    The company that runs the food on campus is pretty great. If there is something you do not like about the food then you can submit a comment card to the manager (whose office is on campus) and they can try to change how they make the food or if you want you can submit a recipe of your own to them and they will put it on the food line for the day and will give you credit for the food if it is received well the the students and faculty who enjoy it

    The dining hall is very nice, but the food can be spotty. Ron, the chef who works Mon- Thurs at the grill, is a really cool guy who makes some delicious food when you just don't want pasta. If you decide to go here, I suggest getting to the caf before the 5:15 rush. Also, Papa Joe's, Coyote Jacks, and Mondo's subs are great alternatives if you have the desire for pizza, burgers or chicken, or subs.

    UVA-Wise not only has a cafeteria for students and faculty to purchase and eat food, but they also have other dining options as well. Overall, they have plenty of options.

    The food is really good. I do wish we had more variety, but with the town not being that big it is quite easy to go to one of the resturaunts/ fast food places.

    The options for dining are limited, and over-priced. Healthy options are scarce. However, the biggest concern regarding food and dining on campus at UVA Wise is for students with special dietary needs. Technically accommodations can be made for these student, but this is not clearly stated.

    the food in the cafeteria is mostly pretty good but is occasionally questionable (as is all school cafeteria food) but there are 3 separate restaurants on campus, a sub shop, a fast food place (hamburgers, chicken sandwiches, salads, chicken strips etc.), and a cafe style shop (excellent pizzas, salads, blt, club sandwiches, coffee, etc). there is also an actual cafe in the library, with hot, iced, and frozen coffees, lattes, cappuccinos, hot chocolates, teas, etc. and they also have paninis, blts, parfaits, muffins, snack cakes and that sort of thing!

    I myself am not a member of any of the Greek organizations on campus but I have many friends who are and I have been to a few of their events and they are just wonderful. Greek life at UVa-Wise has so many interesting people and the activities hey host or the things they sell for fundraising is great. One ear they were selling ground coffee to get money to go to one of their events and I just thought that was a great idea. What better way to gt fundraising then to sell good coffee to students for a decent price.

    we are a strictly no hazing school. there are three sororities: phi sigma sigma, theta phi alpha, and alpha sigma tau. there are four fraternities: alpha sigma phi, kappa sigma, pi lambda phi, and pi kappa phi. they are all nationally recognized chapters. if there is a fraternity or sorority that you would like added to this list, all you have to do is ask! the greek judicial board on campus in collaboration with the greek life faculty will all be happy to assist in any way!!
