    I have never eaten in the caf, or been inside, (commuter problems) but I know that sometimes the food is great while sometimes it is not so great.

    Food is an important part of life, it's more than a need it's something you enjoy. On campus we have a café they makes the greatest deserts! and the cooks that work there are super sweet, they care about you and are more than happy to make for you what you like and how you like it. Next to the café we have Chick-fil-a and who doesn't love chicken! (Side note they don't except gift cards). Also on campus we have Starbucks conveniently placed inside the library. Outside in the middle of campus we have 'the pod' which is our own little corner store with things from junk food to soup, they even have milk shakes! Next to the pod we have Subway, Eat fresh! Around our campus (a mile or less) we have Dairy queen, Mc Donald's, Bill Millers, churches and a Mexican restaurant.

    There are a number of places to eat at St. Mary's. Of course there is a Starbucks in the library for the late night study sessions. There is also a school store with various every day necessities and cheaper snacks and coffee for those on a college student budget. There is also the campus Cafe, which offers a reasonably priced and tasting buffet as well! The campus Cafe has so many different types of food to choose from. Nearby the campus are so many more restaurants to choose from as well.

    The food is pretty good for cafeteria food, but most people don't eat there. There is also a Subway, Chick-Fil-A, and Starbucks on campus. If you don't want to eat on campus then there are plenty of places just down the street that can satisfy anybody's craving.

    Food sucks. Play it safe and either make your own or get Subway or Chick-fil-A. I've gotten food poisoning twice from there from the same thing even after I complained.

    Our Greek life isn't what most people think. Our Greek life just like our community cares about your future and only permits student's to join after sophomore year and only if you have a 2.1 GPA and higher. The best thing is you make such great friends with so many common interest grades aren't a problem because your friends want you to succeed.

    If you are interested in Greek life then St. Mary's has a fraternity or sorority that fits your interests. Every Friday all the Greek life clubs hangout in the Quad and show their letters off.

    We have sororities and fraternities on campus, but no Greek houses on campus. Sigma Beta Chi has a house that the boys rent out every semester, but that's about it. At times, it's easy to tell who is in Greek life and who is not. We have Greek Week in October and the fraternities and sororities have fundraisers during the week and during quad on Fridays.

    Greek Life is a huge part of St. Mary's. The chapters on campus are not the stereotypical fraternities/ sororities. Being a part of Greek life promotes personal growth and helps you become the best person you can be while gaining meaningful friendships for life.
