Why I've got to eat somewhere else

The U has been less than friendly in the morning.

I stop by Middlebrook Hall’s cafeteria, thinking I’d slap down a few bucks to eat with the students.

Yeah, right. No walk-ins here.

The woman at the information desk explains that you have to be part of a meal plan to eat there — or be the guest of a student.

What’s this?

Back in my University of Georgia days, you could just pay cash if you weren’t on the plan.

Whether it’s security or payment issues or whatever — it ain’t right, I say.

Man, things have changed.
