What Students Are Saying

3.81 Average Rating
good variety of home style cooking and very friendly staff
Caitlyn from Whittier, CA
There is a cafeteria on campus in which students can eat by purchasing a meal plan. We also have a place called the Spot in which is a mini mart to buy different food selections. There are other food places that are within walking distance from the school.
Sara from Los Angeles, CA
The food and dining at Whittier is mediocre.
Jae from San Diego, CA
Depends on where you eat and what you eat. You'll have to try it and find out. Off campus eateries are also excellent.
Rachel from Lakewood, CA
Just like any other cafeteria, the food gets old, but it's still good.
Fernando from Bell Gardens, CA
It is nice being centrally located in the middle of whittier because we have fine dinging or fast food. There is a lot to choose from but one of the local spots is IN'N'OUT burger.
