    Fair. Breakfast would be the best meal, but if you don't get to the cafeteria within the first 45 minutes of opening, your choices are slim at best. Lunch and dinner are great the first few weeks, but become repetitive after that. A lot to be desired.

    From my first year to the last, the quality of food dramatically increased, however, so did the price of food. The two available places to get food were only open at inopportune times of the day, and not on sundays. Which is awful for students who live on campus.

    The cafeteria may not be the highest quality food, but it is always consistent and isn't too bad as long as you don't have to eat it for every meal.

    The dining hall is the best place for a student to be. The food is in more times than none exotic. You could have a little of anything.

    The dining hall food isn't bad. It is a all you can eat type of system. Pretty Good.

    The food on campus is delicious. If you would rather not eat on campus, there are great restaurants nearby.

    The cafeteria food is edible, sometimes good, often not so good. But there is always a wide variety of foods to pick and The Grill if one does not like the cafeteria.

    McMurry has the Village Market, which serves as its regular cafeteria with a large buffet and salad bar with at least 3 choices of meals on weekdays (usually only 2 on weekends). There will always be pizza and hamburgers, but every day has a different dish ranging from pork chops to spaghetti to barbecue sandwiches. The breakfasts are great, featuring a big Belgian waffle maker and a sweet lady ready to take your order for breakfast burritos and omelets, among the other choices like donuts and cinnamon rolls. Also, it's great to have homemade desserts every day, not to mention a Blue Bell ice cream bar, with new flavors every week. The Sports Grille serves as a restaurant, with certain sandwiches and burgers you can order, and Java City is the university's personal coffee shop with frozen treats as well as warm, and bread and scones available for purchase.

    No nation-wide fraternity/or sororities, however, the school and the people in this school take the abilene based groups very seriously!

    I am a freshman about to go into my second semester so I am only just about to experience Greek Life! But I know it doesn't fit the stressful stereotypes that are found at bigger schools. There is definitely sisterhood and brotherhood, but at a smaller university there is less competition and therefore less pressure to do things that would put you outside of your comfort zone in a bad way.
