  • There is no on-campus living here. Everyone has to commute. There is talk about adding dorms but that more than likely will not happen anytime soon.…

    There are a couple places to get food and drink in the cafeteria, but again, this is community college, so it is not expected to have much variety in this area. There is a Dominos Express in the cafeteria.

    There is a mobile catering service that comes up to the college during the week. It has amazing food, probably not the healthiest but for a splurge every now and then, and the prices are reasonable. You can get anything from potato wedges, to a BLT, to BBQ and macaroni. There is also a cafeteria on campus, which I have not been to unfortunately, but I have heard great things about it. There are enough places to sit so that you never have to worry about sitting on the floor or around campus, there is a variety of choices, and there are even some healthier options if you don't want something from a cafe, pizza place, etc.

    There is a food truck usually that I haven't tried. There is also a coffee shop and dominios on campus. Off campus there are quite a few good options.

    There is no Greek life at Virginia Western. There is only one club that is part of a fraternity, but they do not do anything except for fundraisers. There is no place to put any Greek life at the college.
