    There is not much of a healthy food choice, now that the hibachi grill is taken away. All I ate was stir fry and salad. Now that the stir fry is gone, what's the point of me having a food plan. Geez! Sorry, I' m just very upset...

    The food that is provided is nice but not grand. Customer service is not enforced and often not even available. The dining halls could use some improving.

Student Responses to Review Topic: Greek Life

    Greek life at the college i attend is over hyped. Most people want to join because they are great resume builder's or because they want to 'stroll' with them. I do not hear much about community service involving Greek life and even so I am not persuaded towards Greek life because I do not see a need for it into my life. Hazing still goes on in the Greek life and I do not believe in hazing, especially physically touching the applicants.

    Greek life is fun but serious on campus. The key to enjoying greek life at Southern is RESPECT. If you give it, then you will get it. Simple as that.

    One of the best things about Southern University is its Greek life. There are the social Greek as well as the professional Greek organizations. Theses organizations support and help student throughout their college careers.
