The University of the South has one comprehensive "meal plan" that is required of all students in residence. It consists of two fundamental components that ensure quality, variety, convenience and value. The first meal plan component is the all-you-care-to-eat McClurg Dining operation that provides the majority of student meals on campus. Students can come and go as they like at McClurg on an unlimited basis. McClurg is open 7 days a week from 7am until 8pm during academic periods. Its multi-station "marketplace" design allows students to browse menu options and customize their dining experience at each meal.
The culinary arts are fundamental to the dining experience at Sewanee. Professionally trained chefs with decades of experience prepare our recipes from scratch. We source food from the University's own farm, use local vendors, prepare seasonal foods, and use the best ingredients we can find.
We are committed to maintaining menu integrity, nutritional content, and balance. We prepare food thoughtfully from fresh ingredients with the understanding that the food we serve affects academic and athletic performance—wellness in general. Sewanee Dining's menu diversity and long service hours are a deliberate effort to ensure that there is always something appealing readily available to students.
