    I'll admit that the food starts to taste not-so-good after a little while. Still, there are healthy choices and a pretty good variety, and the servers are very kind and know me by name.

    The quality of food offered by the school can vary as does any cafeteria. There is only one place to get actual food on campus and that is at the cafeteria.

    The dining hall is not bad, but you do get tired of it quickly. Decent options most of the time but the food is not wonderful. They have theme and culture days a few times a semester which are fun and have great food, though. The staff is wonderful, friendly and helpful. They're very good about accommodating special dietary needs. There is also an on-campus coffee shop which serves some food, smoothies, Starbucks coffee, and other drinks and snacks. The staff there are great as well, helpful and courteous.

    Eating at the cafeteria is not the best experience (however right now the company is up for contract renewal and may get replaced). The bad cafeteria food is made up for by the amazing local food. New Mexican cuisine tastes amazing and Socorro has a good amount of restaurants that offer a discount to Tech students. From eating 24/7 at El Camino, to munching on sopapillas at El Sombrero there is always an escape from the cafeteria.

    Food and dining is great for a student at NMT due to the never the always unique varieties of food. All foods also come with how many calories are in each to inform the student in case they want to keep watch over that kind of thing.

    Chartwells is our cafeteria chain. They provide a variety of healthy options including a full salad bar, a sandwich station, as well as a burger grill, a Mexican station as well as an Asian cuisine station. Additionally, we have a Starbucks facility on campus that is a favorite among students.

    There aren't really any places to really go out to eat, and the cafeteria isn't great. But there is a McDonald's, Burger King, Sonic and a few other family-owned restaurants.

    We have one fraternity and one sorority, both of which are pretty mild. They are very friendly, and it's easy to join.

    There is one fraternity and one sorority: Alpha Sigma and Alpha Sigma Kappa: women in technical studies, respectively. There is an unofficial fraternity house. The groups are fairly active, but more like clubs than traditional Greek life. Both groups have certain reputations on campus.

    Currently, there are only two Greek social organizations. The male fraternity is Kappa Sigma-Pi Tau chapter. the female sorority is Alpha Sigma Kappa-Eta chapter. These organizations work with one another to achieve unity within the campus, provide opportunity for philanthropy, and are both young on campus. For this last reason, neither organization has a house so joining will not guarantee you living arrangements.

    We have a small Greek life on campus. We have 1 fraternity and 1 sorority. Both are involved in philanthropy and are part of national chapters. The Greek life here may be small but they have a big impact.
