Cleveland, MS is a small town compared to other college towns. Dining in Cleveland is great. From mexican to chinese to good home southern cooking, Cleveland has it all. It has a wide variety to pick from whether you want quick and cheap or fancy and expensive. Most restaurants offer student discounts and one is able to use their Okra-Green Kard at some places as well. My favorite restaurant to eat at in Cleveland is The Warehouse. The building is a remodeled old warehouse with tall ceilings and a down home feel to it. It is decorated with local artists artwork as well as old street and coca-cola signs. The food is amazing and the cost is average. I, personally, recommend the pan-seared parmesan crusted catfish--this is the Mississippi Delta and Cleveland is not far from the US Farm Raised Catfish Capital of the World, Belzoni. So of course, I stick to my roots and recommend the Catfish! Overall I do not think one could be dis-satisfied with the places you get to choose from in Cleveland.

I am on the softball team and our fan support is awesome! Students and the community support all of our sports and the community is so good to all athletes. All of our facilities are very modern and safe. As an athlete, I am accountable to the Athletic Department and the University as a whole for my actions on and off the field. It is stressed that I am a representative of the university and this makes me proud to be a part of such a quality organization.

Southern Convenience – Restaurants in Cleveland, MS are the most unique you will ever see. There are places such as Airport Grocery, which have a very cool antique look and the food is great. There are also other southern-style restaurants with a upscale flare such as A la Carte restaurant. It has a gift shop within the restaurant and the atmosphere represents the hospitable spirit that is the South!
