    There is a main cafeteria that provides hamburgers, hotdogs, pizza, salads, and sandwiches, and occasionally something to mix it up. There are also retail dining locations like chick-fil-a, mcallister's, burger studio, java city, an asian cuisine place, and a place called POD, which is like a mini grocery store. The food on campus is alright, it could be better, but it could also be a lot worse.

    Meh. I'm not a fan if buffets, so I'm not a fan of the cafe and almost everywhere else on campus is expensive... I typically venture if campus for food.

    The food and dining on campus is pretty decent unless you are expecting gourmet food. I only eat in the cafeteria once a day, so I do not know how different the lunch and dinner menus are. However, there are a lot of options within the café: there is always a pizza station, a salad bar, basic burger/fries, and a few â??entrée and sidesâ?? options. Outside of the café, the most popular options are probably Chick-Fil-A and McAllisterâ??s. You will inevitably have to wait a long time for your food at McAllisterâ??s, but it is worth it. Other on-campus dining options include a Burger Studio, a Cajun place called Kickinâ?? Cajun, a sushi/rice place, a sandwich joint, and a pasta/pizzeria. Thereâ??s also a coffee place called Java City that I personally think is as good as Starbucks, but it has way less drinks to choose from. There are plenty of tables set up inside and outside that are perfect for eating, socializing, and enjoying the rare nice Louisiana weather. If you get tired of the on-campus options, Tech Drive, the main road leading to Tech from the interstate, has lots of cheap fast-food and snack places. The only complaint that comes to my mind is the pricey meal plan you are forced to buy every quarter if you live in the dorms or on-campus apartments. Some people can use it up, but you have to pay for it even if you do not use it all.

    Dining is wonderful here at Tech. We have plenty of options to choose from. The student center contains a food court (asian place, Burger Studio, Salad Garden, snacks, and drinks), the cafeteria, and a Chick-fi-la!!! Tolliver contains a McCallister's, Bene Pasta (create your own pasta bowl), Java City, and Byte's Store. You can also purchase snacks from the bookstore.

    The cafeteria food is actually good. There is a different variety everyday and healthy options are available. There is a Chick fil A, burger place, salad place, pizza place, sushi/asian food place and a mini convenient store.

    The food is ok, but there are not very many healthy options and the school could do a lot better where the cafeteria is concerned.

    The cafeteria has a wide range of choices, there is a mini food court around it with reasonable prices. There is also a mall-like food court in a separate building right across from the caf that even has a little convenience store. They have multiple meal plans to appeal to everyone and with certain plans the additional money can be used around campus.

    I love and will miss Greek life. I am now alum Alphi Chi, but will always cherish the friendships made in the sorority.

    Pike and Delta Chi have new houses and they are adding a fifth sorority to Sorority Row. While there are some African Americans in the Major fraternities, there are majority African American fraternities that you will not see when you "Rush." I have no idea why I did not see these fraternaties when I rushed, or why there fraternaties houses are not more prominent on campus (perhaps they are, I just never see them).

    Greek life is a major component at Louisiana Tech. I personally was a Sigma Kappa and it made my college experience what it is today. I met so many people, became involved with so many organizations, and participated in many charities thanks to my greek involvement. Not to mention, it's a blast! I highly encourage everyone to go through rush. It is definitely not the stereotypical greek life that is depicted in the movies. We have very strict hazing policies and community involvement is very evident.

    There are many different fraternities and sororities on campus. There are only four black fraternities though. Delta Sigma Theta, Omegas, Alphas, and AKA's.

    I can not really comment on the Greek Life because I am only a freshmen and I have not joined anything. From what I do see on campus it seems like it will be fun and it will give you the chance to make a new group of friends.

    Greek Life at Louisiana Tech University is also a special and popular way students are able to get involved and enjoy college life. Commitment to no hazing, supporting nationally known organizations, and throwing great parties are a few ways that Greek Life at Louisiana Tech University is so special.
