    Texas southern reminds you of all the things you love about the south. As far as our fine dinning with some of the best cooks serving up some beautiful soul food. All the way from fried chicken and red beans and rice to fried catfish and gumbo on Fridays.

    There is vending machines, a BBQ truck, and a Chickfila; I do wish there were more options to choose from but maybe that is good that they don't so I can save my money.

    There is a Chik-Fil-A on campus that is ok, the staff is just not like a normal Chik-Fil-A and they never have condiments.

    Cafe is good as well as the other food places that are at TSU. The only thing I do not like it the the little variety that TSU students have as far as food choices on campus goes.

    Total waste of time and a distraction on campus. The greek system is designed for insecure people of weak character and an identity crisis. I encourage everyone to seek membership in organizations outside greek for community service, improving your resume, and meeting other students .... there's dozens. I have zero respect for the greek system b/c of mountains of evidence proving they're divisive, problematic, regressive, and immature. The truly progressive, cool & unique people are not greek.

    To be honest, I've never heard of greeks until I stepped foot on the campus of Texas Southern University. It is truly a beautiful thing!

    Texas Southern is rich in Greek Life. Greek fraternities and sororities that have been in existences nearly since the beginning of the University. The famed Ques, the Kappa's, AKA's and Delta's just to name a few.
