Why don't on-campus meal plans for 14 meals per week or 175 and 225 meals per semester cost less than full board (19 meals)?

The answer is in the "missed meal factor." On average, the vast majority of students eat 12 to 14 meals per week. While it is true some students average less than 10 meals per week, even fewer eat all 19. By charging the same rate to all, we can offer a lower across-the-board average cost to everyone. Those who know they will never eat more than 14 meals a week can have Dining Dollars to spend for that occasional early morning snack in Oneota Market, breakfast in the caf, or maybe a purchase in our C-Store or late night snack in Marty's.
