Student Responses to Review Topic: Food And Dining

    I preferred cooking for myself over the dining halls. I think cooking meals a few times a week was better than eating in the dining hall because some days the dining hall choices were either lacking or the food was overall okay.

    If you're planning on getting a meal plan stay on east campus. I can't stress this enough. I lived on west all of freshman year and I can't say I enjoyed the dining experience. The first issue is that there's only one dining hall on west, and two one east. The second problem was that west campus has very limited food options/hours, whereas east has lots more food and stays open later. I tried to avoid west dining as much by going to campus retail options or to east campus for lunch during the week. But there were times when I had no choice but to eat at west. Not to condemn west campus dining, but if you're looking for the most convenience and trying to get the most for your money, east is where you need to be.

    North Ave. Diving hall is the best and food is definitely better than that served at high school.

    Food is good. If you don't like the food, there's always the entirety of Atlanta to eat. The food is good.

    Just to let you know woodies is the only dining hall they have on west. It is the oldest of the three Tech has, But they recently just added a popular wing place called wingzone on West. Plus there are a couple of restaurants in a short walking distance like five guys or firehouse subs. On East you have Britain and North Ave, the newest dining hall. The food is okay to eat. If you are not in the mood for dining hall food ,you can easily head up to Tech Square for some Tin Drums

    Have you ever heard of a college dining hall that excellent food? Me neither. The food is okay, it's not that awful, but sometimes it's not that good.

    I would personally give a 3 star for the dining halls and a 4 stars for food on campus. The dining hall foods aren't really top restaurant quality but it's not bad enough to the point where you get tired of it. There are also many variety of food available in the dining halls. Food on campus is 4 stars because at the student center, there's Taco Bell, Subway, Panda express(opening this fall), pizza hut, and a whole entire food court on the second floor which is delicious (A lot more quality fast food places). On the Fourth Floor, there's a fancier dinner place provided by the student center. And i forget on which days but there are food trucks that come to Tech Green every week!

    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.

    There are over 50 active Fraternities and Sororities on campus. Most of these fraternities contribute to the life of Georgia Tech by offering scholarships to students and even incoming freshmen, throwing parties, organizing events and also providing job opportunities for their members.
