    I don't know much about the meal plan, besides there being one. But the food is pretty good, and there are many different choices in their cafeteria, ranging from a big salad bar, to pasta, to pizza, to special grilled items. They even box up lunch items for sale outside the cafeteria. They serve Starbucks coffee, which is really nice, and there is also a Subway and Taco Bell on campus. Finally, there is a great BBQ place across the street; it's pricey, but well worth it.

    The dining services are about what you expect at any college. I suggest if you are a picky eater than you should bring plenty of your favorites to have at hand.

    The farternites and sortities don't really present themselves that much on campus mainly only at parties, or unless you personally know they are apart of an organization.

    I am apart of an organization that was just started last semester and I am a founding father of it. Everyone in the organization is like a big family, we all look out for each other.
