    At first, you will notice that you're going to poop a lot. It happens to everyone, and it's happened to me. No, you're not going to explode, you're just adjusting to college food! Gee isn't the worst place to eat, and Sub Connection does get old, but the college is doing it's best to make improvements to everything.

    The food is always different. They may have the same things, but it will be cooked at new way. You can always find something to eat.

    there food is good most of the time, but when it's not you can go to SANDELLA'S with your Flex dollars. (freshmen get $200 or $300 depending on your meal plan) the meal plan is include in room and board.

    I've heard good things about the food, but I'm more of a home cooked meal kind of girl.

    There is Gee Dining Hall and Sandella's. Sandella's is a flatbread cafe-ish thing in the student center where you can use Flex Dollars. Gee is the general dining hall. It's not bad, but it's not good. Some days are better than others. It's a cafeteria. They do serve freshly made omelets at Sunday brunch though, so that's a plus. It really just depends on the day.

    Gee Dining Hall & Sandalas provide good food. Gee does a good job with a different variety in food. The food is pretty tasty as well.

    Converse dining is very nice for the most part. You can find problems at any place you eat in the world, but Converse tries their best to provide as many options at every meal as possible.

    The food is not fantastic, but it is better than a lot of college cafeteria food that I have tried. Plus, the meal plan is included in your tuition.

    Nonexistent. Visit Wofford for that. However some people feel that Converse is like one big sorority, being a women's college and all that.
