    I like the food at Butte, minus the pizza. They sometimes do not cook the pizza all the way. Other than that I love the food at Butte. I particularly love the salads and club sandwhiches. Butte also has the best white chocolate nut cookies ever! The service is also freindly, fast, and welcoming. Butte also has a coffee shop that has some great snacks and coffee. You can get a blended drink, smoothie, hot choclate or coffee.

    Butte College has great food options. The main cafeteria has 5 stations: Sushi, Sandwich, Pizza, Salad, and a Grill. Just outside the main cafeteria there is a taco truck style mexican station and right around the corner there is a wonderful coffee shop. My only complaints are the prices and there are no meal plan options.

    The cafeteria at Butte College has a lot of variety to choose from, however the most popular choices seem to be the Coyote Grill (grilled cheese and fries anyone?) and the pizza stand, which is the cheapest hot food you can find on campus. I have seen vegan options popping up lately, which is great, but I do wish the healthiest foods were also the cheapest.

    The food is really good, and they provide a large menu. There is also lots of seating inside and outside available to eat your food. There is also a coffee shop and taco stand in addition to the cafeteria food. Pizza, salad, burgers, sandwiches, snacks, drinks, breakfast food, soups, Mexican food, etc.

    The food is great, breakfast and lunch. It is the only place to eat besides vending machines. But its going to add up very quickly.

    The food you can get on campus is really good! It is relatively affordable and there is a really great cafe on campus. Plus there are vending machines all over with great options.

    Pretty good food at a reasonable price, but didn't eat on campus very often so cannot speak true to how it is.

    There are many different Frats and Serorities that Butte College students can join. They are really fun and also fairly safe.

    From what I understand, there is only one Greek institution, Phi Theta Kappa, and it is an honors program.
