    On campus options for food are lacking (both in Winter Haven & Lakeland). However, there are plenty of places to grab lunch near campus. Lakeland campus is close to Wawa, Wendys, Taco Bell, and McDonalds. The Winter Haven Campus is a five minute drive from anything downtown offers.

    On campus there's only really one place to get hot food and it's really not that good but off campus theres tons of stuff thats only about 5-10 minutes away.

    The cafeteria offers top notch meals varying between Mexican, Italian and American cuisines. They even offer special prices to Collegiate students who are apart of the early enrollment between High School and College-level.

    Phi Theta Kapa is the only Greek related club that I've heard of at Polk State, although there may be more. There are no fraternities or sororities.

    Since there are no dorms and it isn't a university, there are no sororities. Most of the people that come to Polk State College come to get their two year degree and then transfer to a bigger school.
