    In previous years, the food at A&M was okay. But, since the MSC has reopened, they are trying to get different and better dining options.

    A&M has good food facilities, but its best by far is Sbisa, the all-you-can-eat dining hall. Every semester I have attended, there have been noticeable improvements to the food and decoration. I would still hesitate, however, before getting boxed into the larger meal plans there. You will still crave the variety of outside food.

    The food at the University dining hall is pretty average, nothing special. But there's plenty of chains on campus and within walking so if the food on campus isn't doing it for you, you've got plenty of options.

    Don't get me started on the food at A&M! Sbisa is the main dining hall located on the north side of campus, and it's amazing! not just because it's a buffet, but the quality of the food is also great.

    Freshman who live on campus are now required to have a dining plan beginning in the fall of 2012. TAMU has two large dining halls as well as other options throughout campus.

    Although there are more dining options on the North side of campus, the South side has this location called the Commons. There are plenty of dining locations to choose from, and plenty which are famous because of their delicious food.

    I don't like greek life in general, but it's here. As far as I can tell, it's the same as you'll find anywhere else. And the people all look and act and dress the same too.

    There seems to be a never-ending supply of fraternities and sororities. If that's what you're looking for, you'll have plenty of options.

    Attended the meeting for Greek Life during NSC. Nice presentation. Not all national sororities and fraternities are at TAMU. Rush begins in late August for women. Around 3700 students participate in Greek Life.

    There are more fraternities and sororities around campus than I can count. In every class you will see at least one person wearing a shirt with their Greek letters on them.

    I'm not in a sorority, but I have gone to some of the charity events, over all a good experience helping out the community.

    I was never in a sorority, but many of my friends were. They loved their sisters and the weekly activities they did together. Another plus is the ability to live on sorority row. These houses look like southern mansions.

    Although the Greek life may not be for everyone, at Texas A&M University at College Station the Greek life allows students the opportunity to create lifelong friendships that are tied by the pride of sisterhoods and brotherhoods. The Aggie Greek Life allows students to be apart of a tight net group of people who help to better each other everyday; like studying, and doing service work together.

    Greek life here is not huge or all-encompassing like UT greek life. But many people here like it more because it is smaller, more personal, and still offers a number of fun group activities. I think the quality of greek life depends on what you are looking for out of it. If large numbers and a ton of activities is what you are looking for--Texas A&M's Greek life will likely disappoint. But if you are looking for a smaller (still large) group of friends and a fair amount of activities, then A&M would be perfect.
