New Dining Options, Improvements Coming Next Fall

 Beginning next fall, three new meal plans will be available:

  • Gold Plan:19 meals per week and $100 flex points per semester (required for first-year students living in the traditional halls but available to anyone).
  • Prairie Wolf Plan:140 meals and $100 in flex points per semester (available to all returning students living in the traditional halls, townhouses, suites and apartments).
  • Pack Plan: 75 meals and $250 flex points per semester (available to commuter students and those living in the townhouses, apartments and Greek houses).

 Other dining improvements your sons and daughters will notice next fall include:

  • Dining hall renovation including contemporary seating, tables, welcome center and serving stations;
  • Variety of high quality, healthy dining options that also address special dietary needs;
  • Convenient, high-quality, fresh Simply To Go option, providing grab-and-go style meals for busy students;
  • Partnerships with Lincoln restaurants to offer a meal from restaurant’s menu;
  • Holiday, heritage months and celebrations to build community and create a fun dining experience;
  • “We Proudly Brew” Starbucks beverages served in the coffee house;
  • Social media internship position to assist Sodexo, our food service provider, with student engagement;
  • Two student contests to name the coffee house and dining hall.

We are excited about the improvements, which resulted from student focus groups.

Housing selection begins in April. This is when your student will sign up for their housing and meal plan for the 2014-2015 academic year.  Summer housing contracts will also be available at this time if your student is interested in staying on campus during the summer months.  Please check with your son or daughter to make sure they have completed their necessary housing selection paperwork.  If not, please direct them to the Residential Education Office as soon as possible.
