  • The dorms are pretty nice, especially the new suites (Rauenhorst and Morrison). There is a low-key, quiet vibe to the campus which is relaxing, but there is always stuff going…

    The food at St. Kate's is better than High School food! The food is different everyday, they try to incorporate international foods to throw some variety in there. Some meals include hamburgers, pasta bar, omelets for breakfast, sandwich area, etc. It is easy to healthy because there are healthier alternatives for each meal, plus the salad bar. We also have a little bistro next to the dining which is nice and serves pizza, smoothies, and such. All in all the food tastes good, I would have to say breakfasts there are the best!

    There are two dining cafeterias. The Pulse is the most popular where students buy coffee, smoothies, baked goods, pastas, pizzas, and other stuff handmade. It is somewhat pricey, but the food is delicious. The other cafeteria offers a select variety of food from burgers to gluten-free to sushi to sandwiches, etc.) And then there's the market place where girls go for chips, ramen noodles, candy, drinks, cereal for quick pick-ups.

    The food in the university is amazing!! They have everything from sushi to fettuccini. The dining rooms are huge and have a lot of space for you to eat, do your work or chat with a friend. It is very nice to just hang out to with a cup of coffee or whatever you like.

    The food is okay. Burgers and chicken sandwiches w/ fries are often offered on a daily basis. Some food can be very questionable like this one meal of cheesy, bacon, onion grits with shrimp and fried onion strings. When food like that is presented, it makes you wonder if they create food for a woman's pregnancy cravings.

    The food served in the Cafeteria and the Pulse is good but becomes repetitive over time. Dining services are good about offering vegetarian and vegan options, generally, and focus on local food whenever possible. Desserts are a specialty at St. Kate's, so you can expect something good if you have a sweets craving. Students in the dorms are required to purchase a meal plan specified by year. The plans give points instead of meals, and do not roll over to the next semester. Completely overpriced and annoying.

    When I attended a tour of the campus our tour guide was asked if there were any sororities on campus and I believe we were told that they are not. I personally like this because the itself school focuses on positive aspects that greek life provide and what I (as an older student) view as less important (parties etc) are not done.

    Lambda Sigma Tau is a service sorority that is active within the community at St.Kate's. The sorority color is red which makes pledging quite fun. You get to bond and grow close to a sisterhood in service. Many people take part in this sorority and attend fun events and meetings with other sororities as well.

    There is technically a large sorority (80 new pledgers this year), but they are not based on the St. Kate's campus due to some poor incident a long time ago.
