    I have actually never eaten on campus, but all of the food in Louisiana is great. There's an Einstein Bagel Bros on campus, which is awesome for those who grew up in the north where these stores grew on trees.

    Many fast food restaurants are located on or near campus, including Raising Cane's, Wendy's, and Starbucks. Downtown Lake Charles provides a variety of non-chain Cajun restaurants. Pujo's Street Cafe and Luna's Bar and Grill are recommended.

    The food and dining is excellent in the cafe of the new ranch. It is inexpensive and you get your money's worth. There is specials for everyday of the week and they are tasty. Don't get too obsessed because your pockets will be empty before you know it.

    I'm only a prospecting student, but I have several friends who are involved in Greek life. Greek is huge at McNeese, with some sororities and fraternities having over 100 students. It's a great way to meet people, have fun, and get involved in the community.

    Although I am not in one, there are sororities and fraternities for every type of student. At orientation, everyone can explore the Greek's endless possibilities and choose the one that is right for them.

    The Greek life here are usually doing something around campus. They are usually trying to do some fun thing on campus and create activities to help make the campus fun. It helps fight being bored and joining those clubs will keep you from being bored.
