The academic programs at Midwestern University often require that an extended amount of time be spent on campus engaging in coursework, labs, and exams with one hour scheduled for lunch. In addition, students may be involved in meetings with faculty, group projects, student organizations, work-study, or other activities which all occur after a full day of coursework.
Microwaves, hot plates, popcorn poppers and other cooking devices are prohibited in the residence halls. Microwaves are located in various areas in Redwood Hall. Residential students also have access to full kitchens located in the lower level of Redwood 1 and 2.
The weather in Chicago can be unpredictable at times, negatively impacting traffic and driving times. The local expressway and tollway systems can easily become congested, particularly during rush hours and bad weather conditions. Midwestern University is located near several business complexes and shopping centers that also contribute to traffic delays and congestion. Commuter students have access to microwave ovens in the Commons Grounds and 24-hour Study Room in the Library.
University and Student Organization Programs
Throughout the academic year, Midwestern University and student organizations provide lunchtime programs where lunch is provided free of charge. These programs occur more frequently during Fall, Winter, and Spring quarters, and students may find they attend at least one program per week depending on the topic.
