    the food is good, but very repetitive. it get boring quick like any other food. get a regular meal plan (silver or bronze), and plan to eat out instead.

    Food in the main dining hall is good, but the lines are often long. The Grove (convenience store) has a variety of snacks and foods to buy, but the prices are either rather high or rather low. No matter where you are on campus, there is always a place nearby to get food (unless they are closed, or the food truck has driven away).

    Consistent and above average food that is a little pricey. It's food on campus; what more do you expect.

    If you live on campus you are required to have a meal plan. They're different levels which comes with different points. You can use them in the Derosa University Center that we refer to as the UC or in The Grove, which is like a convenient store, you can find anything from shampoos to organic food grown at the school or quick snacks for in-between classes. Our food is catered by Bon-Appetit and they have a lot of variety. They have gluten free options and label foods to correspond to certain food allergies. It's really good food but I did at times get tired of the food, even though they have a lot of different stations. In the UC they have the marketplace downstairs which has many stations from everything you can think of, and upstairs they have The Lair which is pub and grill style. They have alcoholic beverages, pizzas, burgers, calzones.

    Food is good but a little pricey, but that won't be a problem for students with a meal plan. Despite there being many different types of food to choose from, the options can get repetitive. Special options are available for those with dietary restrictions. There is also an on-campus grocery store for those who don't want to eat in the cafeteria.

    Same thing every week unless it's a holiday. The kitchen has an abundance of health code violations. the food is not good and is unreasonably high.

    Not massive greek scene but in existence. These guys are the only people having parties on campus, so anyone that parties is basically a member.

    Greek life is a big part of the social aspect at UOP as a majority of students are affiliated with one or more organizations. Divided into three types: professional, social, and special interest, there are Greek organizations that appeal to a part of everyone's collegiate interests or goals.

    There are few and is overrated and expensive. If you're looking for the party scene, make friends with the sport kids. Join a professional frat. That waym it looks good on your resume, you get the same perks as social sor/frat and you spend much less on dues.

    Top notch Greek Life system at Pacific! Because the campus is smaller than other larger Universities, the sororities and fraternities are smaller than at other campuses making the connection and sisterhood/brotherhood tighter than at other schools (in my opinion). Greek Life at Pacific is not like at other schools, it will offer you so many opportunities and Pacific has a strict NO HAZE policy which is strictly followed (I'm serious). JOIN!
