    Wag gets old before you even internalize you moved away from home, and Food dollars always seem to run out before the end of the semester. Keep up with your meal plan and know how much is left on your account. I recommend the plans with meal swipes per semester, because the others expire weekly which is often wasteful. Food Dollars transfer is left over to the spring semester, but then expire before summer. There are a few good places on campus, and Landwich is a great option. My biggest complaint is in between classes their is extensive lines and traffic.

    Wag is buffet style and mostly pretty good. Hawks nest is the best place to eat on campus to me with Dub's following second.

    Wagner Dining Hall, or 'Wag,' as the students call it is great! All of our cooks are so friendly and willing to make special dishes for you. The dining hall is great with making dishes and decorations to correlate with the season or holiday coming up. Besides the dining hall, the University has many other eating facilities all over campus, anything from sushi to a Chick-Fil-A sandwich you can find it on campus.

    The food in the dining hall is average. I don't expect a high class meal at a dining hall, however with the amount of tuition I pay I do except to have my food prepared fresh and to be cooked properly. I have not encountered any horrible food disasters but sometimes sandwiches will not be cooked all the way, or there might be a shortage of a certain food. However, I have experienced great food in the dining hall that I actually would brag about, such as pork carnitas and pulled pork sandwiches! Overall, the dining hall is in an ideal location that is easy for everyone to get to, and they offer a lot of choices, even for people who are vegetarians, gluten free, etc. I also like how there are other places to eat on campus, such as Dubs and Landwich. These places provide a great alternative if you ever get tired of the usual dining hall food.

    We have great food here! Wagoner Dining hall has a buffet style where you swipe in and get as much food as you want. In the mornings you can build your own omelette, and on Fridays for lunch we have all you can eat sushi! There's also Wag Out that is open pretty late for people that are up studying, Hawk's Nest (with Chick fil A, sandwiches, Mexican food, hotdogs, the Varsity Grill, Subway, etc).

    The normal cafeteria is good being a college campus. What is nice is they have an extra building with some known food chains like chick-fil-a.

    It's alright, but they serve a lot of the samething over and over again. And you would have to go at the right time or the dining staff will be seriously lacking.

    Although I didn't rush, there is a lot of sororities and frats on campus. It was weird getting used to at first, but I might rush later on if I have the time.

    I am in a fraternity at UNCW. I understand Greek life might not be for everyone, but I highly suggest to at least rush. It's a great experience that helps you meet people. For too long, Greek life everywhere has had a bad stigma associated with it. From my experience, the fraternities at UNCW are doing all they can to bring respect and appreciation to the Greek community.

    Greek Life is big on campus but definitely is not the only way to get involved socially. I would say it is pretty even on the people who do greek life to the people who do not. Even if you are not apart of Greek Life you can still go to all social events they may hold.

    While visiting seen a ton of Sororities and Fraternities around campus. In particular they were doing a week long stationary bike-a-long. The Frat brothers were hanging out and rotating between to try to meet their goal.

    Though I don't participate it seems pretty normal. Friends who have joined are happy and seem full-filled by their activities. I do not believe they have houses on campus.
