Due to discussions in the Dining Committee the Riverview Café will be extending the main entrée for dinner from 8 to 9pm starting November 30th. Riverview will also be lowering the cost of late night dining after 9pm to the lunch rate of $5.69 for cash and $5.12 for Blugold and Declining Balance. If you are interested in voicing your opinion or just curious about what goes on in the Dining Committee; join us Thursdays at 4pm in the Potawatomi Room (unless specified otherwise) in the Davies Center.

New To-Go Program

Starting November 30th Blugold Dining will introduce a new environmentally friendly to-go program in the cafeterias. The new to-go program conforms to the goals of the strategic plan of the University to become more green and sustainable. The Riverview Café will only be offering reusable to-go containers; no disposable containers will be available. The Terrace will offer both the reusable and the disposable containers. The disposable drink cup and cutlery set will still be available with the to-go containers. There is no cost for the reusable to-go container, but a small refundable deposit is required. Just bring your used container back and we will give you a new one. If you are done with your reusable to-go container, bring it back and you will be refunded your deposit. All deposits will be refunded based on the method of deposit. If you used your Blugold Card to pay for the deposit that is how you will be refunded. If you lose or damage the container your deposit will be forfeited.

The hours of the to-go program will be changing as well. The Terrace will have the to-go option until close every night and Riverview Café will have the reusable to-go container until 9pm. There will be no late night options in the cafeterias. The to-go option will remain at one to-go a day in both cafeterias. Please feel free to contact the Blugold Dining Office at 836-5261 or email us at if you have any questions about the new to-go program.

The 50/50 Block Meal Plan Recap

We had a couple of questions about the new 50/50 block plan that we would like to go over with you. The 50/50 block plan is a meal plan that gives you 50 cafeteria meal “swipes” and $50 to use in any retail dining location for only $300. This plan DOES roll over from year to year until you end your relationship with the university. The 50/50 Block Plan is available to all students living off campus. Chancellor’s Hall and all faculty. This is a great way for you to grab a meal when it is convenient for you. If you have any other questions about the 50/50 Block Plan or any of the other meal plans feel free to contact the Blugold Dining office at 836-5261 or contact the Blugold Card Office.
