Crunching the numbers of the different Syracuse University meal plans reveals high prices, less food

A carton of eggs from a Tops supermarket range from 99 cents to $3. A bagel only costs up to $1. And a pound of bacon goes for $3.50.

Compared to those prices, Syracuse University overcharges for its meals—no matter how you slice it. Breakfast -– the cheapest meal of the day –- costs $8.50.

Despite cheap meals offered at stores and restaurants around campus, SU Food Services charges students significantly more money to eat at an on-campus dining hall.
