  • Mar-11-2014 I am researching this school and have visited the campus

    Not the best in the world, but the cafeteria is still new. I would say the food will improve over time.

    Since the school is building and growing the food is ok but definitely not top notch. I expect in the next year it will be great though. Especially with all the changes they're making now.

    There are many options at the University of Charleston. There are an abundance of meal plans that can be fitted with any kind of budget. The dinning areas are clean and well taken care of.

    The food and dining at University of Charleston is always mouth-watering and satisfying. Each day the cafeteria cooks three meals a day, with plenty of options to choose from. They provide many choices from pizza to a warm hearty full course meal. The cafeteria is accessible between classes or during a break, and always a good place to hang out. The amazing aromas will lead your nose to the cafeteria.

    I am not sure what Greek life is on campus because I am in the Pharmacy graduate program.
