    The food for me who is a veggie person sucks because its like they don't have any thing good for us other than the salad bar but from what i have hear from others who eat the food on a regular the food is good that it keeps them coming back.

    In the genesis of my attendence, the dining was nothing to brag about, but in just a year and a half, the transformation is apparent. The main dining hall has improved at least 3 fold, and the upgrading of side dining has made eating at BCU something to honestly look forward to.

    We have a bunch of different areas where you can eat, even a vegetarian section. I love that the sections are separated and well what else can you say , its all you can eat.

    There are a large amount of great food spots surrounding BCU but you would have to have a car to get to most unless you like walking far distances.. Bethune grill is pretty good though, right down the street. There is also the WOW in the CCE, the chicken tenders aren't bad. The cafeteria is okay too especially if you have a meal plan.

  • I am researching this school and have visited the campus

    The divine 9 is definitely prevalent on campus. My tour guide was a member of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Inc. He basically explained that it brings forth many opportunities such as networking. Research more about it for yourself to see if you would be interested. As for me when I do start undergrad greek life is definitely something I would like to partake in.
