    There is a relatively good selection of restaurants for on campus dining, but the dining hall food isn't good at all. The majority of the staff more often than not are rude and short towards students and generally always look pissed off. The food is sub par as well.

    The food at SFA is really good and there is a lot of diversity. It is not like your high school cafeteria. There are also places on campus like Chick-Fil-A and Which Which.

    If your meal plan doesn't cover all of your edible needs then there are plenty of food place nearby that are amazing.

    The diversity of food at SFA is wonderful. Everyday you can find something different but you can find similar foods as well, when you like to eat the same things regularly. SFA offers many foods for many different people during all meals, such as vegetarian and vegan options, protein-high or low options, low calorie options, etc.

    At first, the food is great. After a few weeks you can notice the food is the same every time and it starts to taste like nothing. Also, you don't get full quickly with the food. But good thing it's buffet style so you can eat all you want until you are full. Best meal at SFA is the Chicken fried steak.

    Greek Life is very prevelent at SFA, it is one of the best ways to get involved and to make friends, but it isn't a must if Greek life isn't your thing.

    I didn't plan to join any sororities, but the sorority sisters contacted me from a few sororityies and they were all very friendly, helpful, and understanding. Who knows, I might become a sister before I graduate.

    Greek life is a very big thing to do at SFA. Greek life has a lot of activities to keep you busy during your free time. There are proximately 15 IFC fraternities and 5 panhellenic sororities.

    Greek life is noticeable on campus. There are a lot of national sororities and fraternities as well as some only found at SFA. People aren't pressured into rushing at SFA though like at some colleges.

    The sororities and fraternities are actually really nice. They have parties pretty much every weekend and they let freshman come. I actually regret not joining one.

    If you're a girl: You have to be skinny and wear makeup all the time to be accepted. You also have a dresscode of short shorts and their specific shirts. Dresses on special occasions. If you're a guy: I don't really know
