  • Very much like high school, except worse: you live with them. You share a bathroom with 4-5 other people if you're in Pennafort, and it's a communal bathroom if you're…

    I had the buffet once and it was good. There was a variety of foods to choose from including tacos, salads, pasta, etc. If you are not going to stay in the dorms it is not mandatory to purchase food plans.

    The dining hall is very hit or miss. You never know how the food will be, although lunch is probably the best meal of the day. We have Ice Cream Thursdays and Burger/Hot Dog Fridays, which are both great.

    I personally enjoy the food and I'm often content with whatever is being served because I know they're cooking for over 100 students and think about how many people are starving & would do anything to receive easy access to a meal.

    The food here has its up and downs, sometimes it's amazingly good and sometimes it's a total miss you just have to test your luck.

    The required meal plan if you live on campus is $600 a month and totally not worth it. The food is good but you'll get tired of it. It's not organic or local or free-range. The good news is there are hundreds of small business restaurants in San Rafael and Marin that are terrific and affordable in addition to several great health food grocery stores and farmers markets all in walking distance to campus.

    There is no Sorority or Fraternity groups/housing on campus. Everyone (like every other college campus) has their own social groups.

    I do not know much about the Greek life because I am a new transfer, however, I am aware we do have a few programs that allude to students in specific majors.
