Fall 2017 Meal Plan Changes!
By Melissa McMahon
Fall 2017 “a la carte” Meal Plans
Starting Fall 2017, there will no longer be a Mandatory Meal Plan Assessment for students who do not live on campus. Non-Residential students who would like a meal plan will get to choose from an “a la carte” style structure allowing them to create a meal plan that will best fit their dining habits.

Kennesaw State’s new Meal Plan structure was designed using a variety of surveys, student focus groups and Board of Regents recommendations. Additionally, the Meal plan was restructured to address the following:
- To align KSU’s meal plan structure more closely with other USG Universities.
- To assure the quality and variety of KSU Dining are not effected negatively for our students.
- To encourage and promote the University initiative of increasing campus involvement on the Marietta and Kennesaw campuses.
- To offer students who live, eat and work off campus the flexibility to create a Meal Plan that works best for their dining habits.
- Eating on campus promotes integration and engagement.
- Students who are integrated or engaged are more likely to persist, graduate and find post-graduation employment that is relevant to their education.
- Students who eat on campus are more likely to have relationships with faculty and staff that lead to a more meaningful educational experience.
- Students who eat on campus are more likely to participate in student organizations and foster friendships that they later identify as a reason they persisted.
