  • Aug-03-2014 I am researching this school and have visited the campus

    As most other colleges the food is not the best, but a dining plan isn't going to keep me from going to a school.

    I'm a commuter so I would not know about campus food (although I have not heard good things about it), however, there is PLENTY of delicious food all around Boston to enjoy. I highly recommend Snappy Sushi and Georgetown Cupcake...both on Newbury Street. There is plenty of Chipotle and Panera to enjoy as well!

    If you don't eat meat then you are limited to choices.

    YESSSS! It has good food on campus, but then again, all of Boston is your campus. You are located literally in Downtown Boston, there are so many restaurants literally propped across the street from your dorm, it is ridiculous. You will never lack in the food department. EVER!

    Food and Dining services are really nice at Suffolk U. The only problems can be price of food (a little expensive sometimes) and hours of the kitchens (limited later on at night, especially weekends). But, otherwise places like the 73 Cafe, Donahue Cafe, Sawyer Cafe, Miller Res Hall Cafe and partnered locations (of which there are many scattered throughout downton Boston) are great to get anything from a quick bit to eat to a full meal. 73 is my personal favorite, the food and the staff are amazing.

    The salads and sandwiches they make are the best. They also sell snacks that are pretty good. If you don't like the food in the cafeterias there also is variety places you can eat near-by.

    Not much of a greek life. I was disappointed a bit too, but you soon get over it, because it offers so many things that are much cooler.

    I never been apart of the Greek Life. However Suffolk does have Greek life for both guys and girls, and from what I've herd from my friends who are a part of Greek life. Its really easy to join and a very rewarding experience.
