    Food in the cafeteria is not awful but definitely not great. There are plenty of decent options for snacks and drinks but an actual meal is lacking at the cafeteria. The coffee carts are alright but the prices are outrageous. Starbucks is across the street and it is a lot more worth it and there are several quick options for good food across the street and at the mall.

    The cafeteria food at Saddleback is not gourmet, but it can get the job done between classes! They offer hot meals such as chicken tenders, burritos, and Chinese food. Also, vegetarian options are available such as fresh fruit or a salad. In addition, you can also purchase snacks at the cafeteria if you don't have time to have a meal. Some examples are smoothies, Muscle Milk shakes, granola bars, candy, Chex mix, etc. There is definitely a lot of variety at decent prices. Also, as a another fun way to get lunch is from the food truck that comes to campus every week. My favorite was In N Out, can't resist their burgers! Besides the cafeteria, there are many vending machines and food kiosks around campus. My favorite is the Coffee Drip. They accept cash and card and have just as many options as a Starbucks would. They offer blended, iced, and hot beverages besides coffee and also pastries like a chocolate croissant if you need a little mid-class snack.

    There is a wide variety from vegetarian meals to non veggie meals for the rest meat eaters. Some meals are made until ordered.

    The food is typical cafeteria food, the egg rolls are great and so is the pizza. They have many food kiosks located around the school, however they do not give cash back so always come prepared with cash if you want to get food from the vending machines or print something! The food is not amazing, but it is not bad either, typically people go out of the school to eat because there are many many choices around Saddleback College for food and dining, such as the Mission Viejo Mall, and the Town Center across the street from the school.

    Saddleback College has a basic cafeteria where you can find something to keep your tummy from growling. Saddleback College is near a mall where you can easily find more options. I recommend driving to the mall.

    I do not believe there is Greek Life on campus besides Phi Theta Kappa, which is an academic honor society. I am currently a PTK member and enjoying it. The members are all very friendly and get along well! There is an annual trip that we take every year to a conference that is a great bonding experience. In PTK, there are several positions such as President, Vice President, Treasurer, Secretary, and more. Moreover, this allows the student to get an idea at various leadership positions and what they entail.
