    G'mos at the dorms is not great. There's a Panda Express, El Pollo Loco, a Burger King, and a Subway on campus. Subway is probably the best but even then not the greatest. The Arbor Grill is run by the university. It's mediocre. The Pub has some decent food and I hear they have good breakfast burritos. I don't really drink that much but it's nice for a beer between classes. There's also the Freudian Sip chain around campus. It's a coffee shop and I hear it's decent.

    The food at Northridge is delicious. I have not had an issue with any food places at school. The reason for not rating the food a five is because I have not yet eaten at every dining place in the campus. One of my favorite places to eat before class is Freudian Sip. It is a coffee shop. I love going to the library in my two hour break, grab a coffee and a cheese danish and study with friends. I also love the PUB, the sports grill. I go on Mondays and Thursdays to watch football. The best thing there is the Matador Burger it is delicious and the prices are reasonable. Overall all the prices for the food places in school are reasonable and are of great quality.

    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.

    Again: Resulted in someone's death. How can this be good? I will say that I have met some decent folk apart of Frats and Sororities, but they are the exceptions to the rule.

    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.
