    I Love that our campus has three Starbucks on campus, perfect during finals season. It has a variety of places to eat from Chipotle, The Habit, Daphne's to a sushi bar and more other options.

    There are a lot of different dining options to choose from. The school's dining system is split into East Commons and West Commons. EC has a culturally diverse variety of Americanized-wannabe-cultural foods that are actually quite good. Rubio's is over there, as well as a new Subway, Panda Express, Daphne's and Vinnie's. WC has Starbucks, a sushi place and another sandwich deli I can't remember the name of because I spent most of my time in EC. There's markets everywhere with different varieties of food, the Student Union just opened with a Cici's Pizza Place, The Habit, and Chipotle, and there's two buffet style eateries. There's something for everyone, and if it's not on campus, it's nearby in the College Area!

    Food at SDSU is great because you have a wide variety of dining options. These dining options include a dining hall, markets, and restaurants all on meal plan.

    The food on campus is excellent. There is now a Subway, as well as Panda Express, Starbucks, Daphne's Greek, and Rubios. The new student union has Habit burger grill and will be adding Chipotle. The food is not at all cafeteria food; it's well made and affordable for college students.

    A decent amount of choices across campus and within walking distance. Good hangout and study spots. Most average around $7 a meal.

    There is no real way to eat healthy unless you are a rabbit. Sort of disappointed in the food. It sounds so exciting and fantastic, until you get here, that is.

    Greek Life at SDSU is thriving and the school actively works to make sure all Greeks succeed. Greeks often excel in academics, community service, leadership, and social life at SDSU.

    if you aren't in the greek life here then you are missing out on approximately 80% of the experience so start saving your money now because this is expensive and mom and dad will more than likely not be down to pay for you to party (They just don't understand)

    Greek culture is huge at this school. We are home to over 20 different sororities and fraternities. I recommend joining one if you want to get the full effect of SDSU.

    Greek life is extremely prominent on campus, for those who anticipate joining a sorority or fraternity, there are plenty of options. The frats, however, have problems with drinking and occasionally one will find itself on probation. Hazing is, also, an unspoken problem.

    The most fun you will have at college. The administration isn't too happy about the frats, especially hazing, but its definitely something to look into.
