  • I honestly hated the dorms. I'm very introverted and shared a room with two other girls. I liked them both, but it was a little too much to make a…

  • Aug-04-2014 I am a current student here

    A meal plan comes free with housing, and unlimited food is only $750 for the year. When food is this cheap I tend not to complain about much else.

    Dining hall food is mediocre at best, but on campus dining options aren't bad and the restaurants around campus vary from disease-ridden to absolutely amazing good (with most being at the latter end of this spectrum). You will certainly never be bored with all the options for food in Berkeley, from burgers to pizza to Korean barbecue.

    Berkeley dining halls are known for their good food, but outside of that the city of Berkeley is known for its incredible food.

    I've been to my fair share of restaurants around campus. We have pretty great cafes/brunch places.

    Dining options are pretty good. Not too much late night options so just keep easy munchies on hand.

    I definitely encourage everyone to join. It was the best decision I ever made.

    Rushing is one thing everyone recommends. Everyone should rush for the experience, and then if they don't want to commit to Greek life they don't have too. If Greek life interests you there are plenty of options so you're bound to find one you like.

    Great thing to get involved in if you like to party. Allows you to meet a ton of people and offers affordable living arrangements right next to campus.
