I would recommend that you start off with a meal plan that includes 2 meals a day for the reason that many don't even utilize all meal courses and whether you use them ot not, you have already been charged for it.
UCLA has the best dining commons. Cornel used to have the best, but I think UCLA has beat them.

Food at UCLA is delicious. Each "residential restaurant" revolves its choices around a tasty central theme, such as American comfort foods or Asian and organic. These restaurants switch up their menus constantly to include creative favorites like penne with shrimp or chicken cordon bleu burgers. Although bad-for-you temptations abound, there's no shortage of healthy, vegetarian, and vegan options—each restaurant features a colorful salad bar and plenty of veggie-based entrees. The dorm zone has three quick-service restaurants, each of which is a welcome break when dining hall food becomes (if ever!) monotonous. Mean plan options are well-priced and range from 11 to 19 meals a week, though most students agree that the flexible 14 Premier plan is the way to go, as it allows unused meal "swipes" to carry over from day to day.
Outside the Hill, non-residential food offerings are almost just as fabulous. Ackerman Union hosts a variety of popular vendors and equally satisfying prices, including the largest Jamba Juice in the nation. Campus cafés, such as Northern Lights and Jimmy's Coffee House, provide an upperclassman's escape from the school day and a cozy place to study or chat.
