    The food and dining at Rockhurst gives you many options. You can choose to go to the Pub, Planet Sub, Starbucks, or the Dining Hall if you are on campus. If you aren't feeling campus food, you can always make a quick trip to many restaurants in the area including Chipotle, Yogurtini, Pizza 51, Oklahoma Joe's, and many more delicious Kansas City eats.

    Food and staff are great, however, it is better to shop for food elsewhere and eat at home rather than the cafeteria.

    Three different places to eat on campus. Something is always open until midnight. Variety of food.

    The food is not as bad as people say college food is. There are lots of choices and three different places to eat at. There are always ways to make the food healthier, plus we are working on even more.

    Food is decent, coming from someone who has experienced three different college meal plans. They have a lot of choices. There's a Planet Sub, Starbucks and The Pub, which is like an American burger restaurant type place. Then there is the Caf, which is your average college cafeteria. They work off of points, which is also nice because you're not spending an entire meal if all you want to buy is a bagel.

    I am currently in a sorority and love it. I feel that most people do Greek Life, however, if one chooses not to it will not affect them socially. I currently life with 4 unaffiliated girls and one Greek affiliated.

    There are four fraternities and four sororities. They are all great ways to get involved. I am personally in Alpha Sigma Alpha at Rockhurst and it was one of the best decisions I have made here. Greek life is so much fun and really brings to close with your fellow Greeks.
