Food and friendship

Every residence hall room comes fur-
nished with a bed, a dresser, a desk and
a variety of ocher necessities for living
comforcably. But why is every student
who lives in the University's residence
halls required to get the mean plan?
University Housing Spokesman
Peter Logan said the main reason the
requirement exists is because students
don't have the means to cook in their
"It would not be safe for students to
cook in their rooms," he said. "It would
be an incredible fire hazard. Unless
residence halls have that kind of kitch-
en capability, it's very difficult to allow
students to store and prepare foods
safely."
But Logan said there are also less
practical reasons for requiring students
to have a meal plan.
"We believe very much that dining in
the residence halls is a part of the com-
munity experience - part of the univer-

sity and living experience at Michigan,"
he said.
Logan added that eating in the dining
halls is a good way for students to meet
and get to know one another.
"Socially, the dining halls are part of
the community experience that helps
residential students build friendsbips
and become more engaged in the cam-
pus environment," he said.
Logan said he thinks the quality of
food offered in the dining halls is worth
the price of meal plans. Prices for plans
range from $2,245 per semester for the
unlimited plus plan to $1,685 per semes-
ter for the least expensive plans.
"Nutritionally, our dining halls follow
the highest standards of quality in foods
and preparation," he said. "Our chefs
and dietitians create menus that pro-
vide the nutritional value that students
need, more so than many students will
prepare or purchase themselves."
