    Had dining hall food my Freshman year. It needs improvement, but they have come a long way with their food now. They also have Dining dollars than you can use at little food courts throughout campus. Whatever you don't use at the end you can spend on fit bits, food packages, or whatever prizes they have.

    D-Hall isn't as bad as everyone perceives it to be.

    The main source of food on campus comes from the Dinning Hall. The hall has a lot of variety of food to eat from pizza, to burgers, to Native Texas food, to international cuisine. If you don't feel like eating at the dinning hall, there is a chic-fil-A, a sushi place, a pizza place, and a burrito place on campus in the Student center. There are also some off campus places to eat as well, including Subway, Starbucks, and Hard Eight BBQ.

    Two places on campus, the dining hall and chick fil a. The dining hall isn't exactly five star but it's not too bad.

    The most important part of college life, food. While there is only one dining hall on the 140 acres of campus they also make up for it with the multiple food courts and close surrounding food restaurants. After the first semester the food can get old, but its 5x better than the high school cardboard meals you're used to. There are multiple food options available at every meal, international food, sub sandwich shop, breakfast bar (open all day), fast food type meals, vegetarian and gluten free food, pizzeria and pasta bar, and a mama's home cooking line. It is a pretty decent selection and it's pretty good.

    The Dining Hall is at a really good location on campus, food is sub-par but they always have special events and serve really good food during this too.

    The food in the dining hall is enough to survive. It might be good at orientation, but it is not like that everyday. I can count on one hand how many times I actually said the dining hall food was good that day.

    I would not have participated in Greek life if I was on the campus, but there are many opportunities to participate for those that would like to join in on the fun.

    Tarleton has several Greek organizations students can join. They advertise everywhere, from their hand-painted signs to their students wearing their shirts and other products. Greek life at Tarleton is always within a hearing range, especially when the groups compete in a yell contest where groups yell traditions of Tarleton to different song tunes, while having still to dance/march to their unique yells.

    We have very active Greek life. Although I am not a member of Greek life I am amazed daily at the amount of activities the Greek girls and guys do on campus.

    The Greek community has become one of the largest and most active groups on campus with numerous opportunities to hold influential leadership positions. Collectively, thousands of community service hours and thousands of dollars are contributed annually to local and national philanthropy projects.
