  • Sadly, there is no Dorm Life, but there are many different apartment complexes surrounding each campus which is definitely convenient. I find that the community is definitely involved.…

    ACC has a cafe in most of their campuses and they offer a wide variety of food. But I recommend making your meals at home. It is much cheaper and you are not limited to what they have there.

    The food as changed for the healthier. I love love the Tropical Smoothie Cafe. Every week I have to either have a smoothie, fortunately they not only taste good but promote your health. So I don't leave feeling as guilty. Not only are there delicious smoothies but healthy wraps, sandwiches and tacos.Since I have changed my diet to vegetarian/ pescetarian, it has become difficult to kind of eat out, since A.C.C. has changed their menu it has helped me a lot... I recommend trying the baja fish tacos.

    The various locations offer on-site eateries that are good as well as close to other restaurants in the vicinity of the campuses.

    They, by and far, have the most delicious options for on-campus eating that have I experienced. Everything on their menu is accommodation for food preferences for all types. Gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan, and all their food is fresh. I prefer to shop local, so I enjoy that the cafe is an original cafe as opposed to having Wendy's as my only option every day. Every meal I've had has been quick, quality, and delivered with a smile. What more could you ask for?

    I've tried both the Northridge and Cypress creek campus' food. The food was decent and had good prices for a college student.It definitely helps out in between classes.or for late night classes (if you catch them before they close) when you need an extra boost.

    In my experience, I have found the food to be decent and satisfying enough if I had to spend a long day at campus studying or waiting for a class to start. They have a pretty good variety as far as the menu goes, from breakfast meals to lunch/dinner meals to smoothies. They also have a healthier menu, which contains salads, wraps, and low calorie items. I personally have never tried this menu but my friends who have were usually content with it. I will say it is hit or miss with some dishes. For example, the breakfast tacos or croissants are better some mornings than others. Also, some dishes sound pretty promising, but can sometimes end up being not what you expected or just average. Again though, the dishes that I have purchased here were satisfying for me and got me through many long days at campus. It is also a little on the pricey side, might I add, so if you want to save some money it would be a good idea to bring something from home. As far as the dining areas go, it can get very crowded to the point where there is nowhere to sit or you have to share a table with someone you do not know (hey, that's how we make friends right?). When it is crowded it can be hard to get any work or studying done, due to lack of space and noise level, so I recommend leaving the studying to the learning lab or library. Once the next round of class starts up though tables usually open, and as the day goes on the dining area is a little more clear as well. There is also the option of sitting outside as well, which is nice if the weather is gorgeous. Overall, the dining area was always a good spot to just eat, relax, and socialize with people after class or before you decide to start a long day of studying.

    ACC has a National Honor Society chapter, Phi Theta Kappa, that will invite you in if you have a GPA of 3.4 or higher. The center around helping more advance students achieve complex tasks that help them with their professional and leadership skills. Also will show students how to set up and organized fundraisers and other volunteer/community service projects. It is fun but can be a bit of a work overload if you are a full time student working a part time job like me. But if you have too much free time over each semester between exams and course work, then it would be a fun deal. Also once you are in you get a certificate and they will offer to stamp your resume as well. Which could ultimately get you that much needed job in your career path. If you are a transfer student and you joined them for a semester they have a branch at Texas State University and are trying to set up one at the University of Texas so you can still be apart of the action while at another major university.
