Which meal plan is best for you really is dependent on what you do on campus.
We do recommend that when you first arrive on campus, that you choose the 21 meal plan at least the first semester to gauge how you live and are active on campus.
This is especially true for freshmen in the regiment during the fall semester, as they are required to be on campus until the end of MUG month.
Do you participate in a sports team and may or may not be on campus every weekend?
Are you here during the weekends, do you eat breakfast every day?
Is there a possibility of having watch and being here every day of the week?
Do you eat breakfast, or prefer a small snack that you can grab at the Waypoint?
These are questions you should ask yourself while determining a meal plan. We can help you on a person by person basis if you aren't sure, just come into the dining services office and ask or drop us a line at diningservices.
Tray-free dining is a trend that Sodexo leads in many colleges and universities around the country in an effort to be more sustainable and to continue to be more environmentally friendly. It is an important facet in Sodexo's Better Tomorrow Plan.
Going tray-free not only helps us save water by not having to clean the hundreds of trays that are used on a typical day, but also saves on refuse by decreasing wasted food. When dining at an all-you-care-to eat dining location, it can be easy to take more than we will actually consume. This problem is exacerbated when we have a large tray to "fill up." With tray-less dining, we reduce the amount of food that is taken yet never eaten. The Better Tomorrow Plan focuses on the health of our guests as well. Dining with a tray encourages overeating and exceeding daily recommended caloric intake.
We will provide trays for students who require extra assistance provided by a tray.
