The block plans are based on meals per semester instead of meals per week. Your meal plan blocks can be used at the Commons whenever it is open or at the CX between 6:30 p.m. – 8 p.m. if you spend a minimum of $4.35. You can swipe your card for family and friends, too. Your unused Meal Plan Blocks do not roll over from the fall semester to the spring semester.
Panther Bucks and Debit Dollars
Panther Bucks are monies that can be used for purchases in the CX and the Commons. Your unused Panther Bucks roll over from the fall semester to the spring semester only. Panther Bucks may also be used to pay the walk-up price of meals at the Commons.
Debit Dollars are monies that may be purchased in addition to the meal plan. Debit Dollars may be used in Carbon Copy, the CX, and the Commons. Unused Debit Dollars roll from the fall semester to the spring semester and may be refunded at the end of the academic year. All Debit Dollars purchased are tax exempt. Debit Dollars can be added to a student’s ID card online or at Student Financial Services in Burnham Hall.
Students may also pay with cash/credit at the CX and the Commons.
The CX (Campus eXchange) is located in Springfield Hall and is a perfect place for students to meet to work on projects, study, or just to relax. The CX offers menu items ranging from grill items that are cooked to order, to the “Grab n’ Go” menu items which include pre-packaged entrée salads and sandwiches. Students can also enjoy a variety of Starbucks freshly brewed beverages.
The Commons Dining Hall features a robust menu of home-style foods, daily grill items, vegetarian entrées, as well as an extensive salad & salad bar and a dessert station. The Commons also features seasonal special events and provides “to go” containers. Arrangements can be made for individual consultations concerning any dietary need, such as vegan, weight control, food allergies or medically prescribed diets.
