ACDC does not have a meal plan in the summer. You can purchase and prepare food in the residential hall, or eat at the Bridge cafe, Retreat or off campus.  

  • Poughkeepsie city buses have stops on or near the Vassar campus, with routes that go to Stop & Shop.  New routes and schedules go into effect July 1st.
  • ResLife organizes a weekly shuttle to grocery stores.
  • If you have a bike or feel like a ~2 mile walk each way, Stop & Shop can be reached safely by using some back roads and a portion of the rail trail.
