    The Mess hall food is not the worst, but definitely not the best. Dining in there during knob year is an experience in and of itself.

    The mess hall is improving. Vegetarian style food is served for those that need and want it. The mess is mostly family style

    You get three meals a day although it may not always be the best quality food but considering that it has to be made for a lot of people and that it is free. I would say it is alright considering the circumstances,

    The meals aren't the best when it comes to quality, but you will get the nutrition necessary when you need to fuel your body for the rigorous physical activity you go through as a cadet.

    Underclassmen eat dinner together in a family style dinner. For breakfast and lunch underclassmen eat professionally.

    The food is probably one of the worst things. Often times undercooked or old. Also, there are only about 8 or so meals that they rotate out and after the first year you've eaten the same meal a few hundred times. That gets old very fast.

    Five stars, not because of the school food. The mess hall seems like it serves mostly your basic hot dogs and such; regular stuff you'd make at home when you don't want to go out of your way. Outside of the school, however, is Charleston, and they're a major food town with many amazing places to eat.

    The Citadel is unique in that it mainly has companies just as the military does, although it does have academic fraternities: one for business majors and one for engineering majors.

    Hard to explain. There are some societies here, but basically the life in the barracks is life a sorority/fraternity. Knob year is like initiation rights on steroids for a year.

    There are no frats or sororities, instead there are companies which make up the school. Every cadet is put into a company for all of his time at the Citadel and forms a very strong bond with his company, much like a frat.

    There really isn't any, but you won't need it. The brotherhood/sisterhood you will find between yourself and your classmates is better than any college frat or sorority. I can promise you that!
