Univ. of Tenn. nixes plan to force all students to buy dining dollars

The move was eliminated after a student survey found students were not in favor of the idea.

Nov. 18—The proposal by UT to require all undergraduates to purchase $300 worth of dining dollars each semester has been tabled.

The UT Student Government Association’s Dining Services Committee met with UT administrators and Aramark officials to discuss the potential dining change. SGA brought research and student reactions to the proposal while SGA President Jake Baker detailed the proposal and what the SGA hoped to do with it moving forward.
