    Cafe is good as well as the other food places that are at TSU. The only thing I do not like it the the little variety that TSU students have as far as food choices on campus goes.

    Dining Hall is okay. Normally soul food. Fried fish Fridays or Fried chicken Wednesday's. There's other fast-food or to go options here as well, like A&W or some wings place upstairs. It's okay. I would recommend if your a freshmen not to get the most expensive meal plan because it gives you less points to eat out besides the dining hall. For example, you would have to use your meal points to eat at the Einsteins bagels in the Science building or the A&W. The less your meal plan is the more money you get for your meal points.

    Total waste of time and a distraction on campus. The greek system is designed for insecure people of weak character and an identity crisis. I encourage everyone to seek membership in organizations outside greek for community service, improving your resume, and meeting other students .... there's dozens. I have zero respect for the greek system b/c of mountains of evidence proving they're divisive, problematic, regressive, and immature. The truly progressive, cool & unique people are not greek.

    To be honest, I've never heard of greeks until I stepped foot on the campus of Texas Southern University. It is truly a beautiful thing!

    Texas Southern is rich in Greek Life. Greek fraternities and sororities that have been in existences nearly since the beginning of the University. The famed Ques, the Kappa's, AKA's and Delta's just to name a few.
