  • DVC is an awesome commuter school, but housing isn't much. Across the street is Camelback apartments and is where most of the international students stay. …

    It's pretty basic cafeteria food, although the upstairs food is great since it comes straight from the cooking classes.

    Great cafeteria food. Also lots of surrounding food options just a short walk or drive from campus!

    The campus cafeteria is nothing more than a high school cafeteria with updated options. The campus bookstore provides better, and healthier, options but is always too crowded.

    The food is great! A very cheap price for a very decent meal. The new cafeteria brings a nice environment for studying, eating and hanging out with friends.

    The cafeteria was done remodeled and it looks great. And the food is always hot. The pastry shop is always filled with good looking desserts. Many different choices, and the menu changes daily.

    There are a good handful of places to get food on campus: the cafeteria, the student union building, the bakery, and a restaurant the culinary arts students run. There are tons of places one can go to within walking distance of the school as well.

    The cafeteria is the oldest building in the school, and the food isn't that great, but the basement cafe is great and reasonably priced.

    The cafeteria offers a grill menu (burgers, fries, etc.) as well as grab and go items. The Cafe offers pre-made burritos as well as made-when-you order rice bowls, personal pizzas, and pasta dishes. The portions are generous, however this can be inconvenient when you don't readily have anywhere to store leftovers for the rest of your day. The Crow's Nest offers Chinese and Thai inspired meals. All the hot food and hot drinks are done by 3 or 4 pm. I have found this to be a bit discouraging and inconvenient as a student of evening classes - I can be on campus until after 10pm! The Culinary department runs a classy sit-down restaurant that has great food that is limited to lunch time offerings. The express lunch bar run by the culinary department is by far the best deal on campus for a hot lunch. You can purchase a whole fresh cooked meal (one entree, two sides) for $5.00 and they'll pour you a glass of ice water for free. Offerings from the express bar change weekly and usually follow a regional theme (Mexican, Greek, Italian, bbq). The culinary department also runs a bakery that offers reasonably priced pastries, baked goods, and even house-made ice cream.

    Non-existent, as this is a community college, with the exception of the Honor society, who has taken greek letters to represent themselves.
