    I can tell they're trying to make some foods more healthier. The food in the dining hall can get tiring. However that is expected from any college dining food. They have other restaurants on campus as well and I'm excited for the new ones that are opening.

    On campus dining options are decent. They just opened a pizza hut, a new resident dining hall, a einsteins bagel, and an ihop is in the works. We still need a 24 hr dining option or something that is open past 11pm.

    There's really not much diversity in their food. Half my life spent at UTD is at the Comet Cafe which provides: Chick-fil-a, Subway, a salad bar called Create, and another food store. The Pub restaurant is good though! They have some Starbucks drinks available and have really good food! I guess what I want is a tad bit more variety.

    From what I've seen the Dining Hall used to have a lot more in it? However there is ranges of food including Outtakes (similar to a Panera) a deli, Chick-Fil-A, and a Subway. There is also a restaurant called The Pub

    Limited amount of options, they will be adding new foods but so far, subway, chick-fil-A, papa johns, chef's corner (5 options varies on the day). Containers of Teriyaki chicken with rice, sandwiches, salads, sushi, and other small things. The Dining Hall is were most of the students with meal plans go or those who want buffet style. The food there is OK they have variety different types of foods, Chinese, Mexican, Italian, etc. Though the prices have increase and the food there is decent some days they have good food others you wish you had your money's worth. Off campus the food there is good so it makes up for on campus food

    The Comet Cafe has options like Chick-fil-A, Subway, and Papa John's. There's also sushi and California rolls at Outtakes Grab n' Go. You can eat in the Dining Hall with a meal plan, but if you don't have one it's around $9. The Pub is a pretty nice place to eat on campus and occasionally has live music.

    There is greek life. The one thing that is different than other campuses with greek life is that we don't have Greek Houses, but I think they compensate by their activities together and participate a lot at UTD.

    Decent Greek life system, but no Greek Row/Greek housing. Not really a ton of options, and the administration seems hell-bent on keeping Greek Life from becoming a large part of the college like it is at other universities. However, they really crack down on hazing, so that's a plus I guess.

    The Greek Life on campus is not bad for the setting. Obviously you won't be getting the same experience as the universities who have houses, but overall it is an enjoyable experience. Many of the campus leaders are involved in greek life, and this is an extremely easy way to meet many new people.

    Don't worry there is greek life here at UTD, so if you're into that kind of thing you can join in on it and you'll find that you'll be busy with all the activities that the greek life groups partake in.
