    The Dining Hall is at a really good location on campus, food is sub-par but they always have special events and serve really good food during this too.

    The food in the dining hall is enough to survive. It might be good at orientation, but it is not like that everyday. I can count on one hand how many times I actually said the dining hall food was good that day.

    The dining hall at Tarleton is sometimes hit or miss. Timing can be important when it comes to getting the best food. Some days the food is brilliant and some days it isn't edible. The breakfast and desserts prepared by the dining hall are the best. Their desserts are amazing!

    The cafeteria food is actually really good but is kind of repetitive if you go there for every meal. There is a chik-fila on campus though.

    The Dining hall has a million options. We also have access to a Chick-Fil-A and service is great! They also take your opinions into consideration to make their food better if you have any complaints.

    The food in the dining hall is always great, There's always different options of food to choose from. There's also a Chic Fil A with hot and ready items, as well as a campus store with snacks to eat on the go or store for your room.

    Could definitely be better but could also be worse. Dining Hall options are decent. But there are plenty of local places to choose from.

    The dining hall is open every day, Monday-Sunday. Buffet style, to where you can grab as much food as you would like at a time. There are close fast food restaurants as well, and churches open to giving free meals daily. You will not run out on food.

    We have very active Greek life. Although I am not a member of Greek life I am amazed daily at the amount of activities the Greek girls and guys do on campus.

    The Greek community has become one of the largest and most active groups on campus with numerous opportunities to hold influential leadership positions. Collectively, thousands of community service hours and thousands of dollars are contributed annually to local and national philanthropy projects.

    Not really diverse but there are a lot of options to choose from if interested, they just have a lot of similarities to each other. Very popular

    One of the greatest things about Greek Life on Tarleton's campus is that it is completely anti-hazing. There is no need to worry about crazy initiations, because they do not happen. I myself have joined a fraternity, and can say first hand that no ridiculous things happen, so please join. It is such a great way to be involved.
