Highlights of the Dining Reports

¶ For students living in dorms with dining halls, the administration’s Blue Ribbon Committee would require either a $600 declining-balance plan or payment of a $500 opt-out penalty. The UA’s Dining Proposal Committee proposes a mandatory $300 declining-balance plan for those students.

¶ The UA’s DPC proposes closing McCormick dining in the short term, and closing Baker and Simmons dining in the long term, along with creation of a new centrally-located dining hall. The administration’s BRC report does not recommend closing any dining halls.

¶ Both reports stress the need for more breakfast options, and both support a grab-and-go system to provide fast and accessible breakfast in the mornings.
