From 2008 to 2013, cash payments in Campus Dining facilities fell by 12 percent.
Transitioning to college is difficult, but using Cal Poly’s offered meal plans makes living away from home easier. Not having to cook every meal allows students to focus on balancing their time studying, working and hanging out with friends. But what happens when, halfway through the quarter, you run out of Plu$ Dollars? And how do you make sure you have a varied, nutritious diet every week of the year?
Cal Poly freshmen that live in on-campus residence halls are mandated to purchase a dining plan but many may not realize exactly what is included. There are three different meal plans to choose from that combine meal credits and plus dollars, so students can use their meal plan to buy almost any food available on campus.
