Can I really eat as much as I want in the Dining Hall?
The Dining Hall is an all you care to eat location. You may return to any of the stations for more food during a meal period as many times as you want for refills as long as you’re eating your meal in the Dining Hall. This does not apply to the ReNew takeout option (see below).
