What Students Are Saying

3.82 Average Rating
The food is great here , especially around the holidays . But you know what they say ! ain't nothing like grandmothers cooking ! They give you a nice time frame to get something to eat and also they give you flex dollars for after hours when you want a late night snack and when you don't have any more flex, you can go downstairs to the 7 eleven to get a snack .
Courtney from Saint Louis, MO
Chicago food goes beyond the deep dish pizza and hot dogs. Columbia is centered in the Loop, surrounded by every type of cuisine from any culture you could think of. Thankfully, there is also a gym to work it all off in.
Stephanie from Brooklyn, NY
Columbia is in downtown Chicago, the food is no joke. Whatever you want, you can get. And it's all so good.
Selena from Orlando, FL
Not everyone is required to have a meal plan so it can get expensive to eat without one. But there's a Trader Joe's and Jewel within walking distance so just get used to cooking for yourself. Toppers every night might be fun for a week but it gets old fast.
