    The food was pretty good! After a while things got old, because I ate it so much. But they always had a lot of healthy choices.

    The only good place is the den(food court). the only thing i like from Jones (food court) is panda express and you can't get that all the time. Commons and Harris (which is buffet style) has some good stuff and then they have some not so good stuff. commons breakfast is amazing though.

    Food and dining on campus was great at the beginning of the school year, but when you continue to eat it everyday and have tried everything you get tired of it. There's nothing like a home cooked meal. Overall, good quality of food.

    I generally cook for myself. The school snack bars a rather expensive for the food. The restaurants that i have been to are good. I am just trying to save money. I like Bill Miller's but there is not one in S.M.

    There is a slew of fraternities on campus, those ranging from social like DZ and ADPi, as well as SigNu and PiKap, to those catering to service like PhiMu and PhiIotaAlpha, to those catering to specific job markets like PhiMuAlpha, SigAlphIota, and MuPhiEpsilon, and even those that cater to social and religious interests like Lambda and BYX. You can see them on display in the quad and greek row runs along the borders of campus and up into the hill country of San Marcos.

    There are many social and service fraternities/sororities to join at TXST that can offer scholarship and friendship opportunities. While I highly recommend looking into the different processes and purposes of each, it is up to the student to decide what organization they think will be best for them. For myself, a music service fraternity offered the best chance for me to get involved in the community with something that I love andthat would benefit me in many ways.

    From what my friend says, it's awesome and she loves it! You just have to find the one right for you. (If you do want to rush. If not, it's perfectly fine. I didn't and I still love it here and had no problem meeting people!)
