    The foods at the Cafeteria makes me feel like we are guinea pigs. I haven't been there again after I throw up their food at a library in the restroom stall where one of my friends heard me puking my heart out all the way from where we were sitting to study as usual. Either bring home food or eat off campus.

    The food is ok. It's New Orleans and their known for their good food! I'm vegan so it's pretty hard for me to get everything I need but they always help me out and substitute things that I cant eat.

    The food at Xavier gets better every year but they still lack variety. You can expect to always have red beans for lunch on Mondays and catfish for lunch on Fridays. Throughout the week it just becomes a guessing game and to be honest you may not like what they offer. But please don't be tempted by the fast food around campus because you will definitely gain the Freshman 15.

    Breakfast, lunch, and brunch are always satisfying. Dinner on the other hand, can be inconsistent. Sometimes there will be nothing satisfying to eat in the cafe; especially on weekends.

    The food isn't always good, but sometimes there are good food choices. You are always able to get pizza, hamburgers, or go to the salad bar. There are also vegetarian food items available.

    Food provided by the cafeteria can be variable. On some days the food is absolutely amazing but on other days it is not so great. On the other hand there is most always a variety of choices for you to choose from. So if one thing does not taste so good, you can try your luck with something else. Outside of the school, there are several fast food restaurants that are within walking distance of the school campus. There are also many restaurants around the city of New Orleans. They are not walking distance but can be perfect to get a taste of New Orleans culture.

    Has a nice cafeteria buffet-serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Dinner's specials sometimes are baked chicken or fried catfish. ($7 for buffet) Also has a cafe that sells typical cafe foods and drinks,such as salads, tuna sandwiches, fruit cups, coffee, but also sells po-boys. During lunch, you can order a po-boy, and they'll make it fresh and ready in a few minutes!

    The Greek life on Campus is rather boring; due to the fact that only four of the nine were present at Xavier's campus this year.

    Since Xavier is an HBCU we do have the Divine Nine African American Fraternities and Sororities. if pledging is something that you are highly interested in, look to see if they are on probation or suspension and for how long.

    My knowledge is extremely limited on the Greek Life at Xavier but one thing I have heard from upper classmen is that it can be quite expensive. However, do not let this discourage you from participating, for it can be the experience of a lifetime.

    Greek Life is available, but not a huge thing on because it is such a small population that attends Xavier. We try to make it as fun and known that the greeks are around and near.

    I am a member of the Gamma Alpha Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. The Greek Life is not as exciting as I would like because we don't have very many active organizations.

    The Greeks always are throwing some kind of event, and they are all full of likeable people, so the events are pretty cool.
