    The food is okay there are days when they offer special lunches, or dinners. Like occasionally there is breakfast for dinner, lobster, or even sushi for lunch. The cafe is open to reviews and usually they listen to the reviews. I asked for more vegetarian/vegan options and in the next couple of weeks there were so many options for me to eat! Plus the staff is so nice, I love them.

    At first, I was impressed with the food options because they have much more variety than other schools. Now, I feel Peace could do a better job of serving food that is still healthy, but also appealing. I don't know too many college students who get excited over grilled eggplant...

    The dining hall has just been renovated. It includes flat screen tvs, high chairs/ bar tables. It has a restaurant atmosphere. The food is very repetitive.

    Food is good for the most part. Usually there are good options of food. The operating hours are good, except for the weekend when the dining hall hours are reduced.

  • I am researching this school and have visited the campus

    William Peace University is conveniently located near several local restaurants and have a dining hall of their own. They are even located near a Krispy Kreme!

    Dining hall is so-so, Peace Perk is acceptable, vending machines are well stocked. We're right in the middle of downtown Raleigh, the capital city, so there are dozens of lovely cafes and eateries within walking distance.

    Don't plan on eating in the cafeteria everyday. This stuff isn't healthy at all and while sometimes it's good--sometimes it's ALL bad.

    Their is only one sorority on campus, in which I formed with my friends. It is a community service based sorority. WPU just recently went co-ed, so we are hoping that more sororities and fraternities form.
