I had the meal plan that had mostly dining dollars, but also included a few meal swipes a day where you could get however much food you wanted as one meal.

my advice for eating in the dorm is to have easy snacks that are quick and easy to make in a rush and can fit into a busy schedule of going to classes and other activities

I recommend to take advantage of all of the dinning halls and try them all out to see which one works best for you

My advice is to have a good group of friends who will be there too look out for you and make sure u you aren’t exposed to anything you are allergic too
