    I haven't eaten outside of Subway on campus. However, I have heard good things about the cafeteria. They also provide a lot of vending machine with good snacks, as well as a free snack cart that goes around campus.

    UAA is located smack in the middle of Anchorage, so it is in a central location for various food and dining experiences, that are affordable even for the student considering selling their own kidney to pay for tuition! The cafeteria food isn't half bad, either.

    There are several food stations throughout campus, the options are Chinese, Subway, sushi, or a cafe that sells coffee, sandwiches, and bagels. So there are many options of what you can eat at this university. Plus they have a snack bar if you feel the urge to eat some chips or crackers.

    Sororities are very friendly and they go out of their way to building charities and bringing awareness to every cause they support. I am not apart of any sororities nor do I plan on being one in the future but they go around Student Union and do bake sales for charity all the time.

    There are a few greek organizations now. 25 years ago there was nothing at all. It's just starting out in the last few years and it would be a great opportunity to help them grow.
