  • May-08-2017 I am a past student here

    The food is somewhat decent on some days. Like all dorm food, it gets pretty boring because of it's lack of tremendous variety.

    I agree with Niche in that food and dinning of Illinois Tech is being graded C. According to statistics, 70% of student body say food served here is not their favorite. Therefore, Illinois Tech needs to upgrade its food and dinning services to get higher recognition not only in academics but also in healthy diets.

    with a variety of places on campus and diverse choice of meal plans, illinois tech has options for every student. students have a voice in the food being served, as there are committees and surveys that meet and are taken as to give students the opportunity to change dining services to meet their needs.

    Everyone complains about the cafeteria food, but that is to be expected at pretty much every university. It is not bad, but the meal plans can be costly.

    The food and dining at IIT is a also a 5 star. I rate this a 5 star because the choices are vast. In the dorm, you get a meal. While in campus, there are many canteens and mess hall with different kind of food choices.

    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.

    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.
