    The MET (our cafeteria) serves undercooked and unhealthy food, but it's the only food open on the weekends. If you're a vegan or vegetarian, you'll get really familiar with Subway because the MET has no standards for serving students with dietary restrictions. Eating at home if you have a kitchen -- or even a microwave -- will always be your best option.

    Well the campus is not complete without a cafeteria. There is cafeteria in UT Tyler as well. It has got a wide range of food. There are many company outlets here like Subway, Chick-fil-a, Blends & Brews etc. There is a great list to choose from and enough space for a students to relax during their class break.

    University dining service, they come up with a variety of food which is very cheap and delicious. They are also concerned about the diet plan for every student. Bad food might disturb students academics, but they work had to keep the students more hygienic.

    honestly, the food is awful here. aramark is one of the worst food vendors out there. it's like eating garbage. to make matters worse, they force all students to buy a meal plan if they live anywhere on campus. you are better off choosing the smallest possible meal plan and saving your money for groceries. the met is terrible.

    The buffet sucks. Chick fil a and subway are nice to have on campus, but the buffet could use more healthy options. The salad bar is awful.

    The food is wonderful! There are always a few different choices, and they are all usually really good ones. Try the french fries for sure!

    Having communicated closely with the managers and workers in our dining area, there was much left to be desired.

    Does not pertain to me, but my friends in Greek life really enjoy it. They also do a lot to help out on campus.

    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.
