    The dining hall has really good food, but there are also other places on campus to eat! There is the grill, the pod, and java city. The Grill serves things like hamburgers, but they also serve breakfast, and the staff is wonderful. The Pod is cool to hang out in and serves good food too, they also have some healthier choices! Java City is basically like a Starbucks with a different name! It is awesome!

    The cafe used to be a 5 star cafe but the chef decided to take a cooking job. He was a professional so now our food is a 4 star. The food is still good, I go crazy at the dessert bar.

    Lander provides three main dining options which are the café, the bearcat den, and the P.O.D. express. The café gives students a variety of delicious meal options ranging from a home cooked meal to a deli sandwich along with a dessert bar with tons of choices such as cookies, cake and pie. The only problem that I have found with the café is that the meals tend to repeat themselves a lot. I prefer to eat in the bearcat den using my bearcat bucks because I can grab a meal that is both quick and convenient like a burger, chicken fingers, or sub. The P.O.D. express is another dining option and it offers quick meals like sandwiches. I donâ??t really eat at the P.O.D. express often. There is also a coffee cart located in the library which is always convenient in the mornings.

    Each day in the dining room is very different, but also the same. Certain stations are the same every day, but in the major line they cook different stuff every day. The food is mostly good and usually they have something for everyone. The dessert bar is huge and definitely has something for everyone.

    Lander has a variety of fraternities and sororities to suit the interests and personalities of all Lander students. Being involved in Greek life is a great way to meet new people, serve your community, and participate in social events.

    I really wouldn't know what the Greek Life is like because I'm not apart of one, but from what I've seen, they volunteer and do a lot of community service. They have fun and give back.

    Greek life is growing at Lander. Joining a Greek organization is a great way to get involved on campus but also with charity work as well. The members of Greek life are well known students who are always willing to help Lander activities.
