Reviews Dorm Life

  • Dorm life is great at LMU. RHA does a great job of providing resources and activities for the residents. They plan things like laser-tag trips, retreats, Lakers/Dodgers/Galaxy game tickets, art…

  • Freshman dorms are relatively large, and upperclassmen live in suites and apartments. The walk to get food is relatively short. They do a good job keeping the dorms clean, too.…

Student Responses to Review Topic: Food And Dining

  • I am researching this school and have visited the campus

    I believe one of the dining area's is called the Lion's Den (I am a prospective student, who has only visited the campus twice) that has a nice feel to it. It reminded me of the high school cafeterias you see in teen movies and TV shows (that is in fact a good thing). Had a very nice vibe, seemed like everyone knew each other and it was a comfortable atmosphere. It didn't hurt that it's part of a beautiful campus!

    The food in the main cafeteria is good the first few weeks, but gets repetitive, which is expected. There are a lot of options on campus, including a 1950's themed diner, and the Domino's that delivers to campus accepts the meal plan as payment!

    There are four places to dine on campus plus two cafes. In the main cafeteria there's a Mexican, Italian, Japanese and American food section. There's also a soup and salad bar available. Food is difficult to rate because it depends on people's taste however II love the Mexican bar. The snacker, is a small open burrito, it's only $3. I'm on tight budget so whenever I forget to pack lunch i buy the snacker. Jazzman (cafe) is on the bottom floor of the library and its open until 2:00 a.m. Very convenient when studying late!

    LMU is only the second school to become Fair Trade certified in California, highlighting LMU's dedication to social justice. There are a wide variety of food options available and even better is LMU close proximity to LA's delicious and affordable off-campus options.

    Almost all of the food on campus is cooked right in front of you instead of sitting under a lamp for who knows how long. There is a good amount of gluten free and vegetarian options and there has been a big movement for fair trade and organic foods as well.

    The food is very delicious. Iggy's Diner is my favorite. It is a 50s themed diner with American style food. I love their BLT sandwiches.

    Probably the worst part of LMU. The meal plans are constructed horribly because of you get some of the higher up meal plans with more money to spend at various locations on campus, you find out that they give you way too many community points that go to waste aka your money. The food is ok, but way to expensive as you will soon find out as the semester goes along and half way through it you have no money (lion dollars) left.

    It's present, but it's not the end-all-be-all at LMU. Most students aren't involved with Greek Life. That being said, if it's what you're looking for, it's here. A lot of the sororities are about service and charity work.

    I joined Greek Life here and I love it! The sororities and fraternities are super welcoming of new members, and they are there to help the younger students with absolutely anything! Keep in mind, there is NO hazing here whatsoever! Just harmless and fun social events and philanthropy!

    Greek life is small considering Loyola Marymount doesn't have a greek row, but it is still a good way to get involved and meet new people.

    We have a Greek Life, but the community surrounding the campus doesn't fully support our Greek Life. We don't have any Greek housing off campus where they can display their letters. But our greek life is still strong on campus.

    Greek life is present, and in certain circles it is really prominent. I personally couldn't imagine not wanting to rush, but I have a lot of friends not involved in Greek Life who are in Service Orgs, which are a lot like Greek Life without such a prominent social element.

    At LMU, I am a graduate member of a sorority. The sorority is focused on service, an ideal that is in line with the mission of LMU. There are several Greek organizations on campus. Most of them offer opportunities to volunteer and support the local community as well as the campus community. Of course, all of the Greek organizations have activities and events too that offer students the chance to meet other students with shared interests.

    There are six official sororities and five official fraternities on campus. Needless to say, Greek life is not huge at LMU. That being said, it's very fun to be apart of it. As a member of a sorority on campus, I know how beneficial membership is. The organizations put on great philanthropies and parties. I believe Greek life is definitely more focused on the social aspect, but there is a lot of hard work and charity done in each organization. Moreover, there are no official houses or a Greek Row at LMU. If you are looking for a hardcore Greek life experience, you might consider USC or ASU.
