    The meal plans are lame, but if you don't live on-campus then you're not required to have one. The minimum plan is 7 meals a week, but keep in mind that with everyone living on-campus being required to have one, the food courts and participating restaurants are PACKED during meal time.

    The food on campus is absolutely wonderful. We have Panda Express, Chick-fil-A, Starbucks, etc. You can get any fix without having to leave campus which is great for in between classes.

  • Jan-19-2015 I am a current student here

    Duncan is good for lunch time but can be intimidating because it is known as the Corps' dining hall. I wouldn't try going there for breakfast or dinner though because it is very intimidating to see 2.5k people swarming all at once to get food. try out the food court in Zachary though as I have always liked their sandwich shop!

    Your diet will consist of lots of fast food and Sbisa cafeteria. There isn't a whole lot of variety, and the fast food places on campus are typically downgrades of the same fast food places off campus.

    Overall there are pretty good options on campus,. However, if you are on west campus your options are very limited and can get old pretty fast.

    The food is great, if one is tired of eating at the dining hall, then they can use their dining dollars, which allows them to buy food at a convenience store (that allows dining dollars).

    While I personally love cafetaria food (and would have given five stars) it is cafetaria so some people hate it and some people enjoy it. Sbisa (the main cafetaria) usually has wide selection of food both healthy and not. This isn't mentioning the other tons of places to eat on campus at the food courts or other places from name brand (Chick-fil-a) to campus only vendors.

    There are numerous sororities and fraternities, so if Greek life is your thing, you won't have a problem with it.

    I am in the Corps of Cadets, so I don't know much about them, but they are always having events to raise money for charities and fun runs.

    Greek life isn't quite as big here as at other schools, but is still neat and widespread! Sororities and fraternities give you a friend group right off the bat and can provide you with lots of opportunities.

    I am not into the Greek life, but there are many sororities and fraternities to choose from. Texas A&M does not tolerate hazing however.

    The Greek life tends to exist in its own little bubble. Everyone is aware of them, and there are a lot of them, but if you aren't in on it they're pretty easy to ignore.

    Although I am not in a sorority, I know so people who are. It is very time consuming and expensive. There are a lot of people who join greek life, it's just something not for me.

    Texas A&M has 58 national and international Greek organizations and many students are a part of Greek life. The organizations are managed by the Organization of Fraternity and Sorority Life.
