On Campus Living – The Bricks(3 old brick dorm buildings) are the oldest and what people call the "ghetto" of dorms, but it is definitely the most social and most outgoing building. It is probably the best option if you're eager to meet lots of people. The bathrooms do get pretty gross but you get used to it. Also Joe West is okay, but the bathrooms I think are even nastier. The nicest living options are the Suites, they're super new and are really nice. They do cost more, and they are said to not be as social because your rooms are more secluded and you have more personal space.
DC Dining – The food in the DC(Cafeteria)is definitely not the best. They do have some good options, but it depends what you like. They always have pizza, pasta, burgers, sandwiches, and burritos. Yet, if you're like most people you'll want to try other things as well. There service definitely isn't the best, and the utensils and plates etc. sometimes don't always seem the cleanest. They're open pretty late so that's a plus. Also, there is a 7/11 right next to campus and a Village Market on campus that is open late and has pretty good food!
PR Major – This school is really big on engineering, so you'll most likely meet someone within that department. PR has a lot of opportunities around campus. There's a PRSSA that you can join and they let you get experience and knowledge on local PR companies and other such things. Since you're in the city and near SF there's a lot of opportunities as well for internships.
Better Choices Off Campus – There's are tons of restaurants/dining around campus. Some are definitely affordable for students which are the closest to campus. The more expensive/nicer restaurants are deeper into the city, but you can always get there by walking or public transportation.
