Stadium to start accepting meal points
Students will now be able to use meal plan points and SoonerSense to purchase game day concessions at OU sporting events, starting with this Saturday’s football game against Utah State.
The change is aimed at making games more economical for students, said Lauren Royston, OU Housing and Food Services spokeswoman.
“Meal plan points may exclusively be used for concession food and drink items, and we’re confident that OU students will enjoy the convenience,” Royston said in an e-mail.
OU invested in terminals for the permanent concession stands around Oklahoma Memorial Stadium, and hopes to eventually expand the service to additional permanent concession stands over time, Royston said.
Freshmen who live on campus are required to purchase meal plans, which include various amounts of meal points.
University College freshman Matt Sperle has been to OU football games in the past, and he said he is glad he can put his meal points to use.
“It’s not coming out of my own pocket,” Sperle said.
Architecture junior Morgan Pinch said she would have taken advantage of the deal if she still had meal points.
Pinch said using her points for a bottle of water on a hot game day or hot chocolate in the winter would have allowed her to spend extra meal points.
Upperclassmen or commuter students may find additional information about purchasing meal plans online at food.ou.edu.
