    The cafeteria food gets nasty and repetitive after a couple of weeks of attending the school. Eventhough JWU is known for culinary, the staff and students aren't able to share there food or cook gourmet meals for the non- culinary students in our cafeteria. Instead we have to rely on foodservice company to make and serve the food and its mostly nasty.

    They give you plenty of meal swipes but for being a big culinary school you would think they have better food

    There is one dining hall at JWU, set up buffet style. While you have many options and the food is good, it was not what I was expecting from a school known for it's culinary program. However, they are very willing to work with the students and have a comments box which they read and reply to almost daily. You are able to purchase reusable plastic containers you can fill with food and take back to your room, as well as eco-friendly JWU cups! One thing thing to know: they do not accept cash. Charlotte is a beautiful city with innumerable amazing restaurants for all price ranges. http://www.dineoncampus.com/jwcharlotte/

    Ironically enough for a school that prides itself on being a leader in the culinary education field the cafeteria food is just that, standard cafeteria food. Some of the nice things about Johnson and Wales' cafeteria are: it is buffet style, there are lots of healthy options, and the menu is fairly diverse. Another positive outlook is that culinary majors rarely have to eat in the cafeteria because they are eating everything they make in class.

    The dining hall has so many different options it's sometimes hard to choose. Our dining hall has a salad bar, a the grill bar, an on the spot bar, an around the world bar, a balanced U bar, a gluten free bar, a brick oven bar, soup options, as well as everyday options like cereal or waffles.

    Johnson and Wales has four different campuses to choose from and each campus is a little different. The Denver Colorado campus, North Miami Florida campus, and the Rhode Island campus all have Greek life. The Charlotte campus does not yet have Greek life but is expected to join the other campuses in this department by Fall of 2014.

    JWU Charlotte doesn't have affiliated Greek Life yet, but it's a continually discussed topic among students and staff for the near future.

    Unfortunately, there is no established Greek life. There is an unofficial Greek fraternity but the school does not recognize it at this time.

    There is a fraternity that is not associated with the school but other than that this campus does not offer greek life and says that they don't want to be associated with it.
