Campus Dining: The cafeteria is open most of the night or you bring food from home. You may not even need to bring anything to eat depending on how long/often you are at the school for classes each day.

Campus Dining: I don't find any Halal food and I feel very terrible because there are lot of Muslims in the campus. I recommend to have a Halal Food!

Campus Dining: There are several places to eat. The main dining hall has a buffet, an Asian food section, an ice-cream/frozen yogurt/milkshake section, a salad bar/buffet, a deli section, a pizza place, a grill, and the refrigerated section has kosher sandwiches/wraps, as well as sushi and cold pastas. There's also a section by the grill with dinner foods that are halal for Muslim people and there's always vegetarian dishes as well. There's even a soup station.

Then there's a coffee station in the rotunda for students on their way to class to grab a drink or a pastry if they need it.

I think the prices vary. It runs a little steep for the most part. I don't have a meal plan, so I don't know much about it.

The City College dining hall is a very interesting place to be. It is always kept clean, and there are always staff members tidying up. When it comes to the food itself, the dining hall has an assorted menu to choose from. There are hot meals made on site everyday, fast food options, and a large salad and macaroni bar for those who like to watch their weight. The meals are usually tasty, but some—like the burgers and fries—are more popular than others. Unfortunately, everything is pricey, a major set back if you're strapped for cash.

Despite the wide variety of food options, the dining hall could really use a face lift. Prices could definitely be cut, and staff mood could be improved. Service can really stink during the midday when everyone goes to grab a bite, and finding a seat can be a pain in the you know what. Apart from that, the dining hall can be a nice place to hang out with friends.
