FAMILY MEAL PASS
The Wednesday before move-in is "New Student Move-In Day". On this day, new students checking into the residence halls will receive a "Family Meal Pass". This pass will allow those accompanying them for move-in to eat one meal in the dining hall of their choice (Lentz or Trueblood) on that day only. The pass may only be used once, so those using the pass must all go together to receive the complimentary meal.

MOVE-IN VOLUNTEER MEAL PASS
Move-in volunteers will receive a complimentary meal pass, valid in either dining hall, upon check in. This pass may be used at either dining hall. ALL other individuals may purchase a guest meal at the door.
