    You have the option to choose from a meal plan which can let you go an infinite number of times to the main restaurant called TAOS. TAOS offers a variety of foods, and one of the best things is they have a special menu for vegans/vegetarians. They also have days where they have food themes from other places. One of the downsides, however, would have to be that they close pretty early, so if you wanted food at around 10:00 p.m. you would have to go to the food court, which doesn't have too much to offer in my opinion.

    If you've never had a breakfast burrito from Blake's Lotaburger, you sir, have not lived yet. All the places on campus have a variety of foods to choose from and they're all tasty. Plus, the people are super friendly!

    There is such a large variety of places to eat at on campus and many more nearby. My favorite place is the Taos Restaurant which is like a buffet with food that is actually edible. In addition to that there is also a food court on campus with multiple different types of food that are conveniently close together.

    Kind of expensive, but compared to other universities very affordable. Good options around campus, and the cafeteria has just been redone and is a wonderful buffet-style place to eat with lots of options (healthy, non-healthy, vegetarian, vegan, you name it).

    Food and Dining is great. There are a ton of places to eat at NMSU. There are so many food courts. You get a wide range of food to choose from like American all the way to Chinese.

    The local cafeteria Taos is a great place to eat. Not only is it a buffet but they have plenty of options for you to choose from. There are also plenty of shops around the campus that are great to eat at Zeffiros is a popular pizza place that i love to go to.

    Lots of options and new places are opening often! There are quite a few new places within walking distance (i.e. 10 minute walk).

    The Taos restaurant offer a wide variety of food or a reasonable price (around $8 per entrance). We also have some cafeterias and fast-food restaurants.

    While I do not know a lot about Greek Life I do know that they are quite active on campus because they've been trusted with a very old tradition.

    Greek Life is connected with the Phi Sigma Pi Fraternity/Sorority. If you want to be involved in this you have to have a 3.0 G.P.A or every semester. The president will email you and ask you to join.

    There are numerous Fraternities and Sororities at NMSU. A relatively new housing complex for greek organizations keeps the greek community tightly knit. Some still do the traditional houses as well on and around campus.
