    I love always going to see what is for lunch for the day- they have so many options, and as someone with many allergies, always being able to find something to eat is great!

    urban and ankeny campuses have convenient vending machines, and are located near pretty cool, affordable options.

    The only reason I give food and dining a three star is because there is a new rec center going up as of now which leaves limited food and dining. I absolutely love our bistro in the culinary arts building! Attend the bistro with friends or family and you will not be disappointed with the amazing service and the taste of the food!

    There is no food plan for DMACC students. There is a cafeteria on campus, but I've never eaten there. I've heard its good and reasonably priced, but that is only hearsay.

    DMACC doesn't have fantastic dining services, at least not at the Boone Campus. You get your own kitchen, however, so I think that's even better than dining service because I like to cook. This could be good or bad though, depending on your preference.

    Haven't experience that much yet either. It's my first year and I feel you get in where you fit in. Eventually I wouldn't mind joining an honor society and I am constantly working towards achieving my goal of getting there.

    I didn't really hear anything about it. There may have been people who were part of one or another but nothing that was main-frame.
