Eating Right

Waste little time on grocery shopping and dishes! Your student can eat right and save time as first year residents are automatically enrolled in a Commuter Residence Dining Plan, with no option to “opt out”. This is a room and board program.  We believe the room and board program is an important part of the success of your students first year in university.
