If you need to speak with someone regarding your symptoms, please call 919.966.6603 any time between 8AM – 5PM, or call 911 if the situation is urgent. If you have questions about coronavirus, please visit the University’s information page or the CDC’s information page.  

If you’re feeling under the weather, don’t come to the dining halls! You should get rest and make sure you don’t spread your germs all over the dang place! Don’t worry, we don’t want to leave you starving – if you can’t come to the dining halls because you’re sick or injured, designate a Get Well Soon Buddy. A Get Well Soon Buddy is someone who DOES NOT show symptoms of illness and can pick up your meals for you. In the meantime, try to visit our friends at Campus Health to help you recover.

Here are the two options your Get Well Soon Buddy can grab for you:

1. Dining Halls To-Go!

As long as our dining halls are open, your Get Well Soon Buddy can pick up meals for you at either Top of Lenoir or Chase dining halls. Simply fill out our Get Well Soon form, then forward the confirmation email to your Buddy so they can show it to the cashiers as authorization to charge your student account. For students with Meal Swipes left, this will count as ONE meal. For students using Flex or Carolina Convenience, your account will be charged the current door rate, plus tax:

Breakfast: $8.75 + tax
Lunch: $12.50 + tax
Dinner: $13.00+ tax
Late Night: $10.00 + tax 

Note: For fevers, stomach issues, or flu-like symptoms, a bland diet is recommended. No matter how much you want Mountain Dew Code Red and tater tots, you should avoid caffeinated drinks and fried foods – the best foods to help settle your stomach and help you get better are soft, low-fat foods with very little seasoning. Don’t worry, we’ll still have all the good-tasting stuff for you when you get better . . .

2. Rams Market Get-Well Pack!

If you’re really not feeling up to eating cooked food, Rams Market has a Get-Well Pack, which is a pre-packed 3-day supply of food items and beverages from the Market.

Each kit contains:
3 bottles of 20oz waters
2 bottles of additional beverages – $1.99 or less (juice, tea and Gatorade)
3 microwavable cans of soup (10.75oz) – tomato soup, vegetable soup and chicken noodle soup
2 hummus cups with pretzels
2 Chobani yogurt cups
2 fresh fruit – apples, oranges
2 microwavable oatmeal bowls
1 box Saltine crackers

To have your Get Well Soon Buddy pick up a Get-Well Pack for you, simply fill out our Get Well Soon form, then forward the confirmation email to your Buddy so they can show it to the cashier as authorization to charge your student account. Your Buddy can pick up the Get-Well Pack for you anytime Rams Market is open. For students with Meal Swipes left, this will count as FOUR meals. For students using Flex or Carolina Convenience, your account will be charged $40.00.
