    Tech has outsourced their dinning services to a company that no one is really fond of. Thankfully, the local community offers special discounts in the various eateries and I am able to find yummy food all around town!

    For me personally I think that the food isn't really that great and I would recommend getting the smallest meal plan you can if you have to get one and just get food for your dorm. That will probably be the healthiest and cheapest option.

    The Cafe is very good, I however wish they had more options that were quicker. Swoops is always packed on lunch hour, avoid.

    Food and dining at Tech is improving. The meal plan for students is flexible, and a student can exchange a meal at any food establishment on campus with only one exception:, the library's small cafe. In addition to meal exchanges, students also have Flex Dollars which can be spent at any location. These act as a way to purchase food outside of the three meal exchanges you are permitted a day. The dining options on campus are expanding. In addition to the main cafeteria on campus which has a buffet style serving option, different fast food restaurants are either opened or opening, including Papa Johns and Chick-Fil-A. Off campus options are varied yet delicious, and typically honor student discounts.

    Normal college campus food. The main dining hall is a little dated by clean and functional. The ladies running the cash register seem to be moms to many of the students.

    I use the unlimited meal plan in the cafeteria and the breakfast and dinner servings are the best of the day. When you swipe in the cafeteria you can get how ever much you like. There are also other alternatives. You can choose to get Starbucks or eat at a local business that is on campus.

    The food here is actually really good! There is a variety of options at every meal. From burgers, to a salad bar, to pizza, to a pasta bar...you name it and they have it. Not to mention the fast food chains such as Backyard Burger, Papa Johns, and more located in buildings around campus.

    Tennessee Tech has a fair amount of options to choose from as far as food. They have a few convenience stores around campus so you can just pick up some snacks for your dorm or on the way to class. There is the caf as well which honestly doesn't always serve up the most delicious food. Then there is Swoops or The Grill as older students call is, which has four different types of food choices. One changes every year but while I was attending there was a sandwich area, like Subway, a burger place, a wing place, and a salad/noodle place. The last place you can go eat on campus is the Perch which has a Grill Nation and a Papa Johns pizza. Oh, and there is a cafe in the library as well with soups, salads, fruits, and sandwiches, but I feel its a bit pricey. With all these great options why am I giving food and dining 3 stars? Because the main area, the caf, just doesn't serve good food, and it will cost you an arm and a leg to get come healthy food on campus. There is a grocery store, IGA, within walking distance however!

    Some cool fraternities and sororities here at Tech. However, don't jump into Greek Life. You really need to access your specific situation and evaluate whether or not you can balance everything that Greek life throws at you with school work on top.

    Greek life is very noticeable on campus, and is a strong presence on campus. Rush week is very big, and many students are personally invited by members of the Greek life programs to enjoy different rush activities.

    Greek life is great! I recommend every student to be a part of the Greek life. Being a part of something that is bigger than yourself humbles you, which can lead to self satisfaction and better grades. When one joins the Greek life, they are introduced to a lot of new people that are glad to help you with your homework and study. They also value education. They tell you to go to class and finish homework before going to meetings or activities.

    There are four sororities in addition to a service sorority. These are great if you want to get involved with that type of organization. There are also many fraternities available for male students.
