    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.

    The food on TCU's campus is pretty good. There aren't many selections at the moment, but the dining complex is under a massive renovation that will open in January 2015 that will have a plethora of new dining options for students.

    The food is pretty good. There are many places you can eat that are in walking distance from the dorms and classrooms. The bluu has many choices to choose from.

    The cafeteria is great. Lots of options, including some for vegetarians, and free ice cream is always a bonus.

    The BLUU (the cafeteria) provides so many options that other universities do not have including a smoothie bar, vegetarian and gluten free options, and different cultural cuisines each day. On campus we have a few cafes and chick-fla and right off campus there is plenty of local and fast-food chains a walking distance away.

    Amazing. Everything you could possibly ask for. Get a meal plan. It's cheaper.

    Market Square is the main dining hall at TCU. Everyone gets to choose a meal plan: unlimited swipe, 15 meals/wk etc, however, freshmen have to have a meal plan. Some meal plans have frog bucks and campus cash. You can use frog bucks at restaurants that accept frog bucks near campus. Remember, if you dine out at a restaurant near campus, make sure you show them your student ID and they will give you a discount.

    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.

    I'm not in a sorority, so I don't really know much.

    Greek life is HUGE here at TCU. I personally didn't even realize it until I got to campus and everyday you see girls in their sorority t-shirts. At least 40% of the student body here at TCU is involved in Greek life. Personally, it's not for me, but I have found no issue meeting people not involved as well. It's one of those things that, if you want to be involved, great, but if not, you will still be just fine without it.
