Uconn's New Meal Plan - A Disaster sign now

Our Meal Plans are being changed for the worse. The University of Connecticut is putting it self, as a business, in front of the student body yet again. Many students arent saying anything about this because you dont have any idea that it is going on. Too often are changes made under our noses, and we find out about them after it is too late to do anything about it.

Right Now we have 5 different options for meals. The least expensive plan is $1,533 and the most expensive plan is 1,766.

Next year there will be 2 options, Gold and Silver. The Silver plan will cost over $1,600 and the Gold plan will cost over $1,800. So already this has removed 3 options and increased the prices.

Right now the most amount of meals a person can get is 300, with 100 points. Anyone who has gone to Uconn knows that they will never use all 300 meals. But when you miss breakfast one morning, its nice to know that now you can get 11 waters at Webbsite, or something else.

Next year: GOLD PLAN - Unlimited meals, 10 guest passes, 250 points.
Unlimited sounds too good to be true and it is. This means that when you miss breakfast, you are just losing money that you cannot ever make up for. Forget about just swiping a friend in. The limit of 10 guest passes will not even last for a whole weekend if you bring two guests to visit. Our meals belong to us, the student body, we pay for them and we deserve to dispense them as we like. The reason the gold plan includes so many points is because no longer will you be able to use meals to pay for grab and go. Uconn students have very busy schedules and often times dont have any time to sit down and eat in the dinning hall. Since we will not be able to use meals in the future to get food, our 250 points will quickly run out.

SILVER PLAN - Unlimited meals, 10 guest passes, no points.
If you cant afford the most expensive plan, then you will not be able to get ANY points. If $1800 is too much for you to spend on a meal plan, than your option of going to a grab and go are gone.

The school is already making money on the students by the tens of thousands of meals that we pay for and never eat each semester. As students living on campus, we do not have any choice in whether or not to purchase these plans. They can change them, because we have no other choice. If you want to live on campus, other than in an apartment, you MUST by a meal plan.
