    The food isn't bad at all, you have just have to get use to different foods that you're not used to eating. Look forward to having fried chicken Wednesday every week, and also fried fish fridays. Also here at Claflin University we have vegetarian meals that are served everyday for those who do not like meat.

    Sodexho provides the food and dining for Claflin University. The food is okay, but you must eat in moderation. The Freshman 15 is real! The only thing that I would change about dining is the amount of space available for dining.

    Greek life is everywhere on campus. You can go anywhere and see someone from any sorority or fraternity representing their group.

    Can't tell as I'm not into fraternities, but from word of mouth it seems to be the only fun thing as they organize a lot of activities.
