  • I personally love it living on campus here because the dorms are in the center of the campus and the quad in between all of the dorms is very nice.…

    The food is okay, but I am satisfied with it. People do not like Sodexo for some reason. You can also find the Casa De Tigre, where they served taco bowls and burritos, Angus burgers, and more. Nesbitt serve smaller meals for the road. Red Room has a salad bar for you to create your own salad. We also have Starbucks for all you coffee people. If you don't like neither of them, most restaurants are in walking distances to just a few mile drive towards your favorite fast food joints. You have a lot of variety here, even if you do not like Sodexo.

    Our food comes from a meal service called sodexo. Its the same meal service our local hospitals have. It was pretty much hit or miss on whether or not you liked it. But there were multiple different choices to eat, deli, chinese, mexican pizza, salad bar, chicken sandwiches or hamburgers, and whatever the main meal was. I usually got something I liked overtime though.

    Ludwig isn't the best especially on the weekends when everyone goes home. Your best bet is the deli line or stir fry line. Red room isn't too bad either.

    Food is usually really good. Lots of options. Save eating out for the weekend when the food isn't as good.

    The food is not always high quality, but I enjoy the ability to eat however much I want. Also, there are good places to eat on campus besides the cafeteria.

    The food on Olivets campus is probably the most widely discussed topic. Lots of students are not huge fans of the food offered here on campus. In all honesty the food is not terrible. There are three major food dispensers on campus, ludwig the main dining hall, the red room olivets version of a chick filet, and the tiger den, olivets version of subway. All three are solid options for food. If your looking for food off campus there are endless choices in the Bourbonnais/Kankakee

    Olivet does not have any fraternities or sororities. Although there are many groups and clubs that people can join.
