U. of S. Alabama starting mandatory meal plan

MOBILE, Ala. (AP) - Beginning next fall, University of South Alabama students living on campus will be required to purchase meal plans.

A meal plan costing $1,300 per semester is now mandatory for on-campus freshmen. The university's new $8.8 million dining facility is expected to be open next fall, and the university hopes it will be self-supporting with the help of the meal plans.

Elsewhere around the state, all on-campus students at the University of Alabama at Birmingham must buy meal plans. Auburn University is phasing in a mandatory meal plan for all students, while at the University of Alabama, only on-campus freshmen have to purchase meal plans.

South Alabama is traditionally a commuter school and just 1,700 of the school's 14,757 students live on campus this semester.
