    #1 dorm food in America! So yes, it is very good compared to other schools but I feel like most of the dining halls are very unhealthy except B-Plate. Because there are so many options of food, you will never get bored of it.

    Food is great. There is a huge variety and the food is fairly healthy. If you make the right choices, freshman 15 can be easily avoided, as pizza and fries are not the only options here.

    The food, is, fantastic. It's like eating at a fine dinery all the time and there are various options offered. I absolutely enjoy all the dining halls. But if your nervous, go eat at the the one in Rieber, it is more traditional American food.

    Obviously UCLA has the best dining halls ever! Very diverse population of food (Asian, Western, Mexican, and more) and they change it up throughout the week while keeping specials every week. I never get tired of the food because there are so many to choose from. It took me 2 quarters to try everything they offered!

  • I am researching this school and have visited the campus

    The food they offer as part of the package is great. There are actual people who cook the food as you ask for it, so you know it's fresh. As for the restaurants around the campus, make sure to bring your money! The food is delicious, especially near Westwood, and even going just a bit farther from the campus gives you plenty of choices to choose from.

    Greek life is crazy and diverse at UCLA. Definitely rush and see who you fit in with. There is a frat and sorority for all kinds of subject but also multiple ones for that single subject.

    Amazing! Being in the city makes the experience a lot better because the events are much more novel.

    I am not involved in Greek Life, but I know there are different focuses that the various groups have. They can range from pre-professional to community service to cultural oriented. Not all sororities and frats have a house, but are rather just a group/organization.
