Points, points, points

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.

    the last 3 years we were charged more and we never got any extra points. the wsa got involved and now we’re at least getting something.

    cool, so we’re just getting charged more, making us effectively add points before the semester starts.

    Poster 4: To my understanding, food quality will not inherently decrease from its present state because next year the RCF (residential comprehensive fee), which pays for our dining, will increase giving the administration the same amount to devote to maintaining the same quality of food. Also, the money spent on food doesn’t necessarily correlate with the quality.

    While that would be nice, major fiscal changes probably can’t feasibly happen midway through the year.

    It’s great news for people low on points because presumably they won’t have as much of an issue next year.

    why is this great for students low on points this semester? will points be added for this semester’s meal plans? if bon apetite recognizes the inconsistency between inflation of prices and the current allotment of points, why not apply the changes immediately?
