5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: It's more convenient to just eat on campus, but the off-campus options are pretty good, too. I occasionally eat off-campus on the weekends or for special occasions.

1 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: You have to walk a mile to go any where and there are very few options because it is a ver suburban area full of old people. The community has to be quiet at 11pm and the stores close at 9pm.

Off-Campus Dining: I love going off campus for food if I can. There are awesome options (there's a wonderful all you can eat sushi place in the village) and the food is high quality and affordable.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Off-campus dining in The Village is so good, but is a 20 minute walk away and tends to be pricey.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Mudd students don't have much time to go off campus.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

The Village is the closest place to dine off campus-unfortunately, it is also the most expensive. Going to eat in Claremont usually involves visiting parents, students who have recently hit the lottery (a rarity), or students who already have decent paying jobs (even more of a rarity). There are some places that aren't extremely expensive, but the cheapest option is a two-minute drive to the nearest Del Taco. If you're seeing someone, the restaurants in the Village are a good choice for a sit-down date, that is if you have already grown tired of the outdoor picnic tables at In-N-Out.

Although Claremont tends to be expensive, there are plenty of cheaper and more desirable options if you have a car. Fast food is a few minutes away, and if you feel like it, you can always drive to Los Angeles, where dining options abound. The best off-campus dining for most students, however, occurs during parents' weekend. And the absence of fast food, a college staple, makes it awfully hard on the wallet to eat off campus regularly for most students. If you can get around the cost, Claremont does offer students a fairly healthy selection, in terms of types of food. From Mexican to Chinese to Italian to wings, there are always options available within a 10-minute drive. For more unusual items, however, you will almost definitely have to make a longer, more exhausting trip.
