So, I am forced to buy a meal plan. It lets me eat at a cafeteria. The food is lower quality than fast food. Guess how much I pay for each meal?
Even if I only eat some salad. What the fuck.
Outside restaurants and other food providers are not allowed on the college campus because of a contract with the cafeteria company.
There's a large building dedicated to the cafeteria.
What I think they should do, instead, is open up the cafeteria space to private bidders who run restaurants. There is room for about 8 fast food size restaurants there already. The competition would drive prices to a decent level, and there would be much more variety. A food court would be superior in every way to the current cafeteria.
