Rutgers students oppose meal swipe policy at Cook Café

According to a petition started by students, the café no longer accepts meal swipes after 6 p.m.

NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J.—The Cook Café devised a meal swipe policy this semester to counter the 4,500 students moving through the Cook Campus Center each week at dinnertime.

But angry students have responded with a resolution and a petition to demand a reversal of the policy, which they say costs students money and convinience.

According to the petition, titled “Revise the Meal Swipe Policy at the Cook Campus Center,” the Café no longer accepts meal swipes after 6 p.m. The decision may affect the eating habits and lifestyles of students, particularly those who live on Cook campus.
