3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: The Village is right down the street from the Colleges. There are many places to eat there.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Downtown Claremont has great restaurants + some lower key places.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Nothing too bad but Claremont is a small, sleepy little segement of the greater LA area so it closes early and there isn't that wide of a selection. Basically, just pizza or chinese take out.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: While diverse and mostly delicious, many of the off campus dining options are expensive and thus not compatible with a college-student budget.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Claremont village has lots of options and is a short walk from campus

The choices for dining off campus are not very plentiful in Claremont. The Village is the closest place to campus, but it is relatively expensive for the average college student. The selection is usually fine dining or fast food with very little in between. There are some nearby fast-food chains, but again, the variety is very limited and the choices are even more narrowed during late-night hours. During the day, most off-campus dining is a considerable distance away from the colleges, and the constraints of time and money detour students from making the effort to leave campus. Furthermore, a lot of the choices for off-campus dining require transportation, which can be an issue, in addition to the hassle of parking. The food options on campus are relatively good, so students often choose to eat at the dining halls, use flex dollars at the coffee and snack shops, or buy groceries from the local markets and cook.

Many of the surrounding cities provide wide ranges of food from all corners of the world, and LA boasts a massive list of dining choices, but all of these options require transportation and time, so the majority of students eat on campus and dine outside at night or on the weekends.
