  • I am accepted here and planning to attend soon

    I had complimentary lunch at the Charger Cafe whenever I visited and it was good! I feel there is also a good span of choices compared to what I am used to.

    The caf (recently remodeled) looks nice, but the food quality is often subpar. The other dining options are nice (except for CFA), and there is good variety but you will go through Charger Bucks fairly quickly. The Gardenview Café at the Bevill Center accepts meal swipes as well and has much better food, albeit with fewer options. If you need a quick meal, Sandellas accepts meal swipes and has fast food.

    Obviously expensive, but delicious. The Freshman 15 will almost feel worth it once you get a taste of those WOW fries and chicken wings.

    It's pretty average. Average restaurants and cafeteria. There's a Papa John's, Chick-Fil-A, Sandella's, World of Wings, Dunkin Donuts, 2 Blue's Convenience Stores, and a couple of scattered places with less impact. Oh, and most of these are in different buildings on campus. Almost all of it is between fast food and diner quality. Nothing special, but everything is between 4 and 10 dollars

    Whether you prefer dining in the cafeteria with other students or getting something on the go, UAH has unbeatable options! The Cafeteria serves up a meaty and vegetarian menu at every meal, allowing flexibility for students with dining needs. The campus also contains a Chick-fil-a, Papa Johns, Starbucks, and other desirable meal options; including a Dunk and Donuts coming in 2014! In choosing a meal option, most students prefer option number two which gives them 14 meals in the cafeteria and $125 charger bucks to use at any of the on campus food providers.

    Not greek, but friends with tons of greeks. They accept everyone and there is always someone like you in the greek life. Can go greek at any time not just a freshman thing. Even if you are not greek like me, they still accept you and will still be your friend.

    Pfft. there is a coul-de-sac of Greek houses. They mainly focus on service and community work. Apparently they throw parties and stuff, but i live off campus so I wouldn't know.
