    The food is great! There is a variety of options to choose from as well as a few fast food locations. Although instead of Moe's, something else would have been built, it would be perfect.

    Due to the extraordinary amount of international students one campus (UTA is one of the most diverse in the country) the cafe serves mostly international food, the majority of which is Indian food. Normally, I wouldn't have a problem with this, but unfortunately the spices used in Indian food upset my stomach and I have a hard time eating it. There are other options, but on some nights Indian food is the only option besides a salad or pizza, and having salad for every meal gets really dull really fast. In addition, dorms like mine are required to pay for a $2,000 meal plan which means I can't afford to go an buy my own food because I've used all my money to pay for foods I'm not eating.

    The food needs to change every once in a while! The food isn't the best, but it's good to eat once in a while. However it gets boring. They only seem to try hard on special occasions such as holidays.

    Food and dining has been a pretty good experience. Sometimes the bread is stale or expired though. Also, sometimes the food is mislabeled, but other than that its good!

    There is a good variety of food on campus and are open most of the day so you don't get bored of the food that quickly.

    There are a lot of food choices on campus. That being said, they still tend to be a little disappointing. There is plenty of food around campus though.

    The food is by no means bad if you get a meal plan. There's a food court with a few fast food places, a general all-you-can-eat cafe, and some restaurants on campus. However, don't be afraid to get the cheapest meal plan possible. Trust me, you won't use all 165 meals, in fact you won't want to. You can only have so many burgers and fries before you get sick of it. Most people have about 50 meals so students use about 100 or so on average. As much as we'd like to think we'd eat every single meal we have on campus, that's just not true. The food you can get with any meal plan is not bad, but after the 20th meal you use in the cafe you'll get pretty tired of half-decent pizza and fries that are sometimes soggy sometimes crunchy. Overall, I'd say getting a commuters meal plan is idea but you should definitely invest in groceries since you, for one, won't finish a residence hall meal plan and you'll want a variety to what you eat (if you're trying to eat healthy, buy groceries, don't purchase a meal plan).

    I highly recommend it. I was skeptical at first but I found the one that I belonged to and I am eternally grateful.

    Many people enjoy the Greek life here. There isn't many incidents of Hazing or crazy college initiation tasks done. Just be careful of the parties and understand that joining a sorority or fraternity costs money. Some sororities and fraternities are very low in their costs but others are very high. On a per month or per semester basis.

    I'm not involved but they are very present on campus. They step, they dance, they campaign for charity, hold fashion shows and barbeques, and that's just what I see when I'm walking on campus. The people involed in greek Life that I've met seem very happy and committed to it.

    They offer a variety of organizations for these types of affiliations. These organizations are great to join and offer a lot of diversity and college related affairs. I plan on joining some in the near future myself.

    Greek or geek alike will enjoy the campus. The geek will enjoy all the technology and library services, and the Greek will enjoy the Greek food and festival.
