So I understand the whole Cal 1 card point system for meals except for one aspect. at calso, when we went to Crossroads to eat it looked like the Cal 1 Card "swiper" was before you really got into the cafeteria, so do they just charge a certain number of points, no matter how much (or little) you eat? Or am I completely wrong?
Is the lunch always the same as dinner. if not, when do they close to cook the dinner for that night.
and another question, how do students discipline themselves because it would be tempting to eat A LOT every night because you want to feel like you get your money's worth and also because there's so much food to try. Im just worried about gaining the Freshman 15.
On campus it is a 1:1 for your money. And you wont always eat at the DCs, but if you are worried about managing your points you can go to the cal dining site and log in and they tell you how many points you have and how many you should have at different points in the year. You dont get scrwed out of your money. Its really a good deal.
No; lunch is different from dinner. (At least at Crossroads), a few stations are the same like the pizza station and burger station. But at the other places they rotate, and at blue plate special, they do something a little more "casual" for lunch.
