Continuing Students: Procedure for Reserving Campus Housing Continuing on-campus students desiring to reserve on-campus housing for the fall must sign up for the room of their choice accord­ ing to the reservation schedule in the spring. Commuter students desiring to live on campus need to contact the Housing Manager. Commuter Students Students who live off campus are an important part of our university community. Because it may take more effort for commuter students to feel a part of a university community, commuter students are strongly encouraged to interact with those students living in resi­ dence halls and to participate in student life on campus. Involve­ ment in clubs and leade rship opportunities is strongly encouraged . For undergraduate students, the Student Senate and the Student Relations Board have designated positions which provide representa­ tional status for commuters. Information and services for commuter students, including commuter hostel housing, are handled through the Student Affairs Division and the Department of Auxiliary Services. Food Service Biola provides excellent food service for all students. A wide variety of entrees, sandwiches, soups, fresh fruits, bread, beverages, and desserts is offered. The food service staff will work out individual programs for students with specia l dietary requirements or weight reduction programs prescribed by a physician. A variety of meal plans are available. All students living in the residence halls are required to choose either a 10-, 12-, 15- or 20-flex meal plan. (The numbers indicated are meals per week.) A "flex" plan is 10, 12, 15 or 20 meals per week at Cafe Biola, our dining room, plus "flex points"to purchase additional meals either at Cafe Biola, the Eagles' Nest, our on-campus coffee shop, or Common Grounds, our coffee house.
