Looking for something to eat between classes?

UWG Meal Membership & West Georgia Wolf Bucks can help make your life easier, especially if you have no time for cooking, cleaning and shopping between attending classes, studying and driving to school. You can also purchase special meal plans tailored to Commuter student needs. West Georgia Wolf Bucks work on the same principle as bank debit cards. You can use your Wolf Bucks for beverages, snacks, or full meals in all dining locations on campus. You can also use them in vending machines on campus.
