    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.

    Compared to other schools, the food is decent. Many students get bored of the food since the options become repetitive, but you can't have too high expectations of a food service that has to provide for thousands and at a fast rate.

    The food here is excellent. The amount of food even for the lowest meal plan offers plenty! There are plenty of healthy food options and the amount is generous.

    Decent food and pretty pricey. You use your student ID to swipe for food and changes the balance each time you use it. Also, there are certain meals that are served differently per day and week. Food and dining is very diverse, from American classic to Asian bistro to bar style to food truck, there is plenty of varieties to choose from.

    The food and dining was mostly located on the Northern half of campus. However, this was causing problems for some students who felt that they did not have enough time between classes that were on the Southern half of the campus to get food because it was too far away. They requested that the campus start a food truck for on the Southern half of campus. The campus agreed and now there is a food truck that runs daily on the Southern half of campus.

    The food at Pacific is very good, especially for a school kitchen. There is a cafe with a wide variety of foods, including pasta, a grill, Mexican food, Asian food, and a station for healthy selections. There is also a more restaurant-styled place to eat, with more traditional foods like burgers, pizza, hot dogs, and more. Overall the quality of the food is good, but still not on par with an actual restaurant.

    The food is above average, however it gets old really quick. The best food item would be breakfast! They make solid tater tots and omelettes.

    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!

    JOIN RHO DELTA CHI! The best sisterhood ever :) It is an Asian-interest sorority but we accept all kinds of girls! Our sorority is about sisterhood, social, scholastics and service. Learn more about us during club rush week!

    There are a variety of opportunities for Greek life as each house supports a different organization in the community and does fundraisers for it.
