    They have the usual college credit and block-lunching plans, but the cafeteria seems pretty nice. Looks like a good variety of foods to choose from. There's also a variety of non-college stores to choose from. They have a grocery store onsite close to the cafeteria.

    Ahh, food and dining. This is where many would give mixed ratings but I will tell you the truth. There are several places to eat, both on-campus and off-campus. On the grounds of UTA, there is the Connection Café where meal plans are primarily used. The Plaza which serves Chic-Fil-A, Panda Express, Subway and few other restaurants for money. You have the POD which is like a convenient store/ gas station like store that has chips, soda, ramen noodles and other convenience items. Right off of campus is the College Park District that has Yogurt, Pizza, Grill & Bar and a couple other places to dine but are a little more pricy. Now if you go down South Cooper, you will find your Taco Bell, McDonalds, Whataburger and other various dining establishments. The Food is decent at all locations and enjoyable.

    They have a requirement for a meal plan for students that stay in dorms, but they also provide meal plans for commuters. The meal plan includes meals for the Connection Cafe and dining dollars for the food court, Starbucks, and the P.O.D store.

    I haven't experienced the cafeteria(again, don't live on campus), but the other dining options are pretty expansive. The options on campus alone are�a lot. It's like a little city all of its own. And if what you want isn't on campus, it is probably really close by! Some of my favorite restaurants are within walking distance of UTA.

    The food is good. There are plenty of fast food places on campus like Panda express and Chik-fil-a, as well as a nice dinning buffet for people who buy a meal plan. It is very convenient and there are little stores in buildings with high traffic for basic groceries and snacks.

    Many people enjoy the Greek life here. There isn't many incidents of Hazing or crazy college initiation tasks done. Just be careful of the parties and understand that joining a sorority or fraternity costs money. Some sororities and fraternities are very low in their costs but others are very high. On a per month or per semester basis.

    I'm not involved but they are very present on campus. They step, they dance, they campaign for charity, hold fashion shows and barbeques, and that's just what I see when I'm walking on campus. The people involed in greek Life that I've met seem very happy and committed to it.

    They offer a variety of organizations for these types of affiliations. These organizations are great to join and offer a lot of diversity and college related affairs. I plan on joining some in the near future myself.

    Greek or geek alike will enjoy the campus. The geek will enjoy all the technology and library services, and the Greek will enjoy the Greek food and festival.
