  • Dining Hall Formula

    If you eat every meal in the Dining Hall:

    15 Weeks/Semester - (75 X $5.25)+(75 X $7.25)+(25 X $7.25)=(103 X $9.50) = $2097.25

    • Breakfst - 75/ Semester
    • Lunch  -   75/ Semester
    • Brunch -   25/Semester
    • Dinner -  103/Semester
    • Total Meals = 278/Semester
  • Retail Locations Estimates

    Dollar for dollar spending -

    Balance for Use at Retail Locations = Declining Balance Level - Estimated Cost of Meals = $______/ 15 Weeks = Estimate/Week at Retail Locations

    • $2,100 divide by 15 weeks = 140
      • Divide 140 by 7 days a week = 20
        • Divide 20 by 3 meals a day = $6.66 for each meal

     

    • $1,950 = $6.19 each meal
    • $1,700 = $5.39 each meal
    • $1,450 = $4.60 each meal
    • $1,000 = $3.17 each meal
