Meal Plans at Angelo State

Meal Plans

Between classes and activities, you will have enough to keep you busy without adding cooking meals to the list. A campus meal plan makes it easy. With expanded service hours and a variety of food options available, the hard part is choosing what you want to eat.

Your dining service is managed by Chartwells, a division of Compass Group North American Inc., a nationwide food service firm that works with college administrations and students to provide a variety of nutritious menu options combined with personalized service for a pleasant dining experience.

For more information please visit the Chartwells ASU Dining Services website. If you live in a residence hall and have completed fewer than 60 semester credit hours, purchasing a meal plan is required. Meal plans are optional for students assigned to Vanderventer Apartments and for all summer housing residents.

  • 2014 Meal Plans

    ASU Meal Plans offer value for your dollar. Students have unlimited buffet-style access to a wide variety of food choices. On a price-per-meal basis, you won’t find a comparable nutritional alternative.

    The Gold Plans

    One of these three meal plans is required during the academic year for all residential students who have less than 60 earned semester credit hours, unless they live in the Vanderventer Apartments.

    • Ram Unlimited: The Ram Unlimited Meal Plan is an “Open Access Meal Plan” and works exactly as it sounds, open access to the resident dining cafeteria.  The meal plan holder may enter the Food Service Center as many times as they wish during open schedule hours.  In addition the meal plan holder may use one swipe per day Monday through Friday for a meal exchange in the Houston Harte University Student Center.  There will be no meal trades on Saturday or Sunday.  The meal plans are not transferable and “to go” meals are not included within this meal plan.  As with all meal plans, no food is allowed to be removed from the cafeteria.
    • Rambelle 220: This plan gives you the flexibility to use 220 meals per semester whenever is convenient for you.

    • The Quest 200: This plan gives you the flexibility to use 200 meals per semester whenever is convenient for you.

    The Blue Plans

    These meal plans are available to non-residential students, residential students with 60 or more earned semester credit hours, faculty and staff members.  These meal plans are sold on a semester by semester basis.

    • Dominic 40: This plan gives you the flexibility to use 40 meals within a semester, whenever is convenient for you.
    • Bella 70: This plan gives you the flexibility to use 70 meals within a semester, whenever is convenient for you.

    • Roscoe 100: This plan gives you the flexibility to use 100 meals within a semester, whenever is convenient for you.

    Here is the math:

    Gold Plans

    Ram Unlimited w/ $100 Ram Points = $1,625.00 per semester/$3,250.00 for academic year

    Rambelle 220 w/ $100 Ram Points = $1,525.00 per semester/$3,050.00 for academic year

    The Quest 200 w/ $100 Ram Points = $1,450.00 per semester/$2,900.00 for academic year

    Blue Plans

    Dominic 40 = $280.00 per semester

    Bella 70 = $480.00 per semester

    Roscoe 100 = $650.00 per semester

  • Current Meal Plans

    ASU Meal Plans offer value for your dollar. Students have unlimited buffet-style access to a wide variety of food choices. On a price-per-meal basis, you won’t find a comparable nutritional alternative.

    The Plans

    • Meal Plan A: Seven day/21 meals a week: Entitles you to three meals a day, seven days a week.
    • Meal Plan B: Seven day/15 meals a week: Entitles you to choose any 15 meals Monday through Sunday.

    • Meal Plan C: Five day/15 meals a week: Entitles you to three meals a day Monday through Friday.
    • Meal Plan S (Summer Only): Seven day/19 meals a week plus: Entitles you to three meals a day Monday through Friday plus two meals per day on Saturday and Sunday.

    Here is the math:

    • Meal Plan A totals about $2,800 a year provides 21 meals a week for roughly 32 weeks. At that rate, food comes out to only $4.17 per all-you-can-eat meal!
    • Meal Plan B totals about $2,750 a year provides 15 meals a week for roughly 32 weeks. At that rate, food comes out to only $5.73 per all-you-can-eat meal!
    • Meal Plan C totals about $2,700 a year provides 15 meals a week for roughly 32 weeks. At that rate, food comes out to only $5.63 per all-you-can-eat meal!
    • Meal Plan S is $560 per summer term. 

    The meal specifications at ASU are designed with balanced nutrition in mind, but it is the students’ responsibility to choose items that create a healthy diet according to their individual needs.

    Unused RamPoints do not roll over to the next semester.

    Balances of $25 or more are refunded when the student is no longer enrolled at ASU. Balances of less than $25 will be forfeited.
