  • The dorms are just like every other college. However, this school does offer 24-hour quite hours for those who prefer silence. These are CO-ed buildings, which means you will share…

    There is a wide variety of food available and I have found there has never been a day where there is nothing I can eat. It is all you can eat buffet style but be prepared to work out a lot. There is no possible way you can eat here and not gain weight if you don't work out daily.

    It's great for the first few months, but they have given the dining hall a makeover, so the food is a bit better now.

    The dining center, mess deck, is not the greatest. It would be in-between moms bad meat loaf and military food.

    I believe the food and dinning here is decent. This year they just finished constructing a brand new state of the art buffet style dinning hall right on the water front. Our school also has a snack shack of sort called morrow cove that runs pretty late for studying students who get the late night munchies.

  • Aug-19-2013 I am accepted here and planning to attend soon

    I've been told by students who have already attending that there is a variety to the food compared to other colleges and there is currently another dining hall being built on campus.

    This is arguably one of the worst features of the California Maritime Academy, the food on campus is awful in every conceivable way. Most students don't leave the cafeteria without visiting the restroom. However you will find yourself eating several helping because you will be hungry again soon after leaving the cafeteria (Which BTW, is only open for a few hour during the morning, afternoon and evening.) After you finish eating you will find a literal puddle of yellow grease on your plate. Fortunately CMA has an excellent baker who makes the deserts. For those who can afford it, there is the Morrow Cove Cafe, which is Sandwich shop during the afternoon (which will accept your meal card) and a pizza shop at night (which accepts money or flex points.) Otherwise there are vending machines. Those are your only dinning choices on campus. By the way the only cooking implements allowed in the dorms are microwaves, and coffee machines (Even so, fires are not infrequent, fortunately most students are trained in firefighting at some point). Off campus, there are a couple Pizza restaurants that will deliver to campus. The usual fast food restaurants are available too. For those with a bigger budget, and car available, the nearby Marina host some upscale restaurants. (It is difficult for freshmen to get parking passes by the way, parking outside the gate is not recommended.)

    Just like a buffet everyday! You will have a chance to eat three times a day, but after hours you can go to Morrow Cove. Morrow Cove is a small shop that sells drinks, sandwiches, and salads.

    I think there are a couple of guys who have game night in Morrow Cove, or people will play games in their room.
