    Awesome selection of food. It's cafeteria style, but all you can eat. Make sure you get a meal plan. Hours of operation are okay.

    The food here is great, it is a buffet style eating so you can always go back for more with plenty of option! As far as the town food goes there are a bunch of mom and pop restaurants that serve up some of the best cuisine!

    The food and dining here at Sul Ross is good. You have a main course option as well as several other options. It is a buffet option so one swipe of your ID and you can get as much as you like.

    The University center dining has a great variety of food. They offer a salad and pizza bar as well as a vegetarian selection. There is a main course section and for those who just want a quick burger or sandwich that is also available. Their hours do not always work with scheduling though, which is why I'm not giving this a 5 star. They are open for breakfast from 7 to 9 M-F, 9 to 10 on Saturdays and from 11:30 to 1:00 on Sundays. For lunch they are open from 11 to 1:30 M-Saturday, and for dinners they are open from 5 to 7 M-F and 5:30 to 7 on Saturdays and Sundays. The lunch hour conflicts for many students depending on how their schedules work out and those students don't get to have lunch on the days that their hours conflict.

    I love the food it is a buffet, A lot of the times students try to stay away from that Freshmen 20 or whatever which is when you gain like 20 pounds your freshmen year. So the dining hall provides a salad bar. Now if you just want to eat pizza or burgers they have that too!! Dont forget about the dessert.

    On campus food is good and there a variety of food choices to choose form. The C-store is the best thing on campus.

    The Meal plans are not the best. I feel as though you pay too much for such little quality in food, now I'm not expecting five star dining but I also expect food to not be just pasta all of the time and left overs from two or three days ago

    There is no Greek life per say on campus. Our "Greek Life" is actually the honor societies such as Kappa Delta Pi and Sigma Tau.

    There is no Greek Life. If that is a deal breaker then steer clear. If it doesn't really matter I suggest you try the school to see how it fits.
