    Tons of restrants and dining SLO. My only warning is it is a smaller area so things are not opened all night. There are a few opened late on the weekends but not much other than that. Otherwise the selection is delicious with an excellent vibe.

    I don't eat in the cafeteria a ton, I usually wait until I'm home or eat off campus. But when I do eat in the cafeteria I have a decent salad from their salad bar. They also have the Big Sur Bars which are very good to-go snack.

    The food is typical cafeteria food. There aren't too many options and the quality isn't the greatest. Prices are a bit high for what you are getting but the cafeteria does offer a warm place to study and socialize with friends for students who have time in between classes.

    Cuesta's cafeteria is surprisingly diverse. There are a number of stations to choose from, or you can just grab some snacks and check out. There's also a coffee cart located right behind the student services building. If you're looking to buy coffee on campus, I strongly suggest migrating to the cart rather than relying on the cafeteria coffee. It's a quick drive from Cuesta into town, so if you've got some down time between classes, you can also grab a bite downtown.

    Cuesta has the main campus in SLO and they have a great cafeteria even though it is very pricey! There is a North Campus and they don't really even have a cafeteria.

    None to speak of. Driving through SLO, you'll see a number of fraternity and sorority houses, but these are all allocated to Cal Poly students.

    lame they are what you expect out of a regular greek system except they are less then 1% and are disliked by everyone out of the 1%. (I've heard repeated times of roofing)
