With 6 public and 4 private dining halls, along with two massive workout facilities, it’s easy to see why the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign was recently ranked 7th healthiest university in the nation according to greatest.com.

In addition to this ranking, the University has also been awarded the National Association of College University Food Services award– meaning we have the most innovative nutrition program, best local foods, and best vegan recipe.
Twenty five percent of dining hall food is grown locally and 90 percent is made from scratch.
