Power Players

Meet the 2022 College Power Players

Here are 41 of the country’s largest college dining programs and how they are operating this spring.

Unlike past years, the 2022 edition of FM’s College Power Players includes more than 25 entries—41 to be exact. The reason is that we felt that the current environment in which schools are still in an adjustment period regarding campus living and activities is impacting dining participation patterns, meal plan sales and operating hours.

In this edition of FM’s annual College Power Players feature, we provide a glimpse at where the listed programs stand in terms of resuming traditional operation, what initiatives in terms of new venues or offerings they recently added and where they currently are in emerging areas like mobile ordering options and meal delivery services.

The schools are ordered by the number of students living on campus the spring term as a matter of convenience and is not meant as any sort of “ranking”.

Here are the schools listed with links to their respective profile page in the following gallery…
