    The campus is very flexible when it comes to food and dining. There are three different campus dining halls that one may attend, and none of these are restricted to where you simply live. There are also mini-fast food restaurants in the Plaster Student Union that one can go to if one has the knackering for Subway or Chick-Fil-A. They also have a store called Bear Necessities that has plenty of food and drinks that a student can choose from. In order to buy nearly anything, one is required to have a boomer meal and a meal plan so you can take advantage of these facilities as much as possible.

    There are plenty of great options...outside of campus. The fast food at the PSU is terrible and greasy. You will be sick of the dining hall food by the second week of school.

    Their dining halls have a variety of food to chose from including special dietary need food. They also have healthy food including a salad bar.

    Missouri State University is well known for it's abundance of cafeteria choices. The dining staff is always accommodating and friendly. The taste of the food in the dining hall grows old quickly, I'm afraid. Conveniently, when the dining hall choices grow commonplace and lack-luster, MSU has a student union with several popular food chains that everyone will love.

    The food is decent, but not great. It's exciting for the first few weeks, because there are so many different options. However, there is not much variety from day to day with these options, and it gets old quickly when you eat there for three meals each day. There is also a Subway, Panda Express, Chick-Fil-A, and Papa John's in the Student Union.

    The school food may not be the greatest but they have amazing restaurants all around the campus just walking distance away.

    The Greek Life and those who join it are generally volunteer loving and kind people that will help when possible. They give you several connections out into the community and allow you to connect with people inside your specific fraternity/sorority so you will always have sisters/brothers around campus.

    I am a part of Greek Life here at Missouri State University. Before I joined, as an outsider, I was intrigued by the strong interrelationships the Greek community seemed to have. The standards the Greek Life community holds themselves to are incredibly impressive, and it's an honor to associate myself with them. For the most part, there is no hierarchy.

    It's not as big on this campus as at some schools, but there are lots of options available for anyone who is interested in joining a fraternity or sorority.

    Personally, I mostly only enjoy Phi Sigma Pi because it's not like your normal frat. It's co-ed and you don't have to live in a house. However, the rest of the greek life is good. I hear a lot of good things form the men and women in the sororities and fraternities on campus.

    Greek Life here at Missouri State is a wonderful thing to get involved in, though you don't need to get involved to meet people and have a good time. You can easily make friends and get involved without joining one; but the people who are involved are wonderful people. You can be in Greek Life and still have friends who aren't, or not be in the Greek Life and have people who are.
