One of my ex's went to Towson Univ. a I-AA school if you don't know...she wasn't an athlete (unless RAVER is a sport) and when I stayed over at her dorm, remember that she's not an athlete, she had prepaid meals and guest meals on her acct.
One swipe of her ID card, and she was allowed in the chow line (me too!).
I'm sure that scholarship athletes get AT LEAST that in terms of food.
I think that your friend is the exception to the rule...
Almost finished my 2002-2003 College Football raitings. Watch this space!!!
Hey, it depends on if your school serves edible food. I attended UNC-Asheville and never had a hard time finding something to eat. My girlfriend attends Sweet Briar College, where students seem to regularly get sick from the food they serve. She usually buys food from Wal-Mart and cooks it at school, but she usually has some money to spend. If my school didn't serve edible food, being the poor schmuck that I am, I'd be SOL.
Student athletes on scholarship get food, if by food we mean the three standard meals in the day. Now if we are talking about something to cure the midnight munchies, then probably not, but they shouldn't be starving.
Everything that is wrong in this world can be blamed on Freddie Prinze Jr.
