  • I stayed in a dorm my freshman year and it helps you meet many people which is a plus for a campus as large as A&M. Networking and friendships happen…

    Sbisa is the big dining hall on campus and has good food, and is cafeteria style but with many different options. They have the healthy side, with salads and grilled chicken and the like. And then there are options such as pizza, chicken fingers, etc. Whatever you are fancying at the moment! In the Commons area (attached to the commons dorms) there is pasta, Chick-fil-a, salads, and more.

    It is really convenient to have a meal plan while living on campus or at least have dining dollars if you live off campus. The food is okay on campus but the facilities could be better maintained and have more variety. Especially if you live on campus you will get tired of eating the same food all the time.

    There are a lot of options because campus is so big. If you plan to be on campus most of the day I suggest purchasing a meal plan.

    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.
