    Food is okay on campus. Not a lot of healthy options to select from, but there is Wich Which and others to select from besides the cafe. I would bring some things you can microwave in your dorm. Although the cafe is really helpful if you have allergies or are a vegan/vegetarian.

    The cafeteria has just been renovated and usually has a large variety of things all the time. The food there is pretty good, although I did get food poisoning this semester from the beef once. The Starbucks is fabulous, and there are three restaurants in the food court (Chik-fil-a, Backyard Burger, and Leafy Greens). There is also a convenient food truck to go to when you are in a rush, the only thing about that is finding out where it is on campus at a certain time. There is usually free food in the library during finals week. Au bon pain in the library is super convenient when you are studying and plan on being in the library for awhile.

    honesty, it is easy for anybody to get tired of college dining when on a meal plan. the key is diversity. ttu has great choices for dining experiences.

    The food is acceptable and average. Get a smaller meal plan if you get tired of eating the same food over and over again. I never finish my meal plans.

    You have plenty of options to choose from and it all is reasonably priced. And with the meal plan you don't hardly have to pay for your meals.

    Tech has outsourced their dinning services to a company that no one is really fond of. Thankfully, the local community offers special discounts in the various eateries and I am able to find yummy food all around town!

    For me personally I think that the food isn't really that great and I would recommend getting the smallest meal plan you can if you have to get one and just get food for your dorm. That will probably be the healthiest and cheapest option.

    The Cafe is very good, I however wish they had more options that were quicker. Swoops is always packed on lunch hour, avoid.

    Food and dining at Tech is improving. The meal plan for students is flexible, and a student can exchange a meal at any food establishment on campus with only one exception:, the library's small cafe. In addition to meal exchanges, students also have Flex Dollars which can be spent at any location. These act as a way to purchase food outside of the three meal exchanges you are permitted a day. The dining options on campus are expanding. In addition to the main cafeteria on campus which has a buffet style serving option, different fast food restaurants are either opened or opening, including Papa Johns and Chick-Fil-A. Off campus options are varied yet delicious, and typically honor student discounts.

    Some cool fraternities and sororities here at Tech. However, don't jump into Greek Life. You really need to access your specific situation and evaluate whether or not you can balance everything that Greek life throws at you with school work on top.

    Greek life is very noticeable on campus, and is a strong presence on campus. Rush week is very big, and many students are personally invited by members of the Greek life programs to enjoy different rush activities.

    Greek life is great! I recommend every student to be a part of the Greek life. Being a part of something that is bigger than yourself humbles you, which can lead to self satisfaction and better grades. When one joins the Greek life, they are introduced to a lot of new people that are glad to help you with your homework and study. They also value education. They tell you to go to class and finish homework before going to meetings or activities.

    There are four sororities in addition to a service sorority. These are great if you want to get involved with that type of organization. There are also many fraternities available for male students.
