    The food is good, but the dining hall are far apart and there are only two of them, so sometimes it's a long walk.

    The food and dining are just the same as a normal restaurant and there are many options, even though they are not healthy, that will keep you full until you want more. The meal plans consist of dining dollars and meal swipes and there is a lot of them but you will run out of them before the semester is over if you don't spread them out.

    The food is exceptionally well on campus. There are 2 dining hall, a few markets on campus, and also 2 buildings equipped with on campus fast food restaurants such as Pizza Hut and Freshens. If you don't like eating on campus there are also many little fast food places and restaurants not too far away from the University.

    I didn't eat on campus, but I noticed several eateries on my visit. The school uses a card that you load money onto to pay for meals.

    What I love about Texas State is that there are a ton of different dining halls to choose from and each one excepts your mandatory freshman meal plan in some form or fashion. There are two buffet style dining halls, one at each end of the campus and each has better quality than you'd expect in a school cafeteria. If you are interested in eating out there are a number of restaurants just a short bus ride away, the bus rides which are free by the way, courtesy of Texas State.

    Food is good but it gets tiring eating on campus food after a while. I wish they had healthier options and more vegetarian options as well. Cook whenever you can.

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.

    There is a slew of fraternities on campus, those ranging from social like DZ and ADPi, as well as SigNu and PiKap, to those catering to service like PhiMu and PhiIotaAlpha, to those catering to specific job markets like PhiMuAlpha, SigAlphIota, and MuPhiEpsilon, and even those that cater to social and religious interests like Lambda and BYX. You can see them on display in the quad and greek row runs along the borders of campus and up into the hill country of San Marcos.

    There are many social and service fraternities/sororities to join at TXST that can offer scholarship and friendship opportunities. While I highly recommend looking into the different processes and purposes of each, it is up to the student to decide what organization they think will be best for them. For myself, a music service fraternity offered the best chance for me to get involved in the community with something that I love andthat would benefit me in many ways.
