Student Responses to Review Topic: Food And Dining

    Like previously mentioned, the MSC (where everyone eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner) closes around 6 so snacks and dinner in the dorm sometimes is a must. The food isn't always the best, but when it is you'll know because the line will be to the door.

    I don't usually eat at the dining hall, but I do really enjoy eating at the other food places on campus, especially Chic-fil-a. There isn't many options for restaurants in the surrounding area, however if you have the time and transportation, Cypress is about a 20-30 min drive from campus and there's plenty of options there.

    Omg the food isn�t always the best but, the food places like panther grill, the zone, chick-fil-a, and the bowling alley are good places to eat with your panther bucks. Now we eat in the msc but we sometimes get the same thing since thats what we know. The best food is when its soul food day and catfish friday is bomb. I never really made it to breakfast because it was to early to be walking all the way over there but the breakfast is decent.

    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.

Student Responses to Review Topic: Greek Life

    Greek Life is an important lifestyle that the students honored and lucky enough to become Greeks hold with pride. We have special events and parties held and for Greeks. Strolling is a common feat to observe during Hump Day, and Greek Night during basketball season is always a hit. You definitely want to go to at least one Greek event every semester.

    The greeks are cool they do little fundraising events and they help you study in different subjects for the fun of it. They do a lot of stuff for free and some to raise money for they�re club.

    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.
