Food will not be provided at the Gopher Science Olympiad Invitational. Also, the food court in Coffman Memorial Union will not be open on competition day. Teams will be free to bring their own food and eat. We just kindly ask that you pick up after yourselves.

In addition, there are many restaurants in a half-mile radius, especially in Dinkytown and in Stadium Village. Examples include:

  • Chipotle
  • Dairy Queen
  • Jimmy John’s
  • Dino’s
  • Noodles & Company
  • Qdoba
  • Erbert and Gerbert’s
  • Subway
  • Potbelly
  • Mesa

If you do plan on going to Stadium Village or Dinkytown, expect for a meal to cost between $5-$10. We also recommend traveling in groups and with an adult chaperone.
