2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: It is only driving distance chain restaurants that provide crappy food that is easier to eat on campus then off

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Princeton is nearby and so is route 1 so there are many good places to eat if you have a car.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: pretty hard to find some places. but okay with the ones i found.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Most of the restaurants in Princeton are within walking distance of WCC, and there are usually students with cars that are willing to go with their friends to restaurants that aren't close enough to walk. Most of the restaurants offer student discounts, but can still be expensive since they are in downtown Princeton.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: As long as you have the vehicle to get where you're going, then the food options off campus are plenty.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Eating off campus is a good option when you need something different than the food offered on campus and you can't get home for a home-cooked meal. If you need something quick, there's a lot of fast food places nearby, like Wendy's, McDonald's, KFC, and Burger King. If you want to sit down and possibly spend a bit more money, Applebee's and Olive Garden are good places to go. Applebee's has a two for $20 special where two people can get two meals with an appetizer for $20, so you're getting plenty of good food at a good price—which is key on a student budget.

There are also plenty of restaurants in Princeton if you have a car (or if you attend the campus there). Overall, there are plenty of off-campus dining options in the area, regardless of your tastes or dietary specifications.
