    Food provided in the cafeteria are all vegetarian food. Despite that, the quality of food and drinks provided are pretty good.

    Since La Sierra is a Seven Day Adventist school they do not eat meat. There is a wide variety of decent cafe food to choose from.

    Have only had one meal at the schools cafeteria, and it is not the tastiest food out there. Being a Seventh-Day Adventist school, they are vegetarians and do not serve any meat.

    The Commons (Dining) offers a vegetarian meal plan to promote healthy living by eating the right diet. Health connects side by side with education. A good diet enhances a student's thinking and learning abilities. The Eagle's Nest Cafe offers more of a fast food type of food yet is still vegetarian. Even though the cafeteria offers vegetarian food, it is still of the student's discernment to choose which food to pick up from the counters. A pizza might be vegetarian but is still unhealthy, especially excess amounts.

    The food is all vegetarian, but do not get discouraged if you are a carnivore! The food is actually delicious. If you are dorming you can eat in the cafeteria with a meal plan as well as at the Eagle's Nest which serves food to order like sandwiches and pizza. For commuters, I recommend the Eagle's Nest because you just pay with cash for the price of what you are buying, rather than the $10 fee for the Cafeteria.

    La Sierra only offers a vegetarian diet which is great for vegetarians, but not for us carnivores! However, the do offer a wide range of healthy options and always perfectly ripe pineapple.

    Because of the Seventh Day Adventist church affiliation, there is not Greek life on campus. They do however have different honor societies.
