What Students Are Saying

3.82 Average Rating
Food and dining services are quite appealing but sometimes, students wish they were at home because no matter how tasty a food is or one tries to make the food, it can not be compared to home made food. Some times, provision of the kind of foods students need are not provided.

the lunch provided at the open house in november was delicious. the food was fresh, and prepared nicely. although i haven't had much of a chance to see the food facilities that are there, i am sure they will have a good and nutitious variety.
Vanessa from Chester, SC
We are a veggie friendly school. I'm a complete carnivore, for the most part, so trying to find something to curb my appetite is hard sometimes.
Kayla from Inman, SC
Food is a little hit or miss. Some days, the food is really good; others it's just...alright. However, Converse provides options for vegans, vegetarians, and meat-eaters alike. Also, the Innovation Station provides great meals at lunch time. The food isn't as great as I'd hoped, but at least there are plenty of options to choose from.

Okay, I know what you're thinking. The dining hall can't be great. The food really is wonderful. The chef, Daniel, listens to our requests and tries to implement them. You can submit recipes that you want them to make or specific foods you'd like to see, and they will make them. The cookies and desserts are wonderful, and believe me, this is why the Freshman 15 is a thing. However, as with all dining halls, the food can get repetitive or boring, and there can be the occasional screw up when trying to feed so many people at one time. However, for times like this, there is the on campus Sub Connection, where you can use your meals to get subs, wraps, salads, or soup, instead of the dining hall food.
Victoria from Murrells Inlet, SC
The food is always different. They may have the same things, but it will be cooked at new way. You can always find something to eat.
