    There are a lot of on campus places to eat but if you don't like your options there are plenty more off campus. Just walk down the street and you'll find McDonalds, Carl's Jr., Chipotle, the Habit, etc.

    The food and dining available on campus is very diverse. You have all types of food from American, to Asian Cuisine and to Hispanic. I personally have a favorite for American food but have definitely tried all different types available on campus. I think CSUN does a pretty good job balancing and offering lots of food and dining on campus.

    I truly enjoy the cafeteria food is great if you choose to stay in the dorms without kitchens, and the prices are reasonable.

    We have a subway, panda express, and burger king. Those are the brand name restaurants that we have on campus. CSUN also has their own cafeteria and several cafes that serve their own food. The pizza from one of the cafes on campus is so good. We also have, Juice it up, which is our version of Jamba Juice and it's very good as well.

    The food on campus is like diner food but it is really cheap and they have places like panda express right on campus. Best part is that none of it is taxed.

    It is really not like everyone thinks. We take grades really seriously and we always have something fun planned for everyone to do.

    The school also offers numerous sororities and fraternities. During fall break, they all hold rush week, which gives anybody the opportunity to rush which is basically to mingle with the sororities or fraternities you wish to be a part of in hopes you receive bids afterward. A large percentage of our school population belongs to the Greek system and each person has their own experience, but they absolutely love it. You build lifelong connections and friendships.

    The Greek Life is huge at CSUN. Even if you are not in a fraternity or sorority, it feels as if you are because of all the people representing a certain Greek house. Whether it be a jacket or a hat or a backpack, you see it everywhere on campus. Members of Greek life also have meetings on campus especially outside the Oviatt Library Lawn.
