Given how expensive our meal plans are, Yale should offer food in its dining halls during Camp Yale.

As it is every year, friends have spent the last couple days greeting each other at college gates with suitcases and boxes in hand and stories of summer to share. The dorm rooms are open, and many students are moving back in, getting to know new neighbors and yet another problematic showerhead.

But for the next few days, upperclassmen have a problem: We have nowhere to eat. Though the freshman meal plan takes effect Saturday, other students must wait until Tuesday night for meal plans to kick in.

We’re all for supporting the wonderfully renovated Mory’s and other local restaurants, but Yale should be watching out for our pocketbooks. The University should step up and open at least a few of its dining halls this weekend for those students already back on campus.
