First-Year Students

Making the transition to independence can be a challenging journey. To help ease this transition, BGSU Dining has introduced a First-Year Custom Dining plan, which includes a combination of meal swipes and Falcon Dollars, offering great flexibility and value.

Providing Opportunities

Health and Flexibility

Budgeting Meals

Depending on the plan choice, students will likely average five to ten opportunities each week to dine with classmates and to interact with new friends.

Students will have guaranteed exposure to well-balanced, healthy meals at the all-you-care-to-eat facilities, along with the flexibility to eat at all retail locations across campus.

Students can plan five to ten meals at the all-you-care-to-eat facilities each week, dependent upon the level chosen. Falcon Dollars are also included in each plan that can be used for additional meals or snacking.

For assistance in choosing the right level plan, take the Meal Plan Assistant Survey or call our office at (419)372-7933.

Returning Students

Traditional/AYCE Plans

A "meal" constitutes one visit to a traditional dining facility and one swipe with your student ID. You may stay as long as you like, and eat whatever you like during your visit. Meals may be used at any point during the week.

Traditional/AYCE meals will be offered at The Oaks Dining and the Carillon Place Dining Centers. Selections in these facilities are always changing, offering new choices every day, so your dining experience never gets old. This dining plan helps you build friendships on campus and is more environmentally friendly with full china service and trayless dining. This plan does not include carryout, however students on the Traditional/AYCE Plan have the ability to choose a meal equivalency option in select convenience stores. For those with retail plans, Traditional/AYCE meals may be purchased with Falcon Dollars but will be at a slightly higher price point.

Equivalency meals are also available for students with this plan. These meals consist of select Outtakes items found at Outtakes @ Kreischer and Outtakes @ Carillon Place and may be purchased using a swipe*.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Retail Plans

All Retail Plans consist of Falcon Dollars and are "declining balance" and "a la carte," meaning you pay only for what you take to the register. The price of the items purchased will be deducted from your balance of Falcon Dollars. These dollars may be used in any of the retail locations including convenience stores, locations within the Bowen-Thompson Student Union, residential dining locations, and may also be used to purchase all your care to eat - AYCE Meals. Falcon Dollars will roll over from fall to spring semester, but expire at the end of the academic year.

 

Custom Plans

The Custom Plan offers the maximum value and flexibility with a perfect combination of meals from the Traditional/AYCE Plan and Falcon Dollars from the Retail Plan. By allowing an average of five to ten meals each week in an all you care to eat setting, this plan promotes the opportunity to socialize, meet new people and participate in special events. In addition, the plan offers exposure to well-balanced healthy meals while still allowing funds to be used for additional meals and snacks at some of the most popular locations on campus.

The meals/swipes offered in this plan will expire if not used by the end of that semester. The Falcon Dollars will roll over from fall to spring but must be used by the end of the academic year. 

Equivalency meals are also available for students with this plan. These meals consist of select Outtakes items found at Outtakes @ Kreischer and Outtakes @ Carillon Place and may be purchased using a swipe*.
