Student Responses to Review Topic: Food And Dining

    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.

    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 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.
