Commuter Trouble!!!
 
I'm a commuter and live an hour and a half away. So in the morning, I have to scramble to make some sort of snack to go which is usually cold by lunchtime. I was wondering, despite the fact that I'm a commuter, could I buy food with my student ID (it has money on the account), even though I don't have a meal plan? I don't have cash all the time but I can get stuff from vending machines with my card; can I do that with REAL food? Like at Java? The Commons? University Center???

Short answer, Yes. I am a commuter as well. I have the 50 meal commuter meal plan plus points on my Drew Card. As far as I am aware, every place on campus takes Drew Bucks, and so do quite a few places in the town. I buy stuff with my points all the time around campus. If you want to bring your own food though, I am pretty sure the commuter lounge or snack bar have microwave's or something.

Commuter lounge
 
The commuter lounge does have a microwave.

Sweet! I'm tired of eating squished cold sandwiches and a little variety would be great...although...I've heard some bad stuff about the food sold here...still, thanks for your help!

Just make sure that if you are trying to use your card to buy food at the Commons or at the Snack Bar that the money is in your supplemental food account and not on your bookstore account. Only food account money can be used in the Snack Bar and Commons.
