    The food is above average, and some of it is produced on the campus's farm. While vegan options are usually available, the more vegan-friendly dining area is closed on weekends.

    As far as college dining rooms go, I feel pretty satisfied with the amount of options we have and the quality of the food. Dining Services and Sage Cafe try to have local and organic foods as often as possible.

    At Warren Wilson, there are two established places of eating Cowpie and Gladfelter. Cowpie serves delicious vegan and vegetarian food for lunch and dinner. While Gladfelter serves both vegetarian and non-vegetarian food items. Gladfelter is more like an all you can eat buffet.

    Two dining options: the main cafeteria, called Gladfelter, offers lots of variety, including a main bar, salad bar, a hot bar, and an action station. The second option is the student initiated vegan and vegetarian dining area, called Cowpie Cafe, where you're served healthy and delicious by the student crew. Both options serve fresh veggies, fruits, and meat from the WWC garden and farm.

    Great vegan options and home-grown organic meat! The rest is pretty bland though.

    Sudexo food is OK; they are going through renovations so there is going to be more diversity in the type of food served but is a great place for vegans and vegetarians as well as omnivores.

    There are two cafeterias on campus, and as of next year, 2 cafes. Considering how small the campus is, it's really quite a nice choice. The Two Cafeterias are Gladfelter and Cowpie Cafe (vegetarian/ vegan). The existing cafe is called Sage Cafe and the new cafe that will be running next year will be in the bottom floor of the freshman dorm, Sunderland.

    Null and Void. Warren Wilson does not have Fraternities/ Sororities. No hazing or hierarchical structures here!
