    The food and dining is fine. There are varieties of food types available but it is not always healthy.

    The MSC is where all underclassmen living on campus eat. It's cafeteria styled and offers an endless supply of food. The only problem with the MSC food is the options eventually begin to repeat themselves and the food begins to lose it's flavor. If you become sick of the MSC food you can go to the Chick-fil-a next door, or the Panther Grill which offers higher quality food for a price. As far as restaurants go, students order from a student ran company, Brookcake, Pizza Hut, Domino's, or a Chinese restaurant.

    The food here is an experience in itself. It makes you feel like you're at home and a family member is cooking for you. Definitely a perk for people that miss home-cooked meals.

    Food choices on campus are limited, available options are the MSC Dining Center (which has a very rude staff), the Panther Grill and Chick-Fila-A, and the Zone. Sadly, if you're looking for something healthy to eat, you won't find it on campus.

    There are multiple sororities or fraternities. If you are interested in Greek life, you will find at least one Greek who has the same vision as you. However you are not able to join until your second year attending Prairie View.

    Greeks are the most visible organizations on campus, the fraternities and sororities, the host of the weekly event called Hump Day, featuring a each greek organization's stroll. The Greeks also take the spotlight at the step-off show during homecoming week, and throw the most interesting and fun parties.

    Prairie View A& M University Greeks for both Fraternities and Sororities are outstanding. Every Wednesday, during Hump Day, on the yard all the Greeks come out and do their stroll. The event every Wednesday is very exemplary and continues to get better and better!
