Reviews Dorm Life

  • It's community college so there are no dorms. While you may feel that you're missing out on this experience, think about how much money you are saving. Sometimes not dorming…

  • Again, there are no dorms. Dorm life shouldn't be the first thing you think of in selecting a college anyway though, so this is no big deal. Especially for people…

    The Jersey Blues Cafe in the Student Life Center has great food. You can count on seeing salads, wraps, sandwiches, and burgers and can pick up pre-packaged food. There is also a convenience store next to the bookstore with a Starbucks. Vending machines are located throughout the campus, and there is a student lounge and a cafe in Larrison Hall. Clubs often order food for meetings.

    There are several options for food available on campus and many areas to eat. The food in the cafeteria is quite delicious, though a bit expensive. Definitely not the kind of place that serves mystery meat! The campus library also allows food which is great for study sessions between classes- just be sure to be respectful to the library and other students by cleaning up after yourself and being quiet!

    Dining options include: 1) Dining hall at the Warner Student Life Center which serves pizza, sandwiches, burgers, salads and breakfast items for dine-in or take-out. The food is good quality. 2) The cafe at Larrison Hall, which serves coffee and snack items. 3) The convenience store at the Warner Student Life Center which has a coffee bar and a wide variety of pre-packaged snacks. 4) Vending machines at most of the academic buildings. You can use your Brookdale One Card, which is also a Discover debit card, to purchase your food, and that includes some of the vending machines.

    Brookdale offers a cafeteria to its students which offers cuisine from various cultures. There is also a campus convince store that contains a sandwich station and a Starbucks cafe. Meal portions are generous and prices are reasonable.

    One thing I wasn't a big fan of however, is the food, and in particular its pricing, which may or may not be come to be expected. If you can, and this will seriously sound elementary, but try bringing your own lunches if you can. There are plenty of places to actually eat, the cafeteria area in the student life center is fairly nice. Try to avoid paying too much for their food though, as most if it is fairly pricey. For example, a small basket of chicken fingers for $5. It's not as much food for your money as you would think it is.

    The food here has really improved. Recently, Brookdale got taken over by another company and the food has both become tastier and healthier. It's doubtful that you'll struggle with the freshman 15 unless you're constantly opting for the cheeseburgers and chicken finger combo. The lunchroom now has a salad bar and sandwich station, equipped with a variety of wraps to choose from. They even have soup. There are yogurt parfaits and fruit for a quick snack, or you can opt for chips or a pretzel. Last semester, they also added a Starbucks on campus, located inside the convience store. After the lunchroom closes, you can have a sandwich made inside the convience store. Inside Larrison Hall, there is also a small store with a coffe machine and pretzel warmer. There are small sandwiches warming inside a machine, and plenty of junkfood and drinks to choose from. If Starbucks doesn't meet your fancy, there is a Dunkin Donuts around the corner by Phalanx Rd. There is also a deli, Perkins, and yogurt shop before Dunkin Donuts. If you're looking for more food, if you exit out the side of the school with the traffic circles, there is a Mcdonald's, Ralphs Water Ice, and a few pizza shops.

    Students should try to never eat the cafeteria food. The food is not only bland, but it's also very expensive and not worth the money at all. Try eating at home or out at the various places off-campus.

    Brookdale doesn't have Fraternities or Sororities but they do have an Honor Society called the Alpha Pi Theta, a chapter of the Phi Theta Kappa. You do a lot of volunteer work, plan future events, go to said future events, make friends and learn valuable leadership skills.

    People may not think that a community college has any Greek Life, but you're wrong. There is a good amount that you can choose from and they all have different purposes and meanings.
