1.The Grill has delicious food! Not only will they make you a burger to order, they have options already set out so you can grab something quick and go. The Grill is located in the Wood building across from the Student Life and Diversity Office.
2.If you are reading this, then you have discovered that Vol State has a student newspaper! The Settler is a great way for student to develop their writing skills, and participate in a fun club/class. The Settler is located in room 212 in the new Steinhauer-Rogan-Black Humanities building.
3.Its okay to take naps at school, I know it isn’t every ones style and some would rather power through long days amped up on caffeine, but there are plenty of places to sleep, benches, the library, the café, or even the floor. You’ve got to do what you’ve got to do.
4.Vol State has a basketball team, baseball team and a softball team! Show your Pioneer pride and attend one of these games before the seasons end!
5.The Vol State bookstore has more than just books! The bookstore, located in the Wood building, has yearly planners, backpacks, notebooks, phone chargers, snacks, and even an E.L.F makeup stand (ladies, you know what I’m talking about. ELF stands for eyes, lips and face).
6.The parking situation gets better after the first month, just be patient and get here early for a good spot! Don’t forget to get your parking decals for the 2016 school year!
7.If you can’t get online to entertain yourself, due to the wi-fi, you can grab a copy of The Settler! There is a newsstand in every building.
8.This list already mentioned the Grill, but everyone needs to know that the Grill has coffee. And lots of it. There are a few different types of brews, and cream and sugar are provided!
