    Hein has some of the best food I've ever eaten in a school dining hall. There's such a variety of choices that it never feels like they're repeating menus over and over. Even the pizza is gourmet! There's also Lucky's, which sells amazing wraps and mozzarella sticks. Plus a Starbucks for those who need their caffeine intake.

    Hein has pretty good food, but not the greatest. I always look forward to home cooked meals when I get home. The best meal is breakfast, and they always have better food when a school is visiting. Lucky's has good food, but it really isn't worth the dining dollars, especially if you like Starbucks. The Starbucks on campus has good food and you get a discount if you use dining dollars.

    The chef and his staff are always thinking of new entrees to keep things interesting in the dining hall.

    The food here is really good! Our chef here won the show Chopped a few years ago and it's easy to tell why! Also, we just opened up our newly redesigned caf�©, which has food until 11pm on the weekdays if you miss dining hours at the dining hall or if you need a late night snack which is awesome, the food there is also excellent.

    Hein Dining Hall provides multiple plates to choose from and the master chef won Chopped Grill Masters. Lucky's is also available to those who don't want to eat at the dining hall. They also provide a multitude of options.

    There are different Greek organizations on campus, but I have not personally been involved with any. However, there is a strong sense of unity within those groups, while still being able to associate with other students.

    We do have some sororities and fraternities, both social and academic. Freshman cannot pledge until the spring, which is a plus because it gives you a semester to get to know everyone on campus and which one would suit your personality the best.

    It's amazing. I love being in a sorority. Only 3 of the 5 sororities on campus really matter. Also, the frats are amazing. Thetas accept ANY and ALL prospects. Omegas are such chill guys, and Zetas are the frattiest frat boys alive!

    Greek life here is unlike the greek life at any other school in the nation. It consists of so much more than t-shirts and parties, and the stereotypes for each organization are completely different than those of national organizations. Greek life is taken very seriously here and each organization holds true to a set of values and standards defined by their constitutions. Our organizations are very tight-knit and truly work to empower the their members.

    Most Greeks here are only local with one regional sorority. Greek life is small but growing and fun to take part in.

    Greek life definitely has a presence on campus. They're known for the parties they throw and what they're involved in on campus. They're pretty friendly people.

    Although I was not involved in greek life, I had many friends who were and they all thoroughly enjoyed their experience. There is not a particularly large variety of greek life on our campus, but you have the opportunity to join different greek organizations through nearby schools such as UTSA or Texas State.
