What Students Are Saying

3.58 Average Rating
The food and dinning facility are clean and nice.
The food is good and menu's change with regularity to keep you from getting bored with the same taste. The dining hall in centrally located so it easy to get to and chilly's is open for quick snacks
Ashlyn from Temecula, CA
The food is great compared to what I've seen at other schools. We don't only get better meals but more variety. The food is also all organic which makes me feel better about what I'm eating.
Carrie from Sonoma, CA
I had the buffet once and it was good. There was a variety of foods to choose from including tacos, salads, pasta, etc. If you are not going to stay in the dorms it is not mandatory to purchase food plans.
Angelina
Food and dinning commons are healthy and provide a lot of variety for all.
Jessica from Fairfield, CA
The dining hall is very hit or miss. You never know how the food will be, although lunch is probably the best meal of the day. We have Ice Cream Thursdays and Burger/Hot Dog Fridays, which are both great.
Jordan from San Jose, CA
The required meal plan if you live on campus is $600 a month and totally not worth it. The food is good but you'll get tired of it. It's not organic or local or free-range. The good news is there are hundreds of small business restaurants in San Rafael and Marin that are terrific and affordable in addition to several great health food grocery stores and farmers markets all in walking distance to campus.
