    The food at JJC is mostly fast food like burgers, fries, and pizza, but hey, who doesn't love pizza? There is a salad and sandwich bar area for the health conscious students out there as well.

    For being a community college, JJC has a very good caf�© for either a full meal or quick snack. Plenty of seating and the prices were not too bad.

    The cafeteria is what I would expect from a college, there are loads of options to choose from and a sandwich and coffee area which even offers frappuccino's.

    The food is okay, in my opinion not worth the price. If you do not get a meal plan from financial aid I would recommend going off campus to eat or to the vending machines.

    Food is great and there is a taste for everyone. The snacks are at a very low price and it is much of a grab and go for everyone. Its not quite 5 star but it is good enough as oppose to going to fast food.

    The cafeteria for students is okay. It's a bit pricey. However, the culinary department has this thing called The Chef's Table (a restaruant) and Chef's Table To-Go (a kiosk) which are both FANTASTIC prices and organic foods.

    They have a great cafeteria with both healthy and other enjoyable foods. Most teachers allow you to bring your food and drink in the class as long as it can be sealed.

    JJC has one of the best culinary programs, if you are at the school at the right time of day, the culinary students will be selling their assignments from the day. Regular cafeteria food is grossly overpriced and mediocre.

    There is a small presence of fraternities and sororities here, but nothing like other schools. They do exist on a minimal level but they do not get much attention. However, others are still welcome to them, they just do not play a huge role on campus.
