    The school's cafeteria is kinda hit or miss. The food is pretty good for the most part, albeit a bit expensive. The main stations are for hot food, pizza, salads, wraps, and coffee/tea. It helps that there are daily lunch specials and a card that you can add your own money to and have as a back-up plan for when you're broke.

    The food here is good but it's pricey >.< ! I know that on some days they have student specials but if your like me and trying to save your bucks it probably wouldn't work in your favor to eat at the school cafe everyday. There is also lots of vendors out side of campus so no worries you'll have options to choose from.

    They really cater to everyone on campus. Since there is a huge Latino population at jjay, they will often serve food from Latin American countries that taste like home-made meals!

    The cafeteria in the New Building at John Jay is great. It is small though and sometimes it can be overcrowded. The staff is very generous and the college offers jobs at the cafeteria for students. During the morning, the cafeteria is great for meeting friends and hanging out. Sometimes student activities and filming for T.V shows take place in the cafeteria.

    The food is expensive here but that's to be expected coming from the city. The restaurants and the fast food joints around the city are a lot more expensive, but they do offer a diversity of food and their easily walkable.

    We have Starbucks and hundreds of other varieties of food. If you don't like the food inside the building, you can walk down the street and get a slice of pizza; or you can walk down the steps of the building and get a gyro; you can ever get a deli sandwich from across the street!

    mostly academic : Psi Chi, Phi Eta Sigma, a couple more but you'll find them on John's Jay's Bulletin Board it's like this really chunky PDF file of all that the school has to offer. I don't really here much about Greek life activities on campus but I do want to get involved my spring semester of next year so I'll ask around. It's one of those things where you have to look into and if theirs not a chapter here you can just create one with a couple of friends.

    Several years ago, moderately recent, Greek life was introduced in John Jay. If you look around the school you can see people of sororities and fraternities hanging out and participating in the college community. The Greek life at John Jay is not particularly emphasized as much as other schools but is an available source of campus life.
