Asthe semester gets underway, students have tuition and cost of attendance taking its toll on their wallets.

     Amenities, such as gaming rooms, a lounge area and a food court, are offered around campus. For students who may not have a constant flow of cash coming in to purchase food, there is something missing from this equation.

     We are left with the glaring question of why Cal State Dominguez Hills doesn’t offer meal plans. Many of the universities under the California State University umbrella offer them.

     In my opinion, the meal plan option for students is a great idea because it would be convenient. Students already have issues to worry about, and finding out where they’ll be eating shouldn’t be one them.

     This issue can be resolved by creating the option to purchase access into the dining area buffet. Having an unlimited meal plan at some universities costs about $3,100 per semester.

     I would agree that factoring that price into the large amount of money students pay for tuition would be undesirable. I’m not asking for a complete overhaul of campus dining, but offering housing for potential out-of-state-residents with no offer of a flexible meal plan is unheard of.

     Meal plans are an option students may decline, if they would rather purchase groceries and cook for themselves. What about students who are unable to work and can’t get transportation?

     The dining hall is closed on weekends because there are not many classes offered on Fridays or Saturdays, but the option of a buffet on campus benefits students to never go hungry while attending CSUDH.
