What Students Are Saying

4.50 Average Rating
Collins is has a lot of healthy options and it's very convenient to be able to meet friends from all 5Cs at your and their dining halls.
Clevelander at CMC
As far as dining hall food, it is VERY good, with many healthy options. Because it is located on a consortium you can eat at any of the 7 dining halls.
Mia from Carmel, IN
Not only is Collins Dining Hall a superb place to eat, but since CMC is part of the Claremont Consortium, students will have access to every other college's dining halls and cafes. Each hall has its own distinct personality, and is bound to satisfy any student's needs on any given day. For example, CMC's dining hall favors a diet conducive to building muscle and exercise; I maintained the same workout schedule as at home, and managed to build 7 lbs of muscle in the 1st semester due to the abundance of protein in the grill section and carbs in the spaghetti/pasta bar. In contrast, Scripps College has a dining hall with a heavier emphasis of salads, boasting a staffed salad bar. Furthermore, the Athenaeum, which is where CMC hosts speakers from Monday to Thursday night, serves gourmet food at a sit-in, not buffet, style.

My tour guide told me the food at the cafeteria is good and there are other places around campus you are able to take advantage of.
Christina from Los Angeles, CA
Everyone says the food at the 5Cs are amazing, but it might get a bit boring after a while. Scripps' fresh baked cookies are always amazing and Frank is quite a walk but well worth it.
Sarah
The food at Claremont McKenna is amazing. There is no such thing as fast food there. Everything is cooked like a meal that mom makes at home. There is always fresh salad and vegetarian options in addition to the wide selection of food already presented at each meal. Also, you can always get up and get more food unlike some colleges where what you have on your plate is all you get.
Karissa from Walnut, CA
AMAZING FOOD. You will never get bored of the food. Even if you do, you have four-five other dining halls to choose from at the other colleges.
Jessica from Claremont, CA
Great all you can eat food at all 7 of the 5-C dining halls. The best college food in the country!
