The Bison Cafe is “all-you-care-to-eat” for every meal, seven days a week. We welcome you to eat as much as you wish, but we do encourage you to think healthy. Take only what you can eat, and you are always welcome to come back for seconds.
No, they will not. If you miss a meal during the week or do not eat all of the meals (21, 12, 7 or 4) you are entitled to within any given week, the meal(s) WILL NOT carry over into the following week. Meal periods run from Friday morning to Thursday evening. Any meals not eaten during that week are not transferable or refundable. The Commuter meal plan offers students a number of meals for the entire semester with no weekly limits. Any meals not used at semester's end will not carry over to the following semester.
Dining Dollars is the declining balance part of your meal plan that can be spent at the customer’s option in all dining operations. It operates very much like a debit card. As the money is spent in places such as the Uncle Dave's, Local Eats, Starbucks, and Chic-fil-A Express, the purchases are subtracted from the beginning balance. Your Dining Dollars may also be used in the Dining Hall in addition to the "meals per week or semester" of your meal plan.
The Lipscomb Bucks program was created for Lipscomb University Students, Faculty and Staff to be the ultimate complement to the university dining experience. With Lipscomb Bucks, your campus ID card can be used at all on-campus Lipscomb Dining locations. You, your friends and family will be able to reload the funds online 24/7. Lipscomb Bucks will be available for purchase online at https://shop-lipscomb.sodexomyway.com.
If you purchase a meal plan, dining dollars are attached to the plan. Lipscomb Bucks may be purchased as an addition to Dining Dollars and can be refilled throughout the year. Dining Dollars and Lipscomb Bucks are for on-campus Lipscomb Dining locations only. Dining dollars carry over from Fall to Spring semester with the purchase of a Spring meal plan but expire at the end of the Spring semester. Lipscomb Bucks will rollover from semester to semester and year to year until graduation. Neither Lipscomb Bucks nor Dining Dollars are refundable.
Dining Dollars will roll over from the fall semester to the spring semester, with the purchase of a spring semester meal plan. Dining Dollars will NOT roll over from the spring semester to the fall semester. Dining Dollars is non-refundable. Any Dining Dollars remaining will be lost if not used by the end of the spring semester.
