Here's what others are saying about the UGA meal plan:
There’s a lot of options on the meal plan. I think there’s been even more variety
offered as the semester goes on, from both vegetables and even the desserts!
—Ayanna Turner, UGA '23
The variety of food is great and on any given day there are protein and vegetable
options available. There are also some mainstay items that you can rely on that you
know will always be there! I love the expanded options this semester.
—John Montoya, UGA '24
I have the 180 blocks plus 300 Paw Points which averages out to about 2 meals a day
at the dining halls, but that is more than enough. With the addition of Paw Points,
I’m offered a variety of restaurants I can enjoy!
—Ethan Dawidowicz, UGA '24
I am on the 7 Day All-Access meal plan and I love the flexibility of being able to
come into the dining halls anytime, meaning I can pop in to get a cup of coffee at
O-House or a scone from Bolton whenever I want. I definitely make use of the full
value of my plan!
