Student Responses to Review Topic: Food And Dining

    Market Square (often referred to as The Bluu) is better than most college cafeteria's I would say. The food is very repetitive though and can get old fast. As a freshman, unlimited swipes to the Bluu are mandatory. Stir Fry is a crowd favorite and don't sleep on the sand which station with the panini press!

    The food here is great. However, sometimes it can be repetitive. However, compared to other schools, TCU's dining plan is superior.

    I have not tasted the food on campus personally, but current students say it is really good (not like high school cafeteria food). They all enjoy eating on campus and like the convenience of being a few buildings away from the dining hall. Meal plans include plenty of food for the average student.

    The meal plan TCU puts you on is pretty expensive, but unlimited swipes into the union at any time of day kind of make up for that. The food at the BLUU can get a little repetitive, but I've almost never had trouble finding something to eat. There's a smoothie bar, hummus bar, deli bar, salad bar, dessert bar, PB and J bar... And if you're not in the mood for that, we have a Chick-fil-a on campus as well as a subway-style sandwich line at the Union Grounds cafe. Plus, tons of great restaurants within walking distance.

    Since Texas Christian University is in Fort Worth, there are many food options. But, again, since I am not a student there, I cannot speak about the quality of the dining halls.

    Their food court is extremely well run, offering a survey of options, ranging from mexican food to chinese to barbeque. Also, it is open 24/7, and anyone on the meal plan can come there anytime and eat just by swiping their I.D.

    Excellent food; this is a major step up from high school cafeteria food.

    It. Is. EVERYWHERE. Over half of the campus is Greek but despite popular belief, there are people who aren't Greek as well and it's not too difficult to find them.

    Fraternities and sororities are quite large here. I originally did not think that I would pledge anything but ended up finding a great group of guys that I felt connected with. Go BETA THETA PI!

    You've probably heard all kinds of things about Greek life, both good and bad. Sure, it has a large presence on campus, but it's not overwhelming in the slightest. Personally rush wasn't for me, and that has never been an issue. I have friends both inside and outside of the Greek system, and I'm in enough other clubs and activities that I never feel left out.

    Greek Life here is extremely prevalent. I don't feel really any pull towards it, but if you're considering it, you will fit right in with the crowd and make friends super fast.

    Seems important, but students say they feel they don't absolutely have to be involved to fit in. There are tons of smaller sororities if you want a specific niche

    Greek life is huge on campus, and you'll find all types from the stereotypical groups, the the standard setters who focus on getting back to what Greek is meant for - bettering themselves and those around them. It's not necessary to rush if you don't want to, but being Greek only opens you up to more opportunities around you on campus.
