Take Advantage of Your Meal Plan

It’s typical for upperclassmen to simply not use the meal plan that they’re paying for as part of their tuition. Whether it’s to avoid the busy meal hall or simply because they prefer to eat out, students that don’t use the meal plan that they pay for are wasting potentially thousands of dollars per year. If you have the option to reduce your meal plan or completely eliminate it, consider how much your meal plan would cost per year versus your weekly grocery needs if you choose to go without a meal plan.
