  • DVC is an awesome commuter school, but housing isn't much. Across the street is Camelback apartments and is where most of the international students stay. …

    There are a good handful of places to get food on campus: the cafeteria, the student union building, the bakery, and a restaurant the culinary arts students run. There are tons of places one can go to within walking distance of the school as well.

    The cafeteria is the oldest building in the school, and the food isn't that great, but the basement cafe is great and reasonably priced.

    The cafeteria offers a grill menu (burgers, fries, etc.) as well as grab and go items. The Cafe offers pre-made burritos as well as made-when-you order rice bowls, personal pizzas, and pasta dishes. The portions are generous, however this can be inconvenient when you don't readily have anywhere to store leftovers for the rest of your day. The Crow's Nest offers Chinese and Thai inspired meals. All the hot food and hot drinks are done by 3 or 4 pm. I have found this to be a bit discouraging and inconvenient as a student of evening classes - I can be on campus until after 10pm! The Culinary department runs a classy sit-down restaurant that has great food that is limited to lunch time offerings. The express lunch bar run by the culinary department is by far the best deal on campus for a hot lunch. You can purchase a whole fresh cooked meal (one entree, two sides) for $5.00 and they'll pour you a glass of ice water for free. Offerings from the express bar change weekly and usually follow a regional theme (Mexican, Greek, Italian, bbq). The culinary department also runs a bakery that offers reasonably priced pastries, baked goods, and even house-made ice cream.

    I have only tried the cafeteria food and bookstore food. They are both on the pricey side of what looks like something which could be prepared from home. The school also has their own restaurant since they have a culinary program and the restaurant always has different things on the menu as well as very reasonably priced items prepared by the culinary students. I always see a line and it smelled pretty good so I imagine it must be delicious!

    The Norseman cafe has great food from the schools culinary students. It is only open for lunch, but it is worth it.

    Non-existent, as this is a community college, with the exception of the Honor society, who has taken greek letters to represent themselves.
