I've eaten at Subway, which is practically on Cleveland State's Campus, never been asked for College Id,,Most College Fast food places I know of serve the general public as well..
The key word is "practically".  Unless CSU added a Subway since I graduated from there 6 years ago, the Subway of which you speak is not on CSU property.

Now I'm hungry.  Thanks guys. >:-/

I know it isnt. why I said "Practically"..There were a lot of Students in there the last time I ate there..More accurately, It's just before The Cleveland State Buildings begin..

SJSU was interesting in that for most residential students, if you didn't eat at the Dining Commons, you could take your ID / meal card to the Student Union or the Pub and get cash credit towards whatever you wanted to eat there. So, worst case, you could always get a couple slices of pizza or a two-piece fried-chicken meal for the same swipe of the meal card that admitted you to the DC.

I happen to know that's the case at Northwestern now, and they've always seemed a bit behind the curve on such things, so I assume it's the case at pretty much every university in These Modern Times.

'Cept on Sundays, the Student Union and Pub were closed, so the DC knew they had a captive audience, and that was when they tried to serve up the fish that tasted like the underside of a pier and such.

Back in my day, the dining halls at Northwestern only served one meal on Sundays -- brunch. So dinner for those of us in the dorms always came from one of the many fine restaurants in the area, by which I mean half the time I had Papa John's delivered, and the other half I walked to the McDonald's on Orrington Avenue (thumbing my nose at the closest eatery to the south end of campus, The Worst Burger King in the World). But now the dining halls serve Sunday dinner, so I assume most of the fast-food places in downtown Evanston have closed.

That's also how it was when I was in school a decade ago. I can't remember if it happened every single time, but the school occasionally loaded everyone's student ID with $50 at the start of the semester. Otherwise, you'd add your own money whenever you wanted, and could use it at the student center, or at the library.

The college where I work offers the same option to students, and apparently faculty/staff as well (I keep forgetting to look into that). I believe your card may also be used at a few off-campus restaurants and businesses. When I was in school, there were rumors that my alma mater would do the same thing, but that never came to fruition. I'm thinking it's changed since I graduated.

Lord, I wish. As I write this, I'm sitting at my on-campus job, starving and out of Hoot Loot (our campus currency, since our mascot is an owl).

What's the exchange rate of Hoot Loot per Itchy & Scratchy dollar?

Still crazy after all these years...but that's okay.

I'm going to go with Southern Connecticut.

MSU tarting up their cuisine (hopefully not literally) makes sense.  Make it attractive enough and you get people you ordinarily wouldn't.

Spending money to make money.  What a novel idea.
