  • Dorm life is great. For the majority of the housing on campus, you will only have one roommate with the exception of the apartments and upperclassmen choices. What I believe…

  • I am a current student here

    PLNU has a pretty good selection of food. There are always stations with burgers, pizza, sandwiches, a salad bar, and a soup of the day. There are also gluten free stations. The Mongolian station is great if you are willing to wait in the line. Omelets by Fernando are always something to look forward to. They serve a lot of variations of rice and chicken. Some things are just not good but most days it is quite satisfactory. Weekends are not great for the caf. Desserts are always amazing!

    The cafeteria is being remodeled in summer of 2017, and it was already spectacular. There is food for everyone, whether you're vegan, gluten-free, lactose intolerant, or just picky. You can download the bite app to see the menu ahead of time, just search for Point Loma Nazarene University. The caf workers are super friendly. The food is buffet-style, so you can eat as much as you want! Whenever I have friends from other schools come visit, they are always impressed with the cafeteria. There's also a coffee shop called Point Break and a coffee shop called Bobby B's, both of which can be found on the Tapingo app.

  • I am researching this school and have visited the campus

    From my experience, the caf was very crowded. It was a bit small and I wished there had been more places to sit, because my family and I had to search for seats for a little while. The food was really good, but I felt rushed and almost knocked over a few times.

    The cafeteria food isn't great, but once you find a few things you like you can know when and where to go find them.

    The food is fresh and diverse. While the cafeteria might have its good and bad food days, the basics are always available to the students.

  • I am accepted here and planning to attend soon

    I have eaten in the dining hall many times, as many times as I've visited the campus. I have never been dissatisfied with my meal or the service, and I am hard to please because I am a vegan.

  • I am a current student here

    There isn't very much Greek Life to speak of at this school. Because this school has such a sense of community, many students would feel it unnecessary to sequester themselves away into a group that only accepts a select group of individuals.
