    A variety of foods can be found on campus. Some restaurants on campus can even accommodate you on being fast enough to allow you a quick lunch or dinner before your next class. The prices are also reasonable enough for those that need to eat on campus at least once a day every day. The quality of the food is also great and menus vary to be able to accommodate everyone's eating options.

    Never really experienced much dining on campus, but the Subway is pretty good. And the cafeteria isn't too bad.

    The campus has three main places where you can eat. Those are Chic-Fil-A, Subway, and the cafeteria. The first two are the same as any restaurant, but the cafeteria is an all you can eat buffet. They breakfast and lunch and close at eight. There is no limit to what you can eat there.

    The Greek life is fairly small, there are three frats (Kappa Sig, Phi Kappa Phi, and Sigma Alpha Epsilon), and two sororities ( Delta Gamma and AKO)

    There's two sororities and a few more fraternities. I'm not involved but they're always doing something on and off campus from what I've seen.

    I am not a part of Greek life, but some of my friends who are a part of it love it and have made lifelong friendships there.

    Greek life is meant for those who want to become friends with random strangers in an instant, and have connections with people you would never have dreamed of. Sororities like Delta Gamma show their pride as they host bake sales and have an organization fit for duty and fun, all at the same time. Fraternities for men like Sigma Alpha Epsilon who want to become brothers and mentors to younger generations to come and of the past are fantastic! There's never a moment when you won't have somebody there for you, looking at for your best interests and helping you out every step of the way. Greek life at UT Tyler is just absolutely amazing and you can't get much better from anywhere else.

    I'm in a sorority and this has been my very 1st experience. Not exactly what I thought it was going to be like, because the older girls are more catty, than helpful. I wish they were more like having a big sister but they're not. Too much into themselves. It's a shame.

    There is currently 3 fraternities and 2 sororities. The Greek life is growing each year, and they are working on adding a new sorority right now. I highly recommend going through recruitment and joining one of these because this is a great way to become involved in the school. Greek life isn't quite as big here as most universities, but its still a whole lot of fun.

    Although I am not a part of Greek Life, I know many people who are and absolutely love it. We do not have fraternity and sorority housing, but that does not stop many students from joining Greek Life.
