Having trouble selecting a meal plan?
Try considering your daily routine…Do you eat three meals a day? Will your class
schedule, studying, extracurricular activities and social events interfere with dining? Will you miss dinner due to employment or evening classes? Anticipating the answers to
these and similar questions will help you to select a meal plan that best fits your lifestyle.
