Great news for students who are low on points or have already run out of points this semester. After a semester of meetings with administrators, WSA representative Zachary Malter ’13, WSA Finance and Facilitites Chair Ben Firke ’12, and WSA President Mike Pernick ’10 have “negotiated an agreement for a significant increase in points for next year’s meal plan,” according to an e-mail from the WSA.
To be specific, students on the “105-meal plan,” the lowest possible meals for sophomores, will have an additional 60 points for the year without losing any meals. Students on the “all points plan” will have an additional 130 points for the year. The number of points will increase proportionally for the other plans as well.
This is a great first step in making the meal plan more flexible and reflective of students’ dining habits. Next year’s student body has something to look forward to–more trips to Pi, Weshop, Weswings, Red and Black, or other campus eateries covered by the meal plan.
