Saint Mary’s amends meal exchange program
Observer Staff Report | Thursday, May 2, 2019
Vice president for student affairs Karen Johnson announced further changes to Saint Mary’s’ co-exchange program in an email to the Saint Mary’s community Thursday.
Currently, the co-exchange — or “co-ex” — program allows pre-approved Saint Mary’s students to eat meals at Notre Dame at no additional cost. In March, however, the College announced plans to begin charging students $415 each semester to participate in the program.
After receiving feedback from the Saint Mary’s community, the College decided to continue providing for students “who are active members of the Notre Dame Marching Band, ROTC Cadets and/or engineering students at Notre Dame,” Johnson said in the email. “Saint Mary’s College will provide co-ex meals at Notre Dame for these students ONLY. All other students wishing to eat at Notre Dame need have (SIC) to pay directly at time of purchase.”
Information about how to apply for the co-ex program will be sent out this summer, Johnson said. Questions about the program may be sent to [email protected]
