3.70 Average Rating
There are many options for food on and off campus. CSUN is located in a neighborhood with a wide variety of food including McDonald's, Chipotle, Subway, Panda Express, Chili's Alessio's and many many more. The school is filled with their own restaurants and students food centers and stores as well as outside restaurants on campus.

The food was great, and it was almost as good as my grandma's home-cooked food! Every night there was an assortment of different food such as tacos, pasta, pizza, chicken strips, french fries, baked and fried chicken, an extensive salad bar, and other entrees. Every Wednesday night a specific culture's food was represented, such as Thai food, Filipino food, Mexican food, and Italian food. There is a cereal dispenser for those nights where you crave breakfast for dinner, and there is always an assortment of pastries like fresh baked cookies and also donuts. There is a sandwich making center that features fresh fruit!

What to do for fun? There is loads, whether its on campus or off! If you decide to get away from school, I recommend going to Universal Studios which is less than 30 minutes away by car. But if you cannot afford the ticket, I still recommend getting their to visit Citywalk. But if you would rather stay at the school, there is the weird theater festival and games you can go watch!

The food is amazing, the workers genuinely make you feel like coming back to eat there. There's a wide selection of food and has something everyone will want. The same with where you want to eat. You can enjoy your food, under the warm sun, under the shade of a tree, at the duck pond, even the library.
