    Vending machines are often out of order or food is out of date. Food truck options are not great and the cafeteria is currently closed. A new cafeteria is potentially opening soon.

    When the Cafe used to be open Gaston College food was delicious. Breakfast and lunch were served every day. There was always a variety of foods to eat.

    The cafeteria at Gaston College is delicious. If by some chance someone does not like the food there at the college, there are food places that are nearby the school.

    Gaston College does have a cafe on campus. They serve very good and delicious food and sometimes have special events that will bring foreign foods for students to try.

    With only a cafe, Gaston College has very limited choices. Being a commuter campus is one reason; there is not much all-day traffic. Extra snacks are available through the Bookstore and vending machines.

    While it sounds like it, Phi Beta Lambda and Gamma Beta Phi (Honors Club) are not traditional Greek life at Gaston College. Greek life is not really a part of Gaston, probably because it is a commuter campus.
