So at first my university tried to make it that all freshmen and sophomores have to live on campus, that didn't go over too well.
They just built a Chic fil a and Papa Johns on campus *note there are already both of these establishments not even 10 minutes from campus*
Well I guess to pay that off they are forcing all students wether you live on campus or off campus to buy a 400 dollar meal plan. Students and a few faculty are heated because it's beyond stupid. This school is known as a commuter school so most people who attend don't live on campus i don't know why they just wont keep it that way, the President is pissing a lot of people off by doing this crap.

I heard of mandatory meal plans if you live on campus, but for off campus HELL NO #wheretheydothatat


Yall should stage a protest outside of the administration building, that's how we did it when I was at Howard University whenever the president tried to screw something up

I'm guessing you go to Bama? 
I'm at UAH there's a difference between University of Alabama than University of Alabama Huntsville
most people that go there probably live on campus, complete opposite at UAH

and yeah it makes plenty of sense to require people on campus have meal plans most schools do that, but off campus is crazy

yeah it's like that here too unless you've live a certain distance from the school. but that's not the point, what has everyone so upset is that they're making the people who don't live on campus have to have a meal plan. I think they're doing it even if you're married too

At Syracuse, freshman and sophomores are required to live in on campus housing. You can be excluded if you are in a fraternity and live in the frat house. Additionally, EVERYONE that lives on the main campus is required to have a meal plan. People just get the cheapest one because they are expensive.

Having a mandatory meal plan for people off campus isn't going to fly over well. People live off campus because they are trying to save money.
