    Chick-Fil-A & Java City on campus. Cafeteria is open most of the day & offers quite a good range of food. The campus is around 20min away from down town Charleston - so much food to choose from there. Plus there is fast food and a walmart in the area.

    There is a chick-fil-a on campus. There is also a Java City! The dinning hall is good most of the time, it has its days though.

    There is an on-campus cafeteria. For the most part, the food is okay. There can be schedule conflicts with the cafeteria and classes, so there is a possibility of missing meals. However, there is a Chick-Fil-A on campus, as well as a coffee shop which offers snacks, smoothies, and various forms of coffee. The campus is close to numerous restaurants, so if scheduling leads to missed meals, students have the option of going off-campus to eat without having to travel too far.

    I ate lunch on campus and the food was awful. Not much variety in the lunch room or on campus at all. The flavor and choices clearly lacked variety and were repetitive, and the guide didn't have a problem confirming this fact. Outside out of their cafeteria they have one Chic-fil-A and a Java City. The best places to eat are about 20-30 minutes out from the school. Unfortunately, the meal plan is included in the room & board. And if you aren't from the area you are required to stay on campus 4 consecutive quarters/semesters.

    The food at Charleston Southern has its ups and downs. Some days the food is actually pretty good,however other days the food isn't all that great. If the cafeteria is not your thing, then beside it is a Chick fil A Express.

    The food is okay. It could be better but that's because it's not moms home cooked meal.

    The cafe and the dinning hall are the hot spots at Charleston Southern were students can enjoy a variety of wholesome dishes.

    They have the divine nine, but there is VERY little involved in Greek life on campus. They do not have Greek housing.
