Within the last few months, all of the University of Georgia’s dining halls have become certified level one green restaurants by meeting the rigorous requirements set by the Green Restaurant Association (GRA).
The University of Georgia now has room for nearly 1,000 more students this fall.
UGA President Jere Morehead and other university officials filled the lobby of 960-bed Russell Hall Wednesday morning to rededicate the 51-year-old Baxter Street high-rise residence hall, which has been home to tens of thousands of UGA first-year students after opening in 1967.
College dining halls are usually large, cafeteria-style establishments that feed thousands of students quickly three times a day. That is to say, they're not typically seen as producing restaurant-caliber food.
But at some college dining halls, the food is a step above the rest.
