Students can expect to see a new meal plan when they sign their room and board contract for Fall 2018.

An unlimited meal plan will be the fifth meal plan that Eastern offers as a way to provide “more flexibility to students,” said Mark Hudson, the director of Housing and Dining.

The new plan will cost $2,148 per semester, which is $274 more than the 15 meal plan ($1,874).

With this new plan, students will never run out of swipes and will have $150 dining dollars and six bonus meals for guests each semester.

“We’re going to give it a whirl to see how it works, and I’m hopeful it would be something students like,” Hudson said.

Hudson said the plan was created as a result from the feedback received from prospective students and their families.

“We thought we’d give it a try and see how students would like it,” he said.

The four other options will still be available for students to choose from.
