Student Responses to Review Topic: Food And Dining

  • Ann from Park Ridge, IL

    Bruff is the name of the dining hall. It is very repetitive and not the best quality of food. The redeeming features of Bruff include the pasta bar, omelet bar, carving station, and anything for breakfast. The salad/sandwich bar is disappointing and the daily dinners are very hit or miss. Lots of under cooked or over cooked food as well.

    The on-campus dining hall/cafeteria, Bruff, is fine but not great. They try to have lots of options, but it's hard to provide high quality food prepared for thousands of students. After a while it gets old, and you have to branch out. The food court in the student center has food options like sushi, Panera, Freshens, and more. This option is very popular. Of course New Orleans as a city is also known for its delicious food, so the options off-campus are seemingly endless.

    Bruff was surprisingly good to be honest. And they have a slushie machine. What more you could you want? On a serious note, there's several options on campus other than Bruff, and the meal plan isn't *just* for Bruff either. And if you still can't find anything, well, you're in New Orleans. C'mon. Go try the Croissant D'Or in the French Quarter or something.

    there's a lot of options! bruff, the dining hall, has hamburgers, pizza, sandwiches, salads, etc. daily as well as different options daily. the lbc has a food court, which has a lot of options and might be a little bit of the reason why i chose tulane, oops. you can also get food at loyola, and your meal plan comes with a little bit of money to spend at off campus restaurants or order in.

  • I am researching this school and have visited the campus

    a ton of food and dining choices. the school is partnered with a few neighborhood eateries to provide deals with the students.

    bruff is not good or bad, but you will get sick of it quickly. loyola's dining hall is also open to tulane students, and has a decent vegetarian bar, but is otherwise very similar to bruff. the lbc has some nice options for lunch, but requires wavebucks or actual money. the food truck on campus is a good option for when its beautiful outside and you want to sit in pocket park or one of the many quads around campus. also bruff-to-go has really good made-to-order pasta at dinner time, which is great when you don't want to go to regular bruff (just don't lose your tokens!). on-campus dining is just ok, so you really have to go off campus to get great food.

    You can access Loyola's cafeteria, which is amazing. Bruff, our dining hall, has lots of options but is lacking in taste. You'll probably eat french fries or salad most nights. Food court is kind of expensive, but has basic options. City Diner is the best late night place; try the cheese sticks.

    Greek's a lot more laid back here than other schools because of the northerners. Apparently, Greek isn't as big in the North. Or something. Anyway, the important thing is that rush is actually in the Spring semester.

    easy to get involved with and not extremely exclusive. as someone not in greek life, i can still go to frat parties and have many friends in sororities/frats. only about 30% of students are in greek life, so you won't have issues finding people not in it if that's not your scene.

    Greek life is becoming a large part of the campus. At least half of the students rush in January.

    Hazing is found in EVERY fraternity, and many sororities. I would not recommend Tulane Greek Life. It is not centered around what Greek Life is supposed to be focussed on- very superficial.
