    The common cafeteria has many choices of food. People only complain because it is the same variety every day. There are only so many ways you can be creative with a buffet.

    Because of the diversity of the students here, food choice are multiple. Students have the access to food from all over the world. The menu is not always the same. They change it almost everday.

    I've heard some complaints about the food. I went to the commons a couple of times and thought the food was pretty good.

    IIt Dining is very acceptable. Many are unsatisfied with our main cafeteria's menu items, but it is very considerate of different cultures and dietary needs. The food itself is also good. Unfortunately it doesn't change much, so people get tired of eating the same thing after about a week. There are so many more options for dining on campus that make this completely acceptable.

    There are meal plans that you can choose from. Most people usually pick 14 meals a week with 175 bonus points. with this meal plan, you get 14 meals a week from the Commons, the main cafeteria. There are other places on campus that you may dine in but only bonus points are applicable there so most people only eat at the commons. The food itself is typical cafeteria food, there is nothing special. there is always pizza, burgers. salad bar, and there is an asian cuisine section and a sandwich bar. nothing too exciting, it will get boring very quickly.

    The breakfast in Commons is basically the same everyday. But others are OK. SSV(dorm) has kitchen every floor, so you can cook yourself.

    IIT has an abundance of fresh and delicious food and dining options, ranging from the Commons (the main cafeteria) to Center Court (options of sandwiches, salads, burritos, quesadillas, etc made to order). The Commons has really really delicious food that serves to many different ethnicity and food preferences.

    The greek life is tame. The school cracked down on them after some incident that happened before I got here.

    Here has students from all over the world. You'll get the chance to experience different culture. Maybe get the chance to visit your roommate's country and live with them without paying for the hotel.

    The Greek Life is a very popular part of IIT. In total there are 7 fraternities and 3 sororities. Being part of the Greek Life can be helpful because you can always count on help when it comes to any kind of problem.

    There are 3 girl houses and 5 guy houses. Everyone is generally nice and welcoming. Many of these students are leaders on campus and focus more on academics than partying. Unfortunately they have a huge time commitment which can be difficult for student with heavy course loads and jobs.

    Awesome Greek life, a strict no hazing policy along with some of the houses being dry, no alcohol allowed.

    Greek life here is quieter than at most schools. It's nice though. The Greeks have the highest GPAs on campus, and we know how to have fun. There's always something going on in the quad when it's nice out!
