Try New Flavors for Free!

Blugold Dining is excited to host a Tasting featuring some new Pepsi flavors on Wednesday, March 30 from 5 – 7 p.m. in the Hilltop Food Court. Two of the new flavors are part of the newest Mountain Dew fan vote and the other two are Pepsi’s new Citrus Blast and Diet Citrus Blast which are very similar to Squirt.

You may remember DEWmocracy which was the online campaign to vote for the next Mountain Dew. Well, FanDEWmonium is the new, diet version. The competition is between Diet Mountain Dew Supernova with a strawberry melon flavor and Diet Mountain Dew Voltage with its raspberry citrus blend.

We will have all flavors for you to test and we encourage you to go online and vote for your favorite Diet Dew. You can either visit or Voting ends April 3rd at 8 p.m.

“Two Flavors. One Winner. You pick the next Diet Mountain Dew.”

Happy Spring Break!

Well it sure doesn’t feel like Spring with this chilly wintery weather, does it? Well, we’re doing what we can to keep you toasty warm! Marketplace will be open this week with our cooks in Blu Plate Diner and sandwich artists in SubConnection ready to serve you!

Since the halls are scarce and classrooms empty, we will have limited hours all week. With the exception of the furlough day on Friday, we’ll be open each day from 7:30 a.m. – 3 p.m. in Marketplace.

We look forward to you keeping us company during this not-so-springy, Spring Break!

New Compostable “To-Go” Policy

Due to the high cost of our disposable compostable containers, Blugold Dining will begin charging $1.00 for a compostable “to-go” container on Monday, March 28. These disposable compostable containers are only available in the Terrace on lower campus.

However, keep in mind that there is an alternative option—our reusable “to-go” containers! This option requires a $5 deposit for a large container and $3 deposit for a soup cup; but the best part is that your deposit is fully refunded when you return the containers making this option essentially free!

Our compostable program conforms to the goals of the strategic plan of the University to become more green and sustainable, and we are proud to be a part of it and offer two environmentally friendly options!
