    There are lots of dining options on campus. The Christian Cafeteria has a vast variety of food options to please any picky eater! There is comfort dishes, like pizza and hamburgers, served everyday, as well as rotating pasta and international options. For anyone trying to watch what they eat, the healthy options in the cafeteria are boundless and healthier options of dressings are available as well. There are quite a few restaurants on campus and near campus as well. In the student center, there is MooYah's, Pizza Hut, and much more! There is also a Starbucks in the library! There are several meal plans to suit any financial and personal needs.

    the cafeteria has many options and fairly good cooking. the college also has an einstine bros, a starbucks, and a small grocery store by the bookstore. to provide even more dining options, uca has also built another dining area with various popular restaurants such as, a burger place, a chicken place, a sushi place, and several others. this dining area also has packaged fruit trays and salads.

    the food and dining is one of the coolest things on campus . a student has the choice of eating from the cafeteria which is buffet style or eating from the student center which consists of fast food options like chik-fil-a, pizza hut, and a sub shop place for a healthier choice. the food and dining is not limited and that's what makes it so great.

    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.

    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.
