Student Responses to Review Topic: Food And Dining

    Food is normally great but having the same meal repeatedly becomes tiring. Sometimes it becomes easier to walk to the food places off campus just for a change.

    Dining halls are dining halls, no one ever is ever excited about eating the food. However, Loyola does a good job providing options for dietary restrictions. I also appreciate the sustainability aspect of the dining halls.

    They have dining halls in some of the dorms. Even if you live in one dorm, you are free to eat in another one. They have your typical junk food, but they also have options for vegans and vegetarians.

    De Nobili is the best dining hall. You can get custom pasta, pizza, and calzones! Damen is great for the deli, and Simpson always has tacos, cheesy bread, and Fran. Damen Food Court is delicious and has a small market as well. Staff is great in the dining halls and food court.

    The places around both campuses are awesome! There's a dozen Thai and Korean food places around the Lakeshore campus that are to die for, as well as a lot of fast food places like Five Guys, Chipotle and Epic Burger. The food in the campus dining hall is okay, to be honest it is dependent on which dining hall on campus you eat at, Lu's near Water Tower takes Rambler Bucks (the money you get to spend on food) which is great.

    Dining hall food is decent, but it gets old quickly. There's a lot of variety, but not enough that you don't get bored.

    Typical cafeteria food but you are in a food town so plenty of new food to try.

    Terrible. You're going to want to know how to cook.

    Typical college food, but eventually you can get off of a meal plan and buy your own groceries.

Student Responses to Review Topic: Greek Life

    The Greek Life on campus is thriving. I personally don't participate but I have multiple friends that continually tell me how much fun it is. They love having a group of people to regularly meet with. Our campus doesn't have Greek houses but that doesn't stop Greek Life from coming together. Each Greek group has their own charity that they raise money for. They work hard and have contributed a large amount of money to their respective charities. It is a great activity to participate in if you are interested.

    Greek life is weird in the city since there are weird rules about living together, so Greek life isn't huge.

    Greek Life is relatively new at Loyola. They are definitely noticeable but not huge like some state schools.
