Student Responses to Review Topic: Food And Dining

  • Mar-12-2014 I am a past student here

    Some dining halls are really gross, and others are really good. I believe two of them are buffet-styled, which is great, and you can bring a container with you and grab some food for late nights when the halls are closed. There are restaurants and take-outs right in campus, which gives you a variety.

    Marquette provides a wide variety of options for students on the meal plan. However, the weekends are more limited in variety. Restaurants and fast food chains are good.

    I need to eat a gluten free diet and dining does not offer a lot of options. Food is typical dorm food, a lot of carbs.

  • Jan-21-2014 I am a current student here

    It's college food - not appreciated as an underclassman but becoming an upperclassman it is a gift that one will never forget.

    Although there are quite a few food options, after living here for more than a month, the options become too few quite fast. It is bearable, definitely. Students without dining plans have a relatively easy time finding grocery stores and the like, as these stores are plentiful in Milwaukee.

    Really good! The best is in Straz and Cobeen, but all of the dinning halls are really nice. Plus there's a bunch of restaurants on campus and in Milwaukee.

Student Responses to Review Topic: Greek Life

  • Nov-18-2013 I am a current student here

    Greek life is pretty small here with only about 10% of the student body involved. Rush is during second semester but there are plenty of events sponsored by Greek life for people to get involved early.

    Greek life is small at Marquette, but it is still present. Fraternities and Sororities exist, but there is no distinct Greek Row.

    It isn't hard to get into Greek Life if you want to join. The fraternities and sororities are much more relaxed than most other schools.

    Greek Life is on the rise at Marquette and if that is something you are interested in you will definitely be encouraged to join. If Greek Life isn't your thing, no need to worry as Greek Life only makes up 6-9% of the student population. The opportunity to meet people and have fun new experience is available with Greek Life at MU.

    Greek Life isn't huge at Marquette but it definitely is here. Around 9% of the student body rushes which you can do starting the spring semester of your freshman year. Greek Life is mainly what you make it here.

    Not too big, not too small. Just right if you are interested, but you defiantly don't have to be in Greek life if you go to Marquette . I believe the percentage of students is like 12% involved in it or something like that.

    While I am not a part of the Greek life on campus, there are numerous sororities and fraternities to join at Marquette. The best part about them is that students that do not participate are not made to feel inferior or that they are missing out. Greek life is there, but it does not dominate the Marquette social scene.
