    The food is awesome! I am eating some hot wings right now in The Billiken Club and Grill. There's also a Qdoba, Chick-Fil-A, Panda Express, Panera Bread, and a Subway. If you don't like any of those foods, there's so many other places outside the campus that you will definitely enjoy such as McDonald;s, Rallys, or Jimmy Johns subs.

    Panera, Starbucks, Chik-fil-a, Panda Express, Qdoba, Subway, Jamba Juice, and so many more chains making their way to campus, as well as university facilities. Local food is great as well.

    I like that SLU offers FLEX dollars along with meals. You have the option of how many meals you want with varying amounts of flex dollars per week 8 with $480, 10 with $350, or 14 with $130. The flex dollars are basically like dollars except of course they have the face of a Biliken. After your freshman year you can choose a meal plan with $140 flex dollars and no meals. The meals plans can be changed at semester.

    Since my freshman year (2010), the food options have steadily gotten better and better. The dorm food made me sick coming in, but now it is tolerable. However, there are tons of alternatives on campus, and plenty of great college-aimed restaurants within safe walking distance as well.

    The food is good, considering that it is dining hall food. There is even Terra Ve, for vegetarians.

    The food is bland and repetitive but it a good concept and there are good food places on or near campus.

    SLU has a lot of variety of food. They use the program called Chartwells that provides great food all around campus. You also have more popular options such as Chic-fil-a and Subway.

    I am wanting to join a sorority. I've been to numerous meetings and they are very persuasive and exciting! It's an excellent choice!

    20% Greek, but no houses here due to Saint Louis zoning laws. Instead, greeks live in their own dorm and share apartments. Events are still great and their presence can be felt very positively on campus

    Many people participate and really enjoy it, but you will definitely not be left out if you decide not to join.

    Greek life isn't super prominent. I joined a fraternity and dropped it within a year. There is no housing for the Greeks, however there is a sophomore dorm, DeMatt, that only Greek students can live in. Father Biondi was actively against Greek Life at SLU, but he just recently announced his retirement from School President.

    I am in Greek Life and have found that it provides many opportunities and connections that are useful during your time in college and after! Internships, summer job opportunities, appartments, ways to sell and buy things, connections, service, and socially, greek life has it all.

    Greek Life does have presence on campus, but not as big as you would find at bigger schools. The sororities are very large compared to bigger schools, with about 200 members in each.

    Greek life is really great here. It definitely seems to be more about the philanthrophy (there aren't houses here) because people really join greek life to make friends and just have another activity to do.
