Reviews Dorm Life

  • The dorms themselves are old, gross, and cramped but they create a very close community of students who live on campus and that makes for a lot of new friends,…

    The food choices on campus are decent. There has been some awesome additions this year and that's promising for the future. But overall, I would much rather eat off campus or make my own food.

    There's a bunch of chains on campus like Panda Express, Subway, Burger King, Round Table, Baja Fresh, Starbucks, and Togo's (who makes sandwiches at an incredibly slow pace). And there's also some campus exclusive places or local chains like Gyro 2 Go (which is a great value and is quite good), Good Eats (also a great value, very good sandwiches and salads, and pretty healthy), Hiraku Sushi, Saigon Bay Express, Mother India Express (they changed the menu and now it's horribly, non-authentic Indian food), the student store, and the Buzz (very good). All of the food on campus is pretty expensive (average is probably $8-$9 per meal which doesn't seem like much but it adds up). There are very limited healthy options and it's even worse if you're vegan. The lines to get food are always extremely long from 11:30 to 2 but most of the food places on campus are quick to get through the line. The bigger problem is finding somewhere to sit so you can eat! None of the food options are open very late, I think the latest place closes at like 8pm so if you're here late studying, bring food from home or get food from off campus (Postmates delivers in Sacramento now and they service the CSUS area). If you bring food from home to eat regularly, I recommend bringing food that does not have to be heated up, because the number of microwaves available is very limited and the lines are always quite long to use them.

    Your typical fast food places are here-- Panda Express, Burger King, Round Table. But there is also Saigon Bistro, which is a really nice go-to place if you're looking for something eat before heading into the library.

    The cafeteria food is so good! And there's also so many restaurants close by to choose from as well.

    Food is good on campus, although I wish there was more variety- for instance there are two Panda Express locations. I don't understand at all why we need two of them instead of having another, different place to eat. Also, you will quickly run out of money constantly eating on campus, so it is better and healthier to bring your lunch.

    There are a lot of food chains on campus. Panda Express, Subway, Starbucks, Togo's, Burger King, Jamba Juice, Round Table, and some other smaller food places not including the dorm dining common ad the market next to it. You'll never be out of food options on campus.

    The food here is wonderful! If you are grabbing something in the cafeteria or going to Starbucks. They have a wide variety of choices and I have never had a bad experience with any of the employees. In fact, I'd go as far as to say I have befriended some on accident.

    There's lots of it. You're not pressured into joining, but don't be surprised if you find Greek letters written on the ground in chalk.

    Greek Life is great. I myself am part of the Alpha Phi Chapter on the campus and would not trade this experience for anything. Its worth it and definitely helps you create friends that last a lifetime.

    Theres too many sorority and faternity clubs here to mention but if your interested in joining one i'm positive that you'll find one that suits your interest. Don't worry about getting into the one you want to join either because they except more than 80% of their applicants.

    The Greek Life can be fun but it is ridiculous expensive. If your ready for the financial burden, definitely join because it will make your college life worthwhile.

    Personally I do not have much input on this; however, from everyone I know who has been involved, Greek Life provides a wonderful outlet and family-oriented feeling.
