Student Responses to Review Topic: Food And Dining

    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!

    Dorm food is what it is. It honestly depends on the person whether they like the food or not but in my experience food has been alright until now. Dorm food can get a little boring and repetitive at times but ultimately it will be satisfying. There are also plenty of great food places around Long Beach which you can resort to if you want a little change.

    You can have all the food you want, when you swipe your card. Depending on your meal plan, you can go in during meal times. There are a couple of plans that allow you to let other people in and go in whenever you want except before 7:00 AM and after 8:00 PM on a weekday. When you are in, you can have all the food you can eat. The dining hall changes the meals on a daily basis.

    The food on campus ranges in a wide variety. There are multiple places to get food such as El Pollo Loco, Subway, Sabarros, Panda Express, Beachhut, The Nugget, among other places. Dorm food is open to all students, with a fee of eight dollars to an all you can eat buffet. The dorm food is well worth it.

    I put four stars because in the dinning hall the food quality varies depending on what dorm building you reside in. The food court located at the USU (University Student Union) is my to go place. I love the atmosphere. Of course, you must purchase the food there.

    Well, with a campus bigger than three Disneylands, you can expect there to be some variety in food. Yeah, a lot of it is fast food (Dominoes, Starbucks, and Subway)...but the college is taking measures to bring in healthier options.

    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.

    There is greek life but they are not very big on campus. There isn't a greek row or huge greek parties to go to. There also aren't very many houses to choose from for the guys or the girls.

    The city does not allow all the Greek houses to live in a singular 'Greek row' which is a bummer, but the Greek community is active and thrives on campus and in the Long Beach area. Walking through campus, you'd think almost half of the large amount of students who go to CSULB were Greek as you see tons of people wearing there letters and house t-shirts and exuding Greek pride. The Greek community is extremely involved in not only partying and having fun but also community outreach/fundraising events/philanthropy.
