    Food is delicious! Many options. The weekend hours aren't as accommodating as during the week though, so that is something to consider if you are planning on staying over the weekend and are an early bird or someone who needs to have 3 meals a day. If you are a busy bee and someone who likes to get involved, getting a premium meal plan may be ideal as it allows you to swipe for meals more than once during a given meal period (which helps for those long days filled with back to back meetings).

    On the hill, there are a large variety of food to choose from: organic/healthy, American, Asian, Mexican, and more that I probably don't remember. You can get something different during a whole week. But I know that I have gotten tired of the food quickly.

    The food is great. My friends from UC Irvine came to UCLA and said the food tastes so much better. I cannot imagine what food at other colleges taste like then. I like how there's a variety too since there are four different dining halls. There's Asian food, organic food, American food, and Italian food.

    Some of the best food available. Occasionally complaints are like the fries got cold or the line is too longer, otherwise it's all good. Some dining halls may not suit your flavor profiles but I'm sure there is one that will.

    Amazing gourmet food. There is something here for anyone and the upperclassmen are always begging the freshman to swipe them in.

    UCLA has a variety of dining options! I also loved that it actually has a Yoshinoya on campus too. I feel that anything that I would ever want to eat is available right on campus.

    The food is incredible. There are so many choices when it comes to food for the meal plans. And there are also a bunch of restaurants and cafes on campus to choose from as well. By far, my favorite place was Bruin Plate, the healthy dining hall in the residential area.

    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.

    I tried greek life. It wasn't for me. It is a typical sorority/fraternity scene. The men are respect-less and the women are clique-y. Drinking and getting drunk is all too common, to the point where the sorority's or fraternity's values are completely left behind. As a whole, Greeks seem superficial and are not for the more down to Earth, genuine, wholehearted individuals.

    Is it Thursday yet? Parties are thrown every Thursday in the Fraternities / Sororities 3 minutes from the dorms.
