Student Responses to Review Topic: Food And Dining

    the old reviews on here complain a lot about the cafeteria, but since i'â?â?ve been here it's been fine. the caf is a two-story building with a deli on the first floor, a hot food bar and a grille on the second, and a salad bar and ice cream dispenser on both floors. on the second floor there is a crisper full of gluten-free food, and there are plenty of vegetarian- and vegan-friendly options. i would caution that the lettuce isn'â?â?t always fresh, and the beef has sometimes made me sick. some people also like the cafe at the j. c. williams center, but there you either have to pay for the food or use this system of meal-exchange points that i don'â?â?t understand.

    Honestly, everyone complains about the food. But it's one of the few things we have to complain about, so it's really not that bad. If you have allergies, be careful but don't worry. There's usually signs out saying what everything is. Also, there's a section for gluten-free stuff. The workers at the cafeteria do a great job of adding variety by having certain nights dedicated to the food of different countries (Italy, England, etc.)

    The caf is not amazing, but there is always staple foods that you can stick to.

    It has it's ups and downs. The cafeteria isn't always the best but you get the chance to 'swap' your meals a few times a week at the pub in the student center and the options there are usually pretty good.

    There is only one cafeteria on campus but we had little pubs too. The food at pub tends to not be bad but, the cafe: their bacon made me sad.

    Not the greatest and the options arent that much. It will get old. You will want to eat out. I suggest you do. Mediocre.

Student Responses to Review Topic: Greek Life

    our campus has no traditional fraternities or sororities, instead having these things called households, which are similar in function, but based around particular aspects of our faith rather than pranks, hazing and alcohol. a few sample households: - daughters of jerusalem (girls): emphasizing the jewish roots of christianity. - acceptance with joy (girls): emphasizing the seven sorrows of mary. - living stones (guys): these lovely boys are in the p.d.p. (priestly discernment program). - apprentices of st. joseph (guys): have a special devotion to st. joseph the worker. iã¢â?â?m not in any household yet, but most students pick one. while household life can really help peopleã¢â?â?s spiritual growth, be warned that some of them tend toward cliquishness.

    Households, which are similar to Greek life, are loads of fun! We also have one sorority as well, but I prefer Household Life.

    There isn't really a Greek life on campus. We do have households, though, which is a sort of Catholic brotherhood or sisterhood. In my opinion, the households at Franciscan are better than any Greek life.

    There is limited Greek life; one recognized sorority and one unrecognized fraternity. But Franciscan more than makes up for it with the extensive amount of faith-based fraternal communities known as households.
