    We have the big space with a lot of boxes of a different food but to be honest I don't eat and love it Because mostly, there are fast food that tastes like a plastic and these junk food is hurts our health.

    As a person with Celiac disease which gives me an intolerance to gluten, I am not able to eat a lot of the foods at the dining halls. They do happen to have some good gluten free options at the student center and at the dining halls, but I recommend joining Greek Life in order to round out your diet. You just don't get enough calories or variety otherwise. For everyone else, there's plenty of great food.

    The dining halls are tolerable and not as bad as you hear.

    While some may tell you that the Woody's dining hall will be the death of you, I've learned that this is not the case. The food is good, and they have very convenient working hours (until 2am usually). Imagine finishing an assignment at 1am and finding yourself in the need for some comfort food. You can just go to the dining halls and get some midnight breakfast. You should explore dining plans, and the special dining dollars they offer which are exempt from taxes.

    i'm a vegan, and they do have vegan options here. i am able to cook 95% of these foods, so i may end up doing that rather than paying thousands for a meal plan. a meal plan makes sense if 1. you do not know how to cook or 2. you are not living in an apartment and have no access to cooking.

    I'm not involved in Greek Life, but from what I've heard from friends it's pretty good. They have 40 frats and 20 sororities.

    Georgia Tech has a strong Greek life presence on campus. Rush is an exciting time for all and the overall sense of Greek life provides friendship and support.

    Greek life is okay. The ratio plays a role to the number of frats to sororities. Just know if your a guy and you want to go into a frat, you need to know a brother or they won't let you in.

    Greek life is good, but not as competitive or intense as at some bigger state schools. There are many good chapters and being involved in Greek life can make the Georgia Tech experience much more enjoyable.

    Greek Life on campus is pretty prominent. There are multiple Greek mansions for the sororities and fraternities on campus.

    I have not participated in Greek Life myself, but have friends who fully recommend and enjoy their Greek brothers and sisters.
