    Rock Valley has a very large cafeteria and several vendors inside the student center. Them being: Papa Johns, Subway and lunches that are sold in the bookstore. There is also a student accessible microwave oven. Also, located in the Educational Resource Center is Megâ??s Daily Grind. I highly recommend their coffee, The two different locations are nice because there is food spread across campus, minimalizing walking time. Plus, there are vending machines and water fountains in the other buildings.

    There isn't a lot to write about. There is a Papa John's, a Subway, and Meg's(a coffee shop). Also vending machines scattered across campus. If you have a car, there are some other places nearby. It isn't much, but it suffices.

    There is no on-campus living, but RVC does have a cafe in the library as well as pizza and subs in the Student Center. There are also vending machines across campus, and a microwave in the student center.

    RVC only has four options for food: Subway, Papa John's, Meg's, or the vending machines. Subway and Papa John's are located in the student center, located near the atrium where students can dine throughout the day. Meg's is a small local cafe located in the Educational Resource Center building. I highly recommend it. My personal favorite is their chocolate chai tea! And, if all else fails, there is always the vending machines which are conveniently located in each building.

    There are multiple sororities and fraternities in RVC that I am aware of, but I do not belong to one. Occasionally I hear something about them.
