While juggling 15 credit hours, extra curricular activities, and multiple jobs finding time to make or find a healthy meal is nearly impossible. Second only to those cumulative final exams, one of the most difficult challenges college students face is how to battle away hunger?
The caf? Fast food? The pack of ramen they forgot they dropped under their bed last week?
Putting aside the debate over the quality of the dining hall food (see my article “In defense of the cafeteria: Picky eater finds appreciation for the caf”), the place that students choose to eat depends on their busy schedules, their particular taste in food, and more importantly their bank account. With the prices of the meal plan options rising, how are people who cannot afford them or choose not to get them eating.
