    The cafeteria staff does an excellent job at Tennessee Wesleyan to make sure that the students are getting food they enjoy eating. There is a suggestion box open at all times and they actually use the suggestions made. Hot meals are served three times a day and the sandwich bar and cereal bars are open all day. They provide many options daily. There is also J. Wesley's grill in the Student Activities Center that serves burgers, chicken sandwiches, chicken tenders and several other things daily.

    The food in the cafeteria is generally pretty good. It definitely isn't a five-star dining experience, but it is satisfactory. The cafeteria tries to maintain variety in their everyday menu. There is also a local fast food restaurant on campus called J. Wesley's. Every semester, each student with a meal plan gets $50 put on their ID card. This money can go to purchasing meals, smoothies, or various other things from J. Wesley's. The food there is really good. It is comparable to Hardee's or Burger King. Students work at J. Wesley's and in the cafeteria, which makes eating at these places seem more familiar.

    The food is pretty good and for a reasonable price. You can eat as much as you want as many times a day as you wish. Everything including the workers is clean and sterile. You will love the cafeteria if you have a sweet tooth. There is also salad bar for those who do not eat meat.

    Fresh coffee in the library at all times, an on campus grill and juice bar and a full functioning mess hall. The cafeteria caters professionally and the food is great, breakfast is made to order fresh every day with local produce including homemade waffles ommlets and french toast. Lunches are also great with sandwiches, soups and a meat each day as well as pizza, fries, and other stations open daily, dinner is full with appitizers, entrees and dessert, best of all, these meals are completely affordable and open to the public.

    There are two sororities and one fraternity. The national sorority is Sigma Kappa. The local is Alpha Xi Gamma. The fraternity is a local called Delta Zeta Phi. All of them do exceptional volunteer work in the community.

    Greek life isn't huge but we do have 2 sororities and one fraternity. Most sports teams function as our Greek families.
