    There's a variety of food places to choose from in the campus itself, which is great if you want to try something new. The only issue is that the food on campus is more expensive than outside the campus, but that's to be expected.

    The cafeteria looks decent. Unsure if there are actual restaurants/cafes like Starbucks here

    They have a good selection of dining options to choose from from fast food to the food truck they provide. There's also upscale restaurant located on campus that's run by students.

    It gets tiring after a while, eating the same thing over and over again, but overall Los Olivos, the commons, are very accommodating to the various cultures on campus. They recognize that different cultures have different breakfast meals and provide that diversity in their meals. They have accommodations for vegetarians and, or vegans--menus and calories are given; there is also fast food on campus.

    the student center has a lot of chains and small "grab and go" places. prices are reasonable, and you can use meal plan points. restaurant stands are delicious.

    overall, the food on the entire campus is average. there are the typical, subway, starbucks, qdoba, pete's coffee, einstein's bagels, panda express, etc. there is a really nice restaurant which is more for visitor's i think... 5 star dining at $30 a person.

    Food is very enjoyable. All you can eat buffet at los olivos is worth the pay most times. Other places are good as well, but los olivos is worth the best.

    The food at Los Olivos, the dining hall, is buffet style offering different types of foods from the typical sandwiches and salads, to American foods and Mexican foods. There is a taqueria, Mongolian noodles station, and the Comfort Food Zone. The chicken nuggets are bomb here! Aside from Los Olivos, students also have the option of eating at the Denny's and Einstein's Bagels. At the Bronco Student Center, there is a Subway, Peet's Coffee and Tea, Qdoba, and Freshens. At the Marketplace there is a Panda Express, Taco Bell, Carl's Jr. and Jamba Juice. Scattered across campus are Starbucks and Pony Express markets.

    The campus has a lot of dining options for both on campus and commuting students such as at the Bronco Student Center and the campus center (have recognized fast food choices: Subway, Qdoba, Panda Express, etc), the Poly Trolly (campus food truck), farm store, Dennys, dining hall, Kellogg West (campus restaurant) and other small convenient type shops where you can pick up a snack. The on campus food from the dining hall is not bad and offers a lot of different choices throughout the week for students who eat there daily. Kellogg West is upscale eating where you dine in style and have quality meals (reservations are required).

    There are fraternity's and sorority's, rushing is fun, but the Greek life is not a HUGE thing on campus. It is there for those who are interested, though.

    We have plenty of greek life here. Rush week is popular and there's a lot of people that get involved with frats/sororities. The frat houses are scattered around Pomona and they do host events and parties.

    I'm not in a sorority so I'm not too well-informed on this topic, but they are very prevalent. I have a couple of friends in fraternities and sororities and they seem to be really committed and enjoy it. The only thing is, unlike other campuses, we're not allowed to have official houses for each sorority or fraternity, like in the traditional sense where you see in movies.

    Joining Greek life is like joining a second family away from hope, everyone helps you get through everything and its an awesome way to make lifelong friends and connections.

    Go through the recruitment process. Even if you aren't going to join, at least meet people during recruitment and find out if you really want to join or not. Going Greek was one of the best decisions I made at Cal Poly.

    Although I have never participated in geek life activities, I know that the involvement and energy is amazing because the students care so much about their school and their peers.
