    Horrible people say it is so amazing but after the third week you get tired of it. Plus, the lines for one small amount of food are so long and they are everywhere.

    Love the food. It's delicious. There's a brand new dining hall at UCLA that is loved by so many. When I was on break, I missed dining hall food.

    The food at UCLA is diverse and delicious. Feast at Rieber serves Pan Asian food, focusing on a different Asian cuisine each night. The different stations include a flatbread, spice kitchen, and more. Covel serves Mediterranean food and has Pita Tuesdays for lunch. Although the hummus and other dishes are not authentic, it is still great food. The menu usually includes pasta. De Neve features Latin and American food, including quesadillas, Chile Verde and corn fritters. Covel and De Neve always serve burgers, grilled cheese, hot dogs, and pizza. Bruin Plate is focused on providing healthy food to students. Their freshly made food incorporates whole grains and seasonal fruits and vegetables. They have the most unique dishes while still being delicious! Dessert includes a fruit and yogurt bar, bread, and other small, healthier desserts (e.g. peanut butter chocolate chip ball or date bar). All residential restaurants have a salad and soup bar. The atmosphere is nice, all having huge windows overlooking the campus. If youâ??re not into scenery, there are televisions as well. If you do not have time to sit in, there are several to-go dining options. There are breakfast and lunch to-go options from the dining halls, which include parfaits, smoothies, and sandwiches, but there are also quick service restaurants. Bruin Café offers soups, salads, and sandwiches- BBQ Beef Brisket, Southwest Chicken wrap, and Chinese Chicken salad are some of my favorites- as well as coffee, pastries, and smoothies. Café 1919 serves Panini sandwiches (Chicken pesto-yum!), personal pizzas, salads, gelato, and coffee drinks. Rendezvous has both a Latin and Asian menu with daily specials. The pick two items Asian combo is big and includes delicious items such as orange chicken and sesame wings! Whatever food at whatever time you feel like, chances are your cravings will be satisfied.

    One of the best college dining facilities in the United States. Every meal you have at any of the dining halls or restaurants around campus is sure to be a fulfilling one. Outstanding variety and top notch quality on everything that emerges from those kitchens.

    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.

    I enjoy being part of greek life. I joined a sorority and have made amazing friends. There can be a misconception about sororities, so check it out, you have nothing to loose. They have parties, but also push academics, and creating well rounded people.

    Just new to greek life, and I can tell you it is not for everybody, but if you are a very social person, it is extremely for you. There are many events that you are required to go to, which makes it inevitable to meet people! The sororities have a strict no hazing policy, you can trust me on this! I have met so many fantastic people through this!

    As someone in the geek life, I wouldn't know much about Greek letter organizations. Don't go too crazy with the social ones. From people I know who joined, the service ones, like Alpha Phi Omega, seem interesting.

    Greek life at UCLA offers students a good opportunity to join a different setting than already used to. Those in a sorority and fraternity never regret joining despite any drama or problems felt. The Greek life has students get to become a tight knit family and also experience a new form of rivalry one where the students help one another, but still compete against each other to see who can do things better.
