    Better have a good paying job if your not much of a cook. Dining in the Santa Barbara isn't cheap, believe me. Either find a job at a local restaurant and it'll work out great when coming to food.

    JSB cafe on campus is AMAZING! You can get a full meal for a great price. There is also a variety of choices on the menu. The new wood fire pizza oven makes heavenly pizzas. Oh, and everything is make by the students in the culinary program!

    As in regards to food you choose what you eat because there is no meal plan because it is a community college. There is a huge selection to choose from you can grab a bite in school or go down to State Street.

    There is a cafeteria with food made by the culinary art students. I will admit that there are days in which the food comes out better than others but it almost always comes out good. especially their pasta salads and breakfast meals. SBCC even has a fruit bowl station in which you order a healthy fruit bowl with yogurt and fixings (yum).

    Honestly, the food is great!! Some things are overpriced but it is a privilege to even have the cafeteria, the cafe, and the coffee shops on campus.

    The cafeterias at SBCC are good, with both hot food and a wide assortment of snacks and junk food. There are also salad bars and coffee shacks on each campus of the college. The coffee is to die for.

    There is no official Greek Life at SBCC, but there are plenty of Greeks from UCSB, and you can certainly chill with them and become their friends, it's the best of both worlds really.
