5. Skip Dessert
Every meal ordered on the dining plan includes a dessert. However, if you aren't a “sweets” kind of person, you might be better off substituting the dessert for a soup or side salad. This will allow you to create a more filling meal, which in turn may allow you to share with another member of your party.
If you are able to share, you will save a snack credit, meaning you can have an additional meal later in your trip.
