  • There are only two options for dorms on campus. Neither are ideal. I'd recommend the Art Centre Building because the dorms are apartments, so you get a kitchen. Taubman dorms…

  • Jan-15-2018 I am researching this school and have not visited the campus

    I don't plan on adding the extra expense of a meal plan because of the dorms with kitchens, but I hear the food's alright with some restaurants around.

    There are several small restaurants and fast food places within blocks from the school. Downtown is also about a twenty minute drive away if you want something in particular.

    The cafeteria is expensive and they have limited options, but I don't have a meal plan because I have a full kitchen so I don't feel that I need one. The people who do have a meal plan and live in the ACB aren't normally able to spend all of their meal plan, even the smallest one.

    There are multiple places you can get food on the campus and because of the location there are restaurants all around. The T.C has a Tim Hortons on the ground floor of the building and a lunchroom on the second floor. The food in the lunch room is okay but its not the best. The Tim hortins is also combined with a Sedexo Grill which is on both campuses, and the same could be said about their food.

    I usually bring my own lunch and dinner to school but if I don't i usually head over to the dining halls. The food there is reasonably price and surprisingly good. If you want healthy food such as salad, yogurt and sandwiches they have many options you can choose from. If you're the type of person that needs caffeine for an all nighter and maybe a bag of chips just in case you get hungry they also have many options as well. Hours are convenient for everyone and it's really nice running into someone in the cafeteria and enjoying your meal with a group of people.

    There are a lot of different dining areas that are close to campus. Some of the popular restaurants that are close by are: Good Girls Go To Paris Crepes, Wasabi, Detroit One Coney Island, and Slow's Bar BQ. There are also a lot of fast food places that are nearby like Domino's, Jimmy John's, etc. Greektown and downtown Detroit have a lot of good restaurants also. Most of the food in the city isn't super expensive also so it's good for students on a budget.

    There are parties in the area with Wayne State kids who live in apartments and CCS students who live off campus also. Because of school rules and policy you can't have booze in your dorms rooms or anything like but you can find it close by if you know people who party. A lot of times students at CCS are so busy with their work they don't have a lot of time to party, but you will get opportunities to go out when you really need it. You can organize a group of people to hang out at the bar or something like that, they usually don't ID in bars in Detroit.

    There is no Greek life, but we do have our departments. During Geek Week, which is our equivalent to Home Coming week, we have department competitions. One of them this year was an Oreo licking contest. I don't know who won because I had to go to class, but I was rooting for EA.

    There isn't a Greek Life, though your classmates in your major will seem like your sorority/fraternity since they tend to stay in their own little groups.

    Non-existent. The Greektown Casino, however, is right downtown. ;)
