    The cafe area is nice but most food options are typical of a cafeteria and are not the most healthy. The good thing is that there is a target and trader joe's close enough to walk to and pick up some healthier options.

    The food is overpriced and sub-par. Meals average about $7 in the cafeteria. The coffee-based drinks are also terrible unless you order plain black coffee. One pro is the variety of vegetarian-friendly meals. Bring your own lunch or check out places to eat around Roosevelt, such as Dairy Queen or Panera (both within a block).

    The quality of food at the Wabash Building can also vary. It all depends on what they are having that night. There will always be pizza, a sandwich station, and a grill available, but they cook a different entree for lunch and dinner every day. Also, there is a good selection of to-go items.

    Food here can be better but there is one secret cafe that allows students to use their student ID card to pay for better tasting meals.

    The food is pretty delicious! They have a few different options there. The cafeteria is kind of small and is one of the areas that has bridge that combines the two academic buildings together. But there are flat screens, entertainment (sometimes), and socializing!

    The food in the cafeteria on the 2nd floor is inviting and the cooks are experts. There's even a private brand coffee, made by Intelligentsia, a Midwest coffee brewer.

    Not the greatest. This school is not a traditional school. So don't expect much.

    Greek Life each organization has a different set of values philanthropy & service, leadership, and friendship. In addition, membership in a fraternity or sorority extends beyond your college years; joining is a lifetime commitment.
