    In the Caf they have a section that has pizza, hamburgers, hot dogs, and fries every day, and a section that has whatever is choice cooked that day, Wednesdays being fried chicken. The food is hit and miss, merely depending on how well your stomach takes it that day. There is also a salad bar and an Asian foods bar that cooks something including rice or pasta every day. The mornings will always be eggs, hashbrowns, biscuits and gravy, with sausage or bacon.

    They have a great dining hall filled with extensive choices from fresh fruit, wide variety salad bar, pizza, deli, and a real food section set of selections to choose from, it's great!

    The cafeteria is somewhere everyone can go to hangout, relax, and have a bite to eat. The procedure to get in is simple. Scan your I.D. at the front desk and grab a plate to get your food. A large variety and no limits make finding something good easy.

    There aren't many restaurants in the city. However, you are allowed to use your tiger bucks card which comes in handy when you don't have any cash. There are three fast food restaurants (Sonic, Burger King, and Hardee's). There are about five or six dine- in (take-out is available) restaurants. I've never heard of these restaurants until I went to this college. The most popular ones are Dandy Don's, and Diamond Jim's. Both are very good.

    Livingston is a small town, and there aren't many food options. There are some great mom and pop places in town, but the cafeteria on campus is okay. Improvements are planned to be made to on-campus dining summer of 2012.

    The Caf, short for cafeteria, is the main eating quarters on campus. The Caf offers buffet style eating, and allows students to have several choices of food. Inside the building there is a sub shop, Tiger Alley. In the library resides the school's very own coffee shop, Java City. Javalanches are quite famous around here.

    Three fraternities, three sororities, and I'm not sure how many D9 frats. Delta chi is mostly band guys and science majors who also benefit to the college the most with community services and fundraisers. TKE are on the edge of getting kicked off campus because they give nothing to the table and can barely recruit members. Sigma Pi is the fraternity you'd like to join if you enjoy being humiliated, hazed, and enjoy getting away with dealing drugs by dropping your members and not reporting to nationals.

    The Greeks on this campus suck compared to those on a bigger campus. The President of the college doesn't even like Greeks. He doesn't see the purpose of a sorority or fraternity.

    Greek life is not as big at UWA because it is a smaller school. The frats and sororities are more a social group on campus and they don't do a lot of extra like at other universities.

    UWA is home to several Greek organizations. The Greeks are nearly always taking interest in new members. UWA is home to the following fraternities and soroities: Alpha Kappa Alpha, Delta Sigma Theta, Zeta Phi Beta, Phi Mu, Alpha Sigma Tau, Omega Phi Psi, Phi Beta Sigma, Alpha Phi Alpha, Delta Chi, and a few others.

    I am in a sorority called Phi Mu and have the best sisters that anyone could ask for. Being in a sorority has given me many opportunities and allowed me to become best friends with some great girls.
