    sometimes the food is seasoned right and they have many varities. then other days they are slow to serve, overcook the food, disrespectful to students.

    I've only had the opportunity of eating on campus twice and both experiences did not exceed my cafeteria expectation.

    The food in the Cafe is ok. Sometimes they have good stuff on the menu and sometimes they don't. They are very expensive considering that they are catering to college students.

    The food service we use on campus is Sodexo Food Service. The food is subpar. The food is extremely expensive. I'm talking almost 10 bucks a meal expensive. I have never tasted such subpar food in my life for the prices we are FORCED to pay for it. The Student Government Association as well as other students are fighting to get Sodexo Food Service removed from the campus. The administration does not care about the quality of food we eat. They just want to pay as minimal amount of money for food and student services as they can to keep up at bay. Chicago State University is currently in an area that would be considered a food desert. The university definitely has the money to bring other food stations, restaurants, and choices to our university. However, they refuse to!

    The university is in the process of changing vendors for cafeteria. The current contract is about to expire and we are looking for a separate entity that can provide better and healthier services.

    You find out a lot about Greek life by talking to members. They do a lot, they just don't advertise about it all.
