There are 3 comments on New Fall Meal Plans Will Include More Dining Points, Greater Venue Flexibility

  1. The new meal plans are not ideal. All of the cheapest/student-favorite options have been removed and in their place stand fewer, more expensive options that accommodate fewer people, especially those who consistently eat in campus facilities. Please make the previous dining plans available for future semesters as well, so students can choose what suits them the most.

  2. The new meal plan seems to be charging students more. Rather than promoting excess consumption, BU could consider offering a pay-as-you-eat system and refunding any leftover money at the end of the semester. This would not only be more sustainable but also fairer for students who may not have the means to pay for an expensive meal plan.
