    Again, I live off campus so I don't eat on campus very much. But the few times that I have it has been very good. They do have a lot of options for students as far as food goes.

    They have a lot of discounts at certain places around campus that you can go to. They also have a diverse amount and type of food. You can go to different dorms and locations to buy different types of food. Hospitality is also very nice and helpful. Overall, they do a great job with their food.

    They have many Greek life opportunities. Many people participate and have fun in these sororities and fraternities.

    I'm apart of the Greek life at Tech and it involves about 20% of our schools population. It's a big deal and I would recommend Greek Recruitment to anyone who wants to find a new home and place to belong as well as life long friendships. Greek life has truly impacted my college years in the best ways possible and I am very thankful for my friendships that I have made through my sisterhood.

    They are really big around campus and they do their fair share in the community. Their are dues to pay in whichever you choose to become apart of. Some are very easy to join and others require much more dedication. That depends on you and how good you are with time management. I do not have the best advice for you on Greek life but I do have quite a few friends who are and let me tell you they are always up to doing something very busy guys and girls but they enjoy it so...
