    Cafeteria food was better than high school food itself,great choices to take advantage of and indulge in. Pizza,Chinese,Mexican,even have your own pasta dish made! Didn't agree with the times but the food made that fade away. Great seatings,comfortable and simple. Also,Chick-Fil-A was a plus,worth the walk and quick wait.

    There's some good options on campus and off campus. Nothing beats a home made meal, but while you're here they do a really good job of making sure you are well fed. They also have the option of a pizza bar and coming soon an on campus Chick Fil A!

    With the Eagles Nest Cafe and the cafeteria, there are not alot of choices, but you can usually find something good to eat.

    They have quite a range of food, but they still lack a solid gluten-free or vegan section. Sometimes the food will be really bad and other times they get creative and it will be excellent. It's a hit or miss with any dining service. If all else fails, go to The Eagle's Nest (which is like a fast food grill).

    There are only two sororities. One that is more involved in campus social activities and the other that is involved in community service and mission work.
