Unless you are an athlete that must eat copious amounts of food to maintain weight, muscle, and stamina, the standard meal plan is not advisable.

Most schools will offer a variety of meal plans involving set number of meals and money. Those with a high number of meals (say 15) and low money (say $100) are not advisable for most people. If possible I would recommend a card with only money and no meals. The money can be spent towards meals, but can also be used at other on-campus dining venues.

Meals typically only come from dining halls. Thus, those with high meals per week can only eat at select locations, from food that is often the same every day. If you like variety or are a picky eater this type of meal plan is not for you. It is also a poor use of money for light eaters.
