    The food at Krasa Center is pretty good. They have good buffets every day and switch it up with different kinds of foods almost every day. Also, the Café in the Kindlon building has Chick-fil-A! There's also a nice assortment of teas and a huge variety of bagels. Oh and the restaurant, Coal Ben, has pretty good burgers too.

    CoalBen's food is good, Krasa cafeteria food is nothing special. I love our coffeeshop in Kindlon Hall- they have drinks, snacks, sandwiches.

    There are two on-campus dining options for Benedictine. The first, called Krasa, consists of a buffet style cafeteria, which always has a salad and sandwich bar, as well as cereal and fast food options. There are a variety of entries and desserts that differ each day. There are plenty of beverages to choose from. There is, also, a frozen yogurt machine available with toppings. However, this food is either a hit or miss when it comes to flavor. Sometimes it is very good and other days it is extremely distasteful. The second option is a café style restaurant called Coal Ben, which has the same food items each day, with specials that vary every month or so. This is where breakfast is open, snacks throughout the day, and evening meal time to students. There are, also, Starbucks coffee beverages, smoothies, and fresh pastries available in Coal Ben.

    The food on campus is pretty good because of the restaurant that is on campus (Coal Ben). It definitely gets to be boring because it is the only restaurant on campus, but the food selection is very good. There are restaurants nearby in downtown Naperville, but you need a car to drive there (about 10 minute drive).

    We do not have greek life; however, our sports teams and programs act as frats and sororities would. They have their own houses and hosts events. Most teams, also, have a certain motto or goal in mind.

    No Greek life is one of the downfalls of BU. For those hoping to join a frat or sorority this is not the university for you.
