  • I am researching this school and have visited the campus

    I have been in the food court once when visiting the school for a football game in the past and the food was delicious and the food court was very clean, I was really impressed.

    The cafeteria here at the Web is called the Caf; food there is good at the beginning of every semester, but it gradually just gets...plain. The chefs and servers are very nice though; some students have become friends with them. Other than the Caf, we have a Chick-Fil-A, but it is closed on the weekends. There's a place called simply-to-go where you can use a meal-plan or flex-points. When you get your student id card, you are given so many meals/week (that you get to chose--10, 15, or 21), whichever meal plan you get, you get so many flex-points (or money) put on your card. There's a place called sub connection where you can get subs. Next to sub connection is a place where you can get Asian food. Overall though, food and dining is pretty good.

    The cafeteria always has a salad bar, fruit bar, sub bar, vegetarian meal option, fast food meal option, and a couple home cooked options. My favorite would be the home cooked options. You can dine in or take your food/drink to go. Other dining places on campus include the meal exchange areas on campus, as well as SubConnection, Chic-fil-a, Broad River Coffee Company, and World of Wings.

    The food at Gardner-Webb is not the greatest food ever but I haven't met any one who says that their food at college is the best thing that they have ever had. The food served in our caf is the same every day and night which can get boring but the food isn't terrible. We are fortunate to have a Chickfila on campus and a few other restaurants in our student center that have some great food. We also have many inexpensive restaurants in town.

    The dining at GWU provides an exciting and innovative dining services program for the entire community. You can find great food, honest values, and a comfortable atmosphere in which to enjoy it all. You have a variety of restaurants to choose from, all conveniently located within walking distance of on-campus housing, labs/classrooms and many off-campus apartments.
