    There are a plethora of options when it comes to food on campus. The university center offers options such as Panda Express and chic-fil-a and always have fast service. In addition, there are a number of restaurant chains such as pie five near the campus book store which are a great option if a student is on a different side of campus or driving.

    The only times that I have ate at the university were during my freshmen orientation and campus tour. The food was decent, but there are better places around campus to buy food. I usually just bring my lunch from home or wait until I get home to eat.

    Better than some other institutions I have visited; the Connection Cafe has solid choices and there is something for everybody, even if you're vegetarian/vegan.

    I've never eaten better cafe food. The deserts are great, the fruit-infused waters are great, the entrees are great, and they cater to any and every food need.

    The food on campus is ok, but definitely no luxurious. If you can go without a meal plan, I would suggest making your own meals instead.

    There is only one dining hall, and the food is not that great to be honest. Additionally, the restaurants are closed on the weekends which is quite backwards in my opinion. I use the dollars for the restaurants with my meal plan, though it is helpful that after 4 you can use a meal swipe to get your meal at the restaurants.

    I can't really say much here, since I am not part of any sorority.

    Have you ever heard of Multicultural Greek Council? I hadn't heard of it until I came to UTA. It's a great opportunity for students hoping to join a fraternity or sorority more focused toward their culture and it's WAY less expensive than National Panhellenic.

    there are many fraternities and sororities. they are all very unique. they sometime have cookouts outside the central library for students. so always carry cash with you.

    I highly recommend it. I was skeptical at first but I found the one that I belonged to and I am eternally grateful.

    Many people enjoy the Greek life here. There isn't many incidents of Hazing or crazy college initiation tasks done. Just be careful of the parties and understand that joining a sorority or fraternity costs money. Some sororities and fraternities are very low in their costs but others are very high. On a per month or per semester basis.
