Do students have a choice between meal plans when living on Messiah College campus?
Messiah College
Hi Kimberly! There are four different plans our students have access to (1 Dining Dollars Meal Plan and 3 Ala Carte Meal Plans). However, the Dining Dollars Meal Plan is required for all students living in traditional housing (dorm rooms). If you live in an on-campus apartment, you can choose which meal plan you want (if any).
