Student Responses to Review Topic: Food And Dining

    There are two main dining halls on campus, one on each side of campus. There are also various other options for using meal swipes such as grab it and bag it which are two stations where you can get food on the go. Overall, the food is what you would expect of a college dining hall. It is not outstanding, but it is not horrible either. There are a large variety of options as well as options for people with dietary restrictions.

    There are plenty of options, but the dining halls can get old after a while. It only makes it worse if you complain with your friends about it, because you focus on all of the negative. The cost of the meal swipes (~$15) is almost never worth it, especially at lunch places like Bag it and Grab it, but at least you have quick, accessible food during the day.

    The dining halls aren't awful. Some days I really enjoy the food, and some days i don't. Overall, it's alright - and I'm pretty picky.

    I may be picky because I would consider it to be true that I live to eat rather than I eat to live. Case is contracted with a company named: Bon Appetite who serves all of the dining halls and food choices on campus. In my opinion there are too few places that a student can eat at with what is called a 'meal swipe' which is what the money spent on our dining plan goes to. There are plenty of places to eat but unfortunately must be paid for with cash or our 'Case Cash' which is just cash that we converted to Case form.

    The dining halls have a variety of options with the meals changing on a daily basis, but you'll quickly get sick of the food. All the dining in campus buildings are run by the same company so the food doesn't change all that much. However, there are plenty of options in Uptown (short walk from the Quad and dorms) and a few late night options for a nice change from the dining halls. Of course, a farther trip to Little Italy or ride downtown provide even more options.

    Graced with good on and off campus dining, the food close and within Cleveland will provide more than enough variety for not only four years of college, but potentially a lifetime. Case has two great dining halls, a Denny's (open late), their own restaurant, a grill, quick grab-and-go options, and they are looking to expand within their new students' center. Also, Little Italy and Coventry are within walking distance, and downtown is a simple and easy bus ride away.

    There are quite a lot of options available for students. Case Western has a meal plan that is a swipe system. Students buy how many swipes they want a semester. These swipes go towards the main dining halls (Leutner, Fribley) and also restaurants (L3, Denny's). Leutner and Fribley have quite a lot of options available. Pasta, Sitr-fry, Salas bar and Hamburger/Hot-dogs/Fries are available daily. Other stations include the home table (home-cooked food) and a station that varies daily (tacos, pho, etc). Fribley has similar items while also having unique food such as sushi. People are usually satisfied with the wide variety of food options and quality of food/taste. In case students are hungry late in the evenings and don't want to spend money, L3 and Denny's also accept meal swipes. They provide students with their midnight munchies.

    Although a lot of students do participate in greek life it is by no means necessary in order to have a social life. There is no division on campus between greek and non-greek students. Moreover, even those students in greek life have friends in other fraternities and sororities.

    Currently, about 35% of campus is Greek. This is partially because the community within Greek life is very strong. Although there are parties and everything, Greek life is not about that, whatsoever. Here, it's about the values we hold, what we can give to the community, and how we can grow every single one of our members. There are many things catered toward Greek students on this campus, since there are so many, including Greek InterVarsity and an AWESOME Greek Week!

    Greek life at CWRU is pretty prominent through seeing their fundraising efforts and events across campus. Students in Greek really focus on their philanthropy and helping others and hope to raise a lot of money and awareness for various causes. Greek life at CWRU don't really face any problems. They know how to have fun and also focus on their goals.
