campus student center, Hillwood Commons, at places like Starbucks, Subway and the cafe. The money on the ID is decreased each time, however. Those dining options should be part of the meal plan, like it is at the dining center.

    The food is done by personally selected chefs by the school. The food is amazing. Feels like a 5 star restaurant. Large variety of food. Also there is a subway and a Starbucks on campus.

    There are many Frats and Sororities on campus. They hold various events throughout the year and Greek Week when they all come out and show out. Each Frat and Sorority sticks together as brothers and sisters. There is no competition everyone gets along.
