USC Residential Dining Rights

165 Signatures Goal: 250

The Demands:

Remove the $100 fine on taking food out of USC Hospitality Residential Restaurant facilities.

Lift the ban on taking beverages out of USC Hospitality Residential Restaurants.

In 2012, the USDA calculated that the cost for a 14-18 year-old male to eat for nine months on a "liberal" spending plan would be $3,064.50, while the cost for a 14-18 year old female over the same time period and same "liberal" plan would be $2,681.10 (the nine month cost on the same plan for a 19-50 year-old male increases to $3,234.6 and the nine month cost for a 19-50 year-old female on the same plan increases to $2,871).

USC students who choose to live in residential halls are automatically enrolled in the Cardinal Meal Plan, which costs $5,100 over nine months. We feel that in paying this amount of money, that we have the right to a level of service that includes more control over the food and drink we consume on a daily basis. The ban on taking drinks out of Parkside Residential Restaurant limits our control over the our food and drink.
