    The food is great on campus is fantastic. Bistro and Liberty dining hall are great depending on what times, and days you go. And on Friday and Saturday nights Bistro has a window that is open from 11pm to 2am, and every night it is a different thing. Aside from the dining halls you can spend your dining dollars at Chick fil a and Einsteins Bagels.

    The dining halls in Charleston, like every dining hall at a college is not the best, but what can you do that's college. But if you do have the money to spend Charleston is know for having some of the best restaurants in the United States.

    I adore the meal plans (swiping every 30 minutes!). I don't eat much in one sitting so it's nice to be able to keep going for more at a decent cost. Plus there are many selections for food!

    There are a bunch of places to eat but you have to be ready to spend some money if you're not in a dinning hall, it isn't cheap.

    There are a lot of different dining halls to choose from. Although, I have not had any of the food yet, It looked very good and tasty. One of the dining halls looked like a perfect place to make friends!

    Greek Life at the College of Charleston is very big, majority of the people at the school boys and girls are involved in Greek Life.

    Lots of different fraternities and sororities you may chose to join if you'd like but you don't have to join to find friends you don't have to spend money to buy friends

    Greek life is about the same as at any school I terms of population percentage, and if you're friends with Greek people, they can typically get you into the parties.

    Greek life here is pretty big, and pretty cool if you have the time for it. Rush week is insane and a lot of fun, and joining Greek Life is a great way to meet new friends.

    I'm not in Greek life nor do I ever plan on understanding it. It's a very small part this school, it's there but not necessary.
