Student Life

What to know about eating on campus, where to get some exercise, and how to become involved at Luther all while staying close with those back home.

  • What activities are provided on campus and in the residence halls?

    Students have numerous social opportunities available to them: RAs provide monthly activities to build community and friendships among floor members; Student Activities Council offers films, comedians, concerts, dances, and lectures each weekend; Recreational Sports offers countless intramural sports activities for all levels of competition. And the Performing Arts Committee presents a full-year concert series with traveling professional artists. Residence halls also have recreational equipment (volleyball court, ping-pong, foosball, billiards, air hockey, board games, etc.) unique to each building.

  • Where do I eat and what are the meal plan options?

    Dining Services provides all students and their guests balanced meals at reasonable costs. Students may choose from a number of board plans, all of which contain Dining Dollars. Dining Dollars can be used anywhere that you can buy food on campus, including Marty's, Oneota Market, Sunnyside Cafe, the C-Store, Nordic Brew, Peace Brunch and the CAF.
