"Because students at Trident Technical College are typically older and do not live on campus, there are fewer dining facilities[than at The College of Charleston]. However, "The Spot" on Trident Tech's Main Campus offers a wide variety of breakfast and lunch items to students. For example, lunch offers grill items, sandwiches, salads and fresh sushi rolled daily by the cafe's own sushi chef.

Students also learn how they can include nutritional value in the food they prepare. "
