    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.

    The food at San Diego State is amazing. For the students that live on campus they are treated with the best food prepared by Chefs the minute they request it, with the ingredients they desire, from the option they have available. The menu changes every day. If the students do not have the time to cook, fast food restaurants are available throughout campus.

    If I'm ever hungry or just want a snack, I can just walk downstairs to the market and kitchen and get whatever I need. The kitchen is huge and the market has so many different kinds of snacks and meals you can prepare yourself. Also, there is a small kitchen inside the dorm where you can cook and bake if you want to-- this all depends on what dorm you are placed in. There are so many food options on campus. East commons has a salad bar, Subway, Panda Express, Rubios, Daphnes, Starbucks, and Vinny's Pizza-- and that is only on one part of campus! In front of the ARC (university gym) there is a Shakesmart where you can order post workout shakes, acai bowls, or any other kind of shake. All of the places I mentioned take your meal plan, which is the best part! My favorite part of the food here is the farmer's market on Thursdays. Every Thursday, there are several tents on campus that have different kinds of food from different chained restaurants! I went to Kenya, Africa a few years ago, and whenever I want to remember the food, I go to the Kenyan tent and eat sambasas! The options are endless.

    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.

    Greek life is pretty prevalent at SDSU. There's Rush week and lots of parties among both the frats and sororities. I'm not part of it, but I've heard that it can be pretty exclusive including some that exclude people based on looks which seems a little unfair. Might just be rumors, but either way, It's big on campus.
