    The cafeteria is great. A lot of students complain about the prices, but they're really not that bad. The pizza is pretty good, as well as the chicken fingers/fries and anything from the grill is great. They also have a salad bar in the cafe and a hot bar with foods that vary every day and every week, so there's always variety. There's a Starbucks on campus as well, which isn't bad. There's also plenty of places off campus but nearby to get food. Moe's (Mexican restaurant like Chipotle), Subway, ShopRite, a brick oven pizza place, Starbucks, frozen yogurt, Dunkin Donuts, etc. are all about a 2 minute drive from the campus. The Bridgewater Mall is also about a 10 minute drive and the food court there is decent but expensive. Buffalo Wild Wings and Willie McBrides are great places to sit down if you have a while between classes, but are expensive as well.

    RVCC does not have any fraternities or sororities, however there is Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society, as well as two other honor societies. If somebody wanted to create a frat off campus, that could probably easily be done, though the school would probably condemn it.

    Phi Theta Kappa is the national honor society for community colleges and is the largest club in the school.

    To be totally honest, there is not a huge Greek Life on our campus as we are a 2-year community college. There is the normal Honors Society and Nursing Honors Society Phi theta Kappa Sigma theta Kappa and that's about it.

    Phi Theta Kappa, an educational co-ed fraternity is one of the biggest student organizations on campus (& provides many scholarship & transfer opportunities). There is also Psi Beta, an educational Greek organization for psychology students.
