Campus

Ifto^ E^teti Many resident students are unhappy with the dining options on campus. Residents are required to pay $1,855 or more per semester for an unlimited meal plan which can be used at Butterfield or Mainfare at Hope Commons. The meal plans are unlimited, but students are not allowed to take food from the dining halls, and many people feel that they should be allowed to take food since they are paying so much for the meal plan. Partly in response to a facebook group called "URI Students For The Right To Take Food From the Dining Hall!," the Student Senate Campus Affairs committee started to take action to change the meal plans. Students can now get one combo meal per day from the Ram's Den. Senate surveyed students about meal plans, and they are still working on getting dining services to allow students to take food from the dining halls or offer meal plans with a set number of meals per week instead of unlimited meals.
