Student Life


At Alma College, the decision is not just about what to eat, but where to eat. Many dining options are available to please even the pickiest of palates.

Students can use their meal plans or Munch Money, which is money built into each meal plan, at our on-campus facilities: Joe’s Place, Hamilton Commons and the Dow Cart, all of which are run by Sodexo.

If you’re in the mood for a walk, you also can use your Munch Money at Alma’s off-campus dining partner, Pizza One.

Worried about running out of Munch Money? No worries! It can be purchased and added to your meal plan throughout the year.

Because we understand that students have busy schedules, you also can “exchange” a meal from your plan at Joe’s Place under the Meal Advantage option. This gives you the opportunity to build a quality, convenient meal on your own time, your own way.
