Some students get ripped off
There are only two meal plan options for freshmen at CU: the 19-meal plan or the 15-meal plan.
Each plan is $2169 per semester. With the 19-meal plan you get 19 meals per week and $150 in Munch Money (to be used at any convenience store on campus), and the 15-meal plan allows for 15 meals per week and $200 in Munch Money.
There are 16 weeks in a semester, which means that the 19-meal option gives you a total of 304 meals. The 15-meal option will gives you 240 meals.
If you subtract the amount of Munch Money from the total price of the plan then divide that by the total amount of meals per semester you can calculate the price of each meal.
