Student Responses to Review Topic: Food And Dining

  • I am a current student here

    There is a huge variety of foods in the university! There is Jones Dining Hall with Panda Express, knock-off Chipotle, burgers, pizza, and a deli. In LBJ you will find the Chick Fil A andStarbucks along with other little restaurants brining a huge variety. There are two other dining halls that serve home-made food. They are awesome and the employees will work with your dietary restrictions! I will say that it is difficult to be a vegetarian when living off dining dollars.

    The food is very okay. All of the dining halls serve basically the same foods and they keep the same menu everyday. All of the staff in the dining halls are wonderful and always can be found with a smile! The dining halls are always kept clean as well.

    Being a relatively healthy vegetarian I found that there aren't very many healthy options on campus. Although there are a plethora of options, I know that many college students care about their diets and having more accessible healthy food options on campus could really help. They do have some incredible coffee on campus, however, and no I'm not talking about Starbucks.

    Dining options can be far away depending on where you've chosen to live. I have a ten minute walk from my dorm. So keep that in mind. But the food selection has a great variety so I never really got tired of eating the same things. I also bought food from an HEB that was close by the campus.

    There are many great fast food places in which to eat on/off campus. Depending on how much you eat, you may change your meal plan after 1st semester up/down. Salt grass is a favorite when the family is in town.

Student Responses to Review Topic: Greek Life

    The Greek life is based on the person on what they want to experience in these fraternities and sororities because you meet you future best friends for life in these organizations. The reason behind this is the bond you develop when meeting them for the first time and you instantly become like a brother or sister to them.
