Here’s the good news for the poor and hungry students: delicious food is available within a few miles from campus, and restaurants near the school are priced reasonably for college students. Downtown Greenville offers a variety of food choices at reasonable prices, as well, but not as cheap as the ones near campus. In a small town, there are a lot of restaurants to check out. Even though the food is cheap, students shouldn’t worry about the quality of the food. Most restaurants value their customers, use fresh ingredients, and keep their kitchen clean. Local restaurants sometimes offer students special discounts or coupons. A calendar of events is distributed at the beginning of the school year, which is a brochure that contains information on school events, local business advertisements, and coupons. Getting to know local restaurant owners and servers is very easy, and it is a tip that makes off-campus dining more fun.
Being a vegetarian or a vegan is a little bit harder in the South, since most restaurants have meat-oriented main courses. Even though there are menus for vegetarians or vegans in a majority of the restaurants, the dishes are not as good as the rest of the menu.
