  • The dorms here are astonishingly good. Everyone gets THEIR OWN ROOM, and the buildings are fairly new (in the case of West, brand new). Everyone gets their own sink, the…

    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.

    The dining hall seems to be good at the beginning of the semester, and slowly gets worse over time. The food after a while tastes the same, but I guess that is to be expected of cafeteria food. The Comet Cafe has a Papa Johns, Subway, Chick-fil-a. There is also a spot where you can get sushi and other types of salads in between the cafe and dining hall.

    They have lots of different foods available, from general foods to specific restaurants such as Chick-fil-A, panda express, and others.

    They have a chic-fil-a. That's all you ever need. Besides that though, they have a coffee lounge, a Subway (the sandwiches, not the train station!), Chic-Fil-A, and a pizza joint on campus.

    The food gets repetitive as the cheapest and healthiest option is Subway. Bottled water is expensive

    In all honesty, the food in college is as good as it gets at any public college. It's a step up from typical high school cafeteria food but it does get old fast and you'll be finding yourself wishing you could eat somewhere else.

    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.

    Although I personally have never entered into the Greek life, a student should at least give it some thought. A common quality of UTD's Greek life is its openness to newcomers and the friendliness of the people. Students are encouraged to join sororities and fraternities, and the student will never be subject to hazing techniques or unusual traditions. The Greek life on campus in general is very pleasing and makes for a positive experience at the university.

    To be honest, I didn't pay any attention at all to it. It exists on campus, but it's not really the focus.

    Greek Life on campus isn't huge but its very close. All councils have no problems with each other and always host event together. The greeks are very motivated and every organization is always surpassing everyones expectations in all categories, whether it be academics, social events, volunteering or leadership opportunities.
