What meal plans are available?

Based on student feedback and the need for increased flexibility, two of the campus’ meal plans will change for the 2013-2-14 school year.

The 19 Meal Plan (with and without additional Meal Plan Dollars) will become the Ultimate Meal Plan. This plan will allow unlimited access (entrances) to the Dining Commons during hours of operation for all resident students required to be on a meal plan. The Five Meal Plan will be replaced by the 120 Meal Block Plan.

This plan will provide the student with 120 meals for use throughout the semester or an average of eight meals per week. These meals can be used at any time and as many per day as needed. Should the student require more meals, additional blocks of 40 meals will be available.

The 12 Meal Plan will remain the same.


Are there many food options?

In the Dining commons there are many stations to choose from. Every day there is a hot meal, vegan selections, grilled items, pizza, salad, soup and cereal. Throughout the week the individual options change.

Dining Services is continues to expand the variety of options available for students with special dietary needs. In addition to indications on station signage when a potential allergen is present, the Dining team is now posting available menu options that are served throughout the Dining Commons. Dining Services has provided an informational session for all concerned students that will highlight the steps being taken to insure their needs are met.

Staff has been trained and will continue to be monitored throughout the semester.


What happens if the student runs out of Dining Dollars on their OWL card?

Individuals who are not on the meal plan but who would like to eat at ANY of our dining locations may use the Dining Dollars option. Dining Dollars deposits can be made in any amount at the Owl Card Office (ID Office); Use your OwlCard to spend your Dining Dollars. Owl Card Office is located in the Zorn Dining Commons Lobby. They are open Monday-Friday from 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.
