I would be happy to work on this as well. The students should be encouraged to be give their input directly as well.

My son is a freshman and the only complaint I hear about is the food as well. We changed him from the second to the highest to the highest plan because he was using alot of points to get enough to eat and at the rate he was going he was going to run out by the end of the semester. He has lost about 10 pounds which he can ill afford. It seems the way the meals are organized is that lunch and breakfast are all points and the dinner is all you can eat. My son, who isn't incredibly picky, says that the dinners are awful. He likes the other two meals but that he needs to use alot of points to get enough food and he sometimes doesn't even eat the dinner because he says they are really bad. I would love to opt out of the dinner and let him fend for himself with that $7.50 but, as you all know, it is mandatory to pay for the dinners even if you don't eat them. Given how expensive the food plan is, and how unsatisfactory it is, I think that we should address it with the administration to see if they can come up with a plan that feeds the kids well. Janet

He is on the middle meal plan. He doesn't feel like he has enough points to get the amounts he needs but also says he probably wouldn't be happy eating any more than he does there. So, I too, as some other parents have done, have supplied him with large quantities of food for him to keep in his dorm room. Given the description of what the plan is to cover, this seems like it shouldn't be necessary!! I'm not happy with this situation and I don't know what to do about it.I like all of the suggestions of Al Hannenberg!! I hope someone that can take them to heart or someone that can make a difference will read the suggestions. Kristin Berg
