During the 2009-10 academic year — for the first time ever, and without a surge in overall student count — Blugold Dining exceeded the 1 million meal mark. The total number of meals served in The Terrace (Davies Center) and Riverview Cafe (Hilltop Center) during the academic year was 1.15 million meals. The popularity of the cafeterias is consistent with the meal plan's success in offering UW-Eau Claire students convenience and choice.

The Blugold Dining program is administered by the University Centers, a Student Affairs unit of UW-Eau Claire.
