  • Dorm rooms are welcoming and clean and give you a home feeling. Every dorm building is in walking distance to every campus building. There is always someone in residence life…

  • I am accepted here and planning to attend soon

    Good but It can be better if a student can get food of his own country/region.

    There are plenty of food options at southern. Most of our food is served at the student center, where there is a pizza spot, salad spot, smoothie spot, fried chicken spot, etc. The student center also has a Dunkin Doughnuts while a brand new Starbucks can be found in the library. The there option for food here is Con hall which is like our school's buffet. The food here is pretty good, you just have to switch up the routine of eating from the same places every once in a while, because students tend to complain about eating the same thing, but I have yet to hear anything bad about the way the food tastes.

    Conn (dining hall): Pretty much the same food all the time, but there's always the option to make a salad or sandwich. Student center: Nathans - basically all fast food...Breakfast sandwich's, burgers, fries Mondo's- Soup & Sandwich some people think it's better than subway others don't like it at all 2mato- Italian food...Pizza, pasta, stuffed breads Sono- Mexican food Food gets boring after a while. But there's a link on the schools website for places that will deliver. Most people don't complain about the food

    I have only been into the dining hall once but was disappointed in the food options. The food served in other parts of campus is much better.

    Conn hall is the place where we dine. Student that live on campus get unlimeted access to conn. Its basicallly a buffet style, Its great. then there is the student center that have different vendors inside that allow you to order food and bring back to your dorm. The also have the student market which is filled with all kinds of goodies and things essential to cooking if you are uperclassman who usually cook more.

    Southern not only has a dining hall but also a student center for eating and variety. I have to be honest the dining hall is not my favorite place to eat. However, there are a great variety of foods there to choose form. The student center is like a food court at the mall.

    The Greeks on campus are very friendly and always looking to recruit people for their fraternity/sorority. They also host a good number of parties throughout the semesters as well as other fun events that are held either at night or during the day.

    There a several fraternities and sororities to join on campus but the major ones to join are the Tau Kappa Epsilon {T.K.E.) fraternity or the Zeta Phi Beta sorority. If you get lucky, you'll meet the gold and purple Omega Psi Phi Q-Dogs on campus and witness their stepping performance,
