    The food is great, (for the first week)! After that it's not up to par and It's far from a homecooked meal. However there are other alternatives such as fast food places and food trucks.

    The food at the cafe is okay. Wish the hours were longer. I suggest buying the meal plan with the most Aggie Bucks. There are fast food places on campus like McCalisters, Azul Burrito, Food Trucks, Sushi, Chick-fil-a. There are also a lot of fast food places that deliver to A&T and will give you discounts if you are a student. About 5 minutes away (driving) you will end up on Summit road which has countless food places.

    I basically eat the same thing (burger and fries) but today I had rice and gravy with beef stew and it was actually good! Of course cafe food isn't gonna have the seasonings mama uses but it'll get you by. The cafe's omelets and smoothies are popular amongst students. Don't spend all your flex! The $300 flex plan is the best to route to go down if you can't see yourself in the cafe all the time. We have McAlisters, a chicken wing truck, Dominios, and any other surrounding fast food place that has delivery and takes flex.

    There are a plethora of different dining options on campus, including Pizza Hut, McAllisters, Chic-fil-A, Blimpies, Starbucks, Aggie Wing Truck and so many more. Williams Dining Hall is nice in structure and very sanitary. A&T also hosts monthly meetings where students can provide their opinions about the food and services (during this meeting they also provide a free 3 course meal).

    What's college without Greek Life? Greek life is a discrete matter on campus but one thing that is evident is that every org represents their org well through community service and leadership.

    Greek life picks up next semester so I can't really comment on any first hand experience. But I've seen alot of AKAs on campus and some Omegas.

    Greek life is a major part A&T. I strongly encourage getting involved. It helps you meet new people and provides you with tools to better yourself and your community.

    Greek life is really cool and interesting. It is taken seriously also. They are very active on campus and host many different programs so that the student body can meet them all and learn more and ask any type of questions they inquire about.
