Students dining together is an important part of the college experience by encouraging opportunities for social interactions and learning with others around the meal table.
All residence hall residing, incoming freshmen who are not 19 years old before September 1 of the current academic year are able to select from the following unlimited access Anytime Meal Plans. Many students elect to purchase an all you care to eat meal plan after their first year. Purchase your meal plan online though the Online Bulldog Service Center.
Crimson, Gold, and Platinum anytime meal plans allow students an unlimited number of meals, seven days a week, throughout the semester.
The 14 Traditional meal plan provides 14 meal swipes each week throughout the semester. Use them all in one day or ration them out, for example, using two meals a day seven days a week. Meals are reset each Sunday just after midnight.
For summer students, Ferris also offers a Traditional 10 which offers students 10 meals a week to spend whenever they want.
