Quiznos, Panda Express, Taco Bell, Surf City Squeeze, Starbucks, Nugget, and Outpost are great and delicious places. There's coffee, soft drinks, smoothies, burgers, sandwiches, pizza, noodles, tacos, hot dogs, fries—basically whatever students have a taste for is available! Students are always on the go; therefore, the food places are quick and located in central campus locations, either in the University Student Union or very nearby. Students do appreciate the variety, but after a while the places can get old and repetitive. But when students want good food, they know they can enjoy some of their favorite eateries on campus. The dining halls are not the best, and students do prefer the more popular spots over dorm food. The popular places are in food courts, where students can sit around, eat, do homework, talk to friends, watch television, or just chill and relax.
Commuter students love seeing typically off-campus offerings smack dab in the middle of campus. If students are running late and forget to get food, the range of fast food places on campus is convenient and perfect! Oftentimes, when classes get canceled or when students have breaks, they grab a bite to eat and take a nap on the grass or in some of the comfortable chairs located in the University Student Union. CSULB food leaves students, as well as faculty, happy, relaxed, full, and satisfied.
