    Palms Dining Hall is the main dining hall and has a decent variety of food. They also can cater to any dietary requirements you may have. Hopper Hall has a dining hall as well although it's only open limited hours and offers a smaller variety of choices. There's also several other places to eat spread out around campus. So you should have no trouble finding something to eat.

    Valdosta campus has a wide variety of dining options. Palms and Hopper Dining Halls are well worth the short walk when you get hungry. The dining halls have many options that vary from day to day. If the dining halls don't satisfy you, there are restaurants around campus to choose from.

    The food on campus, not counting the dining halls, is pretty tasty, the downfalls though are the prices and the hours during breaks. If you live on campus, the hours aren't that bad of a problem, but if you live off campus or in Centennial, it is a little off putting to travel to campus just for some Chik-Fil-A or Nathan's.

    The first week the food was really good but that soon changed. The dining halls close too early and the other restaurants on campus have odd hours. I eat the same things over and over and I'm not a picky eater. I've gotten sick from eating at the dining halls on more than one occasion.

    Two dining halls. Palms is open from 7am-8pm on weekdays and Hopper is open from 5pm-10pm Monday-Thursday. There's Moe's, Papa John's, Pink Berry, Chickfila, Nathan's, Starbucks, and Baja Flats. Dining Hall food is alright...Hopper is better than Palms to me.

    The food here is really good but if your planning on staying on campus make sure you get a decent amount of meal tickets because eating at moes, chick-fliet, and the other few sounds good at first but trust me your going to be missing home cooking really soon and the closest your going to get to that id Palms and hopper dining hall. Speaking of which, Hopper might look cooler, but palms tastes better hands down, just saying and yes the food in eat is different.

    The food at both the dining halls is good, but it gets old after a few months of the same things being served.

    The dining is pretty basic. Nothing extravagant, but something to get you by. On the weekends they close early so get there on time or prepare to spend money!! The blazer bucks run fairly smoothly. They should last the semester depending on how much junk you spend it on.

    There are 6 sororities and 6 fraternities here at Valdosta State. The frats have houses, but an old law concerning brothels in Valdosta keeps the sorority sisters from living together.

    Valdosta State is very Greek oriented. There is a tight friendship between all sisters and brothers. The organizations frequently come together and plan stepshows, stroll offs and cookouts.
