Meal Plan Changes until Dec. 10th ONLY
The DEADLINE for changing your plan is WEDNESDAY Dec. 10, 2003-this is the absolute last day to make meal plan changes, and NO EXCEPTIONS will be made to this deadline. Please keep in mind that if you live in a residence hall, you are required to have one of the "metal" meal plans (Platinum, Gold, Copper, Silver, or Bronze). Robbins residents may opt for either the Robbins Plan or a Block 50. IMPORTANT: IF YOU LIVE IN ROBBINS and currently have a Block 50 plan, you MUST fill out another meal plan change form to have another Block 50 for the Winter (otherwise you will get the Robbins Plan). For more information contact Jennifer Dwyer, dwyerj@spu.edu.
