Check Your Meal Plan Progress with the Points Calculator!

Now that we’re nearing the end of drop/add, you’ve probably had enough time to set up an eating routine, whether that’s anywhere from 0-2 Usdan meals a day or always getting takeout from Weswings or ordering all your food bulk and never leaving your house. And with co-op swipe day coming up soon I guess, it’s probably a good time to make sure you’re on track with your meal plan.

Wesleying’s Points Calculator is here to help! Just click on the meal plan you have, enter how many meals and/or points you have left, and it should tell you if you’re using more or less than a projected weekly value. Breaks aren’t counted by the bot, so you’ll have to budget for Fall break. You can check how many meals and points you have left here.

As always, if this points calc isn’t working, email staff[at]wesleying[dot]org to let us know. Happy eating!

spring 2017 points calc

Now that we’re 27 days into the spring semester, you’ve probably had enough time to set up an eating routine, whether that’s anywhere from 0-2 Usdan meals a day or always getting takeout from Weswings or ordering all your food bulk and never leaving your house. And with co-op swipe day coming up this Wednesday, it’s probably a good time to make sure you’re on track with your meal plan.

Wesleying’s Points Calculator is here to help! Just click on the meal plan you have, enter how many meals and/or points you have left, and it should tell you if you’re using more or less than a projected weekly value. (Spring break isn’t being counted, so if you’re going to be here, plan on leaving some extra points for those two weeks.) You can check how many meals and points you have left here.

Use Your Points Wisely While You Still Can

It’s the beginning of the semester and you have a whole meal plan ahead of you! It might seem like a lot of points and/or meals are in your possession, but five WesWings specials and a couple WeShop runs could leave you on an unsustainable spending track.

You can use the Wesleying points calculator (which alt kindly just updated) to see how many meals or points to use daily without running out of either too quickly. Just select which meal plan you’re on and enter how many meals and points you have left.

Contact staff[at]wesleying[dot]org if you have any issues with the calc.

Wesleyan Gives Me Sixteen Bucks a Day to Survive

I’m on the all declining balance plan (1629 points for the semester), and when you average that out from the day we moved back on campus (Aug 30th) to the end of the fall semester (December 14th), I get exactly 16.29 points per day to use to feed myself.

But how, you ask, did I figure that out? Well, Wesleying’s fancy Points Calculator, which has been out of commission since Spring 2013, is finally back. After spending two hours relying on Google and web tutorials, I managed to get it up and running again—and should stay that way for semesters to come.

All you need to do is first check your current balance of meals and points, which can be done through Blackboard, and then select the meal plan you’re on. It’ll then have to fields for you to enter: the number of meals you have left, then the number of points you have left. Once you fill those in, it’ll compute the amount of meals or points you have left for the rest of the semester!

Go check it out, and if you have any concerns shoot us an email at staff[at]wesleying.org.

Online Points Calculator

Earlier this week we posted about WesPoints, a personalized points calculator designed by anonymous audacious developers for iPhone users with budgeting needs. If the number of comments is any indication (current count: 16), demand is high. But not everyone one campus has an iPhone (I thought I was the last one), and so the endlessly practical WesFood is here to save the day:

Non-iPhone users may like to know that the online points calculator at this link has been updated for the Spring semester. The main WesFood site has also started running again; currently, it’s still just Weswings and Star & Crescent that are supported, but better integration with those dining options, support for Red & Black, Usdan, and Summerfields, and better mobile functionality for wesfood.com/points are in the works.

FUCK YEAH WESFOODS. In addition to the aforementioned points calculator, you can head over to that destination for daily menu updates, dining hours, and pertinent linkage.
