    The Caf offers so many choices, no matter how picky you can be- even I found things I love (and I am extremely picky!)

    Very good food. The Caf has a wide variety of food ranging from creating your own pasta, subway-style sandwiches, grilled sandwiches, omelets, cheeseburgers, you name it! The staff is also very outgoing and fun! If you decide that you don't want to go to the caf, you are given $100 dining dollars that you can use at the Coffee Emporium (Free Trade coffee stop similar to starbucks), Currito (Xavier's Chipotle) and Subway! Currito has killer nutella milkshakes by the way!

    At the end of the day, a cafeteria is a cafeteria, but XU does it right. We have a 'home-style meal' station, soup, salad and fruit bars, a vegan station, a vegetarian station, a grill station, a sandwich station, fast food-esque station, a desert station (which includes an ice cream machine), tea, coffee, waffles, etc, etc, etc. Our caf is ranked #1 in the midwest. And if they don't have what you're looking for, you can always ask and they'll accommodate! We also use plates instead of trays because it uses less water. (And an added bonus is that it feels just a bit homier.)

    We have the best college cafeteria ever! Dining options other than the caf are limited to subway, chinese, and currito. Its pretty sad how few options there are..

    We do not have Greek life, and I don't regret it at all. It keeps everything much more community-based, with no one excluded.

    There is none, and that's one of the best things about Xavier in my opinion. People come here because they want to be legitimately involved, not to pay for their friends and party all the time.
