    First off, I can understand how many wouldn't consider the Cafeteria to be all that great. Unlike the other more known colleges in the state of Mississippi, we don't have external food options, that is to say, we don't have a Chick-Fil-A or Pizza Hut or what other commercial fast food place. The actual food places here are rather good, and that would be the Cafeteria and Ruben's. The Caf, as you will grow into habit of calling it, has pretty good food. You have options from the Pizza, Exhibition, Deli, Comfort and Grill areas. Including a salad/fruit bar and Vegan bar which recently started serving a variety of beans, that's a part of the salad bar section. There is also a section for cereal and whatever the dessert of choice is. There are multiple standard drink machines with an ice cream machine nearby. A representative from Dole did come by to serve a new type of puree, to make smoothies, so hopefully they will be served soon. On occasion, they so serve water with various fruit in it and there are a few selections of milk, including vegan-friendly. The Deli, and Grill areas are pretty consistent with what they serve, the menu doesn't change much, however, you do have the freedom to make any number of choices and customize you're order. The Deli serves sandwiches, flatbreads or wraps depending on your bread choice, and has a range on toppings that are also vegan/vegetarian friendly. Grill serves hamburgers, grilled chicken, eggs (cooked anyway) omelets, pancakes, french toast, waffles and a few other choices. As a plus, the breakfast based items from the Grill are served throughout the day. The Pizza section serves certain staples, such as pepperoni and cheese, however, they also change up the types of pizza on a regular basis, and sometimes serves calzone and bread/cinnamon sticks. The Comfort food changes on a daily, including for breakfast, lunch and dinner. You can also get vegan/vegetarian friendly options from here however, it is not as consistent and you would have to look at the menu to see what will be served. The Exhibition section isn't consistently open, both in terms of days and what time of service. They usually feature food from other countries, however, I wouldn't expect anything too authentic. This was something started recently, from day to day they take orders for personalized pizzas, with toppings that they have on hand and usually have for other pizzas. They also have certain foods that they serve for certain events or holidays. The salad bar and fruit bar usually stay consistent, they do have good options, however they do have new options for a few days. In terms of overall taste: I would say its pretty good. Of course, their have been instances that one particular dish isn't to your taste, and the same food can taste and be cooked rather differently from time to time. Ultimately, that would rely on your own separate tastes, and there have been moments that certain foods just were cooked well. As a special note, they do serve particular foods for Thanksgiving and Christmas. The staples that are usually served during those dinners, such as ham, turkey, dressing and the like. They also have a much wider range of desserts as well such as Cranberry Orange Cake, Apple Pie, Pumpkin Pie and large cookies as well. For other eats, there is a Ruben's and a EcoGrounds on campus. Ruben's is the after-dinner hours eatery on campus. They mainly serve burgers and sandwiches, as well as hot wings. They open at 7PM and close at 10PM. EcoGrounds is your place to get coffee, tea and a variety of hot and cold beverages. They also serve snacks such as muffins, bagels and parfaits if you need something quick to eat. EcoGrounds closes at 12AM, but stop serving certain beverages at 10 or 11, that as depends on who is on staff at the time. They are closed on the weekends however. There is also a Chick-Fil-A right down the street at the Baptist and a place called Deep South Pops, which is also a cafe which is known for its homemade Popsicles.

    Eco grounds is a plus, it's our version of Starbucks and we can us Major bucks to buy different coffee. The cafe isn't good at all, the workers are friendly and nice but Armark is a horrible company with there no competition clause. If your going to make a monopoly atleast provide better service and care. If we're paying 25k a year the food should be good.

    On campus food isn't completely terrible, but it isn't great either. Honestly, it's probably what students mostly complain about on campus. They are currently working on improving it for the coming years. There are plenty of good, cheap off-campus dining options though that are only 5 minutes away.

    I've had a few chances to dine on campus at Millsaps, and my experience has always been good. The selection is great, and the quality and portions served are excellent.

    The cafeteria has a great big range of foods to eat on a daily basis. And the cafeteria staff does a great job in trying new things to keep it new and exciting (sometimes failing, but at least they try!). You tend to get sick of the food but that happens in all places where they have a cafeteria. You have to become creative sometimes if you don't want to eat something you've never eaten before.

    The cafeteria is not great. The food isn't horrible but it is just your standard cafeteria food. Kava house is a good alternative but you can get sick of it fast. Great off campus dining.

    The Caf food does get a little old after awhile. Thankfully you can always go to the grill line and order something if you don't like what the other lines have. There is also Kava, which provides sandwiches and salads. You also get your choice of chips with cookies, fruit, and soup. This is included in the meal plan as well.

    There are 4 sororities and 5 fraternities on campus, all with a fairly equal amount of members. Hazing is not allowed and there aren't any rivalries between the fraternities or sororities.

    The fraternities and sororities at Millsaps are very active both on campus and in the community. They are involved with many community and charity events, and they provide a good source of camaraderie and entertainment on campus.

    Greek life here at Millsaps is not like a normal College. Most of all the people in sororities and fraternities are not exclusive to their affiliated group. The independents often hang out at the houses too unlike a lot of state schools. It is just as great to be an independent as it is to be in a sorority or fraternity, there are no biases.

    Greek Life is thriving at Millsaps! There are four sororities and five fraternities. Each fraternity and sorority has a philanthropy they are strongly dedicated to, which means that there are many philanthropic events each school year.

    Greek life is great at Millsaps. The sororities and fraternities are small enough to where you become really close to your fellow members. It's most as competitive or nerve wracking as big state schools

    greek life is literally the only social life on-campus. the school is well over 50% greek, and offers 5 fraternities and 5 sororities to choose from. the parties are pretty boring, and most people just get ridiculously intoxicated every weekend.
