Meals on the Run
We understand how hectic a college student's life can be, with athletics, clubs, and jobs in addition to classes. To help accommodate busy schedules, specialty bag lunches and dinners are available in the Dining Commons when schedules conflict. Students participating in the 5-college meal exchange may also benefit from this perk while taking classes at the four other schools. Contact the Dining Services at extension 5750.
In order to meet your campus dining needs, we have designed the following meal plans for the 2011-2012 academic year.

Five College Meal Exchange Policy
In support of Five College academic opportunities, a dining meal exchange is available for students enrolled in a meal plan at any one of the five colleges. A request for participating in the meal exchange will be granted for academic reasons only. Other meal exchange requests, for which there is a compelling reason, will be reviewed on an individual basis.
To request permission to participate in the meal exchange, a student must follow the guidelines provided by the Dining Services office on the home campus where the student has enrolled in a meal plan. With the application, the student must provide documentation of enrollment in a course at the other campus where the student is seeking permission to eat under the meal exchange program. To utilize the meal exchange or obtain further information, contact the Dining Services office on your home campus.
