Ever since the University Center became the new Seacobeck in the fall of 2015, few and current students have experienced meals at both locations. Only seniors have been here long enough to remember the quaint dining experience of Seacobeck Hall, and a large portion of them dropped their meal plan after moving off campus or are transfers who also never stepped foot inside the old building. Students who have experienced both, however, have fond memories of Seacobeck, in particular, brunch nostalgia.

The University of Mary Washington is one of the best schools and communities someone could be a part of, in my opinion, and I believe the majority of my classmates would agree. Our school has a great campus, a caring staff, administrators, faculty and countless opportunities for students.

Having heard student comments last semester, Campus Dining at the University of Mary Washington has made changes to its “Anytime Dining” meal plans. Freshman students, who are required to purchase the “Anytime Dining” meal plan, had many complaints about the plan because their meals could only be spent in the UMW Dining Hall. This semester, Campus Dining is allotting “Anytime Dining” students up to 30 meals a semester to use at any on campus retail location.
