    Austin College has 5 day/ 7 day meal plan mandatory for all incoming freshman. The food is not too bad in quality. The school recently renovated the cafeteria with new furnishing. There is a pasta, burger, dessert, fruit, soup and salad section.

    Students will definitely miss home cooked meals and going out to their favorite home town restaurants but our dining services does a great job at making many options available. Each meal served as plenty of options for everyone and they also have a suggestion box that they regularly check and make changes based on the students suggestions!

    The cafe here has some good food overall. Although it does have it days in which it seems a little crappy

    A buffet style cafeteria that tries to provide homestyle meals form various cultures was a nice idea. Too bad the food kind of sucks. The best items on the menu though, Pizza and cookies. There's one lady on the staff line who needs an attitude check too.

    Unfortunately, the dining at this school is less than favorable to most. They are constantly working to improve the fare and in time it may actually improve. If you're vegan or vegetarian your options are limited.

    The food is kind of awful and horribly overpriced, but they are supposedly changing it so that it is better this year.

    There are several fraternities and sororities on campus and one national service fraternity that specializes in community service around our school and the city of Sherman. Many students find a fraternity or sorority that fits their personality and absolutely love it.

    Greek life is a big part of Austin College. Me myself, I'm part of Chi Delta Eta. The Greek life will treat you like family and will welcome anyone who they encounter.

    There is great emphasis on Greek Life at this school; which is something that isn't very well known outside of the students who actually go here. Even if you're not interested in this type of thing it is still a wonderful school and there are many other ways to get involved on campus.

    I didn't join a sorority, but I have lots of friends that did. There isn't an awkward tension between Greeks and non-Greeks like there is at some larger schools. Our Greeks are very blended with everyone else and there isn't a lot of pressure to join a sorority/fraternity.
