The dining services sought to minimize loss and maximize service. Rather than four meal plans to choose from, the students had six that could have been used at more locations and more times daily. Before, residents were only entitled to breakfast, lunch and dinner, and if a student claimed dinner he or she couldn't get a late-night snack. Now, residents could have dinner and a nighttime snack. They had the opportunity to use their board cards at their discretion. "The Residents found being able to eat at new locations on campus with board cards a big convenience. Photo by Tricia Garcia. new plans are very popular with the residents," said Bill Wentz, General Manager of ARA Campus Dining. "It offers maximum service for the amount of money the students pay. But still if they don't use them, they lose them." Erica Chapman, Cougar Place resident said, "The new plans are good because they give you more opportunities to use your board cards, and now you can have a guest also eat on your plan." The plans were designed to ensure that the students used all their meals available. At the end of the Spring semester, they had the opportunity to take home holiday baskets, hams and turkeys that could have been purchased with their board cards at any resident hall. "If meals were left on the cards, the university kept the money," said Wentz. "Food services did not receive any money. They were only paid if they j)rovided products and services." "I like the new plans because they are more flexible and you have more choices about the places you can eat. You get more use out of them", said Irene Gonzales, South Tower resident. The new plans were still unfair to some residents because not everyone ate all their meals in the dining areas, said Wentz. The students should be able to carry their left-over meals to the next semester, he said. The Cougar Express Cards were such plans, but they were the most unpopular. Students could not transfer meals due to residential dining restrictions. -Joyetta D. Johnson Residents could order more meals at more places with the new meal plans. Photo by Tricia Garcia.
