Meal Plans for Commuters?
 
The issue was recently raised in the SGA as to whether commuters should be allowed access to meal plans for the Commons, a privilege they currently do not have. I am interested in how the entire Drew community feels about this, so respond back with some thoughts and opinions here, or email me. Thank you.

I agree with that. I'm not a commuter, however I feel that a smaller meal-plan should be available at a cheaper rate.

I think the options for meal-plans are good, however I think a smaller meal-plan at a less expensive price would be a good option not only for commuters, but residents as well. A student misses many commons meals because he/she is working off-campus, etc. or students living in townhouses with their own kitchens are losing money on meals that they don't eat.

When I first came to Drew, I was actually somewhat surprised to see that there wasn't a smaller, cheaper meal plan. It is something that most universities offer because many students let meals go by. I think the current option should be mandatory for first-years, however, upperclassmen should have multiple options.

Many people's lifestyles don't circle around the Commons and Snack Bar hours. A second, smaller option for less the price would be good.

Excellent Idea
 
I think giving commuters the option to buy into a meal plan is an excellent idea.

Sometimes commuters are on campus for the entire day for classes, extra-curricular activities, and to spend time with friends. Just because they do not live on campus does not mean they do not eat on campus.

It is important to give commuters the choice. Regardless of how many actually decide to sign up for a meal plan, they deserve the choice as members of the Drew community.
