Carolina- Dining- Services to 'specialize in variety
By CATHERINE COWAN
It is noon on the first day of classes.
YouVe just gotten out of psych and
econ and you're starving. Whether
you decide you want a hamburger,
lasagna. tacos or a ham and swiss.
you can get it at Lenoir Dining Hall.
According to a pamphlet put out
by Carolina Dining Services, there
are live dining halls and six snack
bars open up to 17 hours a day across
campus during the school year. The
main dining hall, Lenoir, located in
the middle of campus next to the Pit,
serves breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Lenoir features daily entrees, Mex
ican and Italian Bars, a salad bar,
a deli sandwich shop called The
Cutting Board, and a Make Your
University Square Chapel Hill 967-8935
Own Yogurt Bar.
The lower level of Lenoir houses
three dining shops. H.B. Quick's
serves hamburgers, fried chicken and
other fast food items. Broadway
Pizza features homemade pizzas and
a salad bar, and will deliver pizza
during the evening hours. Sweet
Sensations, a dessert shop, sells
cakes, cookies, ice cream and frozen
South Campus has its own main
cafeteria, Chase Hall. Chase features
most of the same items as Lenoir,
including a main entree line, deli,
salad bar, and ethnic food bars.
Carolina Dining Services also
operates six convenience stores,
located all over campus. These stores
sell snacks, grocery items and school
supplies. You can pay with cash or
a meal card.
Besides serving meals, Carolina
Dining Services is working with the
Wellness Resource Center in Student
Health Services to make available
two kinds of handouts about food
and nutrition. One, the "Good,
Better, Best" series, comes in small
hand leaflets, and covers topics such
as calcium deficiency. The other
series, nutritional news interviews,
covers topics such as ways to lower
sugar and salt intake, popcorn as a
low-calorie snack, and which herbs
go best with which foods. The
information is geared to be fun and
educational at the same time.
All dorm residents are required to
buy a $100 meal plan each semester.
The Carolina Meal Plan works with
a computerized meal card. The initial
amount you deposit is recorded on
the card, and every time you use your
card, the amount you spend is
deducted. Carolina Dining Services
advises you to make your deposit by
mail before coming to UNC. As long
as you pay within a week before the
first day of classes, you will be able
to pick up your card at Lenoir during
You can buy a meal plan for more
than $100 per semester, and the
bigger the plan you buy, the more
bonus dollars you will get. Bonus
dollars are added to the amount you
purchase in varying degrees, starting
at two percent for deposits over $200
and going up to seven percent for
deposits above $700. Thus, a $775
deposit will buy you $829 worth of
meals, a $615 deposit will buy you
$652 worth of meals, and a $250
deposit will buy you $255 worth of
There are a couple of other rules
people with meal cards should know
about. Any unused money on your
card after the $100 minimum will
automatically be carried over into the
spring. Also, if at the end of the spring
semester you still have money lef
tover (again, over the $100 min
imum), you can get a full refund as
long as you apply sometime before
If you lose your meal card, contact
the dining service immediately and
they will invalidate the card. The
replacement fee for lost cards is $10
for the first time and $15 every time
Carolina Dining Services is oper
ated by the Marriott Corp., which
took it over from ARA Inc. in June.
