    The food here at Otero is alright. It's not great, but it's not terrible either. Some days it can get pretty bad, but there's enough choices and variety at the cafeteria to ensure you don't have to always eat bad food. The only thing that sucks is that the cafeteria has weird hours, especially on the weekends.

    With a brand new renovated cafeteria and lounge the quality of OJC's food and dining has definitely increased. There is a wide variety of fresh cooked food and full salad bar to choose what you want to eat. In addition, if you enjoy watching television while you eat there is an eight screen television set with cable and outlet to connect your gaming system! Also, serving staff is very friendly and knows majority of us on a first name bases, so it makes us feel at home.

    The food is pretty good, and the prices are fair, considering the location. There was just a Starbucks off branch opened in the new Learning Commons, that serves really good tea and coffee.

    The cafeteries rocks! Good food, flat screens, and comfortable. Can't beat it! The pricing of the food is more than fair, and often enough the cafeteria is filled to the brim at meal times.

    For geeks like me! There is many study group and study sessions available. There is plenty of areas to quietly work on your own. The school also provides one-on-one tutoring when necessary. The library is FILLED with great books!
