    Long lines for food, especially popular fast food places like Panda and Chick Fil A. I wish there was more variety/more food places. They're also open at weird times during the weekends.

    Dining-wise, it just got outsourced to a new company that is still trying to find a way to optimize how they operate, but the food quality went up as the year went on. Overall, it's not too bad, but if

    There are several good places to eat on campus, but there are not always healthy options. Also, since campus is so large, the places to dine are quite far apart. Sbisa, the only true dining hall is usually very unsatisfying.

    From what I hear, for $4,500, the meal plan isn't that great. However, not every student will have the time to prepare food at their place, so I think it's worth it. If you ever drive around College Station, you'll notice their are so many places to choose from--and it's great food. Dying to try a restaurant down there when I'm attending in the Fall that Guy Fieri from Diner, Drive-Ins, and Dives! Point is, if you can save money for the great food around, DO IT.

    The main dining hall for the North side of campus, is a little bland, if you're used to home cooked meals, but it's decent for breakfast and lunch. There's lots of choices in that hall. I like Papa Johns and Chik-fil-a being on campus and I do like that some places are open until midnight, just in case you get really hungry late at night.

    There are many fraternities and sororities to choose from. There's even a section off-campus where many of the greek houses are located.

    Plenty of Greek life to get involved in if that's what you are looking for. It's not as big as some other universities, but they are also very academic and most are very responsible.

    Greek life is very good at A&M. Besides the fact that most sororities have excellent reputations, they are also very generous with their philanthropic events and networking.

    Greek life is not big on campus less than ten percent of the students are Greek. Being in a fraternity will make you as many enemies as friends and the frats have little support from student government or alums. They also tend to have disputes with the Corp of Cadets. Sororities have a slightly larger presence on campus but even that is limited.
