Most underclassmen subsist on meal plans offered through the school. Residential students who have no kitchen facilities have no choice, and even commuter students may find their class schedules are conducive to regularly eating on campus. Fortunately, schools have started offering healthier choices than they did in previous decades. In 2014, more than 200 universities observed Meatless Mondays in their dining halls. Today, most colleges and universities recognize that their students have diverse dietary needs and offer a range of traditional, vegetarian, and vegan offerings.
On-Campus cafeterias are also key for hiring students.
