Meal Plan

The times they are a-changin’.

This post seems to be older than 18 years—a long time on the internet. It might be outdated.

For the upcoming semester, I was planning on getting a meal plan because A) I’m on campus so much, and B) I don’t like cooking. I have six choices and I’m trying to figure out which one gives me the biggest bang for my buck:

Meal Plan Weekly
Meal Allowance
Cost Per
Marble Plan 19 meals/week + $50 Munch Money/semester $1,566.00
Quartz Plan 15 meals/week + $100 Munch Money/semester $1,566.00
Granite Plan 150 meals/semester + $175 Munch Money/semester $1,566.00
Topaz Plan 125 meals/semester + $250 Munch Money/semester(available for RHA Mines Park Students only) $1,566.00
Silver Plan 50 meals/semester + $250 Gold card money $530.00
Agate Plan 25 meals/semester $155.00

Note: “Munch Money” and “Gold Card Money” has the same value as regular money. A copy of the Rocky Mountain News is subsidized in the cost (actually two copies of RMN and two copies of The Denver Post, however I don’t read the latter).
