  • Dorm life is really fun! WT has many dorms to choose from, some older some newer. The cheaper dorms usually don't have air conditioning but the family and community aspect…

    The dining hall, JBK food center, and snack areas are all wonderful on campus. I have never had a bad experience with any of them. The food is always warm and delicious. It's never a bad decision to stop in and grab a bite between classes.

    The caff seems like a great place to eat, almost like a college version of Golden Corral.

    It's not your usual Home cooked meal but it's not as bad as others will make it out to be. On campus there is also a food court that has fast food which is good, but then in the cafeteria is always something good there.

    The food at the food court and cafeteria are both pretty good. Everything is always pretty well cooked thoroughly. The prices in the food court could be a little less and I doubt they'd lose any profit at all because it's so frequently used.

    The food here is awesome. You can choose from the dining hall or different restaurants on the main street right by the school.

    The cafeteria on campus is not very good. There is not a wide variety, and sometimes the food is undercooked.

    The dining hall at West Texas A&M University has been improving constantly since I arrived as a freshman. The dining hall features vegetarian options as well as gluten free options. The Jack B. Kelly Student Center is also a great place to eat. It has Quiznos, Chick-fil-a, sushi, a coffee shop, and other dining options. It also had a convenience store filled with snacks and drinks.

    Greek life is good for the people who want to be involved in Greek life. The sororities and fraternities are all welcoming to everyone and make sure that everyone feels included. There isn't one group that singles out anybody. They all are great for campus and stay involved in everything that goes on on campus.

    Greek life does not really affect the social atmosphere of the school. Non-Greeks are indifferent about Greek life.

    I do not take part in Greek Life, but I am however associated with people who are enrolled. They love every minute of it, have tons of friends, and lots of fun. The fraternities do favors for the sororities and visa versa.

    I was not personally involved in Greek life, but I know a lot of my friends are involved in the greek organizations. It's very intimidating for the girls at first with Rush week, but the greeks provide a sisterhood or brotherhood that is really hard to find anywhere else on campus and they do lots of volunteering for the community. This organization also provides lots of job opportunities later after graduation.
