3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Most off-campus cuisine is in nearby towns. Transportation is necessary to get to them but there are lots of options and something for almost everyone.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: The off-campus dining for TCNJ students is pretty good. There are a lot of cheap fast food places, convenient stores, and privately own restaurants. There is a wide variety of foods to eat. I am very satisfied with the off-campus dining.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Not much variety. Mostly bad Italian food places. No good late night options and no student discounts at any restaurants.

2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Because the area is not centered towards the college, the off campus dining options are average. There is only one late-night dining option and the food and service are consistently terrible and unhealthy.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Area is not the best at night. Daytime malls close.

There are restaurants aplenty in the vicinity of TCNJ's campus. Students choose between pizzerias, pubs, bars and grills, sub shops, Asian and Indian restaurants, fried chicken kitchens, fast food, delis, Italian restaurants, diners, and more. This large selection of options provides students with budget-friendly alternatives to the College eateries.

A short distance away is New Hope, Pa., which offers a selection of fine, reasonably priced, and excellent eateries, as well as plenty of quirky shops. Route 1, especially the Market Fair and Quaker Bridge areas, offers eateries of even greater variety, and its short distance and heterogeneity make it a preferred destination for off-campus dining. Also, TCNJ's link with Campusfood.com makes for easy access and delivery to students ordering food to their rooms or lounges.
