To most college students, apart from academics, there are two near-universal worries: Getting across campus and getting fed. What started as a simple program that read off dining hall menus for a UConn student and his roommates has grown to include a bus tracker and is now a “skill” available to Amazon Alexa users.
On-campus students can choose between three different meal plans: The ultimate plan, value plan and custom plan, according to the Dining Services website. All three plans include unlimited access to dining halls during operating hours.
The University of Connecticut’s Dining Services plans to proceed with the implementation of 12-ounce cups in most of the dining halls around campus, according to director of dining services C. Dennis Pierce.
