  • Some dorms are more united than others. My dorm, we all pretty much ignored each other. My friend's dorm had it's own Bonfire crew and hung out off campus.…

  • I stayed in a dorm my freshman year and it helps you meet many people which is a plus for a campus as large as A&M. Networking and friendships happen…

  • Not all of the dorms are brand new, but they are spacious enough to live in. The lofted beds have plenty of space beneath them, and the furniture is modern.…

    Sibisa ice cream is top notch, but much like McDonald's the ice cream machines aren't working.

    TAMU food always gives me a stomach ache, but they do also offer Chick-fil-A and a few other recognizable brands.

    I knew living away from home would mean learning to cook on my own and trying to make better choices with access to campus dining. I'm grateful for healthy options across the campus, so I don't have to rely on junk food. I have a regular routine down and know where to find the meals I enjoy. It's all about knowing your surroundings and talking to other students.

    The food here is awesome! There's so many options ranging from Chick-fil-a to Smoothie King to the food served at the campus dining hall called Sbisa. You could satisfy any cravings you may have.

    The dining halls are amazing especially the sbisa dining hall since its price is reasonable if you did not purchase a meal plan and its an all you can eat.

    I don't know much about Greek Life personally, but from what I heard, they make you feel like one big family. Those in fraternities and sororities always seem friendly and willing to help!

    There is definitely a lot of Greek Life going on! There are always events in which you can go and see the organizations for yourself and learn about them. Don't be afraid to ask question and make such to ask current members their opinions of the organization and find the best one that suits you! Trust me there is bound to be one with all the options!

    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.
