Power Players

The 2019 college dining Power Players

Here are the 25 college dining programs with the highest number of meal plans sold.

Here is our annual roundup of the recent activities of the largest college dining programs in the country as measured by the number of meal plans sold. In addition to the meal plan participation number, in each entry we have provided several other data points, from enrollment figures and meal plan cost ranges to the number of dining outlets—residential and retail—each program deploys. A short narrative accompanying each entry details some of the program’s recent initiatives.

While this listing is confined to the 25 colleges with the highest number of meal plans sold, we will in the near future complement it with a second college dining Power Players package highlighting some other major programs that didn’t make this list.
