    From my short time here, I can say that the food was delicious. The pizza was hot and greasy (yum!), and the hamburgers were nice and tender. They don't have many options, but what few options they have are usually palpable for even the most stubborn of palets.

    The food at the Dusty Diner is pretty good. There are always a lot of different options. Theres a salad bar, a desert table and a bunch of other tables for choices.

    The food is great. There is Subway, Chik-fel-a and a dusty diner which is like a buffet. But sometimes, you do get bored of the same food everyday.

    We just got a Chick-fil-a this semester and it is awesome! The food is a bit pricy but it's college and I'm sure we all know it isn't cheap. I have heard that the meal plans are a good deal. I myself was even thinking of getting one but probably not until next year.

    TAMIU is currently opening new restaurants for the students. The food is amazing and there could never be a complain.

    The food is good. We have Subway and Chick-fil-A is coming soon. We have a great variety of pizzas and pastas, which are delicious. Plus, the majority of the students get their daily dose of Starbucks.

    There are several places to dine on campus. We have a pizza place, subway, dusty xpress (small snacks youd find at a gas station), and a small concession area. As of today there are plans to bring a Chikfila to campus which would be a huge bonus to the school.

    In comparison to other universities, out Greek life is a very bad example of what Greek life truly is.

    I'm not involved but i heard its a lot of fun. They have barbeques and games around campus where everyone can join in (for free) and sometimes they put on a little show and dance.

    The Greek life is very limited. There are no houses and the parties you would expect are not there. Being in a Greek affiliation in this campus is just something to add to your resume.

    Don't think this like the movies, the university is new to the Greek life so it is in its growing stage but they do have a lot of thing for its members.

    Go Sigma Nu Delta! Phoenixes all the way! There are three co-eds, two sororities, and one fraternity all interested in what you have to offer! Build connections and join! The Greeks are always looking for new family!

    There are about six or seven sororities and fraternities. Everyone is very friendly and accepting as well.
