Student Responses to Review Topic: Food And Dining

    The way that the whole meal plan is set up can be confusing. Here there is a set amount of swipes that you can have for the cafeteria. The rest of the places that you can eat you either have to use money or your declining balance. While the cafe in the food suffices, some of the time, there is a lot of grease and not a lot of variety in the cafeteria. But the other places to eat and get a quick refreshment, a nice morning coffee, are very good. Each one has good, quick, and quality service.

    The cafe has great hours for students, and a variety of healthy choices. The campus also has a coffee shop in Elva Jones Computer Science Building , a bagel shop in Hill Hall, Popeyes, Subway, a Pizza place, a Burger Joint, and three small stores ALL located on campus.

    When it comes to the food, you have to remember that it's not a home-cooked meal... its cafe food.. The food is decent, personally I believe that the best meal is breakfast. The most popular dining day is Wednesday.. also known as Fried Chicken Wednesdays. we also have Fish Fridays.

    Greek life is great with the exception of one sorority from the Divine 9 being off the yard (Delta Sigma Theta). They always do events and connect with the students.

    Greek Life boasts 8 of 9 Divine 9 organizations but a slew of CIGO organizations as well. As a small campus we are often more unified than larger campuses. We also have many Greek members who are in key positions within the school that host programs beneficial to the campus.
