Meal Plan Advice to Frosh

College Cafeteria

The Meal Plan selection deadline of August 1st is fast approaching. The Wesleyan Student Assembly (WSA) wants to make sure you, as an incoming student, have as much information as possible so you can make an informed decision. We hope this letter will help you choose the Meal Plan best suited to your lifestyle.

Wesleyan offers four Meal Plan options for freshmen: Block 135 (the default plan), Block 165, Block 210, and Block 285. The overwhelming majority of freshmen choose Block 135: last spring, after frosh had a semester to figure out their dining habits, 83.4% of frosh selected the Block 135 plan.

The reason Block 135 is so popular is that it provides the most “points” of any Meal Plan. “Points,” unlike “Meals”, can be used at any dining location on campus including Pi Café, Weshop, WesWings , Usdan Café, and Red and Black Cafe. In comparison, “Meals” can only be used at the two traditional dining hall locations (Usdan Marketplace and Summerfields). All grab-and-go sandwiches, a la carte items, coffee, sushi, breakfast pastries, snacks, and groceries, plus all other items not sold at Usdan Marketplace or Summerfields, can only be purchased with “Points.” Also, while “points” roll-over from fall to spring semester—although not from year to year—leftover “meals” are wiped out at the end of every semester. For the greater flexibility afforded by more “points”, most students favor the Block 135 plan.
