    The food is fairly good at Carroll. They offer a wide variety at our cafeteria, with an international station, soup and salad bar, sandwich bar, pizza, pasta bar, stir fry, hamburgers, and a comfort station. The staff is usually very friendly as well. There is also the In-Between, which has food to go, such as a deli station, pizza oven, and a burger station. Most students like this place better and there is seating outside of it for them to eat it as a meal. Mondays, they have sushi, and Tuesdays/Thursdays are Chick-Fil-A. Starbucks is in the library and we have a bagel shop, Einstein's Bagels, in the Admin building.

    Caf food isn't that great and the times are pretty inconvenient. The InnBetween and Einstein's are good but aren't open very late.

    Ok, it's college food. There's an ok salad bar, a place to make sandwiches, pizza, burgers, chicken, etc. They do have the best bagels!! If you'r a vegetarian you will get so bored with the food! There are very limited options. Outside of the cafeteria, the Inn Between has really good food. Sandwiches, pizza, chicken fingers, and it's also like a little convenient store.

    There is not a lot of variety in the cafeteria. The food is not the highlight of John Carroll. The staff is very pleasant and friendly and keep the area very clean.

    The food and dining experience overall became very routine, but the food itself was pretty good. This was the only place to eat on campus besides Einsteins Bros & Bagels, but the variety of food options was okay. Pizza and salad became very boring after a while but the comfort food and international stations always had something new, which I liked. My advice would be to try eating something new everyday or mix up different options, like eating an egg, bacon and cheese on a bagel in the morning instead of just cereal or an omelette.

    Food is usually good, sometimes it needs a little changing up. I do wish that there could be other fruit besides melon, but there are apples and oranges.

    I never took part in Greek life but my roommate and many friends from this past year did join a fraternity or sorority and loved it! If you want to join one, I would recommend it based on what everyone has told me (even though I never wanted to).

    They'll say 5% of the student body is affiliated with Greek Life. It's a lie. Over half the campus is.

    About 10-15% Greek. Five sororities and four fraternities. Greek organizations don't have their own houses, but have locked floors in regular residence halls, allowing them to have their own space but still be integrated with the rest of the community. Very service based, friendly, and involved, not at all like you see in the movies. You don't have to be Greek to have fun and make friends, though - Greek life at JCU is not really exclusive like it is at some universities.

    That's one thing John Carroll strides in, many people go Greek and have fun. But it's expensive and most of them party to much.
