    There's a cafeteria and a few vending machines. I haven't eaten in the cafeteria yet, but it doesn't seem too bad. Mostly sandwiches.

    There is only one cafeteria on campus, but the food is great. It's relatively inexpensive and you can get a variety of foods and drinks.

    Need more vegetarian options! The food isn't too shabby. Great drink selection, though seriously overpriced. $4 for a small Redbull, $3 for a coffee. Geez.

    Mira Costa is right in the middle of the city and it is very close to outside school restaurants.

    The cafeteria food isn't too bad. Nothing really negative to say about it. They have a variety of options for food and drinks which is good. Vending machines offer healthy snacks and we even have a coffee vending machine.

    Next to quality education, MiraCosta seems to specialize in great chow, once again at a great price. Food is made to order so its hot, fresh, and to your satisfaction. For those in a hurry, the guys in the back whip up a steady supply of grab-and-go breakfast burritos all morning and pizza in the afternoon.

    There are a few academic societies to join, but there is no real Greek Life on this commuter campus.
