Let's talk about dining!
Virtual Tours by Students
The following is an computer-generated summary of the video transcript.
So I'm going to explain how dining works at Stony Brook. So for all first year students, you are now required to get a unlimited meal plan. What that means is that you could have unlimited swipes to either East Side dining or Westside dining, which are both like a buff, a kind of style, and it changes daily. What is offered you also may have the option of getting dining dollars with it. So maybe fifty dining dollars, two hundred fifty nine eight dollars or five hundred dining dollars. The's Diamond Dog dining dollars Khun B used a different places, like the Student Activity Center. It could be used at Jasmine, which is my personal favorite Asian cuisine, and it can also be used at Roth Cafe. Um, I would say that the unlimited meal plan is good for some people. It's good for the people who, like want to go in, and they want to eat all that they can on DH. They don't want to worry about that declining balance. After your first year, you are able to change your meal, plan to onley dining dollars or some block meals plus dining dollars, which is currently what I have. I currently have eighty block meals, and then I also have about seven hundred seventy five don di name dollars, which is the r A plan that was given to me since I'm a resident assistant. I would say that the dining dollars definitely give you more options and allow you to get more things. If you decide to live in Roth Quad, which is science and society, or Table Quad, which is arts, culture and humanities, you will get one swipe a day at Roth Quad, as in a meal exchange program. I think that's really awesome, because Ross has different options that maybe maybe other dining halls I don't have. Let's say, subway smashing Jake, which is kind of like a fake shake shack. They have Italian, so you're definitely getting more options. A few decide to live in Roth and Table er, Roth or table ER on. I also forgot to mention that there are two other things. So you actually Khun, see what West and East Side have to offer before actually going there. So we have an app called Nutritious Lies which shows you ahead of time, what they're gonna have that day. So instead of like waking up and being like, Oh, I wonder what Western East has today and then walking all the way over there you could just check on your phone ahead of time and see if that's something that you'd like. Another thing about the unlimited meal plan is that you can have take out what takeout means is basically, you go up to them and you ask them, Hey, can I have taken up? And they swipe your ID and they give you a box, and then they also give you a cup. Basically what you Khun Dio is you can take out your food so you can put whatever food you can in the box and then whatever beverage that you want in the cup, and then you can take it out to class or wherever you want to eat it. So those air to other things that I forgot to mention before about unlimited meal plans.
