            At Ohio University, we serve 3 million meals each year to students with an astonishing
         range of tastes and needs—from vegetarians to burger-and-pizza addicts, from students with

         to eat well on a student budget and within a student schedule. Our approach offers value

         and variety with more than just dining halls available to you. All of our dining venues are
         conveniently located, with extensive service hours. We have a variety of menu items, services,
