    The food here at RCC is relatively pleasing. The pizza is what I prefer to order when I am on the go. They have many choices of restaurant quality pizzas and submarine sandwiches that are suitable for just about any type of palette. Much more exists at the RCC cafeteria and it takes hunger to discover what they have to offer!

    The campus food isn't the greatest and it isn't the worst, but luckily for the college a food and dining area is just around the corner. Market Street features a good amount of restaurants, a small plaza, bars, coffee shops and other recreational areas for students to enjoy. A popular spot for college students in Riverside is called Back To The Grind, a very nice coffee shop that screams college life. It is rather hipster in a sense, decorations are fun and has bookshelves for people to read, board games and other fun decorations. Two other attractions come to mind, back to the grind features a small terrace and outdoor area and well as a basement. The basement looks like many poetry slams are staged there, having a small stage and seats around it. There is also a pool table for people to use. All in all the food and dining areas around the school are great and easy to reach. Tyler Mall is also really close by and a great place to hang with friends and eat!

    they do have a cafeteria that cooks and serves food daily. The food is fresh and they have different options of drinks and chips, candy and etc.

    The pre-made, cold-cut sandwiches in the cafeteria are the best options; the hotter meals that are prepared there are less than stellar. Most prefer to drive downtown or to the plaza between Riverside and Magnolia Ave. for lunch rather than eat on campus.

    The cafeteria is called The City Grill. Food is good, not too much of a selection. Some items can be pricey. Overall tasty :) It's open until 8:00PM I think. It's convenient it stays open late, especially in those cold nights at Riverside. You can also work there part-time.

    This was the life at RCC, Greek Life. Sadly in the early 70's it died. If you read about that time in the schools history, it died off like many things that made student life at RCC fun! One of you said that you'd have to wait to get to a university to get involved in Greek Life, sorry in the hey days of the mid-60's it was the life. the Greeks supported more activities than any other organization on campus. We ran fund raisers for The Heart Fund, Cancer Society, March of Dimes and many more. No other group did that. In the 60's and early 70's they wanted to deface the campus and demand that they get funding from the college rather than earn it. Sadly they got their way, and the Music died! Sadly you all missed a really great time. College was fun to go to, and you still had to keep up your grades to be involved. I was a Past President of my fraternity, Lambda Epsilon Beta, Past President of the old AMS and past Man of the Year 1970 and Sophomore of the Year 1970. Things change and sadly and many times when they do, you lose more than what you gain!

    Greek life is not so big at a city college, but from what I have heard it does prepare you for transferring and gets you involved with many different opportunities.
