    there are many places to eat on campus, with or without a meal plan. the university center has subway, chik-fil-a, among other food places.

    the food service could improve, but they are soon switching food servers, so it will hopefully become better shortly. they have a few restaurants on campus which are a nice change from the cafe and you don't have to drive anywhere.

    the food that they provide outside of the cafeteria is always good. the dining food is good, if you're really hungry and feel like eating just about anything. dining food is not always so tasty.

    The food served in the cafeteria has its days. Sometimes it's great sometimes not so great but on-campus restaurant are pretty good. Also, there are varieties of other restaurants close to the school that you can choose from. For meal plans, it has different rates depending if you pick bronze silver or gold.

    There is many great restaurants on campus and on the edge of the campus. I did not purchase a meal plan at the schools cafeteria. Every time i get hungry, i either visit the fast food restaurants that are in the school, my favorite Chick fil A. Or go across the street to Pie Five or Texaldelpia.

    The cafeteria is ok.They have many places to eat like Chick Fil A,and places near Vandergriff.But I would not recommend getting a meal plan,as the cafeteria food is not all that great.

    The food is great! There is a variety of options to choose from as well as a few fast food locations. Although instead of Moe's, something else would have been built, it would be perfect.

    there are many fraternities and sororities. they are all very unique. they sometime have cookouts outside the central library for students. so always carry cash with you.

    Many people enjoy the Greek life here. There isn't many incidents of Hazing or crazy college initiation tasks done. Just be careful of the parties and understand that joining a sorority or fraternity costs money. Some sororities and fraternities are very low in their costs but others are very high. On a per month or per semester basis.

    I'm not involved but they are very present on campus. They step, they dance, they campaign for charity, hold fashion shows and barbeques, and that's just what I see when I'm walking on campus. The people involed in greek Life that I've met seem very happy and committed to it.

    They offer a variety of organizations for these types of affiliations. These organizations are great to join and offer a lot of diversity and college related affairs. I plan on joining some in the near future myself.
