Meal plans at Drexel can go either way. It really takes being flexible to make it work. For example, the meal plan can be a great deal if a student eats a lot, in which case, all-you-care-to-eat Handschumacher Dining Hall will be an excellent choice. On the contrary, if a vegetarian student doesn't enjoy the vegetarian option and only eats a bagel, this could be an expensive mistake. Seasons offers different sandwiches, salads, and quiches based on the seasons. Students are also a big fan of Northside Dining Terrace, where they can get Subway, Currito, Chick-fil-A, and various convenient-mart foods on the first floor of Kelly Hall. Students can also use their Dragon Dollars here—a major perk.
Students sometimes alternate their lunch choices, but they tend to stick with the lunch trucks for their speed and low prices. Cheap and convenient food is essential because you are hungry at times of the day other than breakfast, lunch, or dinner, so you need options to fulfill that craving to have a pizza or french fries at 3 a.m. Since there aren't cafeterias that stay open 24 hours, restaurants such as California Pizza that are close to campus and open late, come in handy. Lots of choices that require less money always make dining better for everyone.
