    The food provided are good tasting and very filling, however, it's not the most healthy and the university does not have food variety.

    With Grille Works and Chick-fil-A being added this past year, the dining on SAU's campus has improved greatly. Students have more options now than ever before. The cafeteria is not fine dining by any means but with the new chef, there seems to be some improvement in the food quality. SAU has really been paying attention to what the students have to say about their dining experiences on campus.

    Though I am not participating in Greek Life myself, those that I am friends that have participated love it. You gain friends and family for life. SAU is very involved in Greek Life and doesn't allow unlawful activities to happen.
