    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!

    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.

    I've never been able to dine on-campus, but UCLA's other facilities (like the Ronald Reagan Hospital) has great food! Their cakes are so good! Their salmon and soup is really good as well! They have both healthy options, as well as treats to indulge in. It's pretty good for hospital food.

    UCLA was voted #1 food and dining and with good reason. B Plate, Cafe 1919 and Late Night at De Neve are crowd favourites and tend to have long lines but the wait is definitely worth it. However make sure you don't run out of swipes - Premier (P) plans are the key.

    The food is great and the campus has won numerous awards on their food quality. There are lots of places to choose from...but be careful of the FRESHMAN 15! You can and will put on weight if you don't watch what you eat.

    There are so many places to eat on campus, and all of the food is great. Not only that, there is also the city of Westwood to go to, and that has a lot more food.

    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.
