    Our Soka Bistro is AMAZING! Our food is definitely top notch compared to other universities. The bistro staff really make sure to provide us with quality, healthy, organic food. It's all you can eat, and we don't have the swipes system. You've already paid with your tuition, so all you have to do is present your ID and eat to your heart's content.

    My experience at the Bistro was a challenging because I have a lot of allergies so the three meal choices left me with eating salad or cereal a lot of days. However, the staff are pretty accommodating and will fix you whatever you want if you have dietary issues. The international cuisine is great but they also have American staples like burgers and fries (my favorite).

    Food is good here but not the best. If you have allergies the staff is willing to help you and is open to suggestions.

    Well if you like sushi, seafood and asian food then you would love it. If you are vegan you will appreciate it. But if you love meat and American food you will be disappointed. But there are fast food places and resturants you can drive to.

    The buffet at the Soka bistro is one of the reasons I came here. Food from cultures all over the world is served here. Generally, there are 3 options every meal, as well as a made-to-order grill where you can ask for Stir Fry, Cheeseburger, quesadillas, etc. Miso soup is served every day, and the Cream of Mushroom, Cream of Potato, etc soups are awesome. White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies are ridiculously tasty.

    the food is much more diverse and exciting than the food in other schools. there is alot of food that might not be appealing to alot of students. there is alot of fish. but there are always two or three options and one of them is always something more american. burgers and chicken sandwhiches are always available. in the morning you can wait in line to get eggs/omelets cooked for you, or there are the normal breakfast buffet times.

    I am so sorry to say that there is no Greek Life. But, I am going to try to set something up. I wish they have Greek Life. I have always wanted to be in a sorority. But, I think it can happen in setting few up.
