Dining Plan Changes!!

  • ASU, in partnership with Chartwell’s, is proud to announce that students who are on the Gold Plans will now get 2 meal exchanges per day, Monday-Friday at all locations across campus!  Meal plan periods will still apply, so students can only use one exchange per meal period, but the total has been increased from 1 per day to 2 per day.

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 - 2015 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 exchanges 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.  Except for meal exchanges, these meals will be provided in the Food Service Center.

    • The Quest 200: This plan gives you the flexibility to use 200 meals per semester whenever is convenient for you.  Except for meal exchanges, these meals will be provided in the Food Service Center.

    To add greater flexibility to the Gold Meal Plans, two meals can be used as meal plan exchanges Monday-Friday at Crossroads Cafe, Roscoe’s Den, Roscoe’s Bistro, R&B’s Espresso and Common Grounds instead of the Food Service Center, from 7 am - 8 pm.

    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 w/ $20 Ram Points.

    Bella 70 = $480.00 per semester w/ $20 Ram Points.

    Roscoe 100 = $650.00 per semester w/ $40 Ram Points.

  • 2015-2016 Meal Plans

  • Meal Exchange

    To add greater flexibility to the Gold Meal plans, two meals per day can be used as “meal exchanges” Monday-Friday at Crossroads Cafe, Roscoe’s Den, Roscoe’s Bistro, R&B’s Espresso and Common Grounds instead of the Food Service Center, from 7 am - 8 pm.  Meal periods will only allow one meal exchange per meal period.

  • RamPoints

    Each Meal Plan includes RamPoints.

    RamPoints are a feature included in the cost of the Meal Plans that allows you to make direct food purchases at the Food Service Center, the UC, Roscoe’s Den, R&B Espresso and Common Grounds. To make a purchase using your RamPoints, simply present your ASU OneCard to the attendant and say you would like to use your RamPoints. The attendant will swipe your card and the amount of the purchase will be deducted from your account.  All Gold Plans come with $100 in Rampoints each semester.

    RamPoints vs. Ram Bucks
    RamPoints Ram Bucks

    Are part of the meal plans. Only people who purchase a meal plan have RamPoints.

    All currently enrolled students have an active Ram Bucks account. To use the account, they need to add value (make a deposit). They can add value in the OneCard Office in the Administration Building using cash, check, money order, MC or VISA. They can also add value using cash at the CSVT machines.

    Food purchases only at:

    • Food Service Center (cafeteria)
    • Roscoe’s Den (at Super Slab)
    • Crossroads Cafe (UC)
    • Roscoe’s Bistro (UC)
    • R&B Espresso (UC Starbucks)
    • Common Grounds (Library Starbucks)

    For these types of purchases:

    • Food at all campus locations
    • Beverages in selected vending machines
    • Printing in the MCS computer lab after the print allotment is exceeded
    • Photocopies
    • Items at the ASU Bookstore
    • Fines in the Porter Henderson Library
    • Medication, etc., at the University Health Clinic

    Unused RamPoints do not roll over to the next semester.

    Unused Ram Bucks carry forward from semester to semester as long as the student is enrolled.

    RamPoints that have not been used when a student leaves the university are not refunded.

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

    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.
