    There is a cafeteria that sells food at very limited hours. I like to eat healthy so I am not much of a fan of chicken tenders and burgers. The prices are fairly low, however that tells me that they are getting their meat from poor sources and are likely supporting factory farming. I would like to see a full salad bar and extended hours. It would be especially nice to get food from local farmers, as there are many in the area and the college already has a volunteer program that goes to Brigg's Avenue Community Garden. In general, I see many students grabbing food out of vending machines. The selection is poor, mostly processed junk food. Buying vending machines with healthier food choices would be a good investment.

    The food at Durham Tech is good. The only problem is that the food is expensive and sometimes the snack machines steal money.

    The food is decent and in a cafeteria type atmosphere where there is wifi and socializing. Of course there are vending machines. There are cool places to eat outside as well. There picnic tables outside in case you want to get a little vitamin D while you grub I actually try to bring my lunch most days unless I don't didn't have time to grocery shop. Fresh fruit, yogurt, granola bars and water are my staple items.

    The cafeteria closes early (either 1 or 2pm?) and there's limited choices, especially if you want to eat healthy on a budget. Also, it lacks good coffee & tea.

    There's apparently a cafeteria, but I have not tried it and it has always been closed during my late classes. Otherwise a few vending machines with sparse offerings are available here and there.

    Durham Tech has a cafeteria in the Wynn building; the food there is not the greatest, but about 10 minutes away is Downtown Durham which is home to many great coffee shops and restaurants (chicken and waffles, anyone?).

    The only Greek I know is Phi Theta Kappa :-). And that is the only club that I am involved with. However, they do a lot of activities and community service projects throughout the year.

    Phi Theta Kappa and Phi Theta Lambda, and Tau Eta Sigma have a presence at Durham Technical. Phi Theta Kappa is an academic honors society. Sigma Delta Mu is an honors society that recognizes students in Spanish curriculum. Phi Theta Lambda helps students prepare for the business world. These organizations are also involved in civic outreach. Tau Eta Sigma is a Greek dental society, imagine that.
