    On Wednesdays, they serve soul food (friend/baked chicken, mac & cheese, yams). The food is improving and they will have their best day with good food like shrimp, curly fries, and general tsos chicken. If you are a vegetarian, you won't have much of a variety other than the salad bar, pizza, and stuffed peppers with tofu on some days.

    The food in the cafeteria isn't the best, but it definitely has improved over the years. I think breakfast is the best food they serve. From time to time cafeteria staff members hand out surveys to students asking them what they think about the food they serve and where they think the need to improve. I believe the have listened because, as I said before, the food definitely has improved over the years.

    The dining service at the school is decent. They adapt to the changing taste buds that revolve in and out of its doors. Like any other school, it does have it's specialty days i.e. Fried Chicken Wednesday's and Fish Friday's.

    The Greek Life on campus is amazing. They are all so caring and true to what they stand for. The fraternities and sororities here are great examples of what people should strive to be.
