Dining Services

Chartwells provides excellent food service for the Covenant community. All resident students are on a full meal plan, which includes "unlimited seconds." Smaller meal plan options are available for student teachers and students who live off campus.

Our dining hall is known as the Great Hall, and it is like no other. Located in our flagship building, Carter Hall, the Great Hall was once the South's largest ballroom. Although it's no longer a luxury hotel ballroom, it still offers stunning mountaintop views.

"Profiles in Good Taste" is Chartwells' operating concept, and their daily goal is to exceed your expectations for your dining experience while promoting good health. We are committed to innovation and continuing to offer new menu items.
