    There are a bunch of food choices all around campus which is my favorite part of UNT.... just kidding. But, the food is great. The dining halls include: Champs, Maple, Bruce, West and Kerr. My favorite hall is Bruce because they have more variety in their food and the food tastes better. They have a different variety of food everyday with pizza, pasta, salad and deserts. On campus there are more food choices like Kush Roti that specializes in international sandwhiches and now with the student union being open, there are even more choices! I love it.

    Every morning I ate at Kerr Hall. The food, to me, was good. Things to know: 1. Your hall may not have a cafeteria in it, so you will have to walk to another hall. This may or may not be a problem for you, if you are relying on eating in the cafeterias; during the winter it can be hard. 2. Sometimes the cafeterias are empty, and sometimes their crowded. 3. Bring your I.D. card with you if you have a meal plan, if you don't bring you will have to pay to get in and eat. Remember this: Your I.D. is the most important thing you can carry with you besides your books You will NEED it to get in you Hall past certain hours of the day, upstairs in the hall, and to eat on your meal plan. Don't forget it. EVER.

    UNT has many places around it to eat as well as more places to eat on campus since the Union just finished up. Very diverse food options!

    There are a lot of options to choose from on Campus and with the Union coming soon by the end of the 2015 Fall semester, it will be even better! Not to mention, the surrounding places to eat that provide a lot of variety. Down the road, there are always new places opening up and within 5 minutes from campus.

    UNT is so close to big cities like Dallas and Fort Worth which is definitely a big help to start exploring different types of food. However, don't worry if you can't afford to dine out because they also have the widest variety of foods at their cafeterias.

    There are 5 dining halls/cafeterias at UNT: Bruce, West, Victory, Maple, and Kerr. All dining halls have a salad bar. The menus can be found online so you can check where you want to eat in advance. Victory, imo, has the best food. However, it's also the farthest cafeteria, as it resides on the other side of the highway (you can take a bus to get there but it stops running after 5pm). The food is well-cooked and seasoned, and they have omelettes for breakfast. I haven't eaten very often here, though, as I am not an athlete. Maple probably has the second best. It's a vegan cafeteria but the food is delicious and the paninis are delicious and they also make grilled PB&Js that are also delicious. The fruits and veggies are the freshest here as well. Bruce is a bit of a toss-up. They consistently serve mac&cheese, rolls, and rotisserie chicken if you're into that sort of thing every day. They have a sandwich line (sometimes they don't take your order correctly and give you rye instead of sourdough and stuff like that) and a pizza/pasta line (50-50 chance that the pizza is dry or the pasta is overcooked) and a vegan bar that varies (breakfast for dinner on Thursdays is the best though). You can usually find something you want to eat though, as they serve a lot of food. Kerr is like Bruce except it's the only cafeteria open after 8pm and on weekends. The desserts are better imo and they also have ice cream. West has home-style food. Apparently their fried chicken is really great, which they serve on Wednesdays. I've enjoyed the food their at the times I've been there, but it's probably the smallest cafeteria with the least amount of options. Surrounding restaurants within 5-15 minute walking distance include Jimmy John's, Subway, Chipotle, Yogurtland, a boba place, Viet Bites, Seoul Chicken, Chicken Express, Chinese Fast Food, Pie Five, Crooked Crust, Potbelly. Denton square is a short drive away (<5 minutes) and has more restaurants and food choices. The Student Union is opening in Fall 2015 and will have more places to eat as well. Coffee is sold at several locations on campus and there is a Starbucks.

    This is the only campus I've visited that had a purely vegetarian dining hall. The dining halls are buffet style so if you're a stress eater this is the perfect place to study, although they play jazz music kind of loud in the dining halls so bring some headphones if you do. Every once in a while they'll have free food in giant white tents near the library

    Food is good. Kerr Hall and Bruce Hall are always reliable. You'll always have fresh vegetables/greens and you'll most likely always have a choice of meat or chicken. There's also a vegan hall!

    I wasn't in a sorority but my roommate was. I was actually really surprised how expensive they were to get into. She paid into the thousands for her dues.

    Greeks live in opulent, dedicated chapter houses on the outskirts of campus, and have their own parking. Although I am not Greek, I have seldom seen them around campus. For the most park, UNT Greeks tend to keep to themselves. There's a new Greek Life Center on campus, although I'm not sure what for. Perhaps if more of the students were interested in going Greek it would be relevant.

    The IFC really rule this campus but you can also catch the greeks on the strip propmoting events of there's or even strutting. It's pretty fun seeing all of them doing chants or steps.

    The greek life at North Texas isn't as big here as say A&M or UT, but there are several fraternities and sororities here, so you can still be involved in greek life.

    The Greek communities are alive and well in Denton. Sorority and fraternity rows with gorgeous buildings are plentiful and their involvement in the community and the campus is highly visible.
