    The food and dining is not that amazing but everyonce in a while clubs will give out free delicious food that has the taste of home cooked meals so you are not completely doomed to only eat the cafeteria food.

    The school is located next to Montrose blvd. which is notorious for its unique restaurants. If you're not too lazy to walk down the street you'll never be hungry ;)

    The cafeteria food is delicious and if you are not in the mood for cafeteria food; there is a Quiznos on campus and plenty of restaurants around the area.

    The only good thing about the food here is the quiznos. Crooker cafeteria is low quality food (sometimes I think that they just throw together left overs), is way to expensive, and there are not a tone of choices. I know that this is a small school, but I expect more at a private school. The convenience store is not usually stocked, and is very small. The dining area is pretty nice though.

    The food is good but it is a bit monotonous. Quiznos can always give you some variety I suppose and maybe the Homestyle line but if you're looking in Crooker for something new, don't get your hopes up. Thankfully, it's all really good! If you just can't stand it, there's literally any restaurant you can think of (or something close to it) within ten minutes of campus.

    What else is there to say? During a semester, the meal plan is included for every residents. There are two different types of plans, and that depends on which residents hall a students decides to stay in. Better yet, the school has a place called Freshens on campus where students can stop by and get a cup of coffee to start the day, fruit blended smoothies, or perhaps even an energy drink to help study. But best of all is the small grocery place inside the cafeteria. They sell both hot and cold food along with ready-to-eat meals and a variety of snacks. Students can buy cereal and milk, frozen food, and fruits too. But among these edible products, the store also sell necessity for the dorm rooms such as cleaning products, sewing kits, Neosporin, band-aids, etc. But enough of that. If residents ever feel like eating out instead, the school lies close to other restaurants that they can walk to too!

    The Knights of Columbus are the only major known Greek-like organization, though not very active and more secretive than most

    UST does not have crazy frats and sororities like you see in the movies. They have a business fraternity and a service/volunteering based sorority.
