Today’s higher education students value flexibility and the ability to make individualized choices more than ever. While a traditional meal plan and room-and-board style experience appeal to some students, others balk at the cost. Instead, they forge a different path – moving off campus, choosing a different type of residential education or discontinuing their studies altogether.
With a predicted enrollment cliff rapidly approaching, finding new ways to attract and engage students is paramount for higher education institutions. Offering dining options beyond the traditional meal plans plays an important role in recruitment and retention efforts. An approach like Commuter Declining Balance gives students the personalization and flexibility they need.
