The 24/7 dining hall at uOttawa can seem like a magical place during the first week, but if you are a student with a mandatory meal plan- you know it only goes downhill from there. Here’s a list of the things every uOttawa student has thought at least once while in the cafeteria:
1.“Oh look, it’s hot dog and pizza day…again.”
Pizza day isn’t as exciting when it’s the fourth one that week.
2.) “Where is the international food even supposed to be from…?”
The assortment of rice and meats always leaves us questioning where it’s originated from, and what the difference is between all of the other food.
3.) “THE ICE CREAM MACHINE IS FINALLY WORKING- never mind.”
It’s a miracle for the ice cream machine to actually be in order.
4.) “I’m definitely not pressing the happy face button today.”
We’ve all at least once walked by the happy-or-not machine, and aggressively hit the angry face button for dramatic affect.
5.) “Must. Avoid. lunch at 1:00 P.M.”
All hell breaks loose once those 11:30 classes are over.
6.) When the vegetarian option for burgers and fries… is the fries.
“Guess I’m having salad for dinner AND lunch today.”
7.) “I should try cooking something in the My Pantry kitchen!”
*Walks right by it*
Maybe next week.
8.) Nothing beats 3:00 A.M. french fry runs.
There truly is nothing that satisfies late-night munchies more.
9.) Drinking your body weight in chocolate milk.
The unlimited supply makes it all the more appealing. You can never get enough calcium, right?
10.) They save all of the good food for tours.
It only gets worse from there, folks. I can assure you the extravagant fruit displays, and selections of artesianal appetizers aren’t a regular thing.
