    The food is okay, and the selection is varied, but UTEP would really benefit from having more healthy options for food and drink. You basically have Starbucks, Jamba Juice, Quiznos, Einstein Bros Bagels, and stuff like that to choose from.

    The food is absolutely disgusting and overpriced.

    With a Starbucks at hand, snack time is great. Though cafe time is a little boring, but you can always spice up the lunch hour with a little off campus driving to a wing shack or a treat to some fine dinning.

    The food is poor because the quantity (portion size) of food as well as the the price is overpriced. For prices being placed on food one can expect the food to match up the price amount.

    There's lots of small restaurants offered at the UTEP union which are really good. Sadly, a lot of them are a bit too expensive for my taste, but it's ok when you get one or two meals a week rather than being eating in fast-food places 5 days a week.

    On campus you will find about ten different restaurants to choose from which are reasonably priced. Outside of campus there are various restaurants to choose from; some are local and others big chain. There is always something new to try.

    There is a big presence of Greek Life on UTEP, and they are almost always recruiting new members. I never really experienced it, but I know people who have and who say that it's great.

    While I am not personally involved in Greek Life, its evident that all the fraternities and sororities are a great big family. They are very active across campus and the city to really promote their philanthropy and to make a difference.

    I am not really aware of the greek life. I am not in a sorority but we definitely have many who are a part of that lifestyle on campus.
