    Food is a little hit or miss. Some days, the food is really good; others it's just...alright. However, Converse provides options for vegans, vegetarians, and meat-eaters alike. Also, the Innovation Station provides great meals at lunch time. The food isn't as great as I'd hoped, but at least there are plenty of options to choose from.

    Okay, I know what you're thinking. The dining hall can't be great. The food really is wonderful. The chef, Daniel, listens to our requests and tries to implement them. You can submit recipes that you want them to make or specific foods you'd like to see, and they will make them. The cookies and desserts are wonderful, and believe me, this is why the Freshman 15 is a thing. However, as with all dining halls, the food can get repetitive or boring, and there can be the occasional screw up when trying to feed so many people at one time. However, for times like this, there is the on campus Sub Connection, where you can use your meals to get subs, wraps, salads, or soup, instead of the dining hall food.

    Gee occasionally has good food. However, they do have a salad bar and an innovation line that usually has good food. There is also Sub Connection, which is a knock off of Starbucks and Subway. It usually has a long line, but it has the best food. Although, you do get tired of subs and salads after a while.

    At first, you will notice that you're going to poop a lot. It happens to everyone, and it's happened to me. No, you're not going to explode, you're just adjusting to college food! Gee isn't the worst place to eat, and Sub Connection does get old, but the college is doing it's best to make improvements to everything.

    The food is always different. They may have the same things, but it will be cooked at new way. You can always find something to eat.

    there food is good most of the time, but when it's not you can go to SANDELLA'S with your Flex dollars. (freshmen get $200 or $300 depending on your meal plan) the meal plan is include in room and board.

    I've heard good things about the food, but I'm more of a home cooked meal kind of girl.

    There is Gee Dining Hall and Sandella's. Sandella's is a flatbread cafe-ish thing in the student center where you can use Flex Dollars. Gee is the general dining hall. It's not bad, but it's not good. Some days are better than others. It's a cafeteria. They do serve freshly made omelets at Sunday brunch though, so that's a plus. It really just depends on the day.

    Sorry, we can't help here. Converse may have no Greek life, but we refer to the school as one big sorority. We have orientation, we do Big Sis/Lil Sis, we have mixers and events to meet each other: we even have events that you would not expect to be school sponsored: casino nights, Halloween parties, big overnight blowouts.

    It is an all girls campus, so there's not a lot of Greek Life except for I Felta Thi. (I felt a thigh.) It's where the girls dress up as guys, and provide campus with a bunch of laughs. They are amazing, and make wonderful guys.

    Nonexistent. Visit Wofford for that. However some people feel that Converse is like one big sorority, being a women's college and all that.
