  • Grossmont College does not offer dorms for its students since it's only a 2 year/ transfer college. However, there are many apartments near Grossmont College that prospective students can look…

    The food is definitely a lot better than it was when I was a freshman, but it is still not that great. I do not eat there unless I have to. I would rather drive to a fast food place too because the prices are extremely high and are not reasonable for college students.

    The food is pretty good, just a little expensive.

    The Griffin Hall is the cafeteria of sorts. Their are 4 choices of food all of it fairly health conscious. Some serve breakfast and lunch while others only open at lunchtime. Their is also a cafe area that serves drinks and small snacks as well as coffee including specialty drinks and baked goods- including the best blueberry muffin I have ever eaten in my life. The choices in the dining hall include pizza & pasta, sandwiches and salads both personal and pre-made, Mexican food, and basic all american like hamburgers and fries. Their are many options for drinks in the refrigerated sections as well. Overall- food can be kind of expensive here but it does all go back to the college and some of the workers are work study students so it all goes back where it should but if you are on a budget I would suggest bringing your own food. There is a microwave in the hall that anyone can use to warm up their own food and seating is vast and versatile. There are snack machines and coca cola machines around campus too.

    Griffin Gate provides a variety of food choices. The food is always great but there is a problem with long lines during the lunch rush. They have reasonable prices.

    They have nice snacks. I however only have a few classes so I don't eat a lot at school. Yes I eat at home.

    There is no Greek life in a community college setting other than honors society's which fall under different rules.

    There are a few active fraternities and sororities associated with Grossmont College, but I hardly noticed any student activity from them.
