    Meal plans are very expensive. I'm a vegetarian, and eating at the cafeteria regularly is depressing. The SC is always so busy for lunch there's almost nowhere to sit.

    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.

    There are a lot of places around campus like Starbucks and Chick-fil-a. The people are really nice.

    The food at SFA is good and there is a lot of diversity. It is not like your high school cafeteria. The chicken fried steak on Thursdays is the best! There are also places on campus like Chick-Fil-A, Starbucks and Which Which. Be prepared to eat out or in your room on weekends because the dining halls have weird hours on the weekends.

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

    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.

    Greek life is huge on campus there are 5 national panhellenic sororities and around 17 fraternities. There are also a lot of other Greek organizations that are Interfraternity or Panhellenic. They always provide something to do on the weekends and you will almost always see one of their members on campus.

    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
