  • 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…

    Nice variety, plus there are places all over campus. Unfortunately a lot of them are M-F 9-5. http://www.dineoncampus.com/tamu/ is your friend.

    Sbisa is a great place to go for any meal, as long as you have a meal plan. There are a lot of places to eat and get coffee around campus, and a food truck is regularly near the Liberal Arts building. The food court in the MSC is full of enjoyable options; however, if you ever get tired of on-campus food, there are plenty of places just off campus to choose from.

    The meal plans are pretty good. If you are a freshman living on campus you have to great one! It is a downer that meals do not transfer over to the next semester so, make sure you have a plan that will work for you and not be a waste! Dining dollars (which is like regular cash expect on your student ID and only used for food) do roll over. However, you'll use these in flash! Take it from me. As to places to eat on campus there are many and, the dining places themselves change their meals every day or so; It is a nice place to get food that similar to 'home cook' meals.

    Probably the worst thing on campus for me, but that maybe because I'm a little picky with what I eat. Cafeteria food is good but can become bland even after just one semester. Don't think that you need a huge meal plan, I'm a big boy and I survived with a 90 block very well. Put your money on dining dollars cause that will always go first.

    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.

    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.

    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.
