2017-18 Meal Plans

AU Food Services Meal Plans

Making the transition to college can be a challenging journey. To help ease this transition, AU Food Services offers four meal plans so you can take the worry out of dining on campus. To learn more about AU Food Services, visit us at dineoncampus.com/anderson.

Our meal plans offer a combination of meals for use in the all-you-care-to-eat Marketplace dining hall, the option to use a meal exchange in our other campus retail dining locations, and Raven Dollars. Throughout the semester, students can add Raven Dollars to their account and special offers are also available with bonus Raven Dollars throughout the year. Stay connected to learn about special offers and promotions by following us on Facebook or Twitter or by visiting our website.

Which plan do you recommend for First Year Residents?

With the Raven Unlimited option, students in traditional housing on campus have unlimited meals for the entire semester. No need to worry about running out of meals and snacks for the year. This option fits Anderson University incoming freshmen well as they adjust to college life along with all student athletes. First year residents may also consider the Raven Basic Plus plan, which includes 15 meals per week for use in the Marketplace for up to 4 times per day, guaranteeing meals throughout the semester.

For added flexibility, all plans come with one meal exchange combo per day to use in campus retail dining locations (not including Mocha Joe's) and Raven Dollars. And, our plans also include guest meals so you can invite a friend or parent to the Marketplace to eat with you.

For assistance in choosing the plan that best meets your needs, call (765) 641-4555, stop by the AU Food Services office in the Student Center, or email aufoodservices@anderson.edu.

Why were changes made for 2017-18?

The introduction of anytime dining with the Raven Unlimited plan allows for ultimate flexibility allowing students to dine as often as they’d like without worrying about running out of meals. The Marketplace will now be open for longer and continuous hours throughout the day making it easier than ever to come in and grab a bite to eat, study and hang out with friends. Also, both the Raven Basic Plus and Raven Basic plans are now designed to guarantee meals throughout the semester. These new plans make it easier to eat well-balanced meals and creates more opportunity to gather with friends over a meal without using Raven Dollars or worry about running out of meals. Ultimately, they provide more meals, more convenience, and more value.

We are also pleased to announce that Mocha Joe’s will accept Raven Dollars starting in the fall 2017, in addition to cash or debit and credit cards.

What's the difference between weekly meals and semester meals?

Raven Basic and Raven Basic Plus are weekly plans where unused meals will expire at the end of each week. These meal plans include a set number of meals per week rather than per semester. The meals unused at the end of week will just not be used and the following week you will have a full set of meals again. Paired with 4 swipes per day, this is a way to help you budget your meals through the entire semester.

What is a meal exchange combo?

All meal plans include one meal exchange combo per day to use in the dining retail locations (outside of the Marketplace). You'll be given options at the retail locations for how you can use your combo meals. Meal exchange combos will not be available at Mocha Joe's.

What are Raven Dollars?

Raven Dollars work like a debit card and are included in all meal plans. They offer increased flexibility, are accepted at all on campus dining locations and roll from fall to spring semester. You can add Raven Dollars at any time to any plan and in any amount with a minimum purchase of $50. Watch for special bonus Raven Dollar offers throughout the semester on our website and social media.

What are guest meals?

All meal plans now have guest meals for the Marketplace. These meals can be used any time during the semester to invite friends or family to eat with you, so you don't have to worry about using your meal plan for a guest. 

How do I select my meal plan?

You will select your preferred meal plan option during the housing application process.
