    The food at Chowan is great i love it, the only thing is dinner is served at 5 until 7 so i recommend eating dinner around 6, so you do not have to stand in long lines and go hungry later on.

    The food is not good and the lines are very long. There are a not a lot of choices to pick from and they create there own meals. Get there early because it is small and few seats .The schedule is not good if you have night classes. They don't serve breakfast on weekends.

    The food at Chowan University is like no other. You will definitely have your fair share of good eating, healthy eating, whatever you desire. Our dining hall has various stations to serve your hunger cravings. We have a delicious pizza bar, a fantastic salad bar, we have a sub bar where you pick just about anything you want on your sub, we have a bagel bar that is available all day, a hot foods bar, and so much more! Tuesday's are Fried Chicken day, Thursday's are Quesadilla day, and there are always special meal event days. We also have an on campus grill called Murf's where you can get great hamburgers, hot dogs, chicken tenders, personal pizzas, anything you desire at no extra cost. There are also great restaurant's off campus within walking distance if you want a change of scenery. Let's just say that you can never get enough of the delicious food here.

    The food is pretty good, I'm not the type who changes up my diet, so I'm content with eating pizza all the time. That's the only issue, that the food is a bit repetitive, but I've only been here for a couple of days. Lets see how I feel at the end of May...

    There are a few fraternities and sororities on campus. Greek life is beginning to grow, and I believe that it'll continue to grow.

    There isn't a whole lot of greek life. Those that are on campus are generally talked of well, but there isn't any special privileges for them that I am aware of.
