Student Responses to Review Topic: Food And Dining

    Food depends on where you go. There's a lot of places to go on campus. Some of the dining halls have a theme to them (italian, 50s diner, etc.), so that makes for an interesting dinner each night. However, sometimes the food is a bit questionable looking, on those days I tend to revert back to Lucky Charms as a safer option. Also, don't plan on grocery shopping if you come here. The closet grocery store is a long walk away from campus and an equally long bus ride.

    Marquette has a wide variety of dining hall options throughout campus that cater to people of different eating interests. The most significant downside is that the options become much more limited on the weekends.

    Because my residence hall has the dining hall downstairs, I am extremely satisfied. They have a variety of food and the staff is very nice. The cheeseburgers in Cobeen are the best!

    The hours for the dining halls are a little annoying, but once you get used to it, its pretty good. The food itself is good at certain spots for certain types of meals. One place for breakfast, another for lunch, and so on.

  • I am accepted here and planning to attend soon

    I am a commuter so I would not know, however, Marquette is surrounded by tons of cool restaurants like Soblemans and some other popular places downtown

    Some dining halls are really gross, and others are really good. I believe two of them are buffet-styled, which is great, and you can bring a container with you and grab some food for late nights when the halls are closed. There are restaurants and take-outs right in campus, which gives you a variety.

Student Responses to Review Topic: Greek Life

    I recently joined a sorority on campus and have to admit that it's much more exciting than I thought it would be. I have already met a lot of women in my house and can't wait to meet more. MU focuses a lot on Greek unity, and encourages support for all Greek events across campus.

    Greek life is pretty small here with only about 10% of the student body involved. Rush is during second semester but there are plenty of events sponsored by Greek life for people to get involved early.

    Greek life is small at Marquette, but it is still present. Fraternities and Sororities exist, but there is no distinct Greek Row.

    It isn't hard to get into Greek Life if you want to join. The fraternities and sororities are much more relaxed than most other schools.

    Greek Life is on the rise at Marquette and if that is something you are interested in you will definitely be encouraged to join. If Greek Life isn't your thing, no need to worry as Greek Life only makes up 6-9% of the student population. The opportunity to meet people and have fun new experience is available with Greek Life at MU.

    Greek Life isn't huge at Marquette but it definitely is here. Around 9% of the student body rushes which you can do starting the spring semester of your freshman year. Greek Life is mainly what you make it here.

    Not too big, not too small. Just right if you are interested, but you defiantly don't have to be in Greek life if you go to Marquette . I believe the percentage of students is like 12% involved in it or something like that.

  • I am a current student here

    While I am not a part of the Greek life on campus, there are numerous sororities and fraternities to join at Marquette. The best part about them is that students that do not participate are not made to feel inferior or that they are missing out. Greek life is there, but it does not dominate the Marquette social scene.
