    Cafeteria, such as El Pollo Loco, Subway, Carl's Jr, and student dining halls, serve you quickly and do not mess up your order. Sadly, they do not have much to select and can be quite pricey those that are not fast food chain restaurants.

    The food overall isn't terrible. Some days the dining halls provide a wide selection of appetizing food, while other days the food is not as great. We have alternative food selections which are great. We have places such as Subway, Panda Express, Sbarro, a Poke joint, Carl's Jr., Starbucks, Coffee Bean, and El Pollo Loco.

    If you love coffee then you are in luck with two Starbucks and a Coffee Bean on campus. There are not a lot of food options but there is a Panda Express, Subway, Carl's Jr., and Sbarro Pizza among others.

    The dining hall food is pretty delicious! Even if you travel to the other parts of campus there is a wide variety of food or drink places, such as Panda Express, Subway, Starbucks, and many more.

    After 2 months of eating on the dining halls I'm ready to try some real food. There is not enough food choices. Be ready to hate the food after 2 weeks, but do not worry, it will make any other type of food taste ten times better.

    There are many food options on campus. You can buy food on the campus fast food restaurants or the convenience stores for snacks. The dorm dinning hall not only serves people who are dorming, but also commuters. They even offer a commuter plan for commuters who wish to eat there often.

    The dining halls are all really new, and offer a variety of meals, so you're never really stuck eating the same thing all the time. I tried a Vietnamese soup called Pho for the first time at the dorms, and on a cold rainy day at school, it was so welcoming. They also provide different meal plans, like 10 meal a week plan (the cheapest) which is convenient for the people who go home on weekends. There's the block meal plan, for those who might have visitors over, and the 3 meals a day meal plan, which is the 19 meals a week plan. Those are best for people coming from hometowns that are far away. The only problem is that the dining hall opens late on the weekends, which for me, and early-bird, was a little bit annoying, but nothing sleeping in couldn't fix!

    Greek life is a lot of fun if meeting new people, doing philanthropies, and of course partying is your thing. It is not the same as other campus' Greek life because there is no "frat row" at Long Beach State. Fraternity houses and sorority houses are located in different parts of the city but that does not stop Greek life from keeping you busy!

    I'm not part of Greek Life, but those of my friends who are, having nothing but good things to say about their Frats and Sororities. They speak highly of their brothers and sisters and ravish about the opportunities it gives them.

    I am a brother of the Pi Kappa Alpha Fraternity! I love my chapter, along with Greek Life in General. Although Long Beach does not allow Greek Row, Greek Life is great at CSULB! If you want to make life lasting bonds, learn leadership and life skills, manage time well, help others, network, among so many more things join Greek Life!

    There is not a greek lane, but sororities and frats do have individual houses spread around the Long Beach area. A few houses are a little bit past Long Beach; for example, in Signal Hill. I've heard pros and cons, but still I am looking foward in joining a sorority. The bill is expensive, but being in the greek system is worth it. They do party, get involved, most care for sister's/brothe'rs educational success, and do provide members with scholarship opportunities. The greek life here is pretty cool. In the past recruitment, there were about 500 females trying to join a sorority.

    I am unfamiliar with this, unfortunately. We do have a lot of sororities and fraternities, though. And this is, of course, due to our college being huge and diverse.

    Awesome Greek life. Not quite as big as other schools and there is no Greek Row for all of the houses, but still a great way to get involved and LOADS of fun. There are 13 fraternities and 7 (soon to be 8) sororities. Go Greek, you won't regret it :)

    Frats and sororities seem fairly prominent, and there is typically one or two per week collecting donations for different causes.
