    UCA has many different options for food and dining. The cafeteria has many different varieties such as a sandwich bar, pasta bar, pizza, and they also have a vegetarian option. In the student center they have different restaurants to choose from such as Quiznos, Pizza Hut, and Chick Fil A. Overall the food is very good and here are many options for everyone.

    The food is not the best. The food in the Student Center is really good, even though it gets boring after a while. The food in the cafeteria is not very good at all. Most of the time, I leave hungry.

    Some people complain about the food, but it's not too shabby. The student center has choice places like: mooyah's, chik-cil-a, pizza hut. and quiznozs. If you REALLY like burgers, pizza, and hot dogs that's good, because they serve them every day. You can still choose different food items at different food stations.

    I really enjoy eating more at the Student Center than the Cafeteria. That may change after a while but overall the food is decent. You can get creative and buy some supplemental items to make their selection even better.

    I dislike the cafeteria because of the scarce selection. The student center has awesome food places like pizza hut, sushi, and quiznos. The dinning halls are great for space. There is always plenty of places to sit an plenty of space for big groups to meet at.

    There's the Christian Cafeteria and the Student Center. Never been in the cafeteria, but I've heard mixed reviews about it. Some say it's good on occasion and other say it's pretty good the entire time. The Student Center has a small convenience store then a food court, which can be quite crowded at certain times.

    Food isn't awful on campus, but you will grow tired of it, especially in the cafeteria. The dorms all have kitchens so it wouldn't be too difficult to concoct a homemade meal occasionally.

    The cafeteria is not so great. It is okay for the first couple of weeks, but as the year(s) go on and you learn what is good and what is bad in the caf, you figure out the good is mediocre and the bad can be just awful. The stir-fry line is okay. The omelet line is usually good. The panini maker usually makes a good sandwich. The salad bar is usually not so fresh. The homemade line is usually bad. Finally there is the fried line: it tastes pretty good, but your body will hate you for it.

    Not involved myself but my current roommate is pledging and it appears to be quite time consuming. Just not for me but I know it's great for a lot of students

    Greek life is not an end-all at UCA. It is fantastic if you are involved, but if you are not, you don't feel like you are missing out. Like in most schools, there are sororities/fraternities who like each other and sororities/fraternities who don't like each other. There is not a lot of out-right hostility toward each other, but greek unity is slim.

    From NPHCs to Christian fraternities like Brothers Under Christ (BYX). UCA has no shortage of Greek life. We are even in the process of building a Greek Village to house all the fraternities and sororities!

    There are numerous sororities and fraternities throughout campus. The Greeks have anti- hazing policies, and they have events on campus made for your enjoyment. Lastly, from living on campus, I noticed how well the Greeks respect others and themselves.
