Dorms and Board?

Hi everyone!

I am attending Williams in the fall and I had a couple of questions.

First of all, when do you usually get your roommate/housing decisions? They told us by late July, but do you have any date that is more specific?

Second, about meal plans. I understand we are to have a 21 meal plan? How does that work? Do you have like some kind of daily budget and you have to take as much food as that budget allows or something?

Thanks :)

    1st question: no answer

    2nd question: 3 meals / day (breakfast, lunch, dinner) + 1 late night meal / day (@ Whitman or '82 grill) every day all days.

    I am not sure, so don't quote me on this, but I think the roommate decisions should come around the 20th. An upperclassman said so on the Facebook group.

    I have no more information than frozen on the second q.

    We got our housing info around the 20th if I remember correctly.

    Regarding food, you can use 21 meals per week in any way, but you can only get one breakfast, one lunch, one dinner, or one late night per day. So if you skip breakfast on Tuesday and don't get snack bar that night for example, you can get breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snack bar/'82 on Thursday. If you don't use all 21 by the end of the week, they do not roll over.

    I want to correct aw7722: with 21 meal plan, you can get both dinner and late night. I experimented with this and could confirm it.
