    Denobili’s good, but Simpson can’t make gluten-free or vegan meals for the life of them.

    The food is not very good at all. I avoid it at all costs.

    There are three dining halls on campus and each student has their own preference. The food is all-you-can-eat buffet style and has a range of options from pizza to sandwiches to salad to vegan and international/ethnic dishes. There are plenty of options for students with dietary restrictions. Outside of the dining halls there is a food court with even more things to try as well as a mini convenience store where you can buy prepackaged food or other necessities with your university dollars.

    Loyola's selection for food is very diverse. You have three dining halls that are included with a meal plan but you also have the choice of dining at different cafes on campus and our food court in Damen Student Center. Dining halls provide a home-style grill, Asian food, Taco Tuesdays, salad bars, vegan selections, pasta, sandwiches, omelette stations for breakfast or even breakfast for dinner! And don't forget about dessert!

    gross industrialized food in the cafeteria, not the best neighborhood for dining off campus as far as chicago goes. if food is a top priority, either go to a different school or make your own food.

    There are three dining halls on campus and many other dining destinations and food courts throughout both campuses. You pay for a meal plan your first two years here and in my opinion, its a little pricey for what you get, but don't get me wrong, the food is amazing! And Loyola does an awesome job of providing many varieties of foods to match almost all diets and are very accommodating to those with dietary restrictions. Also, many of our head chefs are award winning (our chef from 2014 even won Hell's Kitchen!), so the food is always amazing!

    There's a good selection, but it gets old quickly. Also, the nutrition information posted on the food items in the shops are significantly misvalued - my cup of grapes once claimed to have 25 grams of fat and 450 calories.

    Basically a non factor. There’s one or two sororities that do good work but that’s about it.

    One thing about Loyola is that we're not allowed to have frat/sorority houses ON campus. So a lot of the social part of greek life takes place around campus--at certain venues or apartment buildings that the chapters live in. But for not having houses on campus there still is a lot of greek life at Loyola.

    Greek Life is very present on campus with almost 20 groups that pride themselves on their volunteering and philanthropy events. Loyola is also a NON HAZING school, so that shouldn't scare anyone who wants to join!

    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.
