    Great lunch options in the cafeteria with lots of tables. The Starbucks on campus is great too but the line can get pretty long really fast.

    Delicious, and the staff are extremely helpful and willing to look at ingredients. Plus, a lot of the workers are also students, so they understand both time and money constraints!

    The cafeteria is good food, but the Cafe/bakery that is in the culinary department is the best food available. The cafe is a 5star restaurant.

    The cafeteria food is a little pricey, but sooo good. There's also a Subway and Starbucks, which is pretty great.

    Of all the Los Rios Colleges ARC has the widest variety and best selection (for community college)! Not only is there a Starbucks on campus but also a Subway; the campus also has its own salad bar, sandwich shop, burger place, knock-off mongolian, etc. Also caters to the breakfast crowd with muffins, bagels, oatmeal, and some sort of coffee machine I have yet to get up the courage to try out!

    There are no fraternities or sororities on campus. There is Phi Theta Kappa - an international honors society for students who excel academically (looks great on your transcript).

    There are no fraternities or sororities, which is fine because most just glorify a select group of people and create cliques among the students.

    MESA...tha'ts the geekiest club I can think of. I think it stands for math, engineering, science and something else. But it's great club if you need tutoring in these areas.
