  • People at Loyola are exceptionally helpful and caring. It is easy to talk to complete strangers. Loyola has great RA's that help students and the rooms are generally really nice.…

Student Responses to Review Topic: Food And Dining

    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!

    The food is really good at Loyola, but it can get a little repetitive at times,especially in some dining halls

    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.

    There are multiple food places outside campus as well as on campus that have pretty good dining options.

    Throughout the entire campus and local dining areas, there is a very large amount of dining options for students with all different financial and living needs. There are three individual dining halls, two which are attached to freshman dorms, and multiple campus cafes and small grocery areas for all different dining preferences. This allows students to eat both the typical college pizza meal and high quality and organic sandwiches.

    Food is great! From the meal plan food or from the many different on campus restruants you will never get tired of the food.

    Expensive meal plans with inedible food. Mertz dorm cafeteria flunked city health inspection and was closed!

    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.

    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.

    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.
