    UCLA is ranked second for the food they offer, and that is only because Cornell (which is a culinary school) is ranked first.

    Ranked number two for dining halls in the nation! There are four dining halls: two traditional american, one asian, and one healthy. There are also three take out restauraunts--one open till 2 am! All of this on the meal plan, so you never go hungry.

    The food here is the best in US, in my opinion. There are 5 dining halls and even more cafes where you can use your meal swipes to eat or take out various cuisines, from European to Asian.

    The food tastes great and there are many vegetarian options. It's easy to eat healthy with a salad bar in every dining hall.

    UCLA has a ton of dining options on campus especially for the dormers with meal plan. a variety of cuisines are available. Other non-meal plan options include restaurants such as Panda Express, Rubios, Northern Lights, Subway, and other dining establishments.

Student Responses to Review Topic: Greek Life

    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.

    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.

    Fantastic! There are so many options here. UCLA have six official Greek council, and there's one bound to be the perfect match for you. To name a few, there are Tau Theta Pi, Omega Sigma Tau, Beta Theta Pi, Gamma Zeta Alpha, Delta Sigma Theta, and Pi Beta Phi.
