    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.

    The campus itself doesn't have many options for meals, but there are vending machines offering uniques beverages and foods, and the city has tons of great food nearby.

    The food in the commons offer little variety and everything ends up tasting the same - flavorless. On campus, there are also options such as Subway, asian food, burgers, pizza, etc., but the overall quality is pretty poor and the prices are high. If you live in the residence halls, you are required to get a meal plan as there are no kitchens.

    There are a lot of choices. Some of it is better than others. I am on one of the middle sized meal plans and it was more than enough for me.

    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.

    We have a couple sororities and fraternities, but they don't have housing. Despite that I have heard good things about them.

    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.

    There is not much greek life because UAA Mat-su is a small campus that does not have dorm buildings.
